VF is for Vodafone, so this is a rom customised for voda. I think you should download the EEA rom and the only difference you will notice will be missing Vodafone app.

As for unlocking bootloader just google it, all xiaomi phones are unlocked the same way.

@simika Do banking apps still work after rooting? How about Google Pay?

yes it is from vodafone UK, anyway so is it really safe to flash the EU equivalent on it? , as i am not too sure how to backup the original ROM yet (had the phone less than a week) and also i do not yet have a big enough microSD card to use to do such things when i do find out how to do so, as my Redmi Note 10 5G is the 128GB version and i believe getting at least a 256gb microSD will be best :)

My m3pro arrived with miui 12.0.5.0. The possible to dowload 12.0.8.0 was not accessable for my country. I changed region to Switzeland and ... 12.0.8.0 is dowloading and installing.

Nope is not working ..it tells me that my device might be rooted... I don't think I'll try now but I remember I saw a post where this issue was solved
You will need some changes ... in magisk .
1. Change magisk name.
2. Activate magisk hide and select google services, google play and bank applications.
3. Install (in magisk) safety net fix 1.1.1 .
Check safety net in magisk. If it will be green, all should work. Else you can only change fingerprint ...

I messed up and have to wait another week to unlock my phone. I'm so disappointed.

The unlock app couldn't see my phone even though it worked a week ago. I couldn't figure out why so I decided to repeat all the steps I took the first time, this included adding my phone to my MI account again, I forgot that this resets the unlock countdown!!! :(
It turned out that missing drivers were at fault, this was related to windows update that I had this week that went wrong. The unlock app can see my phone again but I have to wait another week. :(

I registered unlock and upgraded MIUI to 12.0.8. I run muiu unlock for be sure, the process is not reseted, but it saw the correct number of hours.
It should be true if you will not login again , the time will not be reseted.

J'ai foiré et je dois attendre encore une semaine pour déverrouiller mon téléphone. Je suis tellement déçu.

L'application de déverrouillage ne pouvait pas voir mon téléphone même s'il fonctionnait il y a une semaine. Je ne pouvais pas comprendre pourquoi alors j'ai décidé de répéter toutes les étapes que j'ai prises la première fois, cela incluait l'ajout de mon téléphone à mon compte MI, j'ai oublié que cela réinitialise le compte à rebours de déverrouillage !!!:(
Il s'est avéré que les pilotes manquants étaient en cause, cela était lié à la mise à jour de Windows que j'ai eu cette semaine qui s'est mal passée. L'application de déverrouillage peut à nouveau voir mon téléphone, mais je dois attendre encore une semaine.:(
Oops 😂

at least it another week for you, for me it says -

"Please unlock 360 hours later. And do not add your account in MIUI again, otherwise you will wait from scratch" 😨

    * So, basically, any 'Redmi Note 10 5G' ROM listed should work well with 'POCO M3 Pro 5G' device as well?
    * Is there a list somewhere with the differences between the different versions of the ROMs (Global vs EEA vs India vs China, etc)?
    * Will it be a problem to use OTA updates after rooting? I'd have to remove the root, update and then use the same method to re-install Magisk?
    1. Stock roms are different. (Poco uses own launcher). I do not now and will not check.
    2. China version has different set of blootware and often drivers, because china and not china versions could have differences in hardware.
    EEA will support all Europe languages, but not all Afican, the global can support Africa better.
    3. OTA should work ok, but after update the rooting has to be repeated.

    guys.. relax... don't rush!
    first of all when you see Dm-verity corrupt "bootloop" is not really bootloop..
    just press once the power button and your smartphone will boot.

    second to remove the dm-verity corruption you need to upload(fastboot) vbmeta. img is all written in first post

    hi thanks for your suggestion but when i searched playstore i found 2 that talked about business services and i guess you were talking about something to identify app services on the phone, any link plse ?:)

    also, can one still install TWRP after rooting with Magisk so one can do full system backups via TWRP? :unsure:
    Maybe , write the link to TWRP . Maybe after reading twrp description the answer will be possible to write.

    to those who have messed about with these phone more than i have - what happen when you go into 'Miui Recovery' (ie power button + volume up as you reboot) and on the main menu choose 'Wipe Data'

    - does it return the phone to factory setting (remove all user data and configs) but leave 'root' in place and therefore bootloader still unlocked?

    - will that resolve possible issues with selinux?
    :unsure:
    if i'm not sure that happened to me at begin !! Bootloader stays locked/unlocked this means WON't change is actual status (if was unlocked stays unlocked)
    root will be lost , all data will be wiped

    hey guys.. wonderful news.. been trying here and there and IT WORKS FINALLY i gained root of POCO m3 Pro 5G !
    i'll write in steps how it works and post all files i've been using

    DISCLAIMER as always.. " do it at your OWN risk , i won't be responsible if anything goes wrong, you might risk to brick your phone "

    that said :

    1 - unlock your bootloader .. it'll take 168 hours so the earlier the best
    if you don't know how to do it check XIAOMI bootloader unlock on xda

    2 - download your rom (https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/archive/miui/camellia/ get exactly the one you are on ) with this i mean YOU have to DOWNLOAD exactly the ROM you have in this moment installed on your smartphone, you can simply check your rom in settings!

    3 - from the zip file extract boot.img

    4 - get magisk ( i've used 22.1 and it worked.. you might try with the most recent but since it worked for me i suggest to use 22.1)
    now you need to patch original boot.img ( keep a copy of the original one )

    5 - copy the patched boot.img you got from magisk and copy it to your pc

    6 - VERY IMPORTANT get this "empty " vbmeta.img ( link at bottom of this post)

    7 - now reboot your Smartphone in fastboot , you can do it in 2 ways:
    adb reboot bootloader
    or
    turn off poco and then keep pressed VOLUM DOWN and POWER

    8 - fastboot commands:
    Code:
    fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

    (you should get this response)
    fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img Sending 'vbmeta_a' (4 KB) OKAY [ 0.016s] Writing 'vbmeta_a' OKAY [ 0.000s]

    now send patched boot.img ( rename it just like so )
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash boot boot.img Sending 'boot_a' (65536 KB) OKAY [ 1.524s] Writing 'boot_a' OKAY [ 0.224s]
    and finally :

    Code:
    fastboot reboot


    you will NOT get any

    Dm-VERITY corruption on boot

    you will get your POCO rooted as i show in the pictures!
    IF you have any questions ask.. i'm gonna upload PATCHED boot.img for MIUI Global EEA 12.0.8 stable ( so you get already a pacthed boot.img )
    i upload also ORIGINAL stock boot.img always from MIUI Global EEA 12.0.8 stable
    and i upload vbmeta.img empty !

    enjoy it !!!

    FILES : magisk_patched-22100_WInEw.img rename it to boot.img

    with one exception, in point 8 I used this command:
    fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    This is know issue. You have "lite" version of adb/fastboot. The version with bigger files will support all parameters.

    Another week passed and I was finally able to root my Redmi note 10 5g from UK Vodafone. First I flashed the EEA latest rom V12.0.8.0.RKSEUXM. Than I followed the tutorial from the first page, with one exception, in point 8 I used this command:
    fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    As the command provided was not recognized.
    And I used the newest Magisk v23

    Hello! Do You know how to fix "dm verity is corrupt"?
    The correct flashing vbmeta.img should fix this problem.
