Xiaomi has decided to make some adjustments to MIUI that can turn the most popular Redmi Note 5 device into a “brick”.
Now Redmi Note 5 users will not be able to roll back to an older version of the system if they already have installed MIUI 10 Public ROM 8.7.5. The company introduced the anti-roll mechanism, which blocks this procedure, turning the smartphone into a brick.
This was announced to the users of the device by the administrator of the MIUI forum:
If you use the version below MIUI 10 Public ROM 8.7.5, you should not worry , since the new mechanism is only active in version 8.7.5 and higher, according to MIUI.
On the one hand, this step is justified, because it is care for users, their security. However, the fact that by chance or ignorance a smartphone can fail is not encouraging.
