I just received my Mi5s and like others it comes with 8.0.3.0 pre-installed
after hours of stress, I almost give up and want to make a DF cable... but I finally found the light

the trick is simple, just manual update to Global Stable to 8.2.1.0
grab the zip file, put it on your phone and update it via phone updater app.

now you will have Mi Unlock Status on Developer Settings, just go there and click the add button

finally run the unlock tool, and viola ...

is this really working? it's a good news! i tried different ways to unlock my BL and posting comments in different threads but still no use. Maybe this would help. Thank you for creating this guide. God bless!

PS. it says "Coudn't verify update package". Im using updater app. How did you flash yours?

What is your current version?
You can't update with updater app if your ROM is unofficial ROM like 8.0.10.0

No... The zip is from xiaomi. Its official 8.2.1.0 without any modification.

You should already add your mi account before you press the add button

Should be smooth upgrade from 8.0.3.0 to 8.2.1.0
Just tap the updater app, 3 dots, choose update package, then choose the downloaded zip.

Check the zip, it might corrupted...

Should I upgrade to 8.2 using ota first before I flash the zip? Because i tried everything you've said but always error. I'm now using 8.2 stable. Just updated earlier from the ota

Updating to 8.2 is to get the "mi unlock status" option in developer settings, if yours is already 8.2 then you should have it.
