Hi guys,

After some research with the help of @Irfan902, I've succeeded in changing Mi Band 4 Theme.

The original link in Chinese: click here

OK let's begin.

First download all files in the link below


We are going to use AmazfitBipTools, which is open-source and modified by Chinese Dev.

  1. First, download and extract those files
  2. Drag template.bin into WatchFace.exe
  3. Modify any pictures you want, in this case the Background Picture is 0000.png
    I used Photoshop for this
  4. Make sure all parameters are the same as mine

  5. In Photoshop, choose Save for Web, then choose PNG-8 like the picture below
    View attachment 5873 View attachment 5874
  6. Save as 0000.png or replace the original file
  7. Drag the .json file into WatchFace.exe, a new file called template_packed.bin should appear in template folder.
  8. Open Mi Fit and download any theme. Here I use the pig with a yellow star
    View attachment 5875
  9. I am using Android so plug your phone in your PC, use File Explorer head to Android/data/com.xiaomi.hm.health/files/watch_skin_local
    Jump in to your earlier downloaded theme folder (you can find it by the thumbnail image inside)
  10. Copy that theme folder's name and rename the _packed.bin file with that (ex. 4lIYUjzg3Vwqt8tJU9sYLeOSqUSAreJNzUxJhxgM.bin)
  11. Replace the original file with the modified file
  12. Open Mi Fit and sync the watch face with the band
For advanced users: you can edit the .json files to change position of elements!

That's it. Feel free to ask any questions below. All credit goes to BandBBS.

I hope browser based tools like the one for Amazfit will be available soon, that'll be much easier

p/s: if anyone using iOS please try and comment below since I don't have any iOS devices
Can you pls make a youtube video tutorial.Thanks in advance.

It is not working for me, I can see the downloaded watchface in the folder with the others "officials" ones, but in MiFit->local watchfaces I cannot see the downloaded one...
Update your Mi fit App from play store

Update your Mi fit App from play store
It is al the last version, I don't have updates. And the band is also updated to the last version 1.0.5.39.

The only way to update a watchface is to replace the .bin file of a downloaded one (from inside the mifit app) and select it in mifit app after the replacement.
The one downloaded with your app are not displayed there (they also don't have an .xml file inside their folder, but even coping one from the folder of a dowloaded watchface doesn't make it appear)
