Xiaomi Mi Box S and Mi Box 4K devices are now receiving a new OTA update to their fourth Android 9 Pie Beta program. It features a new build number OTA4 Beta 2 R3138. This is a HotFix OTA update and a must-have for all the users who have upgraded their Android Box to the latest OTA4 Beta 1.
While the previous update did bring support for Xiaomi’s new Peel Mi Remote app, it also brought some bugs with it such as green screen issues and USB issues. Download and install the latest OTA4 Beta 2 HotFix update for Xiaomi Mi Box S/4K in order to address these issues.
If you don’t already know, Xiaomi rolled out a new Android 9 Pie beta program for the Mi Box with build OTA4 Beta 0 3015. After almost a month’s wait, the OEM released OTA 4 Beta 1 update with a new build that featured Peel Mi Remote support; which is a universal remote for Xiaomi TV and Android Box.
The OTA4 Beta 2 is a must have update if you are on the fourth Android 9 Pie beta program, according to the changelog:
Peel Mi Remote is an extension for the stock Xiaomi Mi Remote that helps you control all of your Xiaomi devices right from your smartphone. It makes the Mi Remote app truly universal for TV and set-top box. However, you still need an infrared IR blaster on your Xiaomi smartphone in order to use the app.
The Mi Box S has received 3 consecutive beta programs to date, before finally rolling out a stable Android 9 Pie build a couple of months ago. Here, download Xiaomi Mi Box S/4K’s latest OTA update.
