Hi there,

Tried doing hard reset on Redmi4X. Did it before on Android phones, but this one threw me off. I get a message saying this devide is locked - and I don't remember Mi Account password.

So, how can I get round this?

Relatedly, I googled a bit, and alot of solutions seem to involve 'Mi Unlocking Tool.exe' - Mlware bytes flags this as malware - is it true? Is this safe?

Thanks for your help!

Ok,

any ideas?

Thanks,

Pete

But it's complicated if you do not remember anything.
