How to Install New Mi Band Themes from outside the store

Here is the guide on how to make your Mi Band look cooler than it already is!

Xiaomi Mi Band themes allow you to add your style to your smart bracelets that have become a part of your style. Mi Band, which people use quite a lot in their lives, offers third-party (unofficial) Mi Band themes apart from its original themes. Unofficial themes developed by users are shared in various forums. Although these shares attract people’s attention, there is not much information about how Mi Band themes are installed.

However, most theme developers do not include a “how to install a theme” guide next to their themes. Although it is a little troublesome to install Mi Band themes, it does not take much of your time and you can install your theme and continue using it immediately. Although multiple methods are used to install themes on Mi Band, we will consider the simplest method.
