Today I want to explain how to install applications on Xiaomi Amazfit (Chinese firmware only). In fact, Amazfit has an Android based operating system, so you can install some apps as long as they’re supported. At the moment there is not a wide choice, but hopefully the available applications will gradually increase.
In order to be able to proceed with installing apps, it is important that adb is installed on our PC and runs smoothly. If you do not have an adb yet, download it from the link in the thread on xda-developers and continue with the installation confirming all the steps with Y.
How to install apps on Xiaomi Amazfit
The first thing to do is enable the launcher on Xiaomi Amazfit. To do so, go to Settings (swipe from top to bottom on the first screen), then Info, and then tap repeatedly on Legal Statement (find it at the end) until a counter reaches 0. At this point under Legal Statement you will find the Lab entry . Enter and scroll to AppList Launcher then tap and the smartwatch will restart. As soon as you reboot, always scroll right until you find a new screen, that is, the new launcher with all installed apps and the ones you will install in the future.
Install a calculator
In this example we will install a calculator, but the procedure is the same for each application, just change the apk name to the command. Download the apk installable on Xiaomi Amazfit and copy it into the adb folder.
In the same adb folder, hold down the Shift key and right-click anywhere in the folder, then click Open Command here . Connect Amazfit to your PC and type adb devices to verify it has been recognized, and then type the following command to install the application
Wait a few seconds until the Success message confirms the completion of the installation.
Great, the application is installed on your Amazfit and you can disconnect it from your PC. The new installed app you found in the launcher activated with the previous step!
