Also for the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, the update fixes the issue that was pushing the devices to ask users to log in when they enable sync messages from Mi Cloud in the Messaging app. The update also fixes the force close of a “security core component” that surfaces when holding the Menu key in the ‘Dual app’ search bar. However, it is yet to roll out on the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro as the latest update is said to be currently suspended for both models.

According to the instruction on MIUI Forum, if you’re already using MIUI 7, MIUI 8, or MIUI 9 stable ROM, you can update your handset to MIUI 10 using the fastboot method. There is a detailed instruction on how to do that on the MIUI forum. But in the case of users with models running MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM, the latest update can be availed by going to “settings” and then check for updates from the “About phone” section. Such users can also update compatible models using the Updater app.
