Hi everyone,

[UPDATED Sunday 9:55pm]
The forum has undergone 8 essential upgrades today from XF 1.5.13 to 1.5.21 and now has full GDPR compliance as well. As such you are requested to (forced) re-accept the privacy policy to continue using the forum if you haven't already done so, please read and accept / decline as you see fit.

Tomorrow I will be updating the XF platform to the latest 2.0.x branch and upgrading PHP to a newer version to improve caching performance and reduce overheads.

First of all, thank you SO MUCH for the kind donations to help us pay for things to keep moving guys are the best! :)

As a result of the donations being met we have reached the goal and are now in a position to do some much needed software updates. As MIUI 10 is right around the corner for a public release its a good time to also get the forum upgraded and clean up old EOL device forums etc.

From this evening 12pm midnight (Sunday), Beijing time the forum will go through a series of read-only pauses so no posts or messages will be permitted during the maintenance window.

I aim to keep the disruptions to an absolute minimum but please bare in mind there might be some issues. Any questions let us know here...
