As promised before, the official Windows 10 Mobile ROM for the Xiaomi Mi4 is now available for download. Xiaomi Mi4 users interested in giving Microsoft’s mobile operating system a run can download the ROM from MIUI forums and flash it on your device. It’s worth mentioning that the ROM is only compatible with the LTE version of the Xiaomi Mi4. So, Indian users with the Mi4 may be disappointed to know that they are not eligible to flash Windows 10 Mobile on their handsets.
If you’re unsure, you can sign up for the Microsoft’s Insiders program and get the download link as well as the flashing instructions so that you don’t make a mistake. Before you flash, make sure to create a backup of the device so you don’t lose your data.
It’s also worth mentioning that the ROM is still unfinished and may have bugs, so think before you flash it on your device. If you come across any bug, make sure to provide your feedback about it so it can be fixed.
We’re hoping that Microsoft will work with other key smartphone manufacturers and bring the Windows 10 ROM on to some of the popular smartphones as well.
(Update) Gabe Aul just tweeted that you can not only run Windows 10 Mobile on the Mi4, but run Windows Insider builds on it as well:
