The xiaomi devices with ARB: - Redmi Note 5, Mi 6X and Redmi 6 Pro.

Xiaomi.eu roms for WHYRED have the firmware removed, so as not to trigger it.

Don't know about the other two?

@ingbrzy have you removed firmware from them devices as well?

Xiaomi activates anti-rollback feature for Redmi 6 Pro and Mi 6X latest MIUI 10 versions

It was reported recently that Xiaomi had introduced the anti-rollback feature to Redmi 6 Pro models running MIUI 10 China Development ROM version 8.7.30 as well as models running the Stable ROM version 9.6.16 and above. Xiaomi has now announced the anti-rollback feature will now apply to Mi 6X models running MIUI 10 China Development ROM version 8.8.6 as well as models running the Stable ROM version 9.6.4.0 and above. The anti-rollback feature means users will no longer be able to downgrade their MIUI versions to older versions after the update.

Whyred was apparently a test run, now Xiaomi is closing up like Huawei recently did, or Apple.

5000 applications for unbricking redmi note 5 is apparently so few (compared to how many millions sold in just India?) that it's deemed profitable throwing the troublesome flashing addicts under the buss.

[XDA] Android Oreo’s rollback protection required on phones launching with Android Pie

More like xiaomi where testing it on us whyred users, for future requirements.

Why they badly implemented it is another question? It should be disabled or allowed to be disabled with bootloader unlocked.
Or why on Oreo builds and not just new devices with Pie.

The cynical answer is corporate profitability.

Most likely the flashing addicts are sum total mostly a nuisance and unprofitable to serve as customers - difficult guaranty questions, complaints, etc.
