    i am selling my new Mi2s Smartphone. The phone is new, works perfectually but I am not able to root the phone and update it with an updated rom. Somehow I dont have the permissions and the update apps.

    The phone comes in original package but please only serious buyers who either use the phone without root or know how to update the phone even without permissions and update apps.

    Price: 310,- shipped

    No update app? Sounds suspicious. More information please and a screenshot of the system information page.

    The phone is an original Mi2s.
    I bought it from *******, however when it arrived apps were crashing constantly.
    I sent it back therefore and it came back repaired, however unrooted and without permissions and updater.

    Can anybody tell me how I can root the phone and update it with the latest rom

    First Download latest MIUI-3.8.16.zip and rename it to update.zip
    Power-off the phone
    After phone completely shuts down hold volume up button and power button
    After u see xiaomi display just release both the buttons
    You will enter into miui-recovery
    In recovery you have option to flash update.zip just select it, Now you have latest MIUI with root
    If you want the CWM recovery just download it and rename it and update.zip and flash it as above

    I get into the menu with recovery 3e. However the power button does not work when I press it to choose any of the menu choice, like update from sd card

    Sorry to tell you but if you get 3e recovery then you have a fake.

    Usually it is but you seem to have gone unlucky here.

    3e recovery is the number one indicator of fakes.

    I think you should contact ******* and complain about this.
    Demand a new original phone.

    Try to contact paypal as well, see if you can cancel the transaction due to a fraud.

    I have to clarify a few things:

    A) I can now confirm that this is a fake and of course, as such it is not for sale
    B) I have newer senna such a well made fake. It is outstanding
    C) In realizing that this is a fake I realized that this us not the phone I sent back to *******. It is actually a phone I bought st EBay and didn't arrive and after me complaint I got an refund and the seller said that he had been ripped off by his provider and that the phones were fake. I had completely forgotten about it because I was expecting the repaired phone from ******* to come back
    D) Now that I have this fake could anybody help me how to install drivers, and how to root it. Who produces these fakes?

    He said he already had a refund.

    Fake phone easily seen by the stamps in the back of the box. Also misses the validation sticker

    It probably contains an MTK chipset, you could try to figure that out with CPU-Z or other tools. Then you could look on MTK forums if there is a solution to root the phone. Updating the phone is not possible.

    Could you post a photo of the back of the phone without cover and without battery?
