Xiaomi has been the dominant smartphone vendor in India for the past five quarters, maintaining its lead position in the market. Earlier this year when Xiaomi launched the Poco F1 flagship smartphone at an aggressive pricing, it did make a few heads turn. Besides top of the line hardware such as Snapdragon 845 SoC, up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, with a starting price of Rs 20,999, the company did manage to surprise everyone.

Now, according to a report on XDA Developers, Xiaomi has started rolling out open beta update for the smartphone. This means, any user who cannot wait for the official software rollout can go ahead and try out the Android 9 Pie build before everyone else.

You can download the Recovery ROM from here http://bit.ly/2Du4dHB, and flash it using the recovery update tool. Simply download the ROM (ZIP file) and save it in the root directory of the internal storage of the smartphone. Next, go to Settings > About Phone > System Update. Here, tap on the three dots on the top right corner, choose update package (select the downloaded ZIP file). It will verify the package and ask you to reboot the smartphone. Once the installation is done, the smartphone will reboot on its own, and if everything goes right, you will be on Android 9 Pie beta.

The other way to go about this is to download the fastboot ROM from here http://bit.ly/2QTYOO6 and flash it using the Mi Flash Tool. Flashing instruction details can be found here http://bit.ly/2S3ko2N.

Disclaimer: Being a beta update, it may contain a few bugs. We do not recommend flashing the ROM on a smartphone that is your daily driver. Proceed with caution.
