Unlock Your Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Bootloader

I recommended Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 to a friend of mine, and she bought it from Gearbest. Few weeks later, we met again and I asked her how is new phone and she said, "Galaxy + iPhone = Xiaomi". Without much said, she gave me a full rundown about the awesomeness of the phone. and today, you are going to learn how you can you can unlock your device' bootloader. But before we do that, let me quickly tell you what a boot loader is.

In a layman's simplest terms, A boot loader is a program that loads before an operating system of a particular device is loaded into the device memory. With a boot loader, you can always choose which platform you'd like to use in your device when ever the device is turned on.

In the case of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, the manufacturer of this device made it pretty secure, unlike some MTK devices I've worked with. So for you to unlock your device boot loader, you have to first get permission from Xiaomi by going to their unlock page I recommend using Chrome so that you can use it to translate the page to English, unless you speak and understand Chinese, then there wouldn't be any need for translate.

....  Once the page is opened, click on Unlock Now

.... Now fill in your Xiaomi Account details.

.... Once logged in, you’ll see the Unlock Application Permissions page which will look exactly or similar to this one below

....  Just fill in the required details and then click on Apply Immediately, if everything checks, you will see a success mssg like this 

But hold on, this is just the first part, you still have a thing or two to do, then we'll be through.

You will receive a notification, permitting you to unlock your Xiaomi, login to your Xiamoi account using device.

.... Boot into bootloader by  press and hold Vol. up, Volume down and the Power button all together while the device is turned off.

.... Download MiFlash tools from Here

.... Connect your device device to the pc using USB cable, open the MiFlash tool you downloaded and wait for it to detect your device

.... Once the flash tool recognizes your phone, the unlock button will become active. Click it to unlock and that's it.
