Xiaomi M 9 / Mi 9 SE: guide to unlocking bootloaders, TWRP flashes and ROOT permissions

Unblocking the bootloader

This is a really important aspect for an Xiaomi smartphone and, that could definitely come in handy in the life of the device. The operation, unfortunately, although it is immediate in practice, provides for a wait of 360 hours (on average). However it is good to equip yourself with a PC Windows with driver ADB e fastboot, as well as a USB cable for connecting the smartphone to the PC, which must have at least the 75% remaining charge. I invite you to click on the link below where you will find the detailed guide on unlocking the bootloader on Xiaomi terminals.

IMPORTANT

Xiaomi has imposed new safety-related directives, linked to modding. So it is recommended to do not install MIUI versions prior to the one already installed, due to the Anti-Rollback mechanism that could permanently block your smartphone.

It seems obvious to say, but the first step is to download the TWRP recovery for your Xiaomi Mi 9 or Mi 9 SE. You can search online or directly from the links below. Once you have downloaded the TWRP custom recovery, move it to the ADB certella on your PC.
