[Announcement] MI Max 3 has received the anti-rollback protection mechanism (ARB)

Hi to all!

In order to maintain system stability and data protection, the MI Max 3 has received the anti-rollback protection mechanism (ARB). Starting with the Weekly Firmware MIUI version 8.11.1 and above, as well as Stable Firmware V9.6.8.0 and above, users will not be able to roll back to the lower versions of the software accordingly.

ARB (Anti-Rollback System), a security system introduced by Google to protect Android from lowering the version to the older one. It was added since the release of Android 8, but the device maker himself could decide whether to turn it on or off. With the release of the MIUI versions listed above, it was activated.

To check if ARB is on your smartphone, it's enough to launch the smartphone into FASTBOOT mode (turn off the device, hold down the volume up button, and the power button)

All you need to know!

Download minimal adb fastboot.zip (8.89 MB, Downloads: 51) and run it, reboor phone into FASTBOOT mode and connect phone, you will see a command window in which to enter the following commands:

  1. fastboot devices
Copy the Code

if you receive a reply
  1. device: xxxxxxx
Copy the Code

continue to enter the command
  1. fastboot getvar anti
Copy the Code

You will receive the following response:
  1. anti: 3 or 4
Copy the Code

If 3 = NO ARB, a rollback to the previous version is possible.
If 4 = ARB is present, the rollback is possible only to the version indicated below.

EXAMPLE: Rollback from the Global Weekly Firmware MIUI 10 9.3.14 is only possible until version 8.11.8. A similar situation with Stable versions - if MIUI 10 V10.2.1.0 is installed, the rollback is only possible until version 9.6.12.0

If you upgrade your phone to beta 8.11.1 and above, or stable version V9.6.8.0 or higher, do not try to downgrade the version and install the old firmware - it will cause the device to be completely disabled, you need to contact the service center for its restoration ( You need a special account for recovery in EDL mode (TEST-POINT)!

If you have beta:
1. 8.11.1 and above - you can not roll back to the previous version.
2. 8.11.1 - not transitive, from it it is impossible to make a rollback of software on earlier versions, rollback is possible only to it or later versions.
3. Versions up to 8.11.1 can still be reduced without harming the device.

If you have a stable version:
1. V9.6.8.0 and later versions can not be downgraded to earlier versions.
2. Versions V9.6.8.0 - non-transitive, it is impossible to make rollback software on earlier versions, rollback is possible only to it or later versions.
3. Versions to V9.6.8.0 can still be lowered earlier.

Security measures:
If you are upgraded to 8.11.8 or V9.6.12.0 and tried to downgrade the software, your phone is turned off and the PC sees it as: HS-USB-QDLOAD 9008 (com x) contact online customer support online or to an authorized service the center

ARB is not what users wanted. Bad new versions can not be circumvented now.
