Ho to update to MIUI 7 global stable build

Those who are running the stable version of MIUI 5 or 6 can directly update their devices through the OTA. Simply open the 'Updater' app then check for update. Press Update option if you see a new version. Once the download is complete, press Reboot now.

Head over to MIUI forum if you are looking for alternative methods such as flashing recovery ROM or, using Mi PC suite. But do not forget to create a backup of all data of your phone before you perform an installation manually. Performing an OTA is safe but if you are flashing the full ROM, creating a backup is highly recommended. Head over to official MIUI forum to know more about the stable build of MIUI 7.
