    Hi all,

    Myself and m1cha have been on this ALL evening and got no where.

    1.0.0 may of been rootable but 1.1.1 and 1.2.0 are not. There is no way to get to bootloader mode or anything else that would exploit the box e.g. mempodroid, GingerBreak.

    Unless we can get the FULL userdebug ROM we cannot move this forward which SUCKS!

    Sounds like the problem with the mediatek chips.

    Did you guys open it up yet and look for jtag pins?

    The issues with that + everything else. They dont care about International user support at all.

    I'm glad you're still involved I was excited by your post the other day about big plans for 13/14
    Dont let xiaomi get you down, you've built a strong friendly forum here, it encouraged me to get my mi2 to start with!

    Hey @Mark, you can make the |0xD34D| and join Chameleon OS. It's the ROM that MIUI ment to be. Open source and supports themes. That was the miui.us way to protest against xiaomi :D

    I hope that you stop is a big sign for xiaomi, because actually I liked their work but they got too commercial.

    Sad to hear.

    I hope Xiaomi realizes that experience is important for delivering a good user experience!
