Lucky ! My first account have trouble, after wait 580hours nothing....yup it is fixed by xiaomi ,have to wait 360hours to unlock and todays i have been succesfully unlocked it after waiting 15 bloody days!
I just wanna share that my whyred is finally unlocked, after waiting for 15days, well others have said that they need to wait for more than 360hrs but i've unlocked mine at exactly 360hrs & no less.. This was taken last 2 days, i'm now enjoying AEX. So to those who are eagerly waiting for 360hrs like i used to, just be patient and in time you will get rewarded. That's all
There's no other way around it. You have to wait 360h before you can unlock the bootloader. In the meantime, you can theme MIUI to your liking as it has a good theming engine.Is there an alternative method or something? I really don't want to wait the 360h 'cuz I hate the MIUI interface.

Yes, MIUI has a built-in theme engine. You can download aosp themes inside the theme store for free. There's an app called 'Themes' in the app drawer. You can also find it in the settings.For real? Theming engine? I've never been with MIUI before tbh. What can I do and how? btw, thanks for the amazing suggestion
MOD EDIT by @gregbradley
It appears this method has now been patched and no longer works. @yusoffb01, please PM me if you have any issues with this edit. At this point you have been inactive for 8 days.
Managed to unlock phone without waiting for 360 hours On miui rom 9.5.6 or earlier. The trick is to use 2 accounts.
Both accounts must have applied for unlock permissions.
Login first account on phone, Settings > Additional Settings > Developer Options > Mi Unlock Status. Tap on “Add Account” to bind to phone. Also enable OEM unlock option
Restart to fastboot (hold volume down + power button)
Using mi flash tool, login to first account and try to unlock, you will have 360h timer.
Restart phone, sign out of miui and login to second account, but DO NOT BIND PHONE. Then restart to fastboot
Login to second account on mi flash tool, then unlock will be successful without timer
Edit: if latest mi flash tool still gives you 360h on second account,
Edit: Looks like this method and using older unlock tool or older miui firmware does not work. Using old or new miui account doesnt work. You have to wait 2 weeks
Tried this method on on my China Mix2s, currently running MIUI 18.104.22.168. It did not work. Other suggestions are welcomed in unlocking the phone. Thx!
Hi, I applied for bootloader unlock. It asked me to wait 360hrs. But, my phone had some network issues so, I replaced it after using it for a day. Then, the next phone, I installed Miui 10 beta. And now it got unlocked at the first go from the same account. I'm happy not having to wait for 15 days !!!!
Use the old Mi Unlock version, 2.2.624.14. link here : https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=76668386&postcount=85
To make you use MIUI in that time. They sell these phones at ridiculous prices, almost at the cost of manufacturing. So if they sell you a phone for same amount of money it cost to make, and you get rid of MIUI as soon as you get phone, they have no profit from you at all. Business model is to get user used to MIUI and whole MI service bundle, trying to make money there.(Themes, messages, cloud services). Also if you get used to MIUI and its services, your next item(tv, phone, smartband, smartwatch, rise cooker or whatever) is also more likely to be made by xiaomi.yes, but if they managed to unlock bootloader with we have to wait 15 days that no makes sence, if a buyer want too unlock bootloader and the brand permit why the 15 days?? that is my point, the brand should have a form that explain the pros and cons, and allow immediately permit unlock. what the diference between immediately and after 15days? this is my point
