How to modify Resources files ?
(At your own risk... We aren't responsible for bricked devices and we won't help in case of other problems)
Required :
AmazfitBipTool
(By Valeronm)

Download and unzip.
Put original Resources file in "AmazfitBipTools-1.0.3.0" folder.
Drag and drop Resources file on "WatchFace.exe" (Terminal will open and close).
A new folder will be created in "AmazfitBipTools-1.0.3.0" folder, it's the decompiled Resources.
In the decompiled Resources folder, edit all pictures you want.

Some information regarding IDs can be found here:
Digit Images IDs in Resources | Xiaomi Mi Band 3 | GeekDoing

Do NOT delete any picture !
Do NOT change a size of pictures !


When you have finished, drag and drop the decompiled Resources folder on "WatchFace.exe" (Terminal Window will open and close).
Two new files will appear, one is a log file and the second is your Custom Resources.

Activate visibility option in Mi Fit (Work without activate this option for me).
Open Notify and Fitness for Mi Band.
Accept localisation authorization (Pass "import save", "authorize access at notifications").
Expand the menu with icon at left top, and go in "Settings".
Scroll down in "Basics" tab, and at "Mi Band firmware version" tap on "Update".
Accept the required authorization.
Choose "Custom firmware" and choose your firmware file.
Tap on "Start update".
After update, Mi Fit will connect automatically at your Mi Band 3.
Uninstall Notify and Fitness for Mi Band.

I use paint.net it's free and easy to use
I try use this app, but always when I modify picture It weighs more than at the beginning

In the first post is the information "Do not change a size of pictures" Size or weights?
Is there a chance that a resource error will cause a brick band3?

Hi, with "size" he means the resolution. So if an image is 80x28 pixels, you can't change it. You can edit the images as much as you want.
