These beta versions are intended for developers and are released only as a Fastboot ROM. Accordingly, to install Android 13 on Xiaomi and Redmi you will have to sacrifice all the data on your device. Therefore, if you plan to install the update, we recommend that you back up your data in advance.
You will also need to unlock the bootloader, which is a problem for regular users. If you are a simple user, we do not recommend installing the beta version yet because some features of your phone may not work or behave incorrectly. That’s why it’s beta.
