The oem unlock command still tells me I don't have permission or something... then when I try to boo ...

Hi Maysword,

Here is the solution for those who stuck on soft bricked Redmi note 3 while trying to unlock bootloader with unofficial method.
Below are the symptoms of the issue
-->We can enter into fastboot by pressing power + Volume down button, but of no use due to locked bootloader.
--> Phone gets restarts when you hold down the power button and black screen after displaying mi logo for couple of seconds. When you connect the phone to PC/LAPTOP it gives a blinking Red LED.
--> when you connect the phone to PC/LAPTOP, it will be detected as Qualcomm HS-USB diagnostic 900E

I faced this issue and could fix the problem by using below method.

1. Enter fastboot by holding vol down + power
2. Plug your RN3Pro to PC
2. Flash original bootloader from official fastboot firmware
fastboot flash aboot emmc_appsboot.mbn
fastboot flash abootbak emmc_appsboot.mbn
3. Type again :
fastboot reboot

Thanks and Regards,

Fazil Jabbar
