The below instructions will wipe off all the data, so please take a backup beforehand. AMS and its members wouldn’t be held responsible in case of a thermonuclear war, your alarm doesn’t wake you up, or if anything happens to your device and data by performing the below steps.
1: Install Android SDK
To begin, you’ll need to install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC—the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google.
So download it, then extract the contents of the zip file to a folder on your PC. This will give you a platform-tools folder which we’ll use throughout this guide to install CherishOS on Redmi Note 10 Pro/Max.
2: Enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking
Next, you need to enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking on your device. The former will make your phone recognized by the computer in ADB mode.
This will enable you to enter Fastboot Mode. On the other hand, unlocking your device’s bootloader requires that it be unlocked by the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
To enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking, go to Settings > About Phone > Tap on Build Number 7 times. Then return to Settings > System > Advanced> Developer Options and check both boxes.
3: Unlock the Bootloader on the Redmi Note 10 Pro/Max
To complete the process, you will also need to unlock your device’s bootloader. This procedure erases all data from your phone and may void its warranty so only do so if you’re sure that it’s what you want!
