How to upgrade to Andoid 7.0:
Install latest stable 5.1.1 before updating to Android 7.0.
Select zip in Updater - menu - select zip
Unlock your bootloader again on MiNotePRO
(check your bootloader status by command "fastboot oem device-info")
Install TWRP for 7.0 via fastboot "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" "fastboot boot twrp.img"
In case of issues, wipe /data in TWRP

I try update Mi note pro to stable version Miui 9.1 from last stable versión of miui 8. I install this with tprw and now the phone is block in boot with MI logo.

I try reflash this version with mi flash in fast boot mode but the bar is complete and the elapse time is over 1400seconds and dont finish!

this is the only thing you do ? so let me understand. you upgraded to miui v9 , got the phone stuck on mi logo after boot, use the mi unlock tool at fastboot mode , unlock bootloader , and after that reboot and phone got back to life with miui v9 ?

thank you very much, works like a charm. @sica1 , you should try this to. only unlock bootloader again using mi unlock tool and thats it, phone will reboot to miui v9.
