Need Help With Installing Rom (adware Preinstalled)

Mar 4, 2015
I have received a Xiaomi Redmi Note LTE. I like the phone but unfortunately there's adware on that (also its version is, which is not an official ROM if I understood the support).
I tried Malware bytes, I removed a lot of bloatware through adb shell... It still pops up full screen ads.

I decided to flash my ROM. Unfortunately I've seen so many versions on how to that, that I'm lost :).

The official MiFlash tool does not see my phone in Fastboot mode. Others suggested that Fastboot flashing can hurt the phone, so I should use ClockWorkMod. On ClockWorkMod I did not find Xiaomi to be supported at all.

So, what's the easiest way to that? How are you doing it?

Start from checking if the phone is original.

Oh, and how can I check that?

I did check the IMEI number on and it showed me the Xiaomi Redmi 4G phone. Do you know a better check?

Also checked with CPU-Z. Proc is Qualcomm snapdragon 400, GPU is Adreno 305. Device in the software was identified as Redmi Note 4G (dior).
