I amAs a rule, software updates for smartphones are a cause for celebration. Usually, default patches close security holes, perfectly fix technical issues and add new functions to a mobile phone. So it is no wonder that users have one Xiaomi Mi A3 enthusiastically pushed for the manufacturer’s Android 11 update released at the end of December 2020. But instead of enthusiasm, there has been discontent since then. Online reports are accumulating that the patch has completely disabled the smartphone. Therefore affected devices cannot be powered on or charged. Even the emergency recovery mode is not accessible. In short: the cell phone is completely gone. Xiaomi has already officially commented on the issue ?? And it doesn’t make the situation better.
