Android 10 Update turns Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite into a «brick»
After a not-so-successful attempt to upgrade Xiaomi Mi A3 to Android 10, the company released a similar update for Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. But the problem repeated itself - smartphones do not turn on after the update.

What is known

Shortly after the start of distribution of the update, messages began to appear on the network about the impossibility of including the updated Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite, Android Police reports.

The victims claimed that the update simply turned their smartphone into a "brick", which usually happens when installing unofficial firmware. Many smartphones switched to bootloop (cyclic reboot) after using the new firmware, and some phones did not turn on after the update. Of course, there are those who updated without problems, but still they are not in the majority.

However, there were those who had the update without problems - according to one version, the success of the operation depends on the memory configuration of the smartphone. Presumably, smartphones with a specific memory configuration had problems. Recall that there are two of them for Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite: 3/32 and 4/64 GB GB.

How to solve the problem

As an interim solution, users of the XDA-Developers forum have proposed an unofficial method for software repair of frozen devices. However, owners of Mi A2 Lite are advised not to experiment with their device and wait for the release of a fixed version of the update.

What Xiaomi says about it

Representatives of Xiaomi have not yet commented on the situation with the conversion of gadgets to "bricks".
