Hi MIUIers,

We've locked bootloader for Redmi Note 3 since its launching in order to protect user data safety. As we said before, we'll be making the same change for other Mi devices gradually. Now, the list will include Mi 4c and Mi Note Pro also.

If you're not famaliar with the situation, please read the following explanation.

Special Note: This situation only applies to MIUI China Developer ROM for now.


Why did Mi lock the bootloader for Mi devices?
Mi is an international brand now, but it's only in few countries currently, and is still in the stage of expanding its international market. So it's difficult for users from countries where Mi is not officially sold to buy Mi phones. Many users have taken the risk of buying from a unofficial reseller. But they sometimes get fake Mi phones, or Mi phones with unofficial ROM loaded with bloatware. You guys must have seen some users asking in the forum whether their Mi phones are genuine, or that they have weird ROM version installed on their new phones. This is really bad for user experience, and it might even cause property loss if some malware are installed. This situation also exists in China market.

Another problem Mi users have often encountered is that, after their Mi phones are lost or stolen, the person who got the device could easily flash a new ROM into it, and makes it almost impossible for our users to get their phones back. In the recent MIUI developer version update, we've add a feature that needs users to enter their Mi account info to use the phone after doing a full wipe. But if an ill-intentioned person knows how to use fastboot method to flash ROMs, this will not stop him/her from gaining control of the phone.

Based on the above two reasons, we've decided to lock the bootloader. We've also made changes to Mi Cloud's 'Find Device' function, and adjusted system update's verifying logic.By these combined methods, user data can be better protected, and user experience can also be improved.

What will change after locking bootloader?
  • Locking bootloader will not affect normal OTA updates
  • ROOT will be disabled if user has enabled it before. Enabling ROOT will need to unlock bootloader
  • Recovery mode is changed. Updating via Recovery will need to use Mi PC Suite
  • Devices with locked bootloader can not update using Miflash. Users need to unlock bootloader if they want to flash Fastboot ROMs.

Isn't locking bootloader against Mi's 'geek' spirit?
Locking bootloader is aimed to provide better user experience, which we've been trying to do the whole time. In the meantime, we've provided a unlocking tool for senior users who know their ways around flashing and tweaking their devices. (Unlocking Tutorial)

The unlocking process is really simple. After unlocking, the device can do all the things as before we locked bootloader.

The unlocking procedure will need Internet access to get the unlocking password. Also, the Mi Account logged in on the Mi phone and the unlocking tool needs to be the same. Otherwise the unlocking request will be denied. This will ensure that ill-intentioned people will not get access to your personal data.

Final note, if you don't know that much about Android, flashing, custom ROMs etc. It's not recommended for you to unlock the bootloader. It might cause serious damage to your device or personal data.

I'm xiaomi fan for few years now. Currently i have two xiaomi phones, and i planed to get RN3. The only reason i didn't buy it is locked bootloader. I xiaomi decides to lock bootloader on all future phones, then i would never buy mi phone again.

I bought my Mi4C specifically because of its nexus like feel: Easy to flash custom roms, awesome price for the provided hardware.

If Xiaomi now locks the bootloader and you have to use some PC software you don't need or chinese unlock website, the Mi4c has been my last Xiaomi device.
I don't want some MIUI PC software.
I don't need an MI account.
I don't want to go through a chinese registration process.
I don't even want the MIUI ROM: I want to do what I want with my phone. I paid money for it. If I want to flash CyanogenMod, I should be able to do it without harrassment.
If I decide to have a rooted phone, why not make it as easy as possible?

And the reason is to make it harder thiefs??
Laughable explanation. One of the best selling phones in Europe was the Nexus 4 two years ago, with a bootloader that can be easily unlocked and, as a nexus device, kernel sources! THATS the way to handle your customers, not locking them out.

Dont make it harder for you customers. There is already talks in forums that the Red Mi 3 has a locked bootloader, which will harm your sales, I predict.

@meredithhan
thank you for the explanations

but what's funny is that these methods are blocking many communities, while Chinese resellers easy arrive at flash fastboot rom full of malicious software.
Chinese resellers are apparently stronger than Mi and stronger than communities

This is how I think the bootloader locking should be
* Bootloader can be unlocked using a simple "fastboot oem unlock"
* Bootloader can only be relocked if it has an official, non tampered ROM installed.
* As a safety measure, data will be wiped on unlock or relock.
* Warranty should not be affected unless it is proven that custom software caused irreparable damage.
* Display a disclaimer that the user must agree to once an unlock command has been issued.
* When bootloader is unlocked, display an open padlock on the bootscreen (a la Google Nexus)
* Allow fastboot or a PC recovery program (when bootloader is locked) to install official ROMs in the event of a brick.
* Put an activation lock for anti-theft purposes
   - that can only be activated when using an official, untampered ROM and when bootloader is locked.
   - bootloader CANNOT be unlocked while the activation lock is active.
   - user can enable/disable activation lock at any time using a Xiaomi account.
   - user must use registered Xiaomi account to unlock the phone (when activation lock is active) in the event of a fastboot ROM recovery or a factory reset.

Does anyone agree with me? I'm open to suggestions.

i am at a loss for words, i hate this development, and if i were you id revert this as soon as i can or continue with this and lose most of your advanced users. the application process is ridiculous, if you want to lock the bootloader then do it like LG does, locked bootloader but easy to unlock if you want to. and why would i need to explain why i want to unlock my bootloader? all you guys need to do is show a disclaimer and if they accept then its their responsibilty. ive been hearing all this bias for diamond and higher ranked members getting priority for the application and i am definitely not amused. your gpl violations was already bad and yet now you want to lock your users? im watching you xiaomi, and if you do more stuff like this, then I might just jump ship to another company.

It would work like iOS. If someone steal your phone per say, they can't install any rom on it simp ...

"Stop complaining and learn a bit about it" u say? F**k Off if u dont understand anything

buy mi4c or redmi note 3 then your phone bootloop and u must wait 3 weeks so your phone can be use again, let me see if u still can say that word again

Lots of people buy their new mi device from China via online which comes with tampered rom that full of bloatware
If it comes with locked bootloader why those seller still can flash those so called modified rom on the first place?

Not all country have the privilege to purchase Mi devices outside China and India that got the official release
That's why most will buy it from online reseller because they are mi fans and want to get the latest Mi devices even it's not been sold in their country
But with the locked bootloader creating more troubles than a solutions
Lots mi fans will surely change to other brand (me also)

Well am very angry at this development , Why can't it be a simple process done within 6-7 hours , Rather than taking about 15 days in the case of some people who have bricked their devices?Why the preferential treatment For Diamond members ?Are others not your customers ? If security was the main point of locking the boot loader, Why Couldn't you just use a disclaimer about the possible security implications and leave it at that?
There can be only one possible reason why this decision has been made , Xiaomi has made certain deals with apps developers and will then litter their devices  with these spam apps with no way to delete them.

I want unlocked phones  because if , it will stuck at bootloader then unlocking will erase everything. So locked bootloader has less  advantages . On the other hand by installing twrp and others custom  recoveries we can safe our data  even  when Rom is not working.

It is very common problem which can happen with anyone, when we update our phone after then it does not work.
To solve this issue , it should be unlocked via fastboot method with unique pin codes. Same like sim cards.
