WARNING: This method works 100% on GLOBAL phones, do not try to do it with an Indian version and of course if you lack minimum knowledge in command console environment and modification of the android system ... please do not continue reading.
Good morning, today we have to unlock and rotate this jewel of Chinese technology, so no more waiting ...
1- UNLOCK THE BOOTLOADER
Turn on your phone and:
Enable the Developer option on your phone by tapping the "MIUI version" box 7 times: Settings >> about >> MIUI version.
Go to Developer Options: "Settings >> Additional Settings >> Developer Options".
Enable "USB Debugging" and "OEM Unlock".
You must also add your Mi account to "Mi Unlock Status" (also found under "Developer Options").
Install these two controllers (adb controllers, MTK controllers) on your PC.
Turn off the phone and press (without releasing) the POWER button and the VOL - button until the fastboot menu comes out.
1.1 - Download and decompress the file "miflash.unlock.unlock.v3.5.910.35" and run "miflash_unlock.exe" (it's inside the folder "miflash.unlock.v3.5.910.35") and accept the conditions by clicking on the "AGREE" button:
Log in to your Mi account (if you don't have one, sign up HERE)
Connect the phone to the PC using its USB cable and click on "Unlock" (you will be asked to verify it 2 more times).
The program will warn you that you MUST wait 168 hours to unlock the bootloader.
When 168 hours have passed, follow the instructions from step 1-1 again to perform the unlocking process and... Note 8 Pro unlocked
2- INSTALL MENU RECOVERY TWRP
Download the file "ADB.rar" and unzip it on your hard disk (for example in C:\ADB )
Download to your PC the file "twrp.img"
(it's LR Team v3.3.1-0924, so, guaranteed success)
Put the file "twrp.img" into the ADB folder that you have in C:\ (as I wrote before)
Turn off the phone and once it is turned off press (without releasing) the POWER button and the VOL- button until the fastboot menu comes out.
Open a CMD command console (in administrator mode) in C:/ADB (if you don't know how to do it, watch the video)
Once you have the CMD console open... type this (pressing ENTER after typing each line):
adb devices fastboot devices fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
In a few seconds the TWRP recovery menu will be installed on your phone... remove the cable and press and hold the POWER and VOL+ buttons until the phone is turned off.
Let's enter the TWRP recovery menu like this:
Turn off the phone
Press the POWER and VOL+ button until the phone vibrates and "Redmi" letters appears and ...release the POWER button ONLY.
(hold for 10 seconds and you will enter the TWRP recovery menu)
Once we have entered the TWRP recovery menu:
Slide to unlock...
Click on "Advanced File Manager"
Go to: "System_root System" and delete "recovery-from-boot.p".
(if you don't find that file... better!)
Go back and click on "Close AVB2.0" and slide to apply.
Go back and select "Install Root"
In this step magisk 19.4 will be installed automatically. (you can upgrade to version 20.2 using the APK Magisk Manager in Direct Install mode when you start Android)
Restart your phone and congratulations... your phone is rooted
Now you can now enjoy an endless number of options that before you could'n on your phone, as well as modify files MIUI system or change the ROM to the official (and sadly removed from official xiaomi.eu servers) xiaomi.eu: "xiaomi.eu_multi_HMNote8Pro_V126.96.36.199.PGGCNXM_v11-9" which incorporates call recording and many other advantages.
To reactivate NFC payments:
1- Copy to the internal memory the file "GPay.SQLite.Fix.v1.9.zip" and install it through the Recovery TWRP Menu and restart when installed.
2- Go to Magisk Manager... Download and search and install: "SQL Lite for ARM aarch64 decices" ...restart.
3- Open Google Pay and add your card
4- Reboot the mobile so that the changes are adjusted and you already have payments by NFC
If you get the Recovery TWRP menu in Chinese:
With these indications you will see it in English...
Slide your finger to enter the Recovery TWRP menu...
click on "Settings"...
Click on the "world" icon...
And click to save the settings on this button:
