Problems with the launcher in the latest MIUI update: here's how to solve

As usual, mini updates to the system continue to arrive via OTA. We don't talk about big and heavy upgrades like what awaits us with the MIUI 12, but small upgrades of system applications. Most of the time these updates are harmless and very often they are only resolutions of small bugs, but sometimes it happens that the nice messes. In the last few hours, the MIUI system launcher update is causing many problems for users. Let's see in detail what is going on.

System launcher crash on MIUI for different Redmi and Xiaomi devices: here's how to solve it

The build number of the update dating back to today is 4.17.0.1870-05091136 and brings some small news in addition to the usual optimizations. So far no problem except that on different devices this update leads to systematic crash of the launcher itself. Therefore we strongly advise you not to proceed with the update and to wait for the release of a fix. At the moment the development team didn't comment about the problem but it's a matter of hours before I do

crash launcher system miui xiaomi and redmi

For now, the Xiaomi and Redmi devices updated to MIUI 11 that have encountered problems are:

  • Redmi 5 Plus;
  • Xiaomi Mi 10;
  • Xiaomi Mi 9T;
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 3;
  • Xiaomi Mi Note 10;
  • Redmi Notes 4;
  • Redmi Notes 4X.

Those who are not experiencing MIUI launcher crashes are not exactly "out of danger": there are slowdowns in the animations when applications open and close. If you are among those who have updated the device unaware, do not panic: there is an easy way to solve. Just do as follows:

  • swipe the curtain, or the notification bar, down and click on the gear at the top right (alternatively just go to "Settings" if possible); [for those who know less, you have to go down with your finger from the highest part of the screen up to half o poco more of the same; however, we put a mini video guide at the end]
  • now go to "App”You will find poco under "Password and security";
  • now tap on "Manage apps"And search for"System launcher";
  • once found click on and down select "Uninstall updates".

With this simple trick, you will no longer find yourself crashing with the MIUI launcher. While waiting for an update to fix the problem, don't update it.

Some of you surely have automatic updates with WiFi on, which is an option that makes your smartphone update system apps automatically. To avoid problems like the one just described, we advise you to disable them, at least for the moment. Then go to "Settings"> "System app updates"> click on the gear at the top> "Automatic updates"> "Do not update".

SECURITY UPDATE TRAINING

Many users have difficulty accessing application management. Another way to access it is through multitasking:

  • regardless if you have physical keys, gestures or digital keys, access multitasking (usually with digital keys it is the key to the right or left);
  • here should give you a rod in the upper right with the writing “Manage apps”That you see highlighted in the image below;

  • by tapping on "Manage apps"You get directly to the point where you have to search"System launcher”And to uninstall updates.

UPDATE 2

It seems that in record time it was fix released for the unfortunate problem that plagued the launcher. Below the photo. Build number 4.17.1.1491-05142205.

Hi! I have a Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, bought yesterday and have encountered this problem. I followed the procedure but the “Uninstall updates” icon does not appear. I tried to report the problem to Xiaomi but nothing. How can I do?

Same identical thing, really good guide and really timely.
Only really negative side but for which nothing can be done is that the icons will all be put in bulk and the folders deleted

Good morning, tonight the redmi 5 suddenly crashed. I get a pop up written like this "The Security app continues to send a report like this" The Security app continues to send a bug report to Mi etc etc "and at the bottom two options - cancel or report - Clicking cancel to half a second I can access other functions then the pop up reappears. In fact I'm blocked and I can't even follow your suggestions. Thanks for your help

The window that says: The Security app keeps crashing. It appeared at two-second intervals, preventing me from doing everything. Really frustrating. Then when I erased the data and forced the app to close it would stop for like five minutes then start again

I tried to unlock my mother's Redmi 5A, once from the settings I go to the home screen & recent apps and then to the default Laucher and I go to the system Laucher even clicking on it does not come out any option so the phone remains locked ... update released today which should fix the problem !!!

On SYSTEM & DEVICE there are only lock screen, notifications, home screen, second space, battery, memory, google, additional settings ... I add my curses to the Amazon courier who was supposed to deliver the new Xiaomi Redmi note 8 but it was lost. After receiving the refund I bought it back and it should arrive at the end of the month ... In the meantime I would like to be able to make this Redmi5A work again before passing it to a better life ...

Damn, I've been a whole day trying to fix this. From 10 o'clock yesterday morning I landed here at midnight yesterday. I have a redmi 5 plus that I have chosen for your own reasons. Now everything is OK, or almost: phone book disappeared and consequently all whatsapp contacts, SMS disappeared. Now I have disabled automatic updates. Hopefully it won't happen again because it's a nightmare. Thanks so much for this article.
