[Announcement] [Warning] The Risks of Boot Loader Unlocking on Mi A1

2017-11-06 14:46:37
20744 116

What are the risks of unlocking Xiaomi Mi A1?
1. By unlocking the device you agree that this may bring changes to some parts of the system. These changes may damage the device.
2. After the device is unlocked, it becomes less secure and more vulnerable to malware attacks, which may lead to the disclosure and loss of your private data.
3. Some features which require high security level (e.g., Find device, added-value services, etc.) will no longer be available.
4. After the device is unlocked, some features will be changed. Thus, you will no longer be able to receive regular updates and enjoy newest features.

The risks stated above do not fully cover changes which may be brought about by Mi Unlock.

Device will become less secure, but that doesn't mean malware will jump from nowhere to your device. Just don't install shady apps and let someone you don't trust access your device through adb or something.
And all features will work because magisk exists.
And the chances of damaging the system is so low, how will something like this damage a system unless the procedure or the root method wasn't coded right, which is usually always perfect.
