Background App Killing

Xiaomi devices typically have one or more aggressive battery saving features that can prevent apps such as MacroDroid from correctly functioning. In order to prevent the MacroDroid background process being killed it is necessary to configure your device appropriately to disable this app killing functionality.

Great information can be found here: https://dontkillmyapp.com/xiaomi

Please read through this site in detail and try to follow the guide as closely as possible to prevent background app killing.

App not autostarting

Some Xiaomi devices may prevent the app from auto-starting unless explicitly configured to allow it.

Please take a look at this page: https://android-arsenal.com/details/1/6771

Hello, I'm on version 5.14, Redmi 6A and since the last update my phone keeps killing Macrodroid's Notification Bar.
I have MD locked in recent apps and both MD and the helper app are excluded from battery optimization and have no restriction on energy saver.

To have the bar back I have to go to MD's Notification Bar Options and tap on "Configure Button Bar".

Did you make any change which could possibly make this happen? I also had a "Security" app update not long ago, so that could also be the cause.

Thanks

This seems to have been fixed by itself, but I got a question now.

I see that MD is listed among the apps which are NOT battery optimized. Did I put it there or it's something that MD does by itself?
Asking because I was trying to install YouTube Vanced and it asks to add another app of theirs (microG) to the battery optimization exclusion list - same as MD. So I did that but for whatever reason, every time I reboot, microG gets optimized again.

If you can shed some light, I'd appreciate.

Hi
Planning to buy Note 10 pro, Android 11, with MIUI 12.5, í think.
Can any1 confirm MD works?
MacroDroid works the very best on rooted devices so you'll need one with an unlocked bootloader and that can be rooted, also it has a variety of custom ROMs available. However, custom skins like MIUI are known for being problematic with MacroDroid

Well, I'm not planning to root my new device in the next months, so I'll probably drop MD if it really doesn't work reliably in MIUI
