[Other] Bootloader unlock Trouble

Hi, I have trouble unlocking the bootloader. Mi Unlock gets stuck at 50%. Depending on the version and computer I use, ehe message ist either something with "couldn' verify device, error -1" or "can't get info, connect again" (see picture). Never have I ever seen the info how long I should wait (the unlock countdown)

Phone is a Mi 8 Global
System is MIUI Global 10.3.3


The phone was added to my account 10 June.
USB Debugging is activated
OEM Unlocking is activated (deactivating makes no difference)
my computers are allowed for adb.
adb is working
fastboot is working
Xiaomi drivers are installed
USB file transfer is working

I tried with two different Computers (one AMD with Windows 10, one Intel with Windows 8.1)
I tried all available USB port (USB2 and USB3)


Still, I get this error. Any idea anyone?

kindly give internet connection to your pc and try again and also check your cable is fully connected to your pc or not.

Tried different cables as well. Cable connection is flawless.
PC has internet access of course. What is the IP or FQDN of the server that is used for unlocking? So I can check if that specific address might for some reason be blocked?

You can take a look at the log of Mi Unlock Tool. Click on the Gear Icon and there will be an option to see the log.

Sure. Unfortunately, neither miflash_unlock.log nor cef.log contain any server addresses with the exception of https://account.xiaomi.com.

This is a part of the miflash_unlock.log

But what does it mean?

Looks like server issue. You can use Fiddler Proxy to check the website. Maybe try using a VPN. Also can try the unofficial tool XiaomiTool V2 : https://www.xiaomitool.com/V2/

Thanks! VPN did not work. But the XiaomiTool V2 worked first try, so maybe it was a driver issue after all. Important thing is that the bootloader is now unlocked. Thanks again!

XiaomiTool V2 works flawless.

make sure...
1. your device is added to your MI account. (unlock purpose in developer mode)2. Allow device bootloader to be unlocked from developer option.
3. a sim card data connectivity is a must.
4. use VPN for DATA connectivity.

I've been asked to try in 131 days, are you guys kidding.  Previously I've unlocked my Note 5 Pro in 30 minutes.

Did you boot your device into Fastboot mode when connecting to Mi Unlock?
