Question: Unlocking while firmware updates?

when unlocking the bootloader and there is a waiting period of 1-2 weeks but in the meanwhile the phone wants to update it's firmware, what to do?

- is the unlock process interrupted when the phone updates itself to the next miui version?
- or is it actually necessary to update to the new version to successfully finish the unlocking process? (f.i. the "unlock" process started with the old miui version but ends with a new miui version)

the community blog is not clear about that, anyone got experience with that?

EDIT: nevermind, already done. for those who want to know nevertheless: don't update the firmware while on a waiting period to unlock, just stick to the version you started unlocking the phone, it works. though, it might work with updating too I've not tested it.
