    Bought mine from local reseller here last August pa after they launched it in China with installed orig china version but upgraded already since day 1. Arrested the China version issue with the new global version thru Mi subforums download and intructions. Work fine for me now using Miui7 version. Try it. As simple as cut paste then reboot.
