But first, Xiaomi wants the support of its enthusiastic fans, to test the new OS before it is released to the public en masse in coming months.

[Note: User must be tech savvy with a basic understanding of ROM and manual flashing. Most importantly; if you are using the Mi Mix 2 as your primary device, beware of the risk involved, as beta ROM will contain bugs and may affect the performance or some instances might brick the device and render it useless. God forbid, if the device does get bricked, you cannot sue the company. You are better off waiting for the OTA (Over The Air) update, which is far easier to install and is expected start in a few months time]
