Dear all as per today firmware (1.16.07) I cannot switch language on mine L66 NFC (Chinese version not International). I've have only 4 options available (on oth phone and band) Chinese * 2, English and Follow phone's language. If I select follow phone language (even if my phone is in Italian) language on the smart band is set in English. I've checked the firmware file for 1.16.07 and I saw inside that Italian is available inside the resource directory (l66_1.16.0.11.zip\META\resources\locale\text\).

There's a method to switch or I've to wait the next release where even the NFC International is available?

Please let me know.

no one can tells atm. region lock is a common solution for restrict the user and not let him/her to use the exact model outside that region. Xiaomi sometimes unlock this thing but it usually happens when the development ends and the actual band gets EOL. so it's up on Xiaomi. forcing works if the lock is not hardcoded. but usually it is. and since you cannot force flash the firmware manually you can't do nothing. the only hope is that Xiaomi one day unlock the region lock with a firmware update. so check the firmware updates frequently and test every time.

as far as we know you can't "convert" the region of a band.

Thanks for your reply and explanation! To be honest this happened even to Mi Band 5 (Chinese version)... Same story of the languages but at the end I manage to downgrade to an old firmware (I've used AmazTool) that give me the possibility to set Italian using the option Follow phone's language. Future upgrade of the firmware (I mean the official one) didn't break this settings.

Anyway let wait and I'll keep you all informed in case of news.

P.S. As per now AmazTool isn't compatible with Mi Band 7 (At least on iPhone)

Yes I do have Mi Band 7 with NFC CN (bought from AliX). Personally I use Zepp Life, beside the language issue (I mean cannot switch to my preferred language), everything works fine!
