Android 14 download is now available and we have seen some development around the same for many devices. This time it is the Android 14 for Mi 9.

Mi 9 was launched with Android 9 and is supported to be upgraded to Android 11 ; which means the Mi 9 will NEVER receive the OEM official Android 14 in future!

But if you are eager to try the Android 14 then, you can try any custom ROM such as this HyperOS built for Mi 9. You can try the same but make sure you read the DISCLAIMER below and follow the instructions in the exact steps written.
