How to FIX Xiaomi Unlock Tool couldn’t verify device of device does not recognize error?
Most of this problem may occur due to the two fastboot options on android devices. Which you can open through running android SDK tool on CMD to enter fastboot mode by typing “adb reboot fastboot” command.
But the problem is if you can’t find the right drivers for your device it will not recognize your device when its on the fastboot mode.
So after discovering the fastbootD you will try to unlock the device through FastbootD. But that option called fatsbootD isn’t supported for such operations.
Therefore if you need to unlock your device you need to install the correct fast boot drivers on your phone to detect it by PC

What is Xiaomi Fastboot and FastbootD
Fastboot and FastbootD: Understanding the Bootloader Modes on Android Devices
Android devices utilize two distinct bootloader modes: Fastboot and FastbootD. Fastboot represents the traditional bootloader mode, while FastbootD is a newer mode introduced in Android 10. These modes provide access to the device’s low-level software, enabling users to perform advanced tasks such as flashing custom ROMs, recovering from bricking, and modifying system configurations.
Fastboot: The Established Bootloader Mode
Fastboot serves as the standard bootloader mode for Android devices, offering a versatile toolset for interacting with the device’s underlying software. It facilitates flashing partitions, excluding the system partition, enabling users to install custom ROMs, troubleshoot software issues, and enhance device functionality.
Entering Fastboot Mode:
To access Fastboot mode, a specific button combination must be held during the device’s boot process. The exact combination varies depending on the device manufacturer. Once in Fastboot mode, a connection to a computer is established, allowing users to execute Fastboot commands to manage the device’s software.
FastbootD: An Enhanced Bootloader Experience
FastbootD emerges as a more secure and reliable alternative to the traditional Fastboot mode. Its introduction in Android 10 reflects Google’s commitment to improving bootloader security and stability. Additionally, FastbootD extends its capabilities to include flashing the system partition, enabling a wider range of advanced tasks.
Accessing FastbootD Mode:
Entering FastbootD mode requires the execution of the fastboot boot fastbootd command, prompting the device to reboot into FastbootD. Once in this mode, users can employ the same commands as in Fastboot mode, benefiting from enhanced security and reliability.
