hi all,

my rom is a vendor rom and i want to flash an official one.
i received permission for unlocking the mi mix and i downloaded miunlock app. i put the phone in fastboot mode but the mi-unlock is stuck at 50% saying after that caouldn't verify the phone.
i installed usb drivers and i disabled digital drivers security check in windows 10 but no effect.moreover, after 10 seconds the phone exits fastboot and starts only charging.
what else i can do?

First flash original rom (no need unlock), then boot device, log in to your mi account and register your device. After that you will be able to unlock it.

as far as I saw first step is to unlock the bootloader. i may be confused, but i requested to xiaomi to unlock the bootloader. they sent me approval by sms, i installed mi-unlock, i logged in my xiaomi account, i put the phone in fastboot mode but the app stucks at 50%. i did allover again but no succes. i may did smth wrong but i don't know what

You have to be on official rom to unlock. Flash official first.
Then follow the steps.

Start from part 3, you don't need an unlocked bootloader for that.

Part 3, boot original rom, login to mi account and register your device, then part 2.

Unlock (part 2) is optional if you want to stick with original rom.

That's quite common trying to update while on a Shop/Vendor ROM.

Your only solution is to use the guide Kostas_f provided you.

It doesn't matter as you are only using that ROM to unlock.

After unlocking you can install TWRP & flash the Xiaomi.eu ROM.

because vendor rom will never be updated. i dont want some specific rom, but something that will be improved in the future

Then flash the Xiaomi.eu ROM from here, it has Google Apps support, all Chinese bloatware removed & updates.

I unlocked mi5s plus with stable global. It was no need to flash chinese rom to unlick bootloader. Newer devices can be unlocked from any original rom. You must did mistake somewhere..
