No. I am actually running my stock Rom. And the nice thing about this app is that the phone does not need to be rooted to work. I read somewhere that there was some place in the stock rom that will allow you to give root access to some processes. I just can't find it. Thanks,
I tried for several days to get it done on my own and to avoid this, but I guess, that I will not make it without some more hints: I also want to get root on my phone, which is a 64GB Mi3, WCDMA-version. I made sure that I installed the developer version of the latest ROM (*1) and after that to run "wipe data/factory reset". To do both of that I used CWM (*2). So I go to the menu, settings, general settings and then to security. And now? There is neither a group with the name "Permission", nor a single button. What am I doing wrong? And where is the "Permission Manager" I am told I should go to, when I try to access any function that requires root?
Now that was a tough one that took me almost a week to find. Yes, I know weeeweeen described it perfectly correct. But stupid me expected it to be under Settings and assumed that he had just skipped that step.
So for everyone who - like me - cannot find it: Take a look in the lower right on the main desktop. The name of the green icon you should see there is "Security". It shows a shield with a cross in its center. Start it, then again in the lower right you will see "Permission". Open it and there - finally - you can enable root and manage permissions.
