Hello, Mi Fans!
We, at Xiaomi, believe in providing the best of user experience to our users. To make the user experience safer for our users, we have adjusted the security mechanism of Mi A1 by adjusting the logic of FastBoot flashing method.
When you flash the device, please be cautious about using the "flash_factory.sh" and/or "flash_factory.bat" scripts which are designed for factory purpose only. If you do use it, do note that your device IMEI will totally be removed and cannot be recovered via FastBoot method, which will cause very serious damage to your device.
Therefore, we recommend you not to use the flash_factory.sh and flash_factory.bat scripts.
We appreciate your co-operation and understanding.
