Xiaomi, after weeks of waiting, finally rolled out the Mi A3 Android 10 update a few days ago. However, the update had to be stopped due to the fingerprint issue, which left users frustrated and disappointed.
Xiaomi quickly recognized the problem and noted that its developers were working to resolve the problem. Meanwhile, for those who have updated their Mi A3 to Android 10, the company has shared a workaround for the fingerprint problem.
It is possible that many who have been able to update their devices to Android 10 have tried to revert to the previous version in order to continue using their device without any problems. For these users and for those who wish to return to Android Pie for other reasons after the update of Mi A3 Android 10, Xiaomi has issued a warning.
Xiaomi asked these users not to revert to Android Pie after updating Mi A3 Android 10, as this could lead to errors and faults. The warning was not only intended for Mi A3 users, but also for Mi A2 users. In a note on Mi Community, the company said:
Please note that your device should not be tempted to revert to Android P (Android 9) once it has been updated to Android 10. As Android Q brings many irreversible updates to the system, reverting to versions previous can cause errors and faults, which can have a negative effect on the normal operation of your device
It should be noted that this is not the first time that the company has issued such a warning. It came out with the same warning last year for Mi A1, Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite users. At the time, the company warned users against reverting to Android O or earlier versions after updating to Android P (Android 9).
In addition, even Google has offered anti-rollback functionality. The recovery protection function acts as an additional layer of security and is useful when a device is stolen.
Usually, hackers or thieves try to downgrade to a previous version of the operating system to gain access to a device. This feature prevents the device from starting if someone tries to tamper with the software. Xiaomi’s warning may be based solely on this functionality.
