Fix Redmi 6 Pro Bootloop Error on Locked Bootloader

There are many reasons causing a bootloop problem on an Android phone. This trick shows you exactly how to unbrick Redmi 6 Pro bootloop error without having to unlock the 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.

However, most of Mi Fans do not attempt to unlock it or at least apply for the official permission from Xiaomi website. On the other hand, no one can predict when bad things happen.

Bootloop can occur because of third-party apps installation that contain malware or simply silly-flashing tweaks or mods that should not be flashed on a phone with locked bootloader.

This tutorial helps you in the scenario of bootloop error on Redmi 6 Pro while you did not unlock its bootloader yet. Nevertheless, the same steps are also applicable on Redmi 6 Pro with unlocked bootloader.

Moreover, users of other Xiaomi devices can also make use of this guide. Simply use the appropriate MIUI Recovery ROM file.

Redmi 6 Pro (codename Sakura) sports similar hardware as Redmi 5 Plus / Redmi Note 5 India. The dual rear camera and notched display mark the differences. The device boasts Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC with octa-core 14nm processor .

      4. Metode yg sering di gunakan jika bootloader terkunci adalah testpoint, lebih enak lagi kalau anda mempunyai akun author …

        1. Untuk yg gagal booting karena update software ke miui 10 baik lewat ota maupun manual mesti di flash melalu edl mode dengan akun mi yang sudah di authorized pihak xiaomi karena ada anti rollback versi 4 yang tertanam di hp (include miui 10 package)
          Semoga membantu

        But today when i checked my phone, it was completely dead and there was no battery in it. i tried charging it and booted the phone and it booted in normal mode and it was working fine excpet volume up button was not working and i could see some small issues with the UI but it was working fine .

        so I charged it to 100 % and tried to reboot to fix the volume buttom issue. But it has again stuck into the bootloop issue .

        Please suggest how to fix this. Due to lockdown i am not able to reach any xiamoi service centre
