    Hello,

    I have a Hongmi (Model 2013023) with android version 4.2.2 HM2013023 and MIUI version MIUI-JHBCNAH3.0

    When I bought the phone and installed the mutlilanguage pack like is shown in this thread:
    http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/xiaomi-hongmi-td-wcdma-update-guide.22095/
    Now I want to install Xiaomi Hongmi WCDMA - Stable 4.0 Multilang

    Problem is like many have found that vRoot doesn't work any more.

    I tried many solution like Farmaroot with supersu and earlier versions of vRoot but none of them work!

    Could somebody please give me a step by step solution on how to install the Xiaomi Hongmi WCDMA - Stable 4.0 Multilang

    Thank you so much.

    Problem is the root. I can't use MobileUncle because I can't get the phone rooted. Tried older versions of vRoot, tried Farmaroot and tried zdsrooter. None of them work. And now I want to flash something and when I reboot in recovery mode, everything is in chinese.

    I would agree with you, but I spent half a day to find the answer to this question...
    Don't you think it wouldn't be so difficult to give a link to this or even your instruction? :)

    @pjovp,
    Now I have Stable 4.0 multi and Chinese recovery.
    Can I install the older (stock) rom via current OTA updater by selecting zip file? I want to avoid using Chinese recovery...

    all versions I have installed always had the recovery in english and by the way I was never able to update via OTA.
    just install the stable version from the forum

    Then got the answer you have to install an older rom , hip hip huray.
    How then if you are stuck with the factory revovery .
    See no images which give some explanation
    No every time boring adds .
    You should think that it must be possible to root this phone on a easy way like one click root

    Flash with your recovery.
    Better is to use this one. Can be flashed from updater app (and recovery).

    Report:
    I had Stable 4.0 multi and I couldn't root using vRoot or Framaroot.
    1) Installed Stable 5.0 multi using Chinese CWM
    2) Forgot to wipe...
    3) Reboot... Everything is working fine
    4) Installed "root for 5.0" mentioned above.
    5) Reboot... Everything is working fine.
    10x a lot.
