Pre-conditions - as in other instructions, you know what you are doing, you flashed TWRP http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/instruction-how-to-flash-twrp.30787/.

1. Download this archive - https://pucina.dedyn.io:8181/data/public/c3e708
2. Extract it somewhere on your PC (let's say c:\tabroot, let's call it N1)
3. Connect you tab to PC (Developer Options should be unblocked and USB Debugging turned on).
4. In Windows explorer, when tabroot (N1) folder opened press Shift and right mouse button and select "Open command window here".
5. Run root.bat and follow the instruction.

You will be rooted. Method work on any dev rom.

Another method - flash from TWRP. Use this archive for that https://pucina.dedyn.io:8181/data/public/5f2f07

You should boot into fastboot and run root.bat. same way how you installed native Android or TWRP.

I am not sure thaty you should be in fastboot.
It depends on root app - in my version of root app you should be in Miui. It should be visbible in adb devices (not in fastboot devices)

Does anyone know how to unroot agian? I've installed TWRP to install the xiaomi.eu roms, but some apps don't allow rooted devices.
Is there a way to unroot and use the dev roms? Or should I wait for a stable xiaomi.eu rom without root?

Try to install from Market. Then try to unroot. I suggest not update binaries. You might get bootloop. Have no idea if this will work. Also I heard that xiaomi.eu ROM not rooted by default.... Simple reflash of latest?

Thanks Papka.
I got a bootloop ;-) I was too fast and already tried it to flash with twrp.
But I reflashed the whole system again and now the system is working again.

If I used a root checker, it says that the system is not rooted, but some apps keeps telling me it's a rooted device.
I will contact the app dev of the apps that giving me this error.

Maybe it's due to usage of custom firmware... I can't recall now, but some days before I installed one app and got message that I'm using custom. Short memory. I don't know about Xposed, if it's possible to get on MiPad2. If yes - there is a module that hiding root from apps....

And I want to unroot my Mi Pad 2, how is this done? I did a full unroot with the installed supersu application and the Mi Pad 2 hangs now with the mi.com logo and does not start again. What do I need to do to get rid of this root stuff?

Probably manually only. Maybe I will add this to Universal tool.
