I've just got my Mi Band 8 CN and it has been updated to firmware version 1.2.138:



It has the same changelog as 1.1.238. Could it be a typo in the first post?

For global fw update try with this app MiFitness_3.20.2i_m0tral_v130u.apk
Search on Google, first result. Just download the app, uninstall official mi fitness app. Install the downloaded app and just follow the steps from de app. The update will appear by default.
After the update is finished, uninstall MiFitness_3.20.2i_m0tral_v130u.apk, install the official app, select your country , reset the band and pair it again. My band has my language, Romanian.

Thank you for this information. I can confirm that this method works perfectly!

My CN band got the global firmware, connected to the European server (Greece), and I had the option to select its display language!

My band it is NFC version, but now i don't see the Card tab in Mi fitness and it's showing either in the band.
If I change de region to CN, the band disconnect and doesn't connect back util i chage back the region.

I would like Mi Band 8 NFC Global - there is no way of using NFC in Europe for paying when I do the Firmware switch (from CN to Global), right? And do you think they will release 8 NFC Global before Christmas?
