I've been trying to add it again, but i was unable to succeed. I'm only able to pair the xiaomi vacuum with the "Mainland China" locale.
Has anyone been able to use US locale. Does this improve the english translation?


As far as I know, currently only "Mainland China" locale supported for xiaomi vacuum.

I am interested in these....lots of good videos and such all over, especially european sites.

Do they have the same weird design feature like Neatos where the back flips up when backing up against a wall? I have several scuff marks all around my house because Neato always decides it doesn't like a corner/objects placed too close together and needs to violently back out.

It's cheap at Fasttech too, and they offer free shipping https://www.fasttech.com/product/573880 ... um-cleaner

(have no personal experience with them though)

I'll probably go with a seller on AliExpress who offers 3 years warranty and assures me he can send it in such a way I won't have to pay any import taxes and customs...

In my case at least once a week (sometimes once a day) I need to login again with email and password.


I have this issue.
Xiaomi knows this and they promised to fix it.

This should make it easy to add English (or even other local) voice to the Robot. Hopefully Xiaomi will add this in the future.

Hi guys,

Is there any update on getting into FEL-Mode?
I'm considering buying the thing but really like to have a full control over it.

Thanks Elias and other guys for the work in that direction ;)

Hello shein,

I havent done any efforts about disassemblying it again. Flole has suggested a way of resetting the robot into the FEL-Mode. Unfortunately there is no progress on this for now. I hope there will be soon some solution for this.

Greetings

Hello everybody,
since a few days I have a defect with my Mi robot. The message in the Mi-App refers to the LiDAR LDS unit. This seems broken, in the app it is highlighted in red. The vacuum cleaner runs only a few meters after i started it and then the led is red blinking.
Is this a known problem with the robot? Because the is no dust / dirt or something like that around the lens and the laser. I switched it off several times and put it back into the factory state. Nothing helped.

Has anyone the same problems?

Unfortunately my approach did not work. We would have to short the data lines that go directly to the flash. Or someone has to guess which test point is connected to which pin of the processor and make a list.

Hi all, I've been considering buying this vacuum as an upgrade to my Roomba 655. The one concern that I have is the availability of replacement parts. In the 2 years of ownership of my Roomba, I have replaced the side brush motor and a left wheel. I'm concerned that if these parts were not available that this unit will quickly become handicapped. Are you able to obtain parts in the US?

I have decided to give it a try and ordered a unit from Gearbest. I have seen all sorts of videos from European bloggers that say this thing is the bomb for its price.

Make sure to also check cashback sites! Topcashback and Yazing offer 5 or 6% off, the price on GB changes often with mini sales every few days.

I will gladly review once it arrives.
