Hello MIUI Fan's!
Today you'll know why on some device you can't lock bootloader. In 2018 year Xiaomi change police for lock bootloader, and all model 2018+ have this new policy.

If you have Device for China (China version), don't Lock BOOTLOADER on this Device after flashing Global ROM, same with GLOBAL Device and China ROM. If you Lock it, Device will be always boot into MI Recovery 3.0 and show you Red Message "This MIUI version can't be installed on this Device". For restore such Device need use EDL (but for now EDL also need permission, you can't flash it without permission). Now all new Device have this Policy

Here i write all model 2018-2019 years. Be careful!!
  • All МI 9/MI9T
  • Redmi K20/K20 Pro ("davinci, raphael")
  • MI Mix 3 ("perseus")
  • MI 6X ("wayne")
  • MI 8 ("dipper")
  • MI 8 EE, MI 8 Transparent Exploration Edition ("ursa")
  • MI 8 SE ("sirius")
  • MI 8 Lite, MI 8 Youth Edition ("platina")
  • MI 8 Pro, MI 8 screen fingerprint board ("equuleus")
  • MI Max 3 ("nitrogen")
  • MI Mix 2S ("polaris")
  • Mi Pad 4 Plus ("clover")
  • Redmi Note 5A ("ugg")
  • Redmi Y1 Lite ("ugglite")
  • Redmi Y2/Redmi S2 ("ysl")
  • Redmi 5 ("rosy")
  • Redmi 5A ("riva")
  • Redmi 6 ("cereus")
  • Redmi 6A ("cactus")
  • Redmi 6 Pro ("sakura" and "sakura_india")

  • Redmi Note 5/Redmi 5 Plus ("vince")
  • Redmi Note 5 Pro/Redmi Note 5 AI ("whyred")
  • Redmi Note 7 ("lavender")
  • Redmi Note 7 Pro ("violet")

To find out what your smartphone is global or china version, take a look at its box.
If there is an inscription GLOBAL or box is completely in English - this is the global version. But if box without such an inscription and all in Chinese is the Chinese version of the device. If you lock the bootloader on it while being on any other rom that the one it originnaly shiped, you will get this message below.

Thanks to all!

The problem is MiFlash choose "Flash and Lock" by default. People forgot to change and accidentally locked the phone after changing ROM.
