This guide is exclusively for developers or those who are tech savvy. If you’re new to this, it’s best to stay away as this requires some technical knowledge.

Xiaomi recently launched their new HyperOS with some strict policies. One of them is that you can’t unlock the bootloader directly. You need to reach a specific level in the Xiaomi community among other things.

If you’ve reached Level 5 or you’re a Pro Bunny in the Xiaomi Community, you probably know how to unlock the bootloader on your device. But if you’ve just reached this level and don’t know how to use the bootloader safely, then this quick guide is for you.

Things to Keep in Mind Before Using the Bootloader

  • Make sure you have the latest version of the Global Xiaomi Community app.
  • Your Mi Account must be active for at least 30 days.
  • You need to be at least level 5 in the community.
  • You can only unlock 3 devices with a single account.

How to Unlock Bootloader in HyperOS

If your default region is Europe, you need to change it to Global to activate the bootloader features in the Mi community app. Here’s how:

  • Open the Community app on your device.
  • Tap on your Profile and choose the “Set up” option.

  • Finally, your account will support the new HyperOS bootloader.

This new policy allows a one-year time frame in which you are eligible for unlocking your HyperOS. However, as per the developer’s caution, you won’t get any new stable updates via OTA. You’ll need to manually install them using recovery ROM.

In addition, a few years back, the unlocking period was set to 168 hours but now it’s reduced to just 72 hours. That’s a big change.

I hope you’re ready to face all challenges before doing anything with your phone. You should know how to handle beta and developer ROMs which you’ll test on your device in the future. The team won’t be responsible for any kind of problem. So be aware, and avoid it if you’re not a techy person.
