    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

    it's not working. no difference if i select it from updater or boot into recovery by holding volume+

    this is what i get if i reboot from updater app to install selected rom
    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.
