Facebook Twitter Google Plus Pinterest WhatsAppXiaomi Redmi Note 3 was introduced a few months back and it has been one of the best-selling devices of 2016. While majority of the users are happy with the out of box experience, some want to customize their devices to their liking by rooting and/or installing custom ROMs. Getting on the advanced customization train requires that the bootloader be unlocked. Xiaomi offers the official method to unlock the bootloader of Redmi Note 3. And the good thing is you will not lose the warranty by unlocking bootloader. (adsbygoogle = window. adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Besides the Redmi Note 3, this method can be used to unlock any other Xiaomi device which comes with a locked bootloader. What you need (Requisites)Xiaomi Redmi Note 3Download Mi Unlock ToolUSB cableA Windows PCPart 1 – Apply for Bootloader Unlock Code To avoid unofficial editing of phone’s firmware, Xiaomi now requires that users enter a unique unlock code to unlock bootloaders. This code can be easily applied for at the Xiaomi website. Open en. miui. com/unlock in your web browser. Click Unlock Now and Login using your Mi Account credentials or Facebook account. Submit your name, IMEI and other details along with a reason why you want to unlock the bootloader. It may take upto 2 days to get the unlock code. The approval will be sent to your phone as a text message. Part 2 – Unlocking using the Mi Unlock ToolOnce you receive the unlock code, it is a matter of few minutes to unlock the bootloader of Redmi Note 3 using the Mi Unlock Tool. All data on device will be permanently erased (including contents of the internal SD). Make sure that you backup everything that is important. Install Mi Unlock Tool on your PC. Open Mi Unlock tool and login to your Mi account using your credentials. Mi Unlock ToolOnce logged in, switch off your device, boot it up in Fastboot mode. To access Fastboot, press and hold power button and volume down buttons together for 3 seconds. A new window will open up which will show you an Mi bunny logo. Now connect your phone to the PC using USB cable. The Mi Unlock tool will detect your phone. Once detected, click the UNLOCK button. It will show you the progress. If it completes without any issues, your boot loader will be unlocked. If the unlocking process fails at 50%, wait for 2 days and try again. If successfully unlocked, you’re all set to ride the train of Android customization. Just be careful as flashing a ROM not designed for your phone can permanently damage it. Good luck!

Rahul Joseph says: January 28, 2017 at 3:20 pm Akhil, its not working. It is stuck at 50%.Can you tell me how to unlock bootloader unofficially? Reply Akhil G says: January 28, 2017 at 7:19 pm Don’t try any of the unofficial methods. It may harm your device. You can do it officially. Have you got the unlock permission from Xiaomi? If yes, you need to install latest drivers on your PC. For that, you can install Xiaomi’s PC Companion software which contains required drivers. After installing the drivers, try again the same procedure. Reply Rahul Joseph says: January 28, 2017 at 8:56 am Will unlocking bootloader erase all the data in the phone storage? Reply Akhil G says: January 28, 2017 at 8:59 am No, It won’tReply Rahul Joseph says: January 28, 2017 at 8:26 am I am going to unlock my bootloader for redmi note 3. Is there will be any problem if the process fails after 50% ? Will my phone get damaged? Reply Akhil G says: January 28, 2017 at 8:40 am No problems Rahul, If the process stops at 50%, it indicates that you are missing some drivers on your PC. You can install necessary drivers and try again in that case. Nothing gonna happen to your device. Don’t worry. Reply Rahul Joseph says: January 28, 2017 at 8:49 am Thankyou Akhil. I just want to ask you is it necessary to unlock the bootloader if i am goin to root and install cyanogenmod in my phone?

Reply Narender Singh says: January 10, 2017 at 10:26 pm Yes, you need an unlocked bootloader to root your phone ??Reply Sonal says: December 30, 2016 at 7:54 pm I have bought my redmi note 3 in june….It has got locked ….And unfortunately I have forgotten the password…. It’s abt a week.,.I haven’t downloaded the mi account….I’m not much of technology friendly….Pls suggest a simple way out..,Reply Anil Sarwal says: December 25, 2016 at 10:22 pm I have got permission to unlock my Redmi note 3 but every time it stops at 50%.This is most annoying to say the least! Any help please…Reply satin says: December 23, 2016 at 5:38 pm I didnt get any code to my phoneReply Wim says: December 21, 2016 at 9:22 pm Everything i possibly could think off. Lets not forget that Samsung is coming with the S8, somewhere in march ’17.Reply Wim says: December 21, 2016 at 7:05 pm Now I have the permission to unlock the device, but after several attempts the keeps on saying: can’t verify the device, account is not the same as in the phone. I now wat my account is, its in the phone, under accounts. Miui is not responding, wat to do? Reply Narender Singh says: December 21, 2016 at 8:49 pm This is quite confusing, buddy. And I doubt I can offer much of help. Try with all of your email IDs that you use and one might work out? Reply Wim says: December 19, 2016 at 12:43 am I tright a factory reset 3 times. Starting up twice remained. Since the installation of the app :Metal:, a web based replacement for Facebook, now I can send Personal messages. Other complaints are still the same. Apps still stay in the internal memory and can’t be moved to the SD Card. So, the question remains, is there a way to root the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3?Reply Wim says: December 17, 2016 at 3:27 pm To start with, when I start the phone up, I have to do that twice. Loading the battery, I have tried it with several loaders, but sometimes it just stops loading for no reasons. I cant send messages with the Facebook’s messenger, it just don’t work. Apps disappearing, and worse, I cant move apps from the internal memory to the SD Card. Physicly it is a good phone, solid, one peace metal, 4100 mah battery. But these weard things, and I am not gonna send it back to Banggood, it is to expensive, and what do I get back? Reply Narender Singh says: December 18, 2016 at 10:23 am Umm.. That is weird. Is it running the stock ROM? Did you try a factory reset? Reply Wim says: December 16, 2016 at 3:40 pm Do I need a custom rom to get the phone working again? And are all my apps gone, including Google play store, to get them back. And if I need a custom rom, where can I get one, witch one is prefered? Reply Narender Singh says: December 17, 2016 at 12:03 am Can you please clarify what has happened to your phone? Reply AKHIL G says: September 2, 2016 at 1:16 pm Yes, it works perfectly on 32 Bit PCReply ram says: September 2, 2016 at 10:41 am will mi unlock tool work in 32bit pcReply Fazal says: August 15, 2016 at 1
1:02 pm Is this the same procedure for unlocking the bootloader of the Xiaomi Mi Max? I purchased the Mi Max over the redmi note 3 as it came with Marshmallow. Reply Fazal says: August 15, 2016 at 11:05 pm Also noticed that there is an option called OEM Unlocking (Allow the bootloader to be unlocked) in the developer options of my Mi Max. What’s this for? Reply Narender Singh says: August 16, 2016 at 1:03 am You need to turn on the option or the bootloader unlock commands will not be processed. Reply Akhil G says: August 17, 2016 at 9:07 am Yes, everything is same for all Xiaomi devices. You have to wait at least 1 week for the approval for unlocking. After that you can easily unlock your Mi Max. That OEM Unlock option must be enabled. Reply Narender Singh says: August 16, 2016 at 1:02 am The procedure should essentially be the same. Apply for the unlock code and use it to unlock the bootloader ??ReplyConnect with UsYou can follow us on these social media networks and stay updated. facebooktwittergoogle-plusrssRecent Posts How to Disable News Feed & Notifications in Opera Apps for Android Pin Chats in WhatsApp to Keep Them at the Top of the List Check if Your Windows 10 PC is Updated to the Creators Update or Not The Difference Between Windows 10 S and Windows 10: Which is Better?
