Xiaomi had presented the very cheap smartwatch with a very appealing design a few weeks ago and immediately many of you had asked us if you would ever receive a software in English at least or even in Italian. The most passionate will have asked and obtained the answer from our Facebook page “surely, but we do not know whether in official or if there are translators who will make a special version in Italian"
Well, the news is about these last few minutes! The great friend Francko76 has just managed to create a firmware for theAmazfit Bip completely in italiano. In this way, although the interface in Chinese was already very intuitive due to the small icons, now the cheapest Amazfit in the series really becomes the best buy of the year!
We talked to him here at launch and we had tried it for you in our video review, but now we can finally give you the official guide to get it the Italian language on the Amazfit Bip! Of course we thank developers again dpeddi for firmware extraction, Francko76 for translation and graphics e Andreas for the realization of the tool ... and for the priceless work done!
Here is the first link to the page which encapsulates all the work done!
We will soon see that we will soon post it official guide to install this Italian firmware version on Amazfit Bip, then save the page to favorites because if you have already purchased it SmartWatch Xiaomi can't miss the chance to have it in Italian!
Thing? Have not you bought it yet ?! So now it's time to do it!
[GUIDE] Here is the official procedure for installing the firmware in Italian on Xiaomi Huami Amazfit Bip!
Before seeing how to install the Italian language on our Amazfit Bip, we once again thank the team that took care of the development of the tool, the firmware and the entire project, strictly in alphabetical order (of nickname!): dpeddi, Franck076 e Gadgetbridge Andreas Shimokawa.
Make sure you have enabled the installation from unknown origins by settings -> additional settings -> privacy -> unknown sources.
With the necessary clarifications, let's start with the uninstall Mi Fit from the phone. Once the official app is uninstalled, download the GadgetBridge apk on our phone and installiamolo.
Then start the app as soon as it is installed and proceed to thecoupling between the Amazfit Bip and GadgetBridge, until we find ourselves in the following condition (the Pebble obviously won't have it).
Now we will have to proceed with the flash of two firmware files specially modified by dpeddi.
First let's download them:
Download files and copy them to phone memory, we can proceed: open one of ours File Explorer e select one of the two files to import on the smartwatch. By clicking on the file, we will be able to select it Installation FW / App, as in the following picture.
After making this choice, GadgetBridge will reopen with this screen that we attach to you:
Guess what to do now? Exactly. We click on Install and the smartwatch will start updating.
We repeat the procedure for the other file downloaded and, once restarted, we will have the Amazfit Bip in Italian.
Surely you will ask for it and we will anticipate it: the weather information they will be in English or in Chinese. Everything is OK. To get the Italian language also on the weather you need to install the following MiFit app on your phone: Download MiFit 3.0.6 MOD Francko76.apk
The procedure is complete but the developers would like to point out that the weather app will be characterized by the impossibility of automatically recovering the position via GPS, due to a bug in the MiFit app. Nothing to worry about: you can choose your position by writing the name of your city in English.
Thanks again to the whole team of the important discovery, of the extraordinary work and, as always, of the availability demonstrated!
Good Amazfit Bip in Italian!
