Hey guys, this is my first xiaomi device and i would like to know, after unlocking the bootloader, do i still get OTA updates from xiaomi like normal, and if i do, can i update like normal without any complications. I am on Mi 11 Global, due for unlock in 48 hours

That's a relief.

If i may, a related question:

When unlocking the bootloader with the unlock tool, will the phone be factory reset? Apps and settings gone?

I ask because I don't want to waste a whole week setting my new phone up just for it to be erased when the unlock is finally available next Wednesday.

Yes, everything gets wiped. However, you need to be using the phone in order to unlock it after the 7 day period. If not you'll get an error saying you need to use the phone more, and then you'll have to wait longer.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. That's annoying but I guess I can use the phone for certain basic things while I wait.
