Go to reply no.
Unlocking tool supported devices:
Redmi Note 3, Mi 4c, Mi Note Pro, Redmi 3, Mi 5, Mi Max

Note:

1. Due to large amounts of requests, please wait for 10-12 days after submitting your application. If you haven't get any info after 10-12 days, please reply to this thread with your Xiaomi account number, we will check it for you. Thanks for understanding

2. The unlocking procedure only supports MIUI China developer version (6.1.12 or later version) currently. MIUI China stable version will get supported in future updates

3. Some Mi Note Pro users could not unlock bootloader after updating to 6.1.12. This issue has been solved.

Unlocking Bootloader Procedure:

1. Download zip file (recovery file) of China developer ROM for your device, put it into phone storage (If you're using Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm version or Mi 5, you can unlock on MIUI Global Stable ROM, click here to download). Go to Updater app, press the three dot on upper right corner, and select 'Choose update package'. Choose the zip file you just put in phone storage. The update will wipe all user data, please make backup beforehand.
2. Log into the Mi account which has acquired unlocking permission on your device
3. Turn off your device, press the Power button and Volume - button at the same time to enter bootloader mode
4. Log into the unlocking tool on PC with the same Mi account. Connect the device with the PC using USB cable
5. Press 'Unlock'. The unlocking process will complete in about 10 seconds

After unlocking bootloader, users will be able to flash fastboot ROMs and custom ROMs. The unlocked device will be marked in the official service end. Users could lock bootloader again by flashing official MIUI ROMs. (This will need to use fastboot oem lock. Please note to flash offcial MIUI ROMs, otherwise your system won't be able to start)

Notes:
1. After getting unlocking permission for a Mi account, users can unlock the verified device immediately. One Mi account could only unlock one device within 30 days
2. Users could require for unlocking permission in this site: http://en.miui.com/unlock/
3. If a prompt says that the current account is not logged into a connected device. Please log in with this account on the device that needs to be unlocked
4. If your device is encrypted, unlocking bootloader will wipe all user data. Please perform a backup beforehand5. If your application has been rejected, please try to apply again later. And please input the real reason that you want to unlock your device in Chinese or English. Don't copy and paste others' unlocking reasons.

I tried on v5.12.24 and v5.12.31 developer rom. I used all the versions of MiFlashunlock program. The result is the same. It is obvious it is related with receiving the right to do it from the Xiaomi.

Xiaomi, I have o question to YOU.
HOW COME that I bought a phone and I cannot use it the way I like?
HOW COME I paid money for a device, and ... you are telling me I should use it the way YOU LIKE?
In the moment I paid the money, the phone is mine, and is against every logic what you do. I do not care about your reasons related with security and stuff. You are just copying Apple with their model, and frankly, that is counter productive. That is not MI spirit.
If I paid for the phone, ALLOW ME to use it the way I like !!!!!!!

Bootloader unlock was disappointed for me. I do not care about your reasons related with security and stuff.  I think that miui unlock side will be access diamond member. So, I tried to reach diamond member but I can't access it. Their limitations made me sad. I decided, redmi note 3 is the last using xiaomi products of my life. Bye xiaomi.

Xiaomi, I have o question to YOU.

Xiaomi, I'm so disappointed of your decision to lock devices. When I bought Mi2, everyone asked me: "What is it?... I don't know this brand? ... Chinese? And you paid for this $400? You are a mad man." But I believed in Xiaomi. For years I used only developers firmwares (global and local ones). I was writing messages to developers about bugs, with recommendations and localization issues.
I like Xiaomi phones. Because I'm a geek, because Xiaomi has interesting concept, because they have low price & powerful hardware. After my recommendations more than dozens of my friends bought Xiaomi phones. Only this autumn I bought 3 new Xiaomi phones. I know Xiaomi as a company that communicates and listens their fans from whole over the world.
For years I never ever had any problems with their devices till this year. Guys, what happened with you? Firstly you asked thousands of developers to join your community, to start to work on localized firmwares. And now when there are millions of people using localized firmwares you just locked their devices. Not only I received bootloop after new over-the-air update. I found thousands and thousands posts on European, Russian, Asian and American forums about this problem.
Do you understand what you just started? It can be start of end of Xiaomi era, that just begins. Last year Xiaomi took 5th place in the world smartphones market. But news about locking... Xiaomi users are bewildered.
I sent request for unlock, I'm waiting patiently. But I want to use my phone NOW!!! And millions of people agreed with me!!! It is so sad, that maybe in a few years nobody knows Xiaomi as a brand. And all that started from stupid locking feature...

Bad decision.
If this is the way you want to handle the problem of non-genuine phones arriving at cu ...

Don't forget the justification for this move: "Xiaomi is now an international brand".
They are so international that the unlock code request webpage and the unlock software are in Chinese.

Now mi4c has locked bootloader... No xiaomi, just no. If a seller sells me a mi4c full of bloatwares i will surely install the lastest stable/developer rom (as i did). A newbie certainly will not buy a mi phone, also maybe they have never heard about Xiaomi. That's not fair and you are just obstacling modding for our devices. if you really must do it (lock bootloader for safety problems) just do it on new phones.

Oh no. This tutorial doesnt work for my rmn3. After using 5 mi phone before, i feel xiaomi have lost their spirits from the past. Xiaomi now just like samsung but in lowerpriced. I am very sad to know that xiaomi is not just product that i've known in 2014.

So, when do we receive the right to do it? Because I have just tried again, and is not working!
I get the same bla, bla (translated with Google translate)

"Unlock application permissions
Application has been successfully submitted, please be patient review

After approval, we will notify you via SMS.
If the audit over 10 days did not pass, go forum - Complaints Forum Posts inquiry"

Please define what a senior memeber is. I am already a senior member, and I don't have the right to do it.

Xiaomi is now trying to act smart. But we the users are not noobs ...Locking bootloader means you are trying to control the users !!! Listen!!! You have forgotten, we the users of your devices made you and now you are showing your true color... Do not try to put your decisions on your consumers' neck... You are already started loosing your customers and if you still do not change your attitude then you will vanish from the market very soon...

Comment

天经地米 Yes that is exactly why they have almost 20million preorders for the newest device that is locked. Becasue they will "vanish from he market very soon"  04:05, Mar-06-2016
