    Hello folks,

    I finally got my RedRice delivered and installed it yesterday. I used the official ROM, not the multi one.
    Now the seller is sending me a lot of mails to confirm the delivery (sorry, I bought from aliexpress). Before I do, I just need your help to identify a potential fake.

    I checked a lot of threads before but I'm not quiet sure, but it's my first xiaomi. I delted the IMEI - or do you need it?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    How I identify if it is Mi recovery?
    I have been in recovery already to flash with official ROM, but it wasn't different from my iOcean...

    Now I booted into recovery and it is different before flashed with official ROM.
    "Android system recovery <3e> ...." font in orange color. Before it was blue


    Now, I saw a Video on youtube: it is not the mi recovery and it definetly wasn't before. Maybe because I installed a different one? Is that possible?
    I almost started right away to flash, like here: http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/xiaomi-hongmi-td-wcdma-update-guide.22095/ but used the official ROm instead of the multi


    I forgot to mention.
    There was a code on the back to check at http://chaxun.xiaomi.com - I translated it and it said basically like it's original and thank you, i think

    No, but they put an addition case - which I ordered - into the box.
    The code on the back was still sealed.
