    If you haven't merged partitions you can return to the latest stable build (v5) and formatting all (also format /sdcard) with mipcsuite

    Download MiPcSuite and install it: http://pcsuite.mi.com/

    Reboot your phone in fastboot mode and connect it to the pc

    In MiPCSuite do Update and select the Stable Version (V5). Now wait and the program will erase all and install latest v5 rom

    I think you should try AOSP 5.1.1
    I found it most stable of them all.

    Its better format your phone before you flash the rom for a clean install.
    If you are not in touch with all flashing rom method i sugest you to search about that.
    I think with wiui you need to change your stock recovery and flash cwm recovery. THen in cwm you can format and reset all your phone easly and from scratch.

    Are you using MiRecovery? If yes, it's normal. You have to unlock the bootloader (fastboot oem unlock) and flash a custom recovery (fastboot flash recovery recovery.img)
