Xiaomi has finally enabled the Mi 4 users to experience Windows 10 right on their devices. There is a new Windows 10 Mobile release that you can install using a provided one click method.
The new Windows 10 Mobile ROM is specifically designed for the Xiaomi Mi 4 LTE version. This means that the build is compatible with the Chinese version of the Mi 4, but not with the Mi 4 in India as it has a different hardware. Also, the build may have some serious bugs as it is available for testing purposes.
Xiaomi has updated the flashing tool MiFlash to version 20150601 to enable Windows 10 Mobile installation on the Mi 4. This new tool comes with one click installation method to ease the installing on the flagship smartphone.
How to flash the Xiaomi Mi 4 with Windows 10 Mobile ROM:
Step 1 – Download the updated MiFlash tool on your computer and then extract the content from the zip file. Thereafter, find the MiFlash20150601.exe to begin the installation. The installation process may begin by asking you for administration access and may require drivers for the smartphone. Just complete the process accordingly and hit the ‘Finish’ button when done.
Step 2 – Once you’ve installed the flashing tool on your computer, connect the Mi 4 to your computer and open the MiFlash tool from programs. Now select ‘Flash all except storage’ option from the bottom. This will enable the installation process on the local storage but will not make any changes to personal content like pictures or music files.
Step 3 – After selecting the option, just hit the ‘Flash’ button from the top to complete the flashing process. Make sure that you need to sign-up for Windows Insider program. This will enable the testing of the new Windows 10 ROM on your Mi 4.
If all done well, you’ll now have Windows 10 Mobile ROM on your Xiaomi Mi 4. This will also bring Microsoft’s proprietary features such as Windows Hello and Cortana integration. However, the flashing process will completely remove Android existence and MIUI from your smartphone.
