After waiting 360 hours I was able to unlock my Mi 8 with this tool on my Ubuntu! With official MiFlashUnlock tool I wasn't able to unlock this device on Windows 10. Thanks a lot!

I guess I have to wait, how long I do not know as this is not shown in either mode (command line or GUI).

After about 13 days - I only tried twice in between - the thing is now unlocked. I needed to run the tool on a 64-bit machine as the 32-bit fastboot crashed (with a message in the lines of "* buffer overflow detected *"), possibly due to the longish argument used in the unlocking procedure.

I also used 64-bit OS -> Ubuntu 18.04 x64. It would be nice to see amount hours instead of %d, however it's just a minor bug. This tool is the best choice for Linux, MacOS and event Windows 10 users.

Hey guys,

Although I've unlocked & rooted other Android's in the past, this is my first time with a Xiaomi device. I've tried running the tool, and appear to get the "Error meaning: After %d hours of trying to unlock the device" error. Am I right in thinking this is just a bug in terms of the hours displayed, and that I will just need to wait the 15 or so days before I can unlock the device? At what point does that 15 days begin?

Also, once unlocked, what is the best way to flash a ROM? ADB via Terminal?

Looking to flash the Global MIUI over the Chinese one I currrently have.

Thanks!

Why r u not using original miunlock tool for windows ?

Did u enable oem unlock, usb debugging?

Installed fastboot drivers
Use fastboot devices command to check if u r device connected to pc.

Did u bind ur account to miunlock status in developer option?
