2.Set the location to China

Some online stores sell a Chinese version of the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum which works only with the Mainland China region in the Mi Home app. If the robot comes with a Chinese user manual in the box, most likely you have a Chinese version.

If you have a Chinese version, you should change your region to Mainland China: open the Mi Home app, tap on the Profile → Settings → Region → Chinese mainland. After changing the region, you will be logged out of the app, so you should sign in again. FIY, If you do not have an account, you can not get a confirmation email from Mainland China(Mi Home app), So Pick the USA SERVER..then set up an account. Once you get the confirmation email, go into the app and then set the location to Mainland China.
