Xiaomi continues to update several of its smartphones with MIUI 12, a gradual and phased process that eventually brought the problematic firmware with build number V18.104.22.168.QGGEUXM to the Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Although updates, as a rule, bring new functions and security improvements to the smartphones they are intended for, unexpected errors sometimes arise. Unfortunately, this is one of those instances, with the update condemning the Xiaomi smartphone.
Do not update Redmi Note 8 Pro to MIUI 12
Above we can see the effects of the compilation V22.214.171.124.QGGEUXM for the Redmi Note 8 Pro in Europe. Note that this is the compilation in circulation also in Portugal, which can cause serious failures in the normal operation of the product.
It is worth noting that not all units of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro are equally affected. That is, it may be that the MIUI 12 update is correctly installed and works perfectly, but there is a very real danger that this may not be the case.
The update to MIUI 12 was slow to arrive on this 2019 mobile device, but now that it has arrived, it proves to be a headache for some users. Although it does not affect all units, the simple fact that it affects some is already serious enough.
Reports like this start to become popular, with more videos coming to YouTube and Twitter, among other social networks, but with some users pointing out that a factory reset will solve the problems, but not always.
It is better to wait until Xiaomi corrects the lapse
The mid-range smartphone remains a solid bet with MediaTek’s Helio G90T processor. So far, however, we do not know what caused this catastrophic failure in the units where the bootloop occurs.
Note that in these instances the smartphone is stuck in the initial startup cycle, preventing the user from correctly accessing it. In a last note, we mention that the problems are being pointed out since December 27th.
So far Xiaomi has not commented on the problem. We are now waiting for a corrective update so that Redmi Note 8 Pro users can finally enjoy MIUI 12.
Until then, don’t update this mobile device.
