  • Xiaomi suspends Android Oreo update for Mi A1 smartphone

The latest Android 8.1 Oreo update brought some lock screen issues for Google Pixel and Nexus users, but Google is looking into the matter.

Xiaomi, however, has not yet released any official statement addressing the issues. The rollout of 8.0 will resume “in next couple of weeks”, Mi India confirmed on social media. Additionally, the security patch has also been upgraded to the latest one. Now that the HTC 10 has also started receiving the update, the Taiwanese major has stayed true to its word. Apart from this, you would get a whole new user interface.

The update will reach Shield devices through an over the air update, and as mentioned before, we don't know exactly when it will roll out, as it surely isn't done.

The software version 3.16.617.2 as reported by AndroidPolice includes default features such as Instant Apps, new Quick Settings menu, Notification dots, Picture in Picture (PiP) mode, Smart Autofill and much more.

Sensex, Nifty open at fresh record highs
At 11:04 AM, the BSE Sensex was trading at 34,580, up 76 points, while the broader Nifty50 was ruling at 10,675, up 24 points. China reported trade data for December with exports moving up 10.9 percent and imports rising 4.5 percent.


Xiaomi posted this on the Mi Community, "We just dropped an Android Oreo update for Mi A1 a few days back". If your device meets the prerequisites, you simply need to root it and flash a custom recovery like TWRP to do the installation. As promised during the launch of the device, Xiaomi had rolled out the Android 8.0 Oreo update to Mi A1 on 31 December.

If you are impatient and don't want to wait for the push notification, you can go ahead and check for the update manually from your device. As a temporary fix, the company has asked users to uninstall the MyJio app, or disable the "Telephone" permission. Select this option and the system will start searching for the update.

While the Mi representative didn't state the reason, the update has probably been canceled due to bugs. The RUU file weighs around 2 GB, so make sure you are connecting with high-speed Internet.
