[ DON'T REPORT THESE TO US ]
* Dark/Night mode: Do NOT report ANY issues regarding this! This feature is officially under development and is not fully ready! We have no control over how it behaves and how it looks! Dark mode on Android Nougat and Oreo does NOT apply to the Settings app. Nothing to be done about it. If Dark mode switches on by itself, it is caused by apps with in-app Dark mode, like Google Messages.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Camera and/or sensors are not working!
A: You wiped "Persist" partition using an unofficial TWRP build. You shouldn't have done that.
You'll now have to flash the latest official fastboot ROM for your device to restore this partition.
Q: Weather app can't connect to the network!
A: Sometimes one of Xiaomi's weather data servers can have an extremely slow response time, so the connection times out. The server is randomly picked, so only a fraction of the users will encounter this issue. To solve this you can either wait until the server is stable again, or clear app data for Weather app and launch the app again in order to refresh the server list and use a different server for weather updates. If it still doesn't connect, it means that the same server was picked again, so you'll need to repeat the above until a responsive server is picked.

Hello.
8.9.20
Google Photos detect my phone as Pixel, and i can't change the size / resolution of the uploaded photos.
Clean flash and using stock miui camera that comes with the rom.
I'm not sure if this is really a issue that's need to be fixed, since my photos got uploaded at max resolution without decreasing my storage size.
We're not Google Photos tech support though. Can't see why it would think that you have a Pixel phone.

Sounds too vague and I can't reproduce it on MI 5.

I don't know if this is the place to report a bug or should I just start a new thread. If so let me know.
My problem with my Pocophone (MIUI 8.9.20) is silent mode: If I set silent mode, vibration automatically activates (as per settings). If I unable vibration and disable silent mode it disables it, but then if I try to set it again it does set the phone to silent but doesn't show on quicksettings (icon doesn't turn blue), and also the icon does not disable silent mode again.
The bug is easier to reproduce if you go to settings and untick the "vibrate on silent" setting. If you try to set the phone to silent mode it will do it but the quicksettings icon will not show it and you can't turn silent mode off.

Its a big issue, not a "vague" issue, some people need bluetooth turn on all day.. Please fix...

Search "wifi bluetooth usb3 interference" and you might find something.

This has been a known radio interference issue for some time, seems to have gone under the radar for most people.

It's vague because there's no detailed reproduction steps and configuration information for developer to work with. It's like telling a garage to fix your car without even telling them what exactly happened or even what car you have.

If a developer doesn't have enough information to reproduce what you are seeing, they can't fix it. It's not magic.

Also. Vague means unclear or uncertain. Not small.

Thank you. It seems a lot of people here struggle with English, and with using a dictionary.

[ 8.9.20 ] Mi Max 3. Clean install (all wipes).
In the settings for applications (WhatsApp, Telegram, Messaging) I disable "Floating messages", but they still appear. In the applications they are disabled.
And why are they still on the list of permissions?

8.9.20 on Mi Max 3. Clean flashed.

1. Android Auto doesn't seem to work consistently and is very slow to connect if at all. It takes about 5-10 minutes for it to connect if it works at all.
2. Any video chat application (Line, Skype, Google Duo) has the audio of me breaking up consistently (Video is very clear and stable), I can always hear the person on the other end just fine. Video quality looks good on both ends. Audio only calls work flawlessly however. (Using video chat apps or cell calls)

Side Note, Android Auto appeared to function correctly in 8.9.13, the Video Chat Microphone bug has been around since at least 8.8.9

Thanks for all the great work!

Try setting Importance to Urgent and then disabling "Floating notifications".
"And why are they still on the list of permissions?" - pay no attention to this list. We use our own notification settings. This list is a relic of MIUI 9 that should have been removed on Oreo/Pie ROMs.

Hi,
I have weird problem after MIUI 10 update with Mi4C. Phone keeps turning my wlan on, while I have hotspot enabled. This keeps disconnecting hotspot.

I have turned everything off from settings, rejected all programs from running, restricted access to pretty much everything possible. Nothing helps. Dometimes it takes 5mins next time 3h but for sure it hits again.

Any ideas?
Tried 8.9.6 and now 8.9.13.

As I said all that done, yet happening. Also location blockked, from location, changed to GPS only and from permissions to maps ets. everything off and still switching from hotspot to wlan.

I have been using this phone since miui 7 (I think) for like 1.5 years, updating to developer almost weekly, went from Android 7.0 back to 5.1 when thought it was heating too much, changed battery, been helping people around here with updates etc. and never seen this behaviour before.

Ohh yeah FYI I have 100/100 4G connection, unlimited data, dont need wifi for anything else than tethering for comps, dont have saved wlans to join or anything like that. PC getting cut from web 20 times a day cause phone turns wifi on is bit frustrating, specially if gaming.

Weird, my daughter's Redmi Note 4 running official global stable started doing this a few weeks ago, without any updates having been done.
I.e., wifi was always on and could not be turned off, hotspot could not be turned on

It was on an older version, don't remember which.

So I let it update to the latest official global stable MIUI 9 it could get via OTA, and the problem disappeared.

I have no explanation.
