The POCO X2 marks POCO’s return to the smartphone market in 2020 after a brief hiatus following the release of the POCO F1 in 2018. With a 120Hz display, 64MP quad-camera setup, a big 4,000 mAh battery with 27W fast-charging support, and more importantly, an aggressive price, the POCO X2 manages to set its own identity despite not being a direct successor à la POCO F2. The POCO X2 was launched with MIUI 11 based on Android 10.

How to Install POCO X2 software update

Stock ROM updates come for the POCO X2 in two formats: Recovery ROM and Fastboot ROM. As the name implies, Recovery ROMs need to be installed through the recovery or through the Local Update method, while Fastboot ROMs need to be installed through Fastboot using the MiFlash tool.

Recovery ROM Installation

Recovery ROMs come with a .zip file extension and can be installed either through the Local Update method from within MIUI, or through the stock recovery. You can also use a custom recovery for installing these ROMs, though do note that device-specific instructions may differ.

  1. Local Update method:
    1. Transfer the download .zip file to your phone, and ensure you place the file in the “downloaded_rom” folder in the internal storage of your device. If no such folder exists, create one in your internal storage base directory.
    2. Within your phone, navigate to Settings > About Phone > System Update, and then press the three-dot icon in the top-right corner, and select “Choose Update Package”.
    3. If the “Choose Update Package” option is missing, tap on the MIUI logo 10 times to activate the option.
    4. Choose the downloaded .zip file.
    5. Wait for the update to install.
  2. Recovery method:
    1. Rename the downloaded .zip file to update.zip and transfer it to the base directory of your phone’s internal storage.
    2. Reboot your phone into recovery mode by powering it off and then pressing both the Power and the Volume Up buttons together.
    3. Scroll to the “Install update.zip” option using the volume keys, and select the option using the power button.
    4. Wait for the update to install.
    5. Choose the “Reboot” option if your phone does not reboot by itself after installation is completed.

Fastboot ROM Installation

Fastboot ROMs come with a .tgz file extension and need a Windows computer to install. All user data is also usually wiped when installing Fastboot ROMs, so keep that in mind. In addition to the .tgz file for your phone, you would also need Xiaomi’s official MiFlashTool / MIUI ROM Flashing Tool installed on your Windows computer, and the latest version of this tool can be downloaded officially from here.

  1. Download the Fastboot ROM .tgz file onto your Windows computer, and double click on it to decompress it.
  2. Open the file folder for the decompressed ROM and copy the file path for this folder. You will need to paste the file path address in MiFlash in the forthcoming steps.
  3. Reboot your phone into Fastboot mode by powering it off and then pressing the Power and Volume Down buttons together.
  4. Connect your phone to your computer with a USB cable.
  5. Run MiFlash.exe on your computer.
  6. Paste the file path from Step 2 above in MiFlash’s address bar. Alternatively, you can also locate the decompressed ROM folder location using the “Select” button.
  7. Click the “Refresh” button in MiFlash, which should prompt MiFlash to automatically recognize your device.
  8. Once your device is recognized, click the “Flash” button in MiFlash. This will start flashing the ROM file to your device.
  9. The progress bar within MiFlash will turn green eventually, indicating that the ROM has been successfully installed. Your device should automatically reboot to the new update, and you can then disconnect your phone.
