The Windows 10 Mobile ROM is now finally available for Xiaomi's Mi 4. The ROM allows you to bypass Android and install a fully-functional build of Windows 10 Mobile on the handset. However, there's a caveat. The ROM is only available for the LTE-enabled version of the handset, and as such Mi 4 devices sold in India (Mi 4W) are ineligible to flash Windows 10, at least for the time being.
Microsoft has made the ROM available on the handset to solicit feedback from Xiaomi fans, who tend to be some of the most vocal on the planet. In addition, the Redmond giant stands to gain a host of new users registering for its services and paying for content on the Windows 10 Store.
Interested in checking out how Windows 10 Mobile fares on the Mi 4? Head to the links below to download the flashing tool, and register for the Windows Insiders program to get your hands on the latest Windows 10 Mobile build.
Once again, the ROM only works on the LTE-enabled model, so make sure you have the right variant before proceeding. Also, given that this is new territory, there are bound to be bugs.
