MIUI 8 Global and China Beta ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus

MIUI 8 Logo

The most beautiful MIUI 8 has finally arrived for Xiaomi devices and so for our YU Yureka. So after MIUI 7, here comes my MIUI 8 Global and China Beta/Developer ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus.

The new version of MIUI is indeed colorful with its redesigned beautiful UI. System app like Dialer, Calendar, Contacts are more colorful and the color tones used are more refreshing. The notification shade now offers a much more dynamic experience, with core functions exposed and hidden through delicate scrolling. The system UI is now smoother and battery backup is much improved. Many new features are also added.

This MIUI 8 Global/China Developer ROM is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. This Custom ROM is ported from xiaomi.eu unofficial MIUI 8 weekly release which is fully translated into English and is multilingual. Thus, this MIUI 8 is actually a Global version.

Remember this MIUI 8 ROM is not an official release from MIUI team; this is just a ported ROM from Redmi 3. And MIUI 8 is itself in Beta stage so don’t expect zero bug.

Disclaimer: This ROM has been tested and verified to be stable for daily use but there may be some unknown bugs. The development team is not responsible for any damage to your device or your information.

What’s New in MIUI 8?

The brand new MIUI 8 comes with many new features:
  • New redesigned colorful UI and fonts, and a new notification shade which comes with weather information, search bar etc.
  • New MIUI 8 Gallery, Wallpaper Carousel, Scanner, Camera, Calculator, Notes and many more.
  • Spam/scam message detection
  • System optimized for power saving and app management, so more power and smoother user experience. It also comes with new Power Saving Mode.
  • Second Space – this is just like making a second account in Windows PC where you can keep different apps, photos and files and every setting will be different i.e. just like a different phone!!
  • Cloned Apps – using this feature you can clone apps like WhatsApp, Hike etc. and use two different WhatsApp etc. with different accounts on the same phone.
  • Screenshot preview and Long Screenshot
  • Touch assistant for shortcuts anywhere

Some Tips

  • After first boot you may feel little lag but it will go after few hours of use. So don't panic.
  • MIUI does not support NTFS file system. So better use FAT formatted SD Card and USB. But if you have already a NTFS formatted SD Card then use Paragon exFAT, NTFS & HFS+ App to mount it.
  • You may feel little battery drain since it is still in beta stage. It will be fixed in the upcoming builds. (Fixed in Latest builds after 6.6.30)
  • Do not flash MIUI Official OTA Updates, it will BRICK your device.

  1. Will u provide further updates of this ROM. I love Miui. But, future updates is also necessary for new features & stable ROM.

    1. Of Course. Future updates will be released with the Official MIUI updates along with my own bug-fixes. :)

  2. Hello,

    Can you provide this rom for yu yuphoria devices with multilang (english)

    1. Actually I don't have Yuphoria. But I'll ask @Divyansh747 to port it for you guys.

    2. is this a 64bit rom and where can i find one

    3. This is a 64 bit ROM. If you are using stock Kitkat (COS 11) ROM then you have to upgrade to 64 bit by flashing COS 12 Official Update before flashing this ROM.

  3. I just flashed miui 8 yesterday and the rom is smooth and looks good.but i am facing a lot of heating issues and also a lot of battery drain(dosent last above 2 And half hours).will flashing the smiui mod help?

    1. sMIUI Mod will help to some extent. And also use Kernel Adiutor to decrease minimum CPU and GPU frequency. And do not over clock CPU or GPU.

      Since the ROM is in beta stage it has some minor bugs. But it will be fixed in upcoming updates.

  4. nitesh..thanks for miui8 for yureka.
    but i fell some lag while scrolling the home menu..
    so please tell me what i do
    i have razorrebor v1.8 kernel

    1. Don't use Razor 1.8 kernel with this ROM. Either use the default kernel or Eximious v8.

      Very soon MIUI 8 based on android 5.0 is going to be released with Razor 1.8 kernel inbuilt.

  5. @Nitesh Prasad
    nice rom ..... but i have some issue ... with jio 4g sim.... signal was showing but internet not working properly ..... only in jio 4g .... plz help

    1. Jio 4G sim is working in this ROM. Already tested.

      Check you internet pack, APN and network settings. And use the latest build.

  6. Hello Bro..MIUI * is awesome installed the old version MIUI 8 v6.6.30 ..which has gud smooth but heating and charge drain but this update u have rectified ..i have downloaded the new version..i have some doubts in it..I want to wipe again all data ..like first or just lik upgrading..and in that the second space will work or not..as in that old version it was not working..

    1. You must do a clean flash since the ROM has been downgraded to Android 5.0.2. Second Space is still not fixed.

  7. After updating latest rom i.e miui8 6.7.29
    my phone goes into bootloop
    i have yu yureka
    Please help

    1. Do a clean flash. Dirty flash on the previous build won't work since it is based on Android 5.0.2.

  8. i cant download any file via data or bluetooth tethering after installing this rom on my yureka plus. it says download size require wifi. how can i fix this issue. help plz

  9. Can you please port miui8 for one plus 2?

  10. sir i have a yuyureka and in this i hav mui 7 rom and i want to know whwther jio sim will work in it or i have to flash mui 8 rom plszz tell asap

    1. Jio may work on MIUI 7 but in MIUI 8 it is confirmed to work fluently.

  11. Hullo Bro..only data for Jio..Will u update Voice also for Jio..??

    1. It requires compatible firmware which can only be released by the company, YU Televentures officially.

  12. after the recent update i.e. 17.09.2016 – ROM Port MIUI 8 (v6.9.8) Developer ROM my Yureka is heating and battery performance is also very weak compared to previous versions.

    1. Try flashing the RazorReborn v1.8 kernel. Link is given above.

  13. I recently flashed the v6.8.25 on my Yureka, I have battery drain issues, should I try the new v6.9.8? Any suggestions?

  14. Notes brother
    Any bugs
    I love your work
    Please reply me about issues of anything
    Thanks bro!!!!!

  15. Bro , I admire your hard work . I messed up my yu+ so I downloaded MIUI8 (698) and flashed it many times on which it had Cyan12.0 YNG1TAS34J previously with twrp and supersu . But unfortunately It doesn't come out of loop now even after flashing with ur miui8 several hundred times.

    Any suggestion would be highly appreciated . Thanks for ur dedication .

    1. Try flashing other ROMs and check whether you face bootloops. Currently battery problem is common in Yureka because of their low build quality.

    2. But I Try flashing while on charger cable .

      I tried also your MIUI7.5 with bug fix , it keeps it's habit of being in endless loops still . Any hope ? Should I throw it in the bin or what ?

    3. Just go to the nearest Micromax Service Center and ask for Yureka Battery. It will cost you Rs. 500 /-, no need to throw your phone. :p

  16. That's it ! That's all I needed . This kept my hope alive , is all your words . I have gained faith in YU( i.e. You ) .

    Once again , Thanx . I will straight head towards a nearby shop next mornin'.

  17. hi bro i wanted to know that do i have to flash the 15 sec boot patch along with the rom at the same time or by flashing the rom first and then flashing the boot patch after that.

    and is it neccessary to flash the razorborn kernel or is it already included in the v6.9.8 (Android 5.0.2).

    1. You have to flash 15-Sec-Patch along with the ROM.
      The ROM includes Dominator Formula X kernel. You may flash razor reborn if required.

    2. and as i am currently using miui 7 rom based on android 5.0.2 so while flashing this rom it wont cause any problem na

  18. @The Lyricist
    As long as I believe , The 15sec patch is just the cache partition image , built already .
    When we boot for the first time after Flashing new rom , The phone builds that very cache partition , which needs time ( 10 mins max for my case , I think .). If you already patch the cache stuff , the phone doesn't need to make cache further , as it gets what it demands after 1st boot . So , is the 15sec patch .

    1. Yeah, you're right to some extent. It contains Dalvik Cache + Some /data files.
