I don't want to go thru the process of getting Xiaomi's approval to unlock my phone. :p

I was wondering the same as I am considering buying a Mi A1....I love MIUI and would like it on the A1...but then why not just buy a Mi 5X ...I also wonder does the A1 use MiCloud and Mi Account info ? Obviously the bootloader is locked....My concern is the A1 being a strictly Google phone how does Xiaomi play into it ? ....

P.S. How do you like the A1 ? Can you provide some input please?

Pretty sure you can just download MiUI?

You cannot install Miui on the A1 at all because the A1 has a different partition table to a standard Phone.
You can install the A1 Android rom on the Mi 5X but you need to have an unlocked Bootloader because the A1 rom that you can install is a custom rom Not official.
To install Xiaomi.eu Multi Language rom which is also a custom rom you also need to unlock the bootloader.

Currently unlocking the Bootloader on the Mi 5X and the Redmi Note 5A is suspended so current you cannot install custom roms on these 2 phones.

As I wrote above do you have any info as to how Xiaomi Mi Cloud....Mi Accounts...Mi Mover...etc work or don't work on the A1...I have a Mi4C I will need to move the data from that phone to the new A1 via Mi Mover if possible...any ideas ? I am stuck between Mi5x and A1...I love MIUI, but a 100% google phone is also inticing... no hurry I wont be buying a new phone until I go to the USA later this year....thanks....

You will be able to unlock your device but unlocking is still not available currently. There is a holiday period happening in China at the moment so I would not expect to be unlock your device for at least 2 more weeks.

You can now unlock devices with the genuine bootloader (tiffany, Tissot) but there is now a built in delay so once you apply it can take up to 3 weeks to actually get the unlock permission.
