Hello,

I have received my new Redmi 1S today. I need a few days for proper impressins, however, I need some help here.

It appears it comes with some sort of Miui own recovery. It doesn't allow me to flash Multilanguage ROM as if it was TWRP or CWM.
Further more, trying to click the Systems update, it closes immediately. Not sure if it's a bug or something is wrong with my Redmi.

So, is there a way to flash a new ROM ? Maybe a new recovery ?
Is there a guide for using MiFlash ?

Thank you all.

go to Updater - Menu - Select installation zip - select our multilang - OK - DONE...

Right. The thing is - there is no Updater.
I'm not sure why and what did the seller do, but there is no such application.
I checked the IMEI/Serial combination on Xiaomi website. It is an original Redmi 1S

Well maybe original device but not original software for sure.

Battery life is terrible !
It cannot last a day. Its 29% now (16:55) from 100% in the morning.

My MTK-based Hongmi easily lasted for 2 days. This one is not even close.

Either the device has a problem, or the Qualcomm CPU sucks big time !

True, battery life is not great. I´m even thinking about buying a spare one
Yes, on moderate use it lasts barely a day. When I say average use, 30 mins gaming, 2 hours browsing, 2 hours call. that's pretty much it. Not sure if its a software issue, but would be nice if the MIUI team can help
