Poco X3 Pro MIUI 12.5 Update

Poco X3 Pro users in India can update their device to MIUI 12.5 Update. Although, as I said earlier, it is in a rolling phase and available for select phones. So, you can check the system updates, if it’s available then you can update your device. In case it is not available, but you’re in a hurry, then you can also update your Poco X3 Pro manually with recovery ROM. Here’s the link.

Before upgrading your smartphone, I recommend you to take a backup, before diving into the process and charge your device to at least 30%.

To sideload the recovery ROM package (Update file), you need to head over to the system settings > updates, then select the update package manually. Then, allow the prompts to install the build.

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