Guide to Install MIUI v6 ROM on OnePlus One

The OnePlus One can be described as an incredible phone and there are a lot of custom ROMs one could test. The most difficult one is the MIUI and specifically the v6 version. There was a group who worked on this project, but the project was cut off due to reasons unknown. It appears that someone is working on this in the background. We’ve obtained a flashable zip that was released or built on April 27, 2015 . And guess what? It’s the MIUI version 6! We wrote an article about how to install the Official MIUI v5 on the OnePlus One and we are returning that comes with MIUI V6. It is important to note that this is not the official version, but our first tests have been successful. Let’s roll:


  • We strongly suggest that you make an Nandroid copy of the current OS
  • Your phone must be root
  • Your phone must have an individual recovery, and we suggest TWRP
  • This isn’t an official version, but rather a version that was released on the 27th of April. It’s stable to date however there could be minor bugs that won’t impact daily activities. We will report them as we find them in our tests.

Note: Unlocking Bootloader completely erases the entire device’s data, which includes internal memory. Therefore, be sure to make backups of everything important to you.
