Xiaomi introduces anti-rollback on Xiaomi Mi A1, Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite

Many are still waiting for the OTA notification of the Android 9 Pie update on their Android One devices under Xiaomi, that is the Mi A1, Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. And although the innovations introduced by the new major releaase of the green robot are really interesting, many may not know what they are actually going through. Indeed some month ago, Xiaomi introduced an anti-rollback system, starting experimentally on the glorious Redmi Note 5.

The anti-rollback in poor words prevents a downgrade to the previous versions of MIUI, returning a brick of the phone, on which there are solutions but it is necessary to be of various geeks. Subsequently the locking system was also applied to other terminals such as Mi 6X, Mi Max 3 and Redmi 6 Pro. And it is today that the company announces that this method, decidedly out of line with the Android philosophy, has been extended to its own Android One terminals, such as Xiaomi Mi A1, Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. The update to Android 9 Pie is responsible for this.

So any user who updates the OS will still be able to downgrade to a previous version but could get errors and defects in the system, so the downgrade is highly discouraged. We know this is a big drawback for some, but it seems that Xiaomi is beginning to take these measures to maintain the stability and security of their phones. It is not known if it will be introduced in more models, but probably this will be the road that the Chinese OEM will take.

Now I am curious to know your opinion on this, if you agree or if you have already encountered this problem with other terminals (the ones mentioned above) and in case you have solved it. In any case, the globalization of Xiaomi inevitably brings these news with it, just because now the various lovers of the brand are not all aware users, as someone calls them.

Nerd, Geek, Netizen, terms that do not belong to me. Simply myself, technology lover and provocative as Xiaomi does with his products. High quality at fair prices, a real provocation for the other most famous brands.

Salut, comme sur REDMI NOTES 5 PRO the anti-rollback should be allowed to de dégrader growing autonomy, quality photo ... Sans possibilité de downgrader l'appareil avec a hardbrick à la clef.

In my opinion, this strategy by Xiaomi is appropriate. Let's assume that, with the actual output and availability of Android 9 pie the individual user has the option to return to Oreo or nougat, the same user may encounter various bugs and various stoppages due to the now obsolete and incompatible software at most with the updates of the various apps (including those of the system) what kind of advertising would you make the manufacturer Xiaomi ?? Which producer would ever want to see its products in the grip of bugs and clashes? So more marketing strategy... Read the rest »

A user who thinks and is technically able to make a downgrade, is also aware of what he does, any problems and how to solve them.
It remains that the phone is mine and I must be able to install what I want, within the bounds of legality of course.
In general, however, I consider the annoying anti-rollback but not a real problem
