After a long wait, Xiaomi has finally started rolling out the next stable version of MIUI 8, which is MIUI 188.8.131.52 for Redmi 4A (Global Market). So, if you are Redmi 4A owner, you can check the “Software Update” section for the OTA notification. Now, one thing to notice here is, OTA update takes time to reach to every corner, so there is a huge chance that your Redmi 4A wouldn’t show any OTA update available.
Now, in such case, you can download the update and install it manually on your device in few easy steps. Another thing you should know before going into the installation process, Xiaomi has already released the beta version of MIUI 9 for Redmi 4A, so if you prefer MIUI 9 over MIUI 8, you can directly install this MIUI 9 Global Beta version. But if you are a stable version fan, go with this MIUI 184.108.40.206 Global Stable version.
