Xiaomi introduces “anti-rollback” mechanism to Redmi Note 5 Pro in order to maintain stability and ensure security of the handset. This feature will be active starting with MIUI 10 Global Beta ROM 8.7.5 update. If you have updated to your Redmi Note 5 (Pro) to this build, do not try downgrade to previous stable or beta build, as it will brick your device.
