  1. Can someone help?
    I’m trying to root my Redmi 2 Pro but I’m unsure if I have to unlock bootloader or not; my device wasn’t supposed to have a locked bootloader, since that was implemented after Redmi 2 realease, but my device does have the “Unlock OEM” option under developers settings.

    Problem is, it does NOT have the “Mi Unlock Status” and trying to unlock it through pc didn’t work either, error at 99% says “Can’t verify basic files….”

    So I’m lost with that and don’t know how to proceed. I’ve saw videos skipping bootloader completely and others unlocking it, but those had the mi status option, and the first didn’t had any of the options at all… Any thoughts?

    Could I just proceed with TWRP and magisk?

  2. I am trying to unlock boot loader of POCO M2 PRO but received 168 hours wait time.

    I am confused in step where “MI UNLOCK TOOL” throws message as “PLEASE DON’T ADD ACCOUNT IN MIUI AGAIN. OTHERWISE WILL START FROM SCRATCH”…

    Followed all steps allow OEM unlock, usb debugging & mi unlock status…

  3. Just unlocked my Redmi Note 9 (“merlin”) successfully after waiting for 1 week (= 168 hours).
    BUT at least currently unlocking DOES WIPE userdata and you have to reconfigure and reinstall everything.
    At least everything you didn’t backup in Xiaomi Cloud or Google account which can be restored from there.
    Since I don’t want to store anything in any cloud I recommend to immediately unlock any Xiaomi phone and wait with using, installing and configuring it until unlock is completed – like I did 😉
    WARNING: if you don’t know what unlocking is all about this isn’t meant for you anyway – just ignore this comment and don’t even try to unlock anything on your device !

  4. Mi unlock tool shows – Read failed, please refresh or reboot the device. Tried many times, but still showing the same.
    Device – Xiaomi MIPAD 1, MIUI – 7 GLOBAL STABLE.

  5. what happens when your cable cord disconnects upon the 168 hours wait time? will it destroy the phone or just postpone the activity?
