How to UNLOCK Bootloader of Mi5



IMG_5705.JPG


Note: This was done personally from China Stable Rom to China Dev Rom. I havent tried on Global Stable to China Dev. If error persist, reflash to Global ROM, please refer to the instruction here http://en.miui.com/thread-260030-1-1.html . Do Not reflash to Global ROM using TWRP, your device might brick http://en.miui.com/thread-267361-1-1.html

Credit to @GR33dyBlackie   for sharing his knowledge on flashing.

UPDATE: You can now UNLOCK on CHINA STABLE ROM.

If you really need to gain Root access of your brand new Mi5, let me show you how.


Step 1: Go to download section of the forum and download the latest China Dev Rom available


Mi5 Rom Download Section


Step 2. Place the downloaded Zip file to the downloaded_rom folder found in the root folder of your Mi5, if you dont have this folder, simply create one.

Hi all.
I'm having issue to unblock the bootloader.
I had tried to download the 4 ROM from http://en.miui.com/download-299.html#435 and choose to update them manually in Updater but I always received 'Couldn't verify update package' error, please help.
