Download the patched version of the Mi Themes app for any Xiaomi, Redmi, and Redmi Note phones. This version is a modded version of the MIUI Themes app that has been patched to accommodate the ability to import themes downloaded from third-parties.
Xiaomi has restricted the import function in the original Themes app since MIUI 10. Thus, users without a Xiaomi Designer account will not be able to install third-party theme’s MTZ files.
Meanwhile, there are many cool MIUI themes not available from the official MIUI Themes Store. Those themes usually do not pass the official theme checks mechanism due to many factors.
This patched Themes app available below comes solving the restriction available within the stock Themes app (MIUI 10 and MIUI 11). Hence, users can easily install any MIUI theme files even without a designer account.
