I'm not responsible if anything happens to your device. If you execute theseAiO procedures properly then you shouldn't face any problems.

Before you proceed please back up all yourimportant data and make sure that your phone battery is charged 80%!

A. Prerequisites:

Thank-you!!

You have to give a reason for requesting to unlock the bootloader.


A question: should I now also make a formal request to unlock the bootloader, as was the case in the past?
And, if so, to whom should I send it? ;-)

I asked for approval of my Xiaomi accounts long time ago and at that time I had to give a reason for unlock-approval. Seems recently that Xiaomi is dispensing with asking for a reason, and so I deleted that part from my AiO.
