It’s time to get some Lollipop on your Xiaomi Mi3 with the release of a Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM for Xiaomi’s previous flagship device.
Even by today’s standards the Xiaomi Mi3 has a killer specification that includes a powerful Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM and decent 5-inch 1080 display. With hardware like that, and an active fan base it was only a matter of time before Android 5.0 became available for the phone.
The ROM is available for the Mi3W, which is the WCDMA version of the phone, and the handset international owners should have in their hand. If you are feeling brave and want to test out the ROM then there are links to to the download at the end of the post, but be aware that not all features are working correctly.
As this is a beta ROM from a 3rd party source there are bound to be some issues and this is the case with NFC not currently supported, the ROM suffering random reboots, and the in ability to save record videos.
If you want to have a go at installing the ROM at your own risk you can download Android 5.0 for the Xiaomi Mi3 here, using this password: rmrd.
