Dear Redmi Note 7 user,

I'm not responsible if anything happens to your device. If you execute these AiO procedures properly then you shouldn't face any problems.

Before you proceed please back up all your important data and make sure that your phone battery is charged >80%!

A. Prerequisites:

1. Disable driver signature enforcement in Windows

If your computer doesn’t recognize Xiaomi drivers then please disable driver signature enforcement. How to do this please read here: http://en.miui.com/thread-237673-1-1.html

2. Install ADB and Fastboot tools with drivers on Windows

How to do this please read here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979

Restart your computer.

3. Enable "OEM unlocking" and "USB debugging" in your device

a. Enable Developer Options in: Settings/About Phone/MIUI version. Click on MIUI version seven times
b. Now go to: Settings/Additional Settings/Developer Options and check "OEM unlocking" and "USB debugging"

4. Check if your bootloader is locked

a. After successful installation of "ADB and Fastboot" enter the fastboot mode by holding together "Volume Down + Power" and connect your device to your computer via USB cable (best would be the original cable).
b. Go to the folder where you have put the "ADB and Fastboot" and open a command window inside that folder. To do that hold together "Shift + Right Click" on any empty white space inside the folder and then select "Open PowerShell Window Here" or "Open Command Window Here"
c. Enter the terminal command in command line: >>fastboot devices<<

If you don't see your device it means that the drivers weren't installed properly or the device wasn't connected properly. If this happens please reinstall your drivers from Point A. 2. or try these drivers here:

http://xiaomiadvices.com/download-xiaomi-usb-drivers/

d. If you see your device then enter the terminal command in command line: >>fastboot oem device-info<<

If your bootloader is locked, you'll get the following status (or something similar):

…………………………………………………………………….
(bootloader) Device tampered: false
(bootloader) Device unlocked: false
(bootloader) Device critical unlocked: false
(bootloader) Charger screen enabled: false
(bootloader) Display panel:
OKAY [ 0.058s]
finished. total time: 0.063s
………………………………………………………………………

If your bootloader is unlocked, you'll get following status (or something similar):

…………………………………………………………………….
(bootloader) Device tampered: false
(bootloader) Device unlocked: true
(bootloader) Device critical unlocked: true
(bootloader) Charger screen enabled: false
(bootloader) Display panel:
OKAY [ 0.053s]
finished. total time: 0.055s
………………………………………………………………………

5. Request Permission from Xiaomi to Unlock the Bootloader

a. Create a Mi Account: https://global.account.xiaomi.com/pass/register
b. Sign to Xiaomi and apply for unlocking https://en.miui.com/unlock/

6. Connect your Mi Account to your Device

Go to: Settings/Additional Settings/Developer Options/Mi Unlock status and check "Add account and device"

B: Unlock the Bootloader

Unlocking the bootloader will erase all your data! So please back up your data before you unlock the bootloader!

1. You must enable "OEM unlocking" and "USB debugging" as per point A. 3.
2. You must connect your Mi Account with your device as per point A. 6.
3. Download Mi Unlock Tool here: https://en.miui.com/unlock/
4. Enter the fastboot mode by holding together "Volume Down + Power" and connect your device to your computer via USB cable (best would be the original cable)

6. Enter your eMail and your password of your Mi Account
7. Connect you device to your computer and start the unlock procedure
8. Follow the unlock tool instructions until the unlock procedure is finished
9. Reboot your device

If you get the message, that the unlocking can be done after 72h or 360h or 720h etc., then you have to wait for that time to pass.

C: Install the TWRP Recovery

a. Your bootloader must be unlocked
b. The official twrp can be downloaded here: https://twrp.me/xiaomi/xiaomiredminote7.html. However the official twrp for Redmi Note 7 is not yet available. For the time being please download the latest unofficial "twrp-x.x.x.img" from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/re...overy-unofficial-twrp-touch-recovery-t3921637 and put it into a dedicated folder in your computer and rename it to "twrp".
c. Go to the folder where you have put the twrp-file. Now open a command window inside that folder. To do that hold together "Shift + Right click" on any empty white space inside the folder and then select "Open PowerShell Window Here" or "Open Command Window Here"
d. Enter fastboot mode by holding together "Volume Down + Power" and connect your device to your computer
e. Enter the terminal command in command line: >>fastboot flash recovery twrp.img<<. Attention: Do not restart your device otherwise Xiaomi's original recovery might overwrite the custom recovery twrp!
f. Boot your device into recovery (3 possible methods)
+ by entering terminal command in command line: >>fastboot boot twrp.img<<, or
+ by holding together "Volume Up + Power" until you see the MI logo, release "Power" button but keep pressing "Volume Up" until you see the recovery, or

3. If the rom doesn’t contain Google Apps then download Google Apps ARM64, Mini, Pico, Nano etc. from here www.opengapps.org and put them into device's internal memory or computer or on-the-go memory stick or micro sd-card.
4. Enter recovery mode:
+ by holding together "Volume Up + Power" until you see the MI logo, release "Power" button but keep pressing "Volume Up" until you see the recovery, or
+ by holding together "Volume Up + Volume Down + Power" until you see recovery

You know you can probably root without recovery using Magisk Manager and fastboot. You'll just need the original boot image which you should be able to extract from Xiaomi's firmware downloads.

any confirmation how many hours to unlock this device (after 72h or 360h or 720h) ?

Unfortunatelly the waiting time varies from person to person and also which smarphone model we are talking about. Until now the longest time I waited to unlock a bootloader was 72h. In Xiaomi forums people are reporting that they are waiting btw. 72h - 720h, sometimes even more than 1000h. :rolleyes:

I register my mi account by a google voice number,would it make the unlock process faster?OR perhaps I even could unlock my redmi note 7?

How would you flash the patched boot.img with a locked bootloader?

It shows this and blocks you from proceeding:

I've heard that Xiaomi's phone bought from mainland China can't unlock bootloader and flash global rom. Really?

That's completely untrue. I do tutorials for these devices on my website Android Explained and have bought the latest ones from the Mi Global seller account on AliExpress.
All have been completely sealed devices, shipped a day or two after their Chinese launch, and once you can unlock the bootloader (you do have to wait a certain period of time), then you can flash the global fastboot ROM with either Mi Flash, or just using the flash_all.bat file

the person you quoted said 'without recovery'. . .not 'with a locked bootloader'

You'll still need to unlock the bootloader, but once you do then you can patch the boot.img file for the device with Magisk and then load it onto the phone (instead of installing TWRP and then flashing Magisk) to gain root access

Yep, as the person above said, I said you could do it without recovery, not without unlocking the bootloader.

That sounds interesting - so - please state if I'm correct:
Once Redmi Note 7 Global version is out, I could install the official Global ROM and this one would work and have OTA upgrades in future on my Chinese Redmi Note 7?

Thank you in advance.

Global rom for Redmi Note 7 is not available yet, and thus I can't test it myself yet, but judging by all other Xiaomi Smartphones I had until now (Mi 5, Mi 6, Mix 2s, Redmi Note 4, Redmi Note 5 etc.) I was always able to flash the global rom on my Chinese version of these smartphones. Of course the bootloader will have to be unlocked. I'm quite sure that flashing the global rom on Chinese version of Redmi Note 7 will be possible too!

EDIT 1:

Does OTA work on that ROM? And How about Android development on Chinese versions compare to Global versions? Can you flash global's ROM on Chinese version?
Thanks

Yes, OTA will work! Android development on Chinese versions compared to Global version is a prerogative of developers. They decide which version of MIUI (Chinese or Global) they take as basis for their further development.
