    I'm trying to root my mi2s via framaroot but always error msg appears "failure #7".
    Already activated "Unknown sources" even "Usb debag"
    Also note that I'm a rookie in all this so kindly help as much simple & detailed you can.
    Finally,correct procedure is Root & then to pass ROM,correct??(rookie!!)
    Kindly give details/links/videos for both.
    Many thnks

    Are you running MIUI? If you are, you should just activate root in the security app if I remember correctly.

    I'm not running any custom rom.
    MIUI Version JLB 29.0
    In security app cannot find such an option.Screenshots would be helpful!!

    Guys do not forget I'm a rookie so my question is this : In order to root the phone should I pass a custom rom prior ot after rooting??
    Many thnks

  7. we have a unlocked bootloader. That means that we don't need any root exploit.
    your choices are:
    1) install a rooted ROM(dev from en.miui.com or miuiandroid rom)
    2) install CWM(it has a root option)
