Friends,as you all know that 17th June’2016 was the date announced by Xiaomi for the release of MIUI 8 developer ROM.
We waited for its global release till night but we didn’t got any update. So,finally we decided to flash MIUI 8 China developer ROM 6.6.17 on Redmi 2 Prime,which is of 607 MB (Recovery ROM)

Note : Earlier I was using Global stable ROM 7.2.1 & I flashed this ROM using TWRP recovery v3 by first wiping everything except storage.

On the way : When ROM was flashing I was getting excited & the flashing didn’t took much time. But after the successfull installation of ROM,device took lots of time to reboot which require patience.

After flashing : Finally device rebooted & we got this,
