    Then first thing is to update rom to latest version, then enable root from security app.

    Oke but I'm new with Xiaomi and miui and my phone is now on Android 4.3 and with the updater it says you have the newest software version.
    How can I update to the latest version?

    Download latest dev version from our 4.8.22 thread. Install via Updater (menu - select installation pack). Remember to backup your data using MIUI Backup app as this process will update Android to 4.4.4.

    did you find out,how to enable root access in the new miui v6? I'm not able to find it, there is still Security app and Permissions button, but there isn't the button for enabling the root access

    //edit: nevermind, solved, you have to use permission button for every single app in the root list

    This thread makes no sense to me. I have 4.8.28 and I do not see any of the menu items shown here. So, how to root the phone ?

    It's already rooted. Just move your finger over all MIUI and find proper option. It's not that hard.
