The Chinese OEM Xiaomi is holding its strong position in the mobile market by launching affordable smartphones in the budget and mid-budget category. Most of the Xiaomi devices offer great value for money and the entry-level budget device named Redmi 8A is no exception here. Currently, the company is pushing MIUI 126.96.36.199 Global Stable ROM for Redmi 8A [V188.8.131.52.PCPMIXM] that you can download and install by following the guide below along with download links and requirements.
The new MIUI 184.108.40.206 update (Pie) for Redmi 8A is rolling out globally via OTA in a phased manner and will take a few days to appear on all the units. It brings the January 2020 Android Security Patch that fixes bugs and improves system security. Additionally, the update brings app vault and security optimization. If you want to install this update on your Redmi 8A (Codename: olivelite) then you can either check for OTA updates or manually flash the firmware from the full step-by-step guide below.
Manually Check OTA Updates
Keep in mind that all the incremental OTA update roll-out always hit a limited number of units initially. Then the broader roll-out process starts and takes some time to arrive on all the units completely. So, it’s better to check for OTA updates manually to get notified.
In order to do that, go to the phone Settings > About Phone > Software update. Additionally, you can perform this task via the Software Updater app directly. If the software version V220.127.116.11.PCPMIXM is available, you can grab it.
Before downloading the OTA update, make sure to charge the phone battery up to 50% minimum and connect to a Wi-Fi network.
