  1. Does this work with the global version of the xiaomi redmi note 5?

    I have tried a lot of ways to unlock the bootloader but all seems to be made for the indian version of the note 5 (the redmi note 5 pro)

  2. Sir not working. I am in 9.5.13. redmi note 5 pro. After full process successfully done when i check by manual camera comparability all are red.

  3. I followed each command exactly the same way you did in your video but, camera2api has not been enabled in my Redmi 5. I am not getting any error.It asks for a password on the launch of twrp screen. I entered my lock screen password but it says failed then, i cancel the password screen and twrp screen opens normally.
    I am using the Right twrp file and bootloader is also unlocked. please write a solution.

  4. My phone :
    Redmi note 5 China
    MIUI 9
    Android version Oreo

    I follow the step and get failed when tried to boot twrp.img, and found notif on my Phone “the system has been destroyed..”

  5. Rohan tive este problemas sofri, mas a solução é bem simples. Basta ir em mount e ativar a opção do menu em baixo ‘enable mtp’ algo parecido com isso.
