Unlock Bootloader on Redmi Note 9 Pro and get root access on your Smartphone
The bootloader is a program that starts whenever a device is powered on to activate the right operating system. It is therefore not only a trait reserved for Android but also one that can find out all devices with an operating, be it a smartphone, a tablet, a PC, etc. It may occur that a device, a computer for example, maybe equipped with two different operating systems (dual boot). In this case, either one or the other bootloader starts, depending on the user’s preference or what has been pre-programmed to happen automatically.

Before starting you must follow the below-given steps:
- Make sure you have taken a complete backup of your phone.
- Install the working USB drivers for your device on your PC.

Unlocking the bootloader you have to be patient as it takes more than 10 days sometimes for Xiaomi to give you permission to unlock your bootloader.
Create a Mi account if you don’t have one and log in to your account on your Note 9 Pro. Turn on sync and find my device in the Mi Cloud settings.
Go to settings and turn on Developer options by tapping on the MIUI Version 8 times in the About Phone section. Then go to Developer Options and turn on USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking. After that tap on Mi Unlock Status.
You will need to login to your Mi account, and then you will see a link there. Browse that link on your PC and log in using your Mi Account, and once you find your device, select it and click Unlock Now. Fill any details if asked.

STEP 5 –
Connect your device to the PC through a USB cable and open the Mi Unlock Tool. You will see some pop-ups that will warn you that all your data will be erased and all that. Don’t worry. Click on OK. You will see a progress bar that will successfully reach 100, and the tool will successfully unlock your bootloader.
If for some reason, the tool couldn’t complete the process, this means that Xiaomi has not yet provided your account the unlock permissions. Wait for a few days and try the whole process again, and it will work.
