While the fitness tracker is a great bang-for-buck device because of its features, it also allows for a lot of customization. This includes changing everything from straps to watch faces.

How to flash Mi Band 4 custom firmware
Step 1: Before you get started, get all the tools and files you need. Firstly, make sure you have Mi Fit app on your phone and the app is connected to your Mi Band 4. Then go to the Google Play Store and download the ‘Notify & Fitness for Mi Band’ application. This app will help you flash the custom resources on your Mi Band. Open the app and set it up by providing all the necessary permissions.
Step 2: Head over to https://geekdoing.com/forums/resources.45/ and check out all the custom resource packs available for your Mi Band 4. Download the Avengers V88 pack by dilutewater. You may need to register yourself on the GeekDoing website (free) before you can download the resource packs. DO NOT mix a resource pack corresponding to a particular firmware with another firmware. This could brick your device.
Check your Mi Band 4 firmware version by going to the Mi Fit app. You can find your firmware version under Profile >> Mi Smart Band 4 >> Firmware Version. If you’re on the latest firmware (V18.104.22.168), then you must download the V88 resource packs.
Once you have downloaded the file, go to the ‘Notify & Fitness for Mi Band’ app. Now we will flash the file. It is a good idea to have at least 30 percent battery on the Mi Band 4 before you begin. To do this, head over to the ‘Tools’ section of the application as shown in the picture.
Choose the ‘Update Mi Band firmware’ tab. Here, click on ‘Choose file’ and navigate to the Avengers resource pack you just downloaded. Your resource pack file will be a .bin file. Once you have selected your file, click on ‘Start update’ to start flashing the file. Try flashing the file with the first ‘Alternate Method’ option. Go to the second option only if you face issues.
The flashing process will take a while. Note that even after the progress pie chart reaches 100 percent, your band will continue to ‘update’ for a couple of more minutes. Do not panic as this is normal. Once the update completes on your Mi Band, scroll away to see the new icons.
Also if you do start facing issues with notifications due to conflicts between the new application and Mi Fit, simply uninstall the ‘Notify & Fitness for Mi Band’ app.
Now that you know how to change the resource packs on your Mi Band 4, you could even check out other brilliant resource packs available on the website. Note that once you download a custom resource pack, you can still change your watch faces without affecting it. Choose a good third-party watch face that goes with the resource pack you just installed.
