Reports are that Xiaomi has fixed the bugs that affected last weekend's Android 10 upgrade for the Mi A3. However, the company also warns that rolling back to Android 9.0 Pie from Android 10 can cause system instabilities, which is not all that reassuring.
Alex Alderson,

Good news Mi A3 owners, Xiaomi may have already fixed the bugs that affected the device's initial Android 10 build. For those that are unaware, Xiaomi unexpectedly upgraded the Mi A3 last weekend, but the update contained so many issues that the company pulled it within 48 hours. Unsurprisingly, the update left some people reeling, especially as Xiaomi had initially promised that the Mi A3 would receive Android 10 months ago.

Now, there are reports that Xiaomi has released a new build, albeit only to handsets enrolled for beta updates. The build, called V11.0.7.1.QFQMIXM, may be limited to Indian handsets for the time being, too. According to one beta tester, Xiaomi has addressed the bugs from last weekend's build, with the fingerprint scanner and battery life returning to normal. There is no word yet on when V11.0.7.1.QFQMIXM will receive a public release, though.

Separately, Xiaomi has warned that rolling the Mi A3 back to Android 9.0 Pie from Android 10 can cause "errors and defects". Specifically, rolling back to Android 9.0 can result in system instabilities. Apparently, the Android 10 update irreversibly changes the system. The same applies to the Mi A2. Perhaps only upgrade your Mi A3 to Android 10 when Xiaomi issues a bug-free build, then?
