Just to clarify:
  1. Mi Band 4 non-NFC: Both Global and China versions have the same firmware.
  2. Mi Band 4 NFC: The firmware was the same as for non-NFC band until Mi Fit 4.0.5, when firmwares versions split up to 1.0.5.10 and 1.0.5.22 for non-NFC and NFC devices respectively. Since then they have separate resources too. However, there is a chance that firmwares for NFC and non-NFC can work interchangeably.
Regarding HW versions:
  • Mi Band 4 non-NFC:
    1. 0.25.19.5 (GL)
    2. 0.25.129.5 (CN)
    3. 0.25.131.5 (not known)
  • Mi Band 4 NFC:
    1. 0.25.131.21
xpaulos2,
I have added '.bin' and '.ft' to the list of allowed extensions .

xpaulos2,

SKU ID for non-NFC Chinese Mi Band is 'MGW4046CN'
V0.25.131.5 is NOT NFC. I just don't know whether it is Chinese or Global.
Thank you for your valuable information. (y)
Version V0.25.131.5 will be added when it is known what is.

I have a CN non-NFC version, currently in french thanks to your .apk mod, and the firmware is v1.0.5.22 ! so I guess there is no split after all.
It seems that some functions are activated or not depending on the hardware version, but with the same firmware ? ex : the CN no-nfc has the alipay QR code but the global doesn't ?

Theres is. Those firmwares differ a lot, even though have the same version.

Right. It depends on HW version.

@rendal, one more non-NFC HW revision is available now 0.25.17.5. Not sure about the fact whether it's CN/Global.

Another for you that I don't see in the firmware list. The one on the right in the attached image.
This is a global Mi Smart Band 4 model. Firmware version 1.0.2.12. I'll try check the hardware version once I get some free time to install this 'gadgetbridge' app.

Just received fw 1.0.5.39 in global MI4.

Got this two files in firmware folder:
-rw-rw---- 1 root everybody 929467 2019-07-04 08:03 811e694acce59080f874bf932f50115d
-rw-rw---- 1 root everybody 1253044 2019-07-04 08:03 94fb3e51ec3afe9895a760b435d8efb8

First (811...) seems to be resources and second (94f...) seems to be firmware, but I cannot guarantee. I just attached both files (remove .txt extension) just in case someone wants to check.
