I got an old Xiaomi Mi5 from a friend that has a Mi Account lock.

He forgot his password so I am not able to use it because the phone is bound to his account.

Is there any chance for me to flash a new firmware on the phone and bypass the account lock? Do I need to unlock the bootloader first?

Thak you for your kindness!


you won't be able to unlock the bootloader without the mi account & password ... & without an unlocked bootloader you won't be able to do a fastboot flash
