It is still a fun thing to have the old school MIUI 9 running on your Xiaomi device. Well, I don’t know your reasons to not upgrade your phone to the latest possible MIUI version.
However, it is a big chance that your phone is still running MIUI 9 based on either Android 7.1 Nougat or 8.1 Oreo.
There is no way to receive Android 9.0 Pie update on MIUI 9 devices. Despite this fact, you can still have a taste of deliciousness of Android 9 Pie through two options:
- Flashing custom Android ROM based on 9.0 Pie.
- Installing custom theme to resemble Android 9.0 Pie.
While the first option may not be suitable for most users, it is the more reliable and recommended option. You may get latest security patch released within Android Pie.
The only challenging issue is the flashing process itself. Flashing a custom ROM need a specific amount of bravery as one of its formula. Doing it wrong may end up in a broken device.
The second option, nevertheless, is the easiest one. It will change nothing on your phone except its looks and feels.
Enter Pure Android P! It is a theme specially designed for MIUI 9 devices.
The name suggests what this theme will look like.
It offers the pureness of Android Pie ported from Google Pixel 2 XL. It transforms your Xiaomi phone running MIUI 9 to be a Google Pixel phone.
It inherits the awesomeness of Pie styles and user interfaces. Most of its UI have been themed heavily.
Thanks to its creator: Rizal_noerman. He has managed to bring the Pixel 2 XL UI style to fit in MIUI 9. The theme will “upgrade” your Redmi or Redmi Note phone to Android 9.0 Pie.
