  17. Hi, I am using iVMS 4500 app from Hikvision. I am not able to use their cloud based remote viewing off cctv cameras after upgrading to MIUI GLobal 9.1 Stable. My phone is Mi5. Plz help.

  18. My phone is MI MAX. After doing the upgrade, I am getting a strange issue of contacts got merged. I mean number of one contact has been merged to another contact and now my phone is confused. When I call one person, it goes to another person. When I open that contact, then I see both the numbers of person1 and person2. Please help to resolve this issue, as I have delete the contacts and create it again, but I cant do it for all, as I have thousands of contact list.

  19. my phone i already upgrade to MIUI9 a few past month ago. Then on friday last week, i come back from work then want to check my phone, my phone is off and didnt turn on. what i supposed to do?

  20. Hi!
    I experience different issues with my new Max 2 (MIUI 9.0 global)
    1. Can’t create dual apps (WhatsApp, Facebook…).
    2. Can’t unlock via SmartLock, nor find available devices on “unlock via Bluetooth device”.
    3. Different small issues in personalising contacts giving them a given notification time on WhatsApp

  21. I have Redmi 4X Global, the battery life was 4-6 days with MIUI 8, but recently MIUI 9 has installed itself and now 4 days are not achievable, top is 3 days or often even less . I can literally see the percents of energy going down, while browsing web, etc. At this moment I have Android 7.1.2 and MIUI Global My colleague feels the same way, even though she does not pay so much attention to it and I have seen similar responses on the web. Looking for a fix for this. It is quite unfortunate.

  22. Just updated my Xaiomi Redmi 4X via OTA update from Xaiomi to Nougat a few days ago. Now I can’t send or receive mms messages. Everything else seems to work fine. I have tried every possible solution i found on the internet including reboot, switch airplane mode off & on, clear cache, reset apn, change settings, etc and nothing seems to help. MMS worked just fine with Marshmallow. Any ideas?? This seems to be the only issue I have.

  23. Hi,

    My Redmi Note 4 got automatically updated to MIUI 9 global 9.0 stable 9.05.0- NCFMIEI in october 2017 . After the update one fine day my complete contact details , dialled numbers and messages got vanished. Also the Phone gets restarts on its own . I tried to recover the contact details from saved VCF file but now my phone is getting restarted automatically and completely erasing the contact,dialled number messages.

  24. After i update my mi5 to miui 9 i got some problem. The first one is the line notification, when the chat comes there won’t the sound and vibrate notification. The second one is the battery, the battery become so fast to drain. The third one is the dnd and silent mode, there’s some error in it.

  25. With the mi mix 2 and MIUI 9, the music apps (google play music, mui music) cannot play music at the same volume, whatever notifications or other locking gestures.

    it is totally a deep pain in the ass. With MIUI 8 the music volume is still the same, even if there is notifications, or with MIUI 9 you simply cannot listen to your music… it is awfull.
