How to unlock mi Bootloader?

Working with issues that include system specific changes is not risky when concerned to redmi devices. Undoubtedly mi devices are the best handsets to deal with when it comes to any software issue. The OS is so well programmed to work and optimize with any change that is software related.

Xiaomi has a lot of back end features that are working all the time towards making the whole software experience so premium. MI bootloader is one such feature that has been of ample use and high USP for xiaomi and its users. However it doesn’t come out of the box and one has to unlock it which includes quite famous terms in it. The well-known 360 hours wait for unlocking bootloader has been a pain to mi users. It doesn’t involve any kind of significant work but the waiting time is quite long (2 months or around)

That being said and after lot of testing we are here with a solution that will allow you to bypass this long waiting time and make the entire process very efficient.

Let’s see step-wise and in detail! Remember you will need two mi UI accounts and only then you can proceed with the unlocking.
