How To Unlock Mi 10 Pro Bootloader Officially

Xiaomi released another marvellous flagship, MII 10 Pro, with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset. You can officially Unlock the MI 10 Pro bootloader with the help of a computer and the few prerequisites mentioned in this article.

The smartphone runs on the native home-grown MIUI 12 operating system based on the latest Android 10. Xiaomi has done an excellent job designing this device and putting every effort into making it successful in this competitive market. MI 10 Pro is Xiaomi’s first flagship smartphone that is 5G enabled.

The Xiaomi MI 10 Pro is powerful enough to run games at high graphics, and it won’t lag even if you play for 2-3 hours continuously. While it gets most of the work done quickly, multi-tasking is also smooth on the device.

However, many users do not like the native MIUI user interface and want to put their hands on custom ROMs to unleash the real power of the Snapdragon 865 chipset. For installing a custom ROM on a Xiaomi, the device requires two things:

An unlocked bootloader.

A custom recovery.

What is Bootloader?

A bootloader is a program that acts as a liaison between the hardware and the software required to power up the device. Most manufacturers keep it locked and require special permission to unlock it. They keep it locked for certain factors, such as not allowing the installation of any operating system other than the one they have optimized for the device. Some other factors include security, stability, and the device’s performance.
