  2. Sumit dId Mi 4i have locked bootloader or it is already installed please reply. When I use command ” fastboot oem device-info ” then device unlocked = false …This is the reason why is am asking you ..

  3. hi sumit, i’m running mi4i on MIUI global 8.1 rom
    executing adb reboot bootloader simply restarts the phone, instead of starting fastboot mode. additionally, fastboot devices does not give any output.
    tried manually entering in fastboot mode and executing flash command directly but the command window is stuck on waiting for device and the phone restarts.
    Please suggest a solution.
