MIUI 12.5 for Poco X3

As we mentioned earlier, the update is currently available in India, but soon other regions will catch up with the same update. And as usual, the MIUI 12.5 for Poco X3 is also rolling out in batches, which means it can take time to reach on all the devices. You will get the update notification on your phone when it’s available. Sometimes the update notification doesn’t work and in that case, you can manually check for the update from Settings.

Fortunately, the Poco X3 MIUI 12.5 OTA Zip and Recovery ROM are available which means if anyone wants the update immediately then can manually install using the file.

  • Poco X3 MIUI 12.5 Update (India) [Recovery ROM]
  • Poco X3 MIUI 12.5 Update (India) [OTA Zip] (for V12.0.2.0)

Before upgrading your smartphone, I recommend taking a backup, before diving into the process and charge your device to at least 50%.

To sideload the OTA zip on V12.0.2.0, you need to head over to the Settings > About Phone > MIUI Update > Three dots > Choose Update package, then select the update package manually. Then, allow the prompts to install the build.

Once the installation process is completed, reboot your Poco X3 before start using it. That’s it.
