Dear Owners of Redmi Note 3 (SnapDragon) !
By results of my experience of the positive unlocking of two phones, I propose for you the full instruction for unlock of bootloader and flashing of custom recovery (twrp-3.0.2-1-kenzo.img). This Instruction was compiled from information in Internet. You can download Instruction and all required files by links:

Instruction (pdf file):
https://mega.nz/#!HAtkHKqA!Fmtgx24zvPH8mQ1EMwlr5GC3dO6iSBE6canBdvJhJPc

Files for unlocking (zip archive, 1.27 Gb):
https://mega.nz/#!fZVyACxD!4TEa-fpw0usemj-wwvIY2vYw85dHrYZYgmkwaBTo7wY


It's working! But:
"DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. I'm not responsible For warranty Void or Bricks Phones."

It's no official method. Official method is the request to Xiaomi. I used this method by using Win 7 for two phones which were on MIUI 7.1.7.0 Global . And method should be used on only 64-bit PC. There are a lot of problem due to improperly installed drivers on PC or/and due to mistakes in flashing process (not following of instructions). For unbrick I propose to try some methods from Internet (MIUI forum and other). If result will be absent then only test points will help you.

I unbrick with fastboot with: "fastboot oem unlock-go" :eek:

Yep that what happened to me when I incorrectly flashed it.

I revived it using this method:

It's actually pretty easy than it looks.

Thank you a lot for this info.

The guy on Miui forums forgot a crucial part on his instructions and it was to enable OEM unlock. I failed twice when doing his tutorial and even hard bricked my phone. Lucky me I had the guts to test point it out from there.

With your instructions I finally did it and can remove this crappy, horrible iOS ripoff that is MIUI.

Also I'll start to give some kernel love to this phone very shortly.

Regards.

Me too :(
Any help?

Now I can´t even get to recovery or EDL screens. I only got Mi Logo bootloop
I can get fastboot access holding down Vol "-" + Power button (after holding the two buttons two times!. The first one I have a fastboot screen and inmediatly bootlop. The second time always work)

I also tried the "oem unclock-go":
d:\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>fastboot oem unlock-go
...
FAILED (remote: Token verification failed, reboot the device)
finished. total time: 0.009s
