If you haven’t received OTA update, need not to worry as it might take couple of days to appear on your device notification tray. You can also use the ‘Updater’ app to manually check for updates. But users on MIUI 8 Global Developer ROM or any other custom rom will not receive OTA update. These Xiaomi Mi 3/ 4 users need to flash fastboot ROM in order to enjoy MIUI 126.96.36.199 Global Stable update. Just follow below steps to download and flash MIUI 8 global stable ROM on Mi 3/ 4.
