But for example, xiaomi devs team doesn't pay attention to our connection problem, that means they won't fix it :(
Have you learned JavaScript or some analogs programme, we will be able to fix that problem by ourselves
I have amazfit and their support team is actually helping you solve problems. They reply within a day or two.

Messing with the firmware is not an option. It is digitally signed and any modification will result in it being rejected by the band. There is nothing to do except waiting for a "compatible" Mi Fit or spend another 30$ on buying a new band!

i can rewrite the build info in FW to report as new while it will be an older version .. for example FW 1.0.3.22 will report as 1.0.4.9 .. but you will lose the possibility of OEM update. but via notify and GadgetBridge should go upload.

I do not like to repeat myself. Please read carefully this thread and try to understand what the problem is: The band is visible to the phone and the MiFit app, but it cannot pair to it, thus no firmware update can be performed.

Try as much as you like to mod the firmware. It will NOT be loaded to the band if it is not paired to the MiFit app. Even if you have the correct auth key, you cannot pair the band. Only a compatible MiFit version that can be paired to the "faulty" firmware can fix the problem.

By the way, the newest version 5.2.0 is also not able to pair with the band.

P.S. Please count how many times I have used the word "pair". This is the problem, not the connection!

But do you think that, without warranty, we are unable to repair ?

I have EXACTLY the same problem.

I also tried deactivating my device under the Mi Fit App, but when I tried to add the band again, it detects it but it just simply won't syncs with it.

I also tried to install the firmware via notify (with all the alternative methods), but I only get errors while trying to do it.

The odd thing is that Notify is detecting the band charge % (when it reaches 100%, I get a notification) and also Notify is detecting the steps, but the band is stuck at the "Connect to app to update again" screen.

I also tried syncing/updating the band with another phone, but I get the same results.

I cleared the bluetooth cache, uninstalled and reinstalled both Mi Fit and Notify apps, and even I factory restored my phone (Poco F3) and all those attempts end with the same results.

As you said, the band is visible to the phone and apps, but cannot be paired.

If you find a way to fix this band, please please let me know, I'm also giving up, but I just don't want to spend more mone on something that can be fixed.

Let's hope this gets sorted out!

I have the same issue, I wanted to try a new beta firmware and update via "Notify for Mi Band", I have successfully flashed FW, then Mi Band 6 restarted with the screen "Connect to app to update again" and it was impossible since then to flash resources.
I was playing with it with different phone, with Mi Fit app - nothing works. Notify see Mi Band but when I try to flash resources I have "Mi band not connected" message. Sadly I can't return for warranty, I bought the band from Aliexpress, sending Mi Band will be too expensive.
