Xiaomi Again started rolling out MIUI v126.96.36.199 update for Mi 4i for overheating issues. Firstly the update was released last week, but it was stopped due to some issues reported by users. Now Xiaomi says that it has fixed reported issues and the update is again rolled out. The size of the update is 804MB and it can be downloaded from here. Once downloaded go to Updater > Choose Update Package > Navigate to OTA Zip. Users can check for the update by just going to Settings > About Phone > System Updates.
“#Mi4i proud owners, check this out. Today we began an over-the-air system update of MIUI v188.8.131.52 for Mi 4i users. This is our first major update for the Mi 4i since its launch last month, incorporating feedback from many early Mi 4i users with a number of bug fixes and optimizations.
We’ve heard from some Mi 4i users that their devices can get warm under more strenuous conditions such as complex 3D gaming for extended periods of time. To address these concerns, we’ve optimized our thermal control algorithms to better regulate the temperature. The new thermal controls adjust frequency, voltage and the number of cores in use depending on the chipset temperature.
In all of our internal testing and pre-OTA release in the MIUI Forum and beta testers, we’ve observed that these changes reduce the device overall temperature without impacting performance. It’s pretty cool! (sorry for the pun, couldn’t help it lol)
Everyone should get the update this week. Please keep the feedback coming — you know we love hearing from you guys smile emoticon
PS: We started rolling out this OTA as V184.108.40.206 last week, but some users reported a minor issue related to the power button, so we created a fix over the weekend and resumed the roll out today.”, said Xiaomi’s Hugo Barra.
