Fix Redmi 6 Pro Bootloop Error on Locked Bootloader

Personally, I always unlock my MIUI phone bootloader within the first two week after purchase. Having a Xiaomi phone with unlocked bootloader is like having the whole device including its system. Without bootloader being unlocked is like having only a half of your phone. Trust me. What’s the point of having something while you cannot have full control over what you posses.
