So Xiaomi has started implementing a new policy whereby you need to wait 1440 hours before unlocking your bootloader. That translates to a massive 2 months. This is just ridiculous.
Many people with Poco F1 have reported this issue. Some people tried a different version of Mi unlock tool and their time was halved to 720 hours(1 month) but even that is ridiculous. I don't recommend this because spamming mi servers may lead to further problems.
How has your experience been with the bootloader unlock process. How many hours is the waiting period? If someone discovers any un official method, do post that as well.
If you want to help the community, please post these info on SUCCESSFUL bootloader unlock.

There was a lot of furore over this issue. A few tech websites published this issue, reddit roasted them over it and Twitter users also kept asking questions from Jai Mani and Manu Kumar Jain.
They listened. You should be able to unlock Poco F1 in 3 days now. But other Xiaomi phones may face upto 2 months waiting time and thats pathetic.
