    The news came yesterday that Xiaomi also has now started locking bootloader in the new devices. In fact they launched the new Redmi Note 3 with locked bootloader. There will be more devices which will come similar including Xiaomi Mi 4c and Mi Note Pro.

    These are the first xiaomi phones to come with such process. Until now all their devices used to be with unlocked bootloader. Do you guys have any idea what will be the affect by taking such steps? What will be the advantages and disadvantages of Locked Bootloader on Xiaomi smartphones?
