MIMO crashes on Google Pixel 3XL – Android 12 issue!

I’m having a problem activating my new DJI Pocket 2 Creator Combo. I’ve installed the MIMO app multiple times and it keeps crashing.

The Mimo app is broken on Android 12

The Mimo app keeps crashing on opening since I installed the Android 12 update on my Samsung A32. DJI, can you fix this? I will be traveling with my Osmo Pocket next month and will rely more on the Mimo app.

The problem occurs even on devices that are explicitly listed under the models compatible with the app.

I have checked that my Pixel 3XL is listed as compatible at and I have Android 12 installed.

I downloaded and installed MIMO version 1.7.24

Some reports confirm that the app still works fine on older versions of Android.

Okay it worked on my old battered Pixel 2 with Android 10. However, it has to work with Andriod 12 as I will only be taking one phone with me during my never-ending summer in Latin America that starts in about a month.

Possible workaround

There is no official confirmation of the issue from the DJI team yet. Some DJI forum moderators even suggested that the problem might be with the smartphone and not the app.

Pending an official announcement, there is a workaround that has helped some users. Basically, you need to download the JDI Mimo app from the company’s official website (through this link).

Then you need to enable permission for your Android device to allow installing apps from unknown sources (the warning will appear when you try to install the app) and finally complete the installation.

In the following video you can see how the previous steps solved the problem. So, there are chances that a corrupted file was accidentally uploaded to the Play Store.

If you have already installed the broken DJI Mimo app, it is recommended to clean all data and cache first, then uninstall and reinstall the app from DJI website.

We will update this story as events develop.
