    Hi!

    I got a Hongmi WCDMA which has a custom ROM on it (MIUI-sjrom.cn) and chinese factory menu and NO RECOVERY. The phone just restarts when I want to go into recovery mode. I even rooted it with vRoot and updated factory recovery menu, but when I want to go into recovery, it just restarts. I tried to install CMW as well, but after installation with MobileUncle, when it wants to go into the newly installed recovery menu, the phone just restarts.
    When I want to install/flash manually full Xiaomi ROM, it just restarts and doesn't make any difference.
    I want to restore everything, I want the phone as it was when it was bought. I didn't buy it nor root it, but now I want to restore everything to totally factory.
    How can I do that?

    Where did you buy your Redmi?
    More and more users are having problems with this screwed up sjrom.

    Following approach was successful for at least one user
