Mi Account Authorization Tips: Check and Apply for it!

Mi Account Authorization Tips: Check and Apply for it! 1

This article shows you exactly how to check for the status of your Mi Account Authorization directly on your computer. The authorization is crucial to guarantee the success of a flashing process. The regular fastboot flashing method may not require this. However, a bricked device as an impact of Anti-rollback Protection or a broken device with a locked bootloader will need this authorization stage for sure.

We have heard something about the locked bootloader, EDL mode being disabled, and the Anti-rollback Protection. All of those are measures taken by Xiaomi Developers Team to secure devices produced.

The MIUI Bootloader is locked to prevent unauthorized flashing. Users need to request for the bootloader unlock permission. Once obtained, users can flash custom recoveries, custom ROMs, and of course, can flash Magisk to obtain root access. Flashing the official MIUI ROM through Fastboot also requires an unlocked bootloader due to the nature that it resets everything on the phone.

Emergency Download Mode (EDL) is another thing. EDL is basically an alternative mode which can be used to flash MIUI Fastboot ROM. In fact, users do not need the “bootloader unlock” permission to flash MIUI ROM through this mode. Hence, Xiaomi has disabled this special mode on recent devices.

With EDL Mode being disabled does not mean the checkpoint of “bootloader unlock” permission cannot be bypassed. Users can achieve this mode through another thing called the “Test-point Method“. It is basically to enter EDL Mode through literally hard resetting the phone. It requires users to open and disassemble the back cover of their phones.

The last one is the Anti-rollback Protection. It is basically what its name suggests. This protection prevents users to downgrade the currently-running MIUI version to an older version.

About the Mi Account Authorization

Now, what is Mi Account Authorization? It is another security measure put by Xiaomi Developers Team to add another layer of protection. This protection prevents anyone to flash MIUI ROM on a device through the Download Mode (EDL) or Test-Point method. Flashing through EDL Mode can bypass a locked bootloader protection.

Because users can still bypass “bootloader unlock” permission to flash an MIUI ROM through the Test-point mode, that is why they put such authorization in place.

Shortly, only users having authorized Mi account are allowed to flash through EDL/Test-point Mode. It means not anyone with Mi account is granted with this permission despite they have permission to unlock the bootloader. Why? Because flashing through this mode does not need the unlocked bootloader.

How to fix the Unauthorized Xiaomi Account error? You will need to ask for Xiaomi to authorize your Mi account, obviously.

How to apply for Mi Account Authorization?

First, you can try by clicking the “Apply Bind” option on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Well, there must be a reason why this option exists.

Mi Account Authorization Tips: Check and Apply for it! 10

Will it work? Will your account be granted as an authorized one? Even the Supermoderator of MIUI community cannot confirm it.

There is a workaround by registering your account through MIUI Russia. Go to this link. Post your Mi ID there to request for authorization. Google Translate will come in handy for this task unless you can read Russian. Now simply wait for the moderator to see your request and grant it with the proper authorization. Will it work? Just keep on trying.

  38. Hello,
    I have a Redmi Note 9S global (curtana) purchased this past summer. I recently attempted to upgrade ROM to a newer stable release for this phone. Unfortunately it is now hard bricked, no fast boot or recovery. It does appear to connect with the computer in EDL mode, but MiFlash will not allow me to transfer a new ROM to the phone, citing authorization failure. I sent email to Xiaomi support but they refuse to grant authorization so that I can repair my phone. Can you help? Are you able to authorize account 6337241559 ? Thank you very much for any help.
    Best regards.

  39. For any Xiaomi managers who read this:

    I am totally pissed off. My redmi Note 9S global went belly up about ten days ago when I tried to upgrade the ROM to a newer version. My nearly new phone is now a hard brick. My contacts with Xiaomi support to get authorization to load a stock ROM amount to “sorry, chump. Suck it.”

    Well, I have some heart surgery coming up in less than a week and I need my phone as my means of contact with the outside world. I need access to load another ROM in the next couple of days or I’ll have to say screw Xiaomi and get another phone from somebody else. And I won’t make it pretty.

    Get it, Xiaomi? You really need to get some customer focus on this and fix your attitude. And, grant me authorization to fix my own problem. Account 6337241559.

    Hoping for amicable settlement.
