Xiaomi isn’t closing down the bootloader unlocking portal

23 November 2018 0

There were rumors doing rounds which suggested that Xiaomi is closing down its portal which allows users to unlock the bootloader for its devices. Now the company has denied the rumors via a tweet from the official MIUI account and called it out as a fake news.

Somehow the fake news spread through social media sites like Reddit and Telegram which suggested that Xiaomi will stop providing bootloader unlocking facility from December 1st citing security concerns. However, Xiaomi clearly refuted the “Fake News”.


Allowing users to unlock bootloader helps the users to customize and modify applications as per their convenience. This also helps the developer community to build custom ROMS and port features from other ROMS or apps.

The company has though not been the most developer friendly and has had a history of delaying kernel source codes and even for the forced wait times to let users unlock bootloaders of their devices.
