If you don’t see your device it means that the drivers weren’t installed properly or the device wasn’t connected properly. If this happens please reinstall your drivers from Point A. 2. or try these drivers here:

5. Request Permission from Xiaomi to Unlock the Bootloader

a. Create a Mi Account: https://global.account.xiaomi.com/pass/register
b. Sign to Xiaomi and apply for unlocking http://en.miui.com/unlock

You have to give a reason for requesting to unlock the bootloader. I gave following reason on my request:

“I purchased my Xiomi Redmi Note 5 from the vendor xxx and they have installed a fake (custom) rom. I want to install an original rom from Xiaomi. So please approve my request to unlock the bootloader.”

c. Wait for permission. I have 5 different accounts approved by Xiaomi and the longest I had to wait for the approval of each account was 1 day. Most of the users are reporting the same, however very few users are reporting a waiting time of up to 10 days . If your request is approved then you should receive a message with following content:

“You’ve been granted the permission to unlock your device (Mi Account xxxx). Donload Mi Unlock Tool At http://en.miui.com/unlock”

6. Connect your Mi Account to your Device 

Go to: Settings/Additional Settings/Developer Options/Mi Unlock status and check “Add account and device”

In case you face “86006 Error” and you cannot connect your Mi Account to your device: There are several solutions offered at Mi Forum but the easiest way is to download the firmware Developer Version for Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (whyred) here http://en.miui.com/download-342.html or Redmi Note 5 Pro (whyred) here http://en.miui.com/download-341.html.

a. Put the downloaded firmware into internal memory of the device
b. Go to: Settings/About phone/System update. On the upper right corner there are three points, click them, select “Choose update package”, select “File Manager” and choose the Developer Version package you just downloaded on your internal memory and press OK.

B: Unlock the Bootloader

Attention: Unlocking the bootloader will erase all your data! So please back up your data before you unlock the bootloader!

1. You must enable “OEM unlocking” and “USB debugging” as per point A. 3.
2. You must connect your Mi Account with your device as per point A. 6.

4. Enter the fastboot mode by holding together “Volume Down + Power” and connect your device to your computer via USB cable (best would be the original cable)

8. Follow the unlock tool instructions until the unlock procedure is finished
9. Reboot your device

P.S.: In case you get the message, that the unlocking can be done after 360h or 720h then you have to wait for that time to pass.

C: Install the TWRP Recovery

1. Your bootloader must be unlocked
2. Download the latest “twrp-x.x.x-x-whyred.img” from here: https://twrp.me/xiaomi/xiaomiredminote5pro.html and put it into a dedicated folder in your computer.
3. Go to the folder where you have put the twrp-file. Now open a command window inside that folder. To do that hold together “Shift + Right click” on any empty white space inside the folder and then select “Open PowerShell Window Here” or “Open Command Window Here”
4. Enter fastboot mode by holding together “Volume Down + Power” and connect your device to your computer
5. Enter the terminal command in command line: >>fastboot flash recovery twrp-x.x.x-x-whyred.img<<. Attention: Do not restart your device otherwise Xiaomi’s original recovery might overwrite the custom recovery TWRP!
6. Boot your device into recovery (3 possible methods)
+ by entering terminal command in command line: >>fastboot boot twrp-x.x.x-x-whyred.img<<, or
+ by holding together “Volume Up + Power” until you see the MI logo, release “Power” button but keep pressing “Volume Up” until you see the recovery, or
+ by holding together “Volume Up + Volume Down + Power” until you see recovery

If you only want to keep TWRP for later use and not be overwritten by original Xiaomirecovery, then please continue to point E.
