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 you need to be of the various geeks. Subsequently, the blocking 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 communicates that this method, definitely 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 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 about it, if you agree or if you have already encountered this problem with other terminals (the ones mentioned above) and if so how you solved it. In any case, the globalization of Xiaomi inevitably brings with it this news too, precisely because now the various lovers of the brand are not all aware users, as someone defines them.

Salut, comme sur REDMI NOTE 5 PRO the anti-rollback goes to allow de grader increasing autonomy, the photo quality… Without possibility of downgrading the appareil avec un hardbrick à la clef.

In my opinion, this strategy by Xiaomi is appropriate. Let's assume that, with the release and actual availability of Android 9 pie, the individual user has the right to choose to return to Oreo or nougat, the same user may encounter various bugs and various jamming due to the now obsolete and incompatible software. at most with the updates of the various apps (including the system ones) what kind of advertising would the manufacturer Xiaomi do? Which manufacturer would ever want to see their products prone to bugs and stumbling blocks? 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 find anti-rollback annoying but not a real problem
