Hello MIUIers, Hope you are doing well. Today we discuss bootloader unlocking procedure in Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime. Nowadays all Xiaomi phones come with locked bootloader. Why ? Because Xiaomi wants to secure their user’s data. So they lock the bootloader. If your Redmi 3S / Prime phone lost or stolen by you then no one can flash a new ROM and they can’t access your personal data which is stored on your phone. So if we see as a normal user then this is the good thing. But you know we MIUIers love to flash new ROMs. We try many ROM on our devices. So as a MIUI fan I don’t like locked bootloaders. If you want to go in Recovery mode. then you need to unlock the device bootloader. Without the unlocking bootloader, you can’t clear Wipe cache data. you can not do Wipe reset. even you can’t flash a ROM via update.zip feature. So bootloader unlock is required to perform all these tasks.
Xiaomi gives a way to unlock Redmi 3s / Prime bootloader.  the unlocking steps are simple but they take too much time. First, we send a request to Xiaomi for unlocking bootloader. Once they allow us then we can easily unlock bootloader via Mi flash unlock tool.
