Install Android 13 MIUI 14 Recovery/Fastboot ROM on Xiaomi

In this guide, we will show you three different methods to install the latest Android 13 MIUI 14 Recovery and Fastboot ROM onto your Xiaomi/Redmi/Poco device. Soon after Google rolled out the thirteenth iteration of the OS, Xiaomi was quick to jump on the bandwagon. Within weeks, it rolled out its MIUI 14 build based on that OS. At the time of writing, a few eligible devices have already been blessed with this update and plenty more are waiting in line to welcome it.

But as opposed to other devices that follow a single firmware rule, Xiaomi has two different firmware files and also numerous methods to flash these files. While having many options at hand is always a good idea, however, in some instances, it might create some confusion in the mind of the users as to the perks and risks [if any] associated with each of these approaches and more importantly which method they should ultimately opt for.

Well, if you have any queries as well, then it’s time to put all these doubts to rest. In this guide, we will make you aware of various methods [and their benefits/risks] through which you could install the latest Android 13 MIUI 14 Recovery and Fastboot ROM onto your Xiaomi/Redmi/Poco device. So without any further ado, let’s get started.
