Hi everyone, I forgot my mi account details and had to bypass my phone after it locked, had to downgrade to MIUI 12.0.3 and I unlocked the bootloader before, it's still unlocked.

Can I install a custom ROM without issues now?

So you want Miui or custom rom?
1/Miui:
-Chose line 2 and connect wifi then back chose line 1 to use password
-If you forget password, use forget and take new password by phone number or email idk.
2/Custom ROM:
-You can flash one with no issues if you do right.

Hi guys, I gave my engineer my Redmi note 8 pro to upgrade for me and after the upgrade, the phone locked mi account, I didn't have the log in details... He bypassed the mi account and said I shouldn't update, if I do, the mi account will lock again

The bootloader is unlocked, can I install Lineage os custom ROM without having account issues?

That lock only show up if you use Miui. Other custom roms that will not show up. Many device had that lock and they start to use custom roms.
