Xiaomi Now Makes It Hard To Unlock Bootloader in HyperOS
In order to uphold a secure and stable user experience, the permission to unlock the bootloader will now be limited to specific users upon transitioning to Xiaomi HyperOS. It's essential to note that unlocking the bootloader may compromise device security and lead to potential data leaks.
The bootloader unlocking rules are outlined as follows:
- Regular users are strongly advised to maintain the default locked state of the bootloader and refrain from unlocking it.
- Enthusiasts seeking customization with a full awareness of associated risks can request unlocking permission through the Xiaomi Community. The application portal will soon be accessible on the App, and application rules will be based on the dedicated page.
- Previous operating systems, such as MIUI 14, still retain the unlocking capability. However, devices left unlocked will no longer receive Xiaomi HyperOS updates. Users desiring Xiaomi HyperOS updates should contact after-sales service.
The sequence of device upgrades to Xiaomi HyperOS follows the comprehensive product development process. We appreciate your patience as you wait for the device upgrade.
Xiaomi underscores that the progression of devices to Xiaomi HyperOS aligns with a thorough product development process. Users are earnestly requested to be patient and await the device upgrade. Xiaomi has officially disclosed that the update is scheduled for eight devices in Q1 2024, yet given Xiaomi's penchant for surprises, updates for more than eight devices may occur at any time.
As Xiaomi advances its operating system, these bootloader unlocking rules stand as evidence of the company's commitment to user security and satisfaction within the continually expanding Xiaomi ecosystem.
