  1. Just wanted to know if features of MIUI 8 like daul apps and second space work on the REDMI 2 Prime(Currently it has android KitKat). And also as far as I know these features work on REDMI 2 prime but if the phone runs on android lollipop. So please also tell if and how I can update my phone to lollipop?

    1. Hi Rhugaved,
      Dual App & Second space feature not work in Redmi 2 Prime as of now. Current MIUI 8 version is based on KitKat. Soon you receive MIUI 8 Marshmallow based for your Redmi 2 Prime.
      If you want to use Lollipop then you need to flash Stock Android ROM in your Redmi 2 Prime.
      Kind Regards

  2. I’m currently using V7.5.3.0.LHJMIDE (MIUI7) (Lollipop) (Stable) in my Redmi 2 Prime. I tried upgrading it into MIUI 8 but didn’t succeeded. And error prompted every time when i tried to upgrade it. The error message was “the update file is corrupted” which is not. Because i upgraded 2 phones with the same ROM file having Android Kitkat (Redmi 2 Prime with MIUI 7 Ver. Version: V7.1.3.0.KHJMICK). Please guide me how i can update my phone to MIUI 8.

    1. Hi Probin Pathak,
      Please check the ROM file which you download. there is a chance, maybe your ROM file is corrupt. Please wait for some time If you are on Stable ROM then you receive MIUI 8 OTA soon in your mobile.
      Kind Regards
