Hello, first-time user of Mi2S & MIUI. When I got my phone, I flashed the English-only MIUI build (using the original Xiaomi recovery to system 1). However later I found out that OTA only works for the Multilang build (this should really be in the FAQ). So now I want to flash Multilang. Can I just use the same procedure (rename file to update.zip, put in root folder, reboot to recovery, flash to system 1) or do I need CWM or something else? What about all my installed apps and their settings? Sorry, I'm still a newb and trying to learn. Thx

I got my Xiaomi MI 2S This week. When I got it , it was 3.11.25 build.
I immediately got an OTA via the Updater and I upgraded it to 3.11.1.

Now that the 3.11.8 has been released , I am not getting it in OTA.
Have attached screenshots for the same.

This makes me get worried about my Xiaomi being a fake. But Antutu benchmark is as promised, about 27,000.

Are you on the multilang or English only ROM?

According to the FAQ, English only ROM does not get an ota

I might have English ROM since in 'Languages and input' there is only English and Chinese.
Will flash 3.11.8 Multilang and check if OTA works this Friday. :) thanks
