hi, i have. a mi band 3 nfc,
Everything is working until the very end, at 100%, the mi band has a cross on it, and the application on my phone says "problems avec le transfert due mettadonnée du micrologiciel"(in french), with should be in English : "problems with the transfer ?microdata? of the firmware"
If you could help me that would be very cool, I have my mi band in Chinese for more than 3 month now, kind of annoying :(

We know exactly what the bracelet is "the band", so certainly someone will advise.

It is not necessary to install the Mi Fit App.
Maybe someone should update the Tutorial.
I have updated my MI Band 3 with Gadgetbridge right now. And I used my Fairphone 2 with LineageOS 16 and without google services and of course without this mi fit app.
And thank you for publishing the firmware. Keep up this good work.

Hello, I installed the Bulgarian firmware on Mi Band 3 by using your method. Everything works perfectly fine, until I have to connect the band to the mifit app after installing the new FW. It connects, starts updating and then just restores back the original English firmware. Any suggestions on how to fix that?

You must remove all bluetooth pairings from the system bluetooth phone settings. If this does not help, perform a factory reset in the Mi Band 3 menu.

This ain't working because after flashing with .fw file i am stuck at (Connect to app to update) screen on my mi band 3 so i cannot perform Factory reset. Moreover after Removing all paired devices on my android phone i still cannot discover band in Gadget Bridge app ( lastest v. installed 0.42.1). Although i can connect to Mi Fit App but not on Gadget Bridge application. Please help me. @rendal
You have to try it again, in the end you will succeed. A factory reset would solve this immediately, but it is not necessary. Remove pairing from apps. Remove all Bluetooth pairings from the Bluetooth phone settings Reset the phone. Start GadgetBridge and locate the bracelet. If GadgetBridge does not find the bracelet, repeat the procedure.

You have wrong versions between FW and RES, the versions of these files do not fit together, so the bracelet reports "connect to app to update".
