Hello friends,
I went through the process of creating account and requesting unlocking, and got the standard waiting period, 168 (?) hours, which is long passed and my bootloader is still locked.
Can anyone please help me as to what might be the reason for this...I have not attempted any other method since being requested to wait for the stipulated time frame...merely waited patiently, but still it is locked.
Thank you for your help

Do nothing but the following.
1. Run Miunlock
2. Connect your phone to your computer in quick start mode.
3. unlock the bootloader.

All data will be deleted.

Hello,
It's not just waiting for whatever number of hours. You need to run the official mi unlock tool to unlock your phone after the waiting period. Use you pc as directed by other members.

Update. having checked settings I found out that I had an outdated version of the unlocker.
Installed new version and hurray now unlocked.
Once again, thank you very much for your prompt reply and concise help.
Have a great day gogocar62.
