@jbhfenris , you are meeting a permission issue on your XIAOMI phone, I met such issue in the past, for now I have no XIAOMI phone with me, but here from memory how I solved the problem: create a XIAOMI account with a SIM card inserted in order to be able to activate some developer options, something like that: "install apk via USB" and "USB debug (security options)" and "disable ADB authorization timeout".

I have faced the same issue and what you are suggesting will not fix it.
The this is that Xiaomi has their security service that check for that. @jbhfenris try poking around that application and see if you can disable it.
In any way this is not an STF issue IMO...

@only1God , for me it has been fixed like that but perhaps I forgot some actions, moreover I believe the OS was XIAOMI 12 or 13, so @jbhfenris try to upgrade your phone, and yes of course I confirm it is not an STF issue.

I've followed the recommended actions:

  • update to Mi 14 (latest version)
  • allow install via USB
  • disable ADB authorization timeout
  • uncheck application checking via USB
    But when I unplug or reboot the mobile, the following popup appears

even if I check the box "remember my choice" before clicking "install"
I also uninstall STFService App but the result is the same.

@jbhfenris , as I said you have also to enable "USB debug (security options)" and create a XIAOMI account with a SIM card inserted

Copy link

@jbhfenris , I got a XIAOMI 13 MIUI 14.0.12 and it works fine following my instructions

Copy link

@denis99999, for me USB debug (security settings) is ON

denis99999 commented Dec 21, 2023

@jbhfenris , sorry I don't know what is your problem with this phone, try this:

  1. disconnect the phone from the PC
  2. manually remove the STF agent on the phone
  3. disable "install via USB" and "USB debugging (security settings)" options
  4. enable "install via USB" and "USB debugging (security settings)" options accepting ALL
  5. connect the phone to the PC
