Install Stable MiUi 9.2 on Micromax Canvas Nitro a311/a310/Coolpad F1

Hey, there this is a quick tutorial on flashing or installing latest MiUi 9.2 on Micromax canvas Nitro a311, a310, and Coolpad F1. Although I don’t own a Coolpad F1 so I couldn’t test this MiUi 9 ROM on Coolpad F1. But it will work perfectly fine on a Coolpad F1. Stay assured because the developer of this ROM owns a Coolpad F1.

And yes I own a Micromax canvas nitro a311 myself. I don’t own a canvas nitro a310 myself but one of my friends does. He was kind enough to lend me his device for testing purpose. He ended up keeping this MiUi 9 ROM on his device instead of the stock one. It is stable enough to be used as daily driver, he really liked it.

-Minor issues and their Solution if possible

On Coolpad F1 there should be absolutely no issues not even minor ones. It is supposed to be absolutely bugless on Coolpad F1. However, note that I couldn’t test it on this particular device.

Now let’s talk about a310. I tested this ROM on a310 and found no bugs at all. Yes, auto rotation doesn’t work by default but it can be easily patched by using “Rotation control” app. So I don’t like to identify this as a bug.

a311 faced 2 minor issues.  Auto brightness doesn’t work and volume up button decreases volume instead of increasing it. But no worries patch is now released for a311. Download and flash the patch from the link above.

Please kindly ignore this whole paragraph, I wrote this paragraph at the time when the patch for a311 was not available. Thank you. Or you could flash MiUi 8 on your a311 instead. I used it for almost a year on my canvas nitro a311. It is stable to the core, not even a single tiny bug, it is a perfectly perfect ROM. Sound it loud and everybody knows battery performance is best on all MiUi ROMs. And on top of that, there isn’t much difference between Miui 8 and 9, to be honest. Both are on Android KitKat 4.4.2
