Scritto da Staff il 26 Aprile 2023
If you own a Xiaomi Yi camera, you might want to consider updating the firmware for optimal performance. Firmware is the software that runs on your camera’s hardware and controls its functions. Updating it can improve stability, fix bugs, and add new features. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to update your Xiaomi Yi firmware camera.
Step 1: Download the firmware update file
The first step is to download the firmware(link) update file from the official Xiaomi website. Make sure to download the correct version for your camera model. The file will be in a ZIP format, so extract it to your computer.
Step 2: Format your SD card
Next, format your SD card to ensure there are no unwanted files or data on it. Insert the SD card into your computer and format it using the FAT32 file system.
Step 3: Transfer firmware to SD card
Once you’ve formatted your SD card, transfer the extracted firmware files to it. Make sure to copy all the files, not just the ZIP folder. When copying, make sure to place the files directly into the root directory of the SD card, not inside any folders.
Step 4: Insert SD card into your camera
With the firmware files on your SD card, insert it back into your camera. Turn on your camera and wait for it to recognize the firmware update files. The camera will start the updating process automatically.
Step 5: Wait for the update to complete
During the update process, your camera’s LED light will blink. This indicates that the update is in progress. Do not turn off your camera or remove the SD card before the update completes. The process usually takes a few minutes, so be patient.
Step 6: Check the firmware version
Once the update is complete, turn off your camera and remove the SD card. Turn on your camera again and check the firmware version in the settings menu. Make sure the version number matches the one you downloaded from the Xiaomi website.
Updating your Xiaomi Yi firmware camera is an easy process that can significantly improve its performance. Follow these steps carefully to ensure a successful update. Remember to always download the firmware from the official Xiaomi website and to use a formatted SD card for the transfer process.
