In order to install LineageOS or TWRP or root your Redmi Note 9 Pro you need to unlock the bootloader of your phone. In this post I am presenting a step-by-step guide to unlock bootloader of Redmi Note 9 Pro.

A boot-loader is a piece of software that loads other software(s) during the boot-up process. In Android this bootloader is locked to make sure no-one can alter what is being loaded by this bootloader.
Usually a user can install a software only after the boot process is complete and when the device is ready to use. So, basically the bootloader software is not something that is meant for the user but to run the device. If not secured, the user may alter the boot-up process leaving the device unusable.
