Xiaomi Mi 4c’s Stock ROM:
The Stock ROM is that of which comes with your phone when you buy it and open it out of the box. Moving back to a stock ROM is about lots of conditions like when you bricked your device, when you want your phone’s warranty back and when any custom ROM wants you to flash it on stock ROM — not any custom ROM. Below are the links of two stock ROMs; one is the one which comes with your phone and is latest and the other one (developer) is the one which is soon going to launch for Xiaomi’s smart phones as official updates, so it is a chance for you to download and install the upcoming custom ROM, but it comes with a price. The Developer stock ROM is less stable where as normal stock ROM is full functional stock ROM. So choose the one you want.
These were the only ROMs available for Xiaomi Mi 4c but we will update this article as soon as we get to know about more custom ROMs for this device. So stay tuned and stay updated.
