Some MIUI 12 Users in India Facing Bootloop Issues; Fix Coming next Week

Must read

Several Xiaomi smartphone users in India are reporting bootloop issues following the recent MIUI 12 update that is leaving their devices virtually unusable. The problem apparently affects Mi, Redmi, and Poco devices, but is restricted to users of the Airtel Thanks app.

According to social media and forum posts, devices affected by the issue are stuck in an indefinite bootloop following a message that reads: ‘Find Device closed unexpectedly’.

It’s not immediately clear whether it affects all Airtel Thanks users on Xiaomi smartphones, but it’s widespread enough for both Airtel and Xiaomi to have acknowledged it publicly. In a tweet over the weekend, Airtel Global CIO, Harmeen Mehta, announced that the company has already rolled out a workaround for the issue. As part of the temporary fix, users should open the Airtel Thanks app after a reboot, which should alleviate the issue, she said.

On its part, Xiaomi is also working on a permanent fix which is expected to roll out next week. In an official press release on the issue, the company said: “It has come to our notice that Mi & Redmi devices are showing an error, causing unwanted rebooting of the device … While we are working on fixing the issue with the App developer and rollout out a permanent update by early next week, we have put temporary containment measures in place, over the last 36 hours. This fix may need consumers to get their devices at a service center”.

Some social media posts also suggest that disabling ‘Ultra Battery Saver’ or ‘Find My Device’ might also be a temporary fix for the bootloop issue, but we cannot verify those claims independently. Of course, you can always uninstall the Airtel Thanks app as a foolproof temporary workaround. Either way, let’s hope that the upcoming patch from Xiaomi will get rid of the problem for good.
