I'm pretty sure that stuff is saved in the vacuum itself, but if you want to wait around and not have the zone features go for it.

also for me that stuff is saved in the vacuum, but i don't know...in the app there is a cache (15MB more or less), and if i set china server i loose that (maybe if i re-pair the vacuum all the stuff return ok, but i don't know).

at the moment i don't need the zone cleaning (i'm just curious) because i clean all the second floor...i plan to buy a second robot for the first floor, and there i need the zone cleaning because i have some carpet that it doesn't clean.

i hope that the update will come also for other server (i'm on singapore)...if it doesn't come i'll switch to china and re-pair the robot...let's see :D

thank you ;)

Well I believe the update came out a month or less ago, so hopefully they'll release it (eg: to the Singapore server) in the next few weeks...

Mag Strip Performance
A German roboter-forum post, #18 in thread for Neato robots at
http://www.roboter-forum.com/showthread.php?18590-Magnetband-Alternativen&p=332491#post332491
reports on Xiaomi strips on Xiaomi robot.
The strip works with Mi robot when under laminate flooring at the top of stairs.

I am not sure Neato Robotics mag sensors would work this far away form the strip; testing would be needed. The addition I made to Samsung Powerbot for mag strips (hacking forum) is sensitive enough to work this way.

Strips can be tested with robot on a table, using pieces of wood etc. -- no need to install in the floor initially.

Updated my server to mainland China and indeed I now get zoned cleaning...

But even though my language is "English" loads of messages in the app are now in chinese :(

For example...

If there's no obvious solution, I'll try reverting back to "Singapore" in the hope the zone functionality remains, and true/full "English" returns (again).

after the server change you have lost all the data (such as 'cleaning history, and 'care' sections) or not?

Care: Well my Filter is at 53% (replace in 80h) so looks like no, I have not lost it.

Total time: 4053min etc... So not lost that either.

Cleaning history goes back to earlier this month.


Note: I did have to reconnect the Robot on the server move. And there was software and forware updates available then. I also had to tell my phone to permit downloads from unknown providers to get the software!!!

I have a problem with the timer schedule on the V1.
When i set timer. The cleaning mode is greyed out and says update to formware version 3.3.9_003077 or later.
My vacuum is on version 3.3.9_003194. So the version is ok.

Anyone else with this problem?

Finally the zone cleanup option become available with the newer firmware 3.3.9_003194. updating is easy. Change the region in mi home app to mainland china, then reset your robot's wifi settings by pressing the power and home button together at the same time for few seconds until voice prompt. rest is easy. hope this will help all those who want zone cleaning.
