How To Fix Xiaomi Pad 6 WideVine DRM Bug – System ID 0?

Regarding tablet offerings, Xiaomi is making a name for itself with some impressive deals. One such example is the sixth iteration in its popular Pad series.

With a 144Hz, HDR10-compliant screen and 11 inches of viewing space, you will surely get an immersive experience. Unless you have an issue with WideVine DRM, you’ll see a 0 instead of your System ID on your Xiaomi Pad 6.

Due to this, the WideVine Certification could only certify the content up to a maximum resolution of 480p. However, in most cases, the Certification has degraded to L3. In rare instances, the Certification is still L1, which is quite astonishing, to say the least. So all the apps that behold DRM-protected content [Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime] are bugged with this issue, with YouTube being the sole survivor.

In addition, some users reportedly get error messages such as {Device Failure Error:500,-172} and {App restart require Error: 503,-172}. So the real question is- does a fix exist for this issue?
