  19. Hi Bro, it’s a good procedure but I like some others also have a lock bootloader. I could not apply to Xiaomi for permission to unlock because my MI MAX 2 is in bootloop and I did not have the device bound to any mi acc, usb debugging not set, not on dev mode etc My MM2 was only 2 hrs old in my hands when I did updater app to upgrade to MIUI 9. It froze and bootlooped ever since. And it is an export model so I could not get any support from Xiaomi svc center. If there is a way to unlock the BL without having to go thru’ Xiaomi’s permission, pls share with us. Thks

  20. “This guide will work on all Xiaomi phone whether its bootloader is locked or unlocked.”
    Man, correct your article. This is wrong. This guide is USELESS for locked bootloaders.
