Mi A2 January update

According to report, there are several users who are complaining about bootloop after Mi A2 January update. Google was controlling software development part of Android One phones. But now, OEMs have significant authority in hand. So, adding mild bloadware or delaying updates are most common. They have also said, lack of quality in Android One firmware is big thing currently. We have already seen that Xiaomi’s first Android One phone, Mi A1 was plugged with number of issues after launch and users are complaining about it. Now comes to Mi A2 January update, we are seeing this phone is also following the same path like Mi A1.  Actually, Mi A2 features updates techniques after updating the inactive slot it prompts for restarts, but the Smartphone gets stuck at Android One screen. Users are reporting about the matter. Let’s take have a look at Xiaomi’s own forum which users filling up such complains.

Hello Community,

i have a Problem after the installation of the newest android Update (OTA).

The A2 just Boot till the white AndroidOne Logo and it hangs there after a time it seems it shut down itself.

My Device:

-USB Debugging is disabled, its a new testing device.

-I cant boot in recovery mode (vol-UP+Power) just boots to the white androidOne Screen and there it hangs

– I can enter fastboot(VOL-Down+power) mode and the device is listed when i type fastboot devices in my terminal on pc

– when i fire up MiFlash tool it list my device after clicking refresh, if i want flash the latest FW (http://en.miui.com/download-353.html) i get the error:

error:”Flash bluetooth_a error”

– My bootloader is locked.


How can I flash a offical Android with a locked bootloader?

is it a good idea? or better send it back for a warranty solution (i dont want wait)

is there another way to solve my problem? i really dont know whats the problem is. i did not rooted the device or anything.

would be lovely if someone could help me. with an instruction what i can try.

Thank you very much and have a nice day


After instal january update and restart, on the phone see Android One logo and nothing is happening. After 5 minutes it switches off.

I’ll get to the bootloader, but I can not unlock the bootloader (neither unlock critical). Is anyone able to help?

We have researched on the matter deeply and finally we get that, Xiaomi is pushing two separate updates including V10.0.2.0.PDIMIFJ and V10.0.3.0.PDIMIFJ. Both the versions were tested as beta and finally, release for users marked as stable. But report says, this update has bug involving the inactive slot.  Afterward, most of the users are complaining that they did not unlock their bootloaders and cause bootloop on their phones. At the moment, the problem is not solved. We are researching on the matter deeply and definitely post an update, if it will come in future.
