After the launch of Redmi Note 5 Pro, many Android geeks are looking for the various methods to root it. But, before rooting your Android phone, the essential part is to unlock the bootloader of it. So, in this article, I am going to list the steps with which you can successfully unlock the Bootloader of Redmi Note 5 Pro.
Basically, the bootloader is a code which runs when we turn on our device. This code initializes some hardware and then loads the kernel and ramdisk, and gets the boot process going. So this process is known as Unlocking Bootloader.
Before starting the actual unlock operation you first have to consider the prerequisites list down below:
- Unlocking the Bootloader is considered as the complex process. For this, you need a computer or a notebook along with your phone and its USB cord.
- Take the full backup your phone, because this process may wipe your data.
- Make your Honor 9 Lite charge up to 70% to avoid any technical error.
- Download and Install ADB Fastboot on your PC.
Note: Operations like rooting, unlocking bootloader and flashing are not recommended by the company. Doing these may void the Warranty of your phone.
