    Post Question Confused!!!

    Starting from halfway down! If your phone is new, the bootloader is locked. How to safely flash? Read the threads on unlocking the bootloader. There is very little risk provided you have learned how to do it (and not much risk even if you don't). Warranty. I don't know. But you can always...

    Post Question TWRP 3.5.1 not recognising USB-OTG

    I had a similar problem. My solution was to connect the phone to a PC and transfer the ROM zip file to the internal storage using adb push and then to flash it using TWRP.

    Post Question Chinese rom .. can i use it in Saudi Arabia ?

    You should be able to use it there provided that it has the correct bands you need. The Chinese ROM does not have Arabic language so you will be limited to using it in English. Once you have installed google play store (if it is not already installed) you can use all of your apps as usual...

    Post Question About to buy a new phone and have an honest question

    This is an incredibly hard question to answer. Nobody can answer you objectively. I have always had 2 phones - an android and an iPhone. I've only recently got the 11Ultra, coming from a Note 20. I also have a 12 Pro Max. The mi is incredibly smooth - far more so than the iPhone. But I hated...

    Post Question Restore from Google Backup

    Thanks - I may try that next time, although it's quite pricey at $40 per year or a bit more for an outright purchase

    Post Question Why its so hard to get the Global Version?

    Absolutely agree. Also, I tried to get one on Mi UK at release time on release date. I missed out only because I didn't yet have an account set up! It could be supply shortages - or it could be deliberate of course, but that would be an odd decision given the demand for the handset!

    Post Question Restore from Google Backup

    Thanks very much - that is the solution. I had tried to use Mi Mover before using Google backup/restore but it kept failing.

    Apologies if this has been answered already - I've searched and not found an answer. I've just received my China version; having installed Google Play, is there any way to force a restore of a Google backup of my previous phone - it would be so much easier if it could (re)install my apps and...

    Post Question Where to buy the Mi 11 Ultra?

    I’m going with the Chinese version. The UK price is madness compared to the price of the Chinese version. There appear to be issues with the China version on Vodafone UK but otherwise all seems well. If necessary, I’ll flash one of the other ROMs but from what I’ve read there’s no significant...

    Post Question Where to buy the Mi 11 Ultra?

    I have always found Wonda to be very accurate - they publish all the bands and also publish answers to queries. As to timing, they dispatched mine straight away (same day). I paid for the smooth delivery, which they have no refunded. It is arriving monday (hopefully!) so about 10 days. Any...

    Post Question Where to buy the Mi 11 Ultra?

    It is so frustrating. I of course understand that there is a pandemic on - but that has been going for a little while now and so many companies have been able to adjust. Not even to be able to give a revised delivery date is very annoying

    Post Question Where to buy the Mi 11 Ultra?

    Just in case anyone else is thinking of ordering from Wonda. My CN 12/256 has now been at Paris airport since Tuesday (the day it was supposed to be delivered to London). No update for delivery at the moment and no update for when it might leave France! Wonda have refunded the 'Smooth Delivery'...

    Post Solved!!! Android Auto replacement - 8" Dex or HDMI touchscreen in the Uk

    No photos at the moment but I can certainly take some. It's not 'installed' - it's held in place by magnets on vent mounts so it can be removed very quickly. There's not much to see - it just looks like a 10inch tablet floating over the centre air vents, with one cable coming out of it! I use a...

    Agreed re the price drop but disagree on all else!!! The 120hz screen is so much more fluid it makes a huge difference. But that is not important to some. Much better on thr SD Note U than even on the Exynos S20 U (my last device). And the camera is a fair bit better. Sent from my SM-N9860...
