Do you have not enough courage to manually unlock Redmi Note 3 bootloader as well as to flash custom recovery and to root the Android system running on it? Then you can try doing it automatically, or let me say, automagically using WinDroid Tool. This Windows based utility is designed to simplify the process of unlocking bootloader, gaining root access and something in between. Luckily, this magic utility supports Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
