for some reason I am unable to download from my redmi note direct from the en.miui.com website because it gives a loop error no matter if I use the miui browser or google chrome on my phone. to resolve the issue what i had to do is:
1. download on PC from en.miui.com website.
Then flash using Method A ( updater ) or B ( recovery) .
Method A - using Updater
2a. Connect your phone to the computer, and put the ROM file to the folder /downloaded_rom in the SD card.
3a. Open Updater on the homescreen, press the Menu button.
4a. Select update package. Choose the ROM pack you want to flash, and select Update now.
Method B - Recovery
2b. copy zip to SD card
3b. boot to recovery (power+volume down)
4b. (optional - but I recommend it) wipe/factory reset
5b. install zip
