Download Xiaomi Mi3 Marshmallow Update: CM13 and other ROMs

Here are some great custom ROMs that bring the Marshmallow update to Xiaomi Mi3 unofficially. The device should be getting the official Android 6.0 update from Xiaomi too, but till that comes, you can rely on the ROMs to be able to use Marshmallow update on your Mi3.

Ever since ICS, when Google revamped the Android stock UI, bringing in Holo UI, and more so with Lollipop, when Google introduced us to material UI, we have found the Xiaomi’s own MIUI simply quite inadequate. That changed a little when the company rolled out its new UI, but all in all, stock UI in Marshmallow beats MIUI completely.

So, if you are a fan of stock Android UI, you are simply gonna love these unofficial Marshmallow updates for Mi3. And then there’s more to it: you get theming, customization options, extra features and frequent updates.

On Android 6.0, you get new features from the update on Mi3 too, obviously. The famous Doze mode, greater app permissions, advanced app info screen, etc. all make way to your Mi3.
