How to install Firmware / Resource with Notify & Fitness

Requirements:
Once you have all these things ready, it's time to connect your Mi Band 3 with Notify & Fitness. If you open Notify & Fitness for the first time, it will ask permission to use your device's location, this is needed to connect with your Mi Band so click on allow. When it finds your Mi Band 3, click on pair.


After your Mi Band 3 is paired with Notify & Fitness, it will ask for Notification Access. You can disable this, this is not needed to install the firmware / resource.


At the top of your screen, you will see a green bar which asks for Storage permission. You have to allow it to install a firmware or resource.


Once you did the setup, it's time to install the firmware / resource. On the top right of your screen, you will see a settings icon. Click it and go to Tools tab.


In the Tools tab, there's an option "Update Mi Band firmware". Click on it and select "Custom firmware"


You can then navigate to the place where you stored the firmware file / resource (usually it's in the downloads folder). Once you found it, click on it and Notify & Fitness will check if the firmware / resource is valid.


If the firmware is valid, you can press the "Start update" button and Notify & Fitness will install the firmware / resource. You will then see a progress bar. It's important you don't interrupt the process or disconnect your Mi Band otherwise you have a chance of bricking your device.


If everything went well, you will see a message that says "Update complete". Notify & Fitness will automatically start to complete the process (this will not happen if you installed a resource file, only with firmware).


If you have any questions, leave them below and we will help you :)
Good luck!

Thankyou very much. I saw a video of Rohit Raj Gupta in YouTube that he tells to unpair the mi band in mi fit app before updating the firmware/resource?Now I got that right!Thanks again @Mr_BananaPants 🤓🤪
I'm glad it worked :) . You can unpair your band from Mi Fit but it's not required. I never did it and it always worked fine for me.

You need to explain what you did and what it said, the above helps no one help you really..
I meant that:
After updating custom firmware, the app ( notify and fitness) says that the “update failed” it happens everytime
I want to fix it 👍
