  1. Are you sure that this method is 100% working ? Because users on XDA are complaining about IMEI 0 /no network/MAC/ volte etc. issues after downgrading using this method.


  2. My friend, you saved my phone! Thanks a lot for taking the time to compile this tutorial! I hated Android Pie, I had cellular signal issues immediately after the update.

    The only exception is that I did not restore the ROM that you mentioned, but the latest Mi A1 Oreo ROM from the official Xiaomi site (this one : And it worked just fine. It is basically the latest Android 8.1 for Mi A1, with the November 2018 security updates.

    Greetings from Romania!

  3. One question, though. Is it possible to lock again the bootloader? Or will the phone not start anymore, if I lock it? It does not bother me too much if it stays unlocked, but I’d like to have it “clean”, like just out of the factory:) Thanks

  4. Hi again, Milind. I took the risk and locked the bootloader – no issues afterwards, except for resetting the phone to factory settings.
    One more thing I’d like to add for the skeptical : no IMEI issues after all the process.

    Thanks again!

  5. Hi Milind Sahu, why i can’t find the extract files of tissot? It’s just extract 1 file with size 3.2 gb and dont know what type file is that
    pls help, sory for my english!

  6. Worked, but I’m now unable to root my phone. Will successfully boot into TWRP using fastboot, I can install TWRP as well, but if I flash Magisk, the app does not show up in the app drawer at all.
    I tried wiping with TWRP, flash_all.bat with 8.1 Oreo October image first, but no success.
    Any suggestions?
    Thank you

  7. Hello friend, I did the whole process carefully, but I do not succeed. I noticed that at the time of restoring the backup, only the “Boot” and “EFS” options appear. The “Modem” option does not appear.


  9. HI,
    I am facing problem with my MIA1, my phones incoming call voice volume become extremely low but sounds like ringtones, notification sounds, audio/video sounds are perform perfectly. What should I do? my phones android version is 9, last updated info. security patch level: Nov 1, 2019.

    Please help me……

  10. Hey, can I use this method to downgrade from Android Pie (Dec 2019 Patch) to Android Oreo and use my EFS instead of yours?
    Also, can I use “clean all and lock” instead of “clean all” in the step, next to restoring Backup from TWRP?
    Waiting for your reply 🙂

  11. And what if I first flash stock rom with “clean all” and after booting it and then when I reach home screen. Then, again power off and go to fastboot and flash stock rom again with “clean all and lock”? It will be fine?
