Hi everyone, on my Mi Note (not Pro) I'm stuck with MIUI 7 (version 5.12.11 | Beta) and I'd like to upgrade to Android 6.0 based MIUI.

From ROMs download section I can see that the last weekly is 6.4.21.

How can I update w/o loosing my data / apps?

I've the default MIUI recovery, just installed xiaomi.eu rom while ago.

Thank you for the support.

Anyone with some tutorial / step-by-step guide?
I am not sure if this is possible at all, like one could do with upgrading their Windows :)

I guess you could try doing a full NANDROID backup and then flashing 6.0 -based ROM without wiping your data partition.

While I personally don't believe you will have a big chance for success in upgrading your system this way, you will still be able to restore to where you were.

What is your reason to upgrade?

In your case I would install all again. It's a very different version.
I know it's boring but worthwhile
