[Q&A] Bootloader Unlock

Is there a reason why Xiaomi demands you to wait for the bootloader to be unlocked? It was first at 1440hrs then 720hrs and now it's 360hrs you have to wait till you can unlock the bootloader. Like what's the legitimate reason for this?

I think it's to keep grey importers from unlocking and installing their dicey roms, bit like honor and their blocking of launchers. At least ours is reversible

Ah interesting. Will look into this but this seems plausible as it needs a sim to do it too.

yeah, I have seen first hand what the not-so-mainstream importers add on to these ''helpful'' ROMS, and it is downright malware. And then of course Xiaomi gets the blame (as it's not that hard to remove for a power user, but a more basic one will have no clue it's not really ''out of the box''
