How to update Redmi Note 8 Pro to latest MIUI 12 firmware?
- Make sure your device is on the latest stable ROM.
- Download the MIUI 12 OTA update zip from above.

- Launch the updater app on your Redmi Note 8 Pro device. Or go to settings > about phone > system updates.
- Click on three dots on the top right corner and choose the ROM package.
- Select the Android OTA zip you have downloaded. It will decrypt and update your Redmi device.
Note: Don’t stop the update once started. If stopped, you will need to do the operation again right from downloading the firmware file again. This will not erase any data in your phone.
