Important update
Because of the new security mechanism, "Keep User Data" option in MiFlash no longer works. If you flash your device, all of your data will be removed. Please back up your important data before flashing. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Hello, Mi Fans!
To make users safer when using Mi A1 device, we have introduced a new security mechanism. Therefore, the fastboot method of the update for Mi A1 will be adjusted accordingly.

To get a fastboot permission, users of Mi A1 need to activate Developer Options.

  • Go to Settings - System - About phone
  • Tap Build number multiple times until the developer notification toast shows up

After the above steps, you can activate the fastboot method flashing.

Apps like Mi Store, Mi Community, Mi Drop, and Mi File Manager may disappear after unlocking the device because of the new security mechanism, which you can get it back from Google Play Store or from backup.

  • Please backup your data before flashing the device.

We will keep you updated on latest information, please stay tuned to the community. Thanks for your support and co-operation.
