It is dependant on device, not account. Otherwise vendors could just use 1 account to flash a malicious OS on every device they sell.

I am in the same boat. We have no choice but to wait unfortunately.

Redmi Note 9 Pro
I have tried all the methods, not binding, binding , using 2 accounts everything done. all failed to unlock!
then i thought ti start from scratch . resetted the phone, created a new Mi id using only email. then (not binded till now) developer option - ebale oem unlock, enabled ubd debug, and usb debug security. then tried again with MI unlock latest version, with this newly created mi id. BUT EROOR - COULDN'T UNLOCK at 99% .. i am not even getting a timer like 360 hours or anything/..

what i will do!

If you are using a pc with Win10 try to unlock in another one with Win7. That solved the 99% issue for me.

    UPDATE !!! : It seems that Xiaomi has patched the bug that allowed to easily unlock the Redmi Note 5 bootloader. Consequence, no more unofficial solution works to unlock the bootloader. We have to wait officially 15 days to unlock it.

    Hi all,

    I created this thread to provide a solution to all the owners of the Redmi Note 5 Global Version because I noticed that many of them could not unlock their bootloader.

    This solution worked for me on the first try. You must have a Mi account beforehand.

    Let's begin :

    Create Mi Account registration with E-mail :

    1- Visit https://account.xiaomi.com/pass/register
    2- Select the country, enter your e-mail, date of birth and optionally subscribe to a newsletter.
    3- Press “Create Mi Account”.
    4- The new window will show up, where you need to enter a password.
    5- Now check the e-mail you’ve entered, you should receive a confirmation letter.
    6- Activate your account by clicking the activation link.

    I used this Mi Unlock Tool version : https://www27.zippyshare.com/v/XbiIkf2j/file.html

    Here are the steps I did (thanks to https://www.movilesdualsim.com/tema...dmi-note-5-conviene-leer-el-mensaje-1.190483/) :

    1.- Enter your Mi account in Settings> Account> My Account (Warning !! Do not put your Mi account in Development Options).

    2.- Go to Settings> About the Phone and press repeatedly on "MIUI Version" until a prompt appears stating that "Now the developer options are activated!"

    3.- Go to Settings> System and Device> Additional> Options for Developers and activate the options "Unlock OEM" (you must activate it by clicking on "Unlock OEM", not on the switch, then accept the message) and, optionally, "USB Debugging".

    4.- Turn off the phone.

    5.- Execute as Administrator "My Flash Unlock" by right-clicking on the file "My Unlock.exe" and choosing the option "Open as administrator" from the drop-down menu. Then enter your Mi account.

    6.- Press Power button and the Volume Down button same time until you see "Fastboot" screen then connect the phone to the computer.

    7.- Wait for "My Flash Unlock" to recognize the phone and press "Unlock". Confirm and wait. You will see a percentage that goes up to 100%.

    8.- Congratulations !! Your bootloader is now unlocked ! Enjoy ! ;)

    Good luck everyone :fingers-crossed:

    EDIT 1 : It seems that Xiaomi fixed this trick.
    Try now with Mi Unlock Tool v2.3.803.10 version and see if it works again : https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=889764386195926335

    I made it, sir you are awesome!!! So as it turned out using the older MiFlash v2.x is the key.

    Happy for you ;)

    Do we need to force disable signatures on Windows as spotted in all-in-one thread ?

    For me, I did not need to do that. I am on windows 10 64 bits...
