I spent an hour today trying to get my MiPad 2 connected to my Win 10 laptop.
I've had a few Win 10 updates since the last time I ran Toolbox but this was ridiculous.

I installed so many different drivers, rebooted both devices too many times, what a nightmare!

Eventually, I powered off MiPad 2, disconnected from laptop, held vol down button whilst connecting to the laptop....it entered Fastboot mode and the Tool.bat toolbox recognised it and began the update.
This is the first time I've had this much trouble getting the devices connected. If I have had trouble in the past, a simple reboot of both laptop and MiPad 2 resolves it.....not this time !!!

Anyway, thanks for the updated ROM papka__, it is updating now as I write this.
I suppose, I wrote some months before, that it's possible to run toolbox from fastboot mode, if drivers for fastboot correctly installed.

Hey Papka_

just installed the rom using your tutorial (MIUI9_8.3.1_China_dev_Recovery_Root_Gapps) but i find my mipad being a bit slow in response.

Any ideas on why ??

MIUI 9 8.3.8 | Beta
Kernel version - 3.14.37-x86_64-gfa0f44a

EDIT:
Battery still flying away fast.. only 2hrs of screen time :\ Why ?? :(

8.3.1 was not good made by me. I'll publish 8.3.8 after a while. Flash over. Maybe will be better.....

But are these any better ??

Images based on China stable 8.5.1.0
Images based on China stable 9.2.3.0

I want a rom that enables Google Play and a normal battery usage.

When i first got this tablet it lasted about 5 hrs of screen time...now.... not even half :(

I think it's something with 8.3.8. Something broken there. 8.3.1 was fine.

I think you mixed the roms :D

So you recommend 8.3.8 ??
No. I'm not mixing. I'm checking now. 8.3.1 was OK from battery perspective, but I made a mod incorrectly. After I updated to 8.3.8, initially I got huge battery drain. I think I found a problem. I will check today. Probably will provide more information evening. Then today/tomorrow I'm planning to make a mod on stable version 9.5.1.0. In your case, I would recommend you stable release if you don't want to update weekly...

I still have the battery issue..Only 2h15 of screen time average

What rom do you advise me testing ?? Or which one do you think has better battery values ?

That's because I need to provide newer version. When you doing update, you getting full version of ROM, instead of real OTA (partial update). That's why all add-on's swiped. I'll probably upload new version topday/tomorrow. Then you need to apply updates at least once in 2 weeks. An all will works as expected.
