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

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

The anti-rollback in simple terms prevents a downgrade to previous versions of MIUI, returning a brick of the phone, on which there are solutions but must 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 today the company communicates that this method, definitely out of line with the philosophy of Android, has been extended to its Android One terminals, such as Xiaomi Mi A1, Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. It is precisely the update to Android 9 Pie responsible for this.

So any user who will update the OS will still be able to downgrade to a previous version but could get errors and faults in the system, so the downgrade is highly discouraged. We know this is a major drawback for some, but it seems that Xiaomi is starting to take these steps 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 undertake.

Now I'm 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 how you have solved. However, the globalization of Xiaomi inevitably brings with it these news, just because now the various lovers of the brand are not all aware users, as someone defines them.

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

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.

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.
