You should think that Xiaomi has learned its lesson when it comes to Android updates, as the manufacturer has long struggled with bug releases such as brick or otherwise affects phones left and right. But that does not seem to be the case. During the holidays, the company tried to roll out Android 1
Gadgets 360 reports that the new update is released as version 22.214.171.124 in India. It arrived shortly after the original Android 11 rollout was completely stopped, and it looks like it was a rather hasty launch. Although there are no longer reports of completely fake phones, many Mi A3 owners have gone to social media to complain about other issues, such as slow charging, no Wi-Fi calls, no chat bubbles, random reboots and touch screen issues in short. , it may be better to stick with Android 10 for now if you have not already updated.
The original problem with walled phones seemed to affect many people who tried to update the Mi A3 to Android 11. It seems that many phones remain completely walled, which means they can not be turned on properly anymore and get stuck on startup screen. Some owners even report that they do not get to the startup screen at all and do not have access to quick start, which usually helps in resetting borked phones.
Xiaomi advises those affected by the masonry hardware to visit service centers, which is not really a sensible solution in the midst of a pandemic – not to mention people who do not have a Xiaomi store nearby at all. Files stored on phones can (partially) be lost, although we do not know if service centers can retrieve some or all of it.
A spokesman for Xiaomi India made the following statement:
We are aware of the issue on some Mi A3 devices following a recent Android 11 update. We have since stopped the launch.
We ask users who experience this problem to visit one of the 2000 plus service centers across the country closer to you where a solution will be provided free of charge (within or outside the warranty).
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. As a brand that is committed to offering the best possible user experience, we will continuously improve our products and services.
This is not the first time Xiaomi has made Mi A3 owners question the purchase – the Android 10 update was already repeatedly pushed and pulled until the company finally managed to release the right stable software. Let’s hope Xiaomi can solve the remaining issues without further delay.
The rollout was resumed, new problems
The article has been updated to reflect that Xiaomi has started rolling out a new version of the firmware that no longer draws phones, but introduces some other issues.
