Hi guys and girls,

Not into all this programming stuff etc. I got the official update last night on my Xiaomi 11LITE 5G.
Now my onscreen gestures are not working anymore.
Strange, because if you do the training of the gestures, it is working, but once out of there nothing
is working.
So I have to start using the buttons (which is annoying to me)

Anyone else has this problem?

I can help you if you have root. It stopped working on mine too so I use FNG. To get rid of the annoying 3 button navigation use these commands:

1. Download Termux
2. Su
3. "props qemu.hw.mainkeys 1"
4. Reboot

And you've got navigation gestures. Add it to the navigation so you can turn navigations on and off easily

I had also this problem, but only when I use Nova as Launcher.
Gestures works with default launcher. That's annoying, i'm used to nova and his usefull features.

Gestures being blocked on third party launchers is an Android 11 limitation.
Nova Launcher have issued a beta version released for Android 11 only, they figured out how to get Gestures working again.
