Xiaomi is gradually introducing MIUI 13 based on Android 12 and it is obvious that the Mi Pilot version of the update already raises questions: according to the brand itself, the update “blocks” the device. This is true for smartphones Mi 11, Mi 11 Ultra, Mi 11 Lite 5G.
Probably, the problem applies to all other Mi devices updated to MIUI 13. And this is not surprising, because on the account of the brand, despite all the advantages of the proprietary shell, there are already problems with updating the OS, both with MIUI 12, and problems with the series of devices Mi A1, A2. And this, although indirect, but still a blow to the company’s reputation …
While the exact technical reason for the transformation of working smartphones into non-working “bricks” is unknown. According to one version, this happens after installing OTA through the Updater application. After that, the disabled gadget to correct the situation requires flashing through EDL (Emergency Download Mode). Firmware updates via Fastboot do not cause any problems.

The user’s attitude to the Mi Pilot beta program suggests that similar situations may arise and their customers should take it for granted. Testers are advised not to upgrade now and wait for the next update.
But users of the stable version of MIUI are not recommended to run experimental builds.
