    I don't think, but flash it with cwm isn't difficult ;)

    Ps. Don't flash CameraNext, it's got a bug and you phone don't boot.

    -Do a backup with titanium backup

    -Download the sMIUI ROM

    -Download CWM (link)

    -Rename CWM in "update.zip" and put it on sdcard/

    -Shut down your phone and go on Recovery Mode (POWER with Vol +)

    -Select english and Flash Update.zip on system1

    -Now reboot on recovery and you have cwm recovery

    -If you want to have two roms go on advace and set TDB (True Dual Boot) on True. Select the system you want to change

    -Flash a zip from sdcard and select the rom. CWM opens AROMA installer, where you can select optional things tl install. If you don't want any optional things you can tap Default Installation.

    -Do a wipe data. It deletes all your apps, but not the sdcard, wgere you save all photos, download, whatsapp chats...
    Reboot and restore your backup.


    When you update sMIUI, flash the rom and reboot without any wipe.

    IMO, I'd stay on v5 until a real developer v6 rom is released for mi2/mi2s.
