How To Guide Xiaomi Smart Pen firmware update error

Search This thread
Good evening all,
From 2 days I'm trying to update my Smart Pen, but always I got an error.
Also I was looking on xiaomi.cn but method with turning on and off WiFi and Bluetooth location doesn't work.
Maybe somebody here met this problem too?



FIX:

If someone will have the same problem, just unpair all devices, especially headphones and gamepads also Smart Pen itself :D
After that reboot your device, and re-pair Smart Pen, open Settings -> Stylus & keyboard -> click "Check for updates" -> deattach stylus and start updating.

Thanks for the information.
I'm on the same ROM and could update to 00.00.0703 without any problems.
Sorry, I couldn't help.

Is there any step you followed you didn't write in this comment?
I had the same issue but the workaround you offer doesn't help me.

1. Disconnect all Bluetooth device, even Stylus and don't attach
2. Turn off WiFi
3. Reboot device
4. Re-attach stylus and wait for connection, make sure that only Stylus are connected
5. Turn on WiFi
6. Open Stylus & Keyboard settings > Update firmware > check for updates > Update
PS.: You can try disable Option from screenshot, I found it helped someone

I'm at the same situation.
I see the pen in my bt devices, but it´s named K81 CS(DFU) and i cant connect to it.



I had that too, you guys didn't remove the pen from the side before before pressing the install update did you? just reboot the tablet, follow the same steps as above. But for step 6. Open Stylus & Keyboard settings > Update firmware > check for updates >detach pen from tablet > press Update.

Thats how i got around it, hope it does for you guys as well

Ok, I have followed the previous solutions and various versions of such solutions.
I think I have a newer solution to try.
The pen has a bluetooth option for sharing contacts. This was not enabled - security, why will the pen use my contact details???
So, I removed/ unpaired my pen. Reconnected and this time added the contacts sharing. Possible that I could have simply ticked the contacts sharing???
This time when updating, the bar along the bottom of screen appeared and the pen updated.

сегодня пришел стилус иии ни в какую не хотел. снял защитный магнитный чехол и соединение с планшетом прошло на раз.

зы. упс за ник. забыл клавиатуру переключить

MOD EDIT: English Translation Below

Today the stylus of the IRI did not want to come. took off the protective magnetic cover and the connection with the tablet went through once.

shl. oops for nickname. forgot to switch the keyboard

Таже беда. Что решил с чехлом?

The same trouble. What did you decide with the case?

    You are the man!

    I too was stuck on 0601 and no amount of variations listed here worked. (although thank you to the OP as i am sure it helped many)

    VPN'd into US and it updated :)
