I just updated to January 2019 update, everything was fine until i pressed 'Restart now' after it finished updating. Now it froze at Androidone screen. I hold the power button, it vibrates and looks like it's starting up but instead it freezes again at Androidone screen. If I unplug my phone it seemingly shuts down after a while, but again if I try anything it's the same thing again and I remain stuck at the Androidone screen. Please help. Thanks, Vladan

I have the same issue. I am able to use fastboot commands from my computer, but cannot (or do not know how to) sideload update .tgz file I downloaded from en.miui.com.
Also, I am unable to use adb commands and boot into recovery.

I can press and hold vol- + power to boot into fast boot.
Then press and hold vol+ + power to get it to boot back to the old partition for normal use.

There might be another update later on which would probably fix the issue?

I tried to update again and now I get the same issue ouch...

Mine went well but I did something wrong in Magisk and it stop booting.
In fastboot mode I've changed it from A to B and it loaded PIE with january update. So, try to change from A to B ou B to A and see if that fixes the problem.

Confirmed, unfortunately
Dammit, you guys!..:) UNFORTUNATELY, this is confirmed!!

Brand new Mi A2 (Global Version), from the shop today and went through System updates - through, to Google January 2019 Security Update and the device will not boot; same problem as with everybody else here. Argh.

Yup, had just managed to start it: system was up. Went for a Factory Reset and now I'm back in the loop. Stuck again, just upon rebooting. :( This is going the be a serious issue.

Try to start it with holding both volume buttons down and power - then release after logo and, also -perhaps- volume down.

^^ At least, that's what I think I'd done, heh. Sorry, not 100% sure, all happened in -serious- panic! xF

EDIT: Ah, well, thank God (LOL). It looks like there isn't anything wrong with Google's "Security patch level: January 5, 2019" (Android 9)!

However, because this happened through normal operation - it seems that a LOT of people *are* going to have this problem...

How many know that you should Factory (Data) Reset after a (regular, OTA) update; and how many will be able to boot their device, out of the loop. Geez!

P.S. Btw., you owe me *beers! ;$

EDIT: Zomg., this thread is a duplicate, already @
