Xiaomi extends Android 10 release for the Mi 9T and Redmi K20 after pulling initial build
Xiaomi has been rolling out Android 10 builds of MIUI 11 to the Mi 9T and Redmi K20 in stages, with Chinese handsets first to receive the latest version of Google's OS. While the OS upgrade arrived as V18.104.22.168.QFJCNXM for the China branch of MIUI 11, Xiaomi brought EU and Global handsets onto Android 10 with V22.214.171.124. It seems that there were a bunch of issues with the EU and Global update, not least several reports of some devices experiencing unusually high battery drain.
Correspondingly, Xiaomi appeared to pull V126.96.36.199, with people online claiming that the update was no longer available. Now, it seems that Android 10 is available to download again, although still as V188.8.131.52 of MIUI 11. We are unsure at this stage whether handsets running the first version of V184.108.40.206 will receive this new update, though. If you have downloaded the original build and are experiencing high battery drain on EU or Global builds, then you may need to downgrade to an earlier version of MIUI 11 before upgrading again to V220.127.116.11.
If you have only just received a notification to update to V18.104.22.168, then the changelog should be as follows:
- Stable MIUI based on Android 10
- Updated Android Security Patch to January 2020. Increased system security.
Status bar, Notification shade
- Fix: Couldn’t open notification settings in the Notification shade in Second space
- New: Music card
- EU privacy adjustments
