Carl Brookes, 32, will appear before magistrates in the city on Tuesday accused of two offences of prison mutiny and a charge of taking a photograph inside HMP Birmingham.
All three offences are alleged to have been committed on December 16, when the privately-run jail was hit by disturbances which led to the transfer of hundreds of inmates to other prisons.
The mutiny charges against Brookes, who is now being held at HMP Hewell in Worcestershire, allege that he engaged in conduct "intended to further a common purpose of overthrowing lawful authority" at Winson Green.
Two other men charged with prison mutiny were remanded in custody by magistrates earlier this month and are due to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on February 3.
