Thank you for creating this so I don't have to use the Amazfit app. I have an Amazfit GTR and a non-rooted Android phone. I followed the directions on freemyband.com but I don't know where to look for the file that holds the auth key. Please help.

I've read the thread. On freemyband, it says the file should be in "/sdcard/freemyband folder of your band ". Is there a folder on the band I should be able to read?
I don't have a "Mi Fit" folder or "Information.txt" file on my phone.
Using Amaze file explorer, it starts at /storage/emulated/0. I've searched that tree and I've gone up the tree, no files like those you mention. I tried showing hidden files, that didn't help either.

Have you installed Modified Mi Fit from this thread ? File will be here : "/storage/emulated/0/Mi Fit/Information.txt".

I don't have an Amazfit GTR to try, so I can't assure you it work using Mi Fit. Maybe require use a Modified Amazfit (there is on freemyband).

After installing Modified Mi Fit from this thread the /MiFit folder was not created nor was Information.txt.
I did install Modified Amazfit from freemyband. That did not create the AuthKey file either. If it did, I cannot find it on my phone using search in the Amaze file explorer.

Folder and file will be created during data syncrhonization when you open the app.

Thank you for your quick replies. I think I have it now. I think my problem may have been when installing the modified app I denied access to write files. After re-installing and allowing that I now have the auth key. Now running N&F without Amazfit app. Good work! Cheers!

Hi everyone. I'm here cause I just got myself a mi band 5. My question is : How do you uninstall the modified mi-fit apk after you have got the auth code? I can't find it anywhere in the installed app list in settings.

to remove the app, just long press the app's icon and then it should allow you to remove it. it is a normal app so you can remove it as usual.

I am also facing the same problems using modified Mi Fit 4.6.1. First "⤳ Button in Settings page to get your device Auth Key." is not really working. I didn't see any button in the Settings page nor did any directory is created inside /sdcard related to auth key.

If you don't see the button with Modified Mi Fit 4.6.1, it's because you don't go in good Settings page or don't installed Modified Mi Fit 4.6.1 - All in One ^^.

Settings page in "Profile" -> " Mi Smart Band X" -> "Settings".

Aww, thank MagicalUnicorn. I confused it's inside "Profile" -> "Settings". Thank you again.
