Greetings MIUIers!

173421c01rrlvv8lrf2000.png.thumb.jpg


Previously, we have showed you How to Unlock Bootloader of Mi 5, but this works across all Mi and Redmi Series smartphones. Now if you were able to push thru without problem, then that's good for you.

Recently we have received lots of users complaining about not being able to unlock and stuck at 50% upon verifying the device, most errors were mismatch of Mi Account on Mi Unlock Tool and Mi Device to be unlocked.

Now this tutorial is to help you push the unlocking beyond 50%, you can unlock on CHINA DEVELOPERS
ROM using this method IMMEDIATELY. Global Dev, Global Stable, China Stable meanwhile users reported can work too but need to wait for 4-5 days and @amit_kafle confirmed it worked on Global Stable.

After getting in touch with @lexie13

We were able to found out that there is a workaround, the method is to make the MI account in the PC match the MI account on the phone to be unlocked.

Now you have to go inside your Mi Account on your phone and check the Find Device if its ON, if yes, proceed to next step.

Screenshot_2016-10-15-16-59-42-957_com.miui.cloudservice.png

Go to Settings \ Additional Settings \ Privacy \ Android Device Manager and Enable it

Go to i.mi.com and log into the Mi Account thats the same as the one in your phone, select FIND DEVICE.

Let it detect your phone and it should look like this, and please check if details of your phone and location is correct. Now don't click Erase, Alarm or Lock. You will be messing around for sure with your account.

Now if it's correct, then proceed to unlocking using the Mi Unlock Kit found at en.miui.com/unlock

Success!

Thanks to lexie13 for sharing his knowledge. @sepneela for his guidance.

Hellò, my MI4C is locked in fastboot mode. I've received permission from XIAOMI to unlock but the device isn't verified because "current account is different from the account info in the device" (device location was not set). Now the device is off and i can't unlock, how can i solve this problem?
Many thanks
Roberto
