I just bought a Mi2S and want to flash the multilangual MIUI.
But it can't mount the storage in Recovery Mode
If I click on "apply update from sdcard" it says "E:failed to mount /sdcard (Invalid argument)
Same if I reboot from updater app into recovery mode

but I can use the storage if I'm on MIUI and also can connect it to my computer.

any suggestions? thanks

Code:
E:failed to mount /sdcard (Invalid argument)
E:Can't mount /sdcard/update.zip
No SD-Card.
Installation aborted.

well, seems a pretty good fake :( so if it's not MiRecovery - it is fake for sure?
AnTuTu v2.9 Benchmark gives a 24709 score
got it from a local store in chongqing, I'll just bring it back - told him I'll kill him if it's fake...

Well after you said: "got it from local store"... we're 100% sure.. ;)
MI-2S are sold only from xiaomi.com or some other legit eshops like *******.com.

is it possible that I accidentially replaced MiRecovery by CWM? or will this take more effort than just installing cwm app?

That's interesting you have a Qualcomm processor and 2gb ram sounds legit but I may be missing something else..

Oh C'mon guys, just take a look into the specs :) @Kiwisaft: ive edited your post and put a log into pastebin.com.

Hehe:
Code:
Board : uniscope77_bu3_cu_ics2
Lol:
Code:
Screen
Resolution: 540 x 960
Oh and this:
Code:
- /system
/emmc@android ext4 ro,noatime,user_xattr,commit=1,barrier=1,data=ordered,noauto_da_alloc
- /data
/emmc@usrdata ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,user_xattr,barrier=1,data=ordered,noauto_da_alloc
- /cache
/emmc@cache ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,user_xattr,barrier=1,data=ordered,noauto_da_alloc
MI-2 is not using emmc memory blocks.

The SoC is a MTK6577 as well. Also I'm sure it doesn't have the proximity and light sensors if you inspect it closely.

It is a fake, return it as soon as possible without thinking.
