[Root] Xiaomi Redmi 1S root

Jun 21, 2014

I have a Xiaomi Redmi 1S (or Hongmi, or Red Rice), and I love it!

As soon as I got it, I flashed the Xiaomi.eu ROM from this site, because it is the most up-to-date ROM with my native language.

But I have a doubt: is this ROM pre-rooted?

It seems like it is, but when I use the SuperSU app - or any other like this one - it states that the SU (Super User) binary is not implemented.

I flashed a *zip file - I found on the MIUI official forum that should grant root permision - as an update on Mi Recovery and it still does not work.

How can I get root on my Redmi 1S?

Thank you for your help!
I will be waiting a response.

Best regards.

Thank you for your fast reply!

But, I have no such option.

On my Settings I only have the menu "Security & privacy".
And, inside it, I have:
- Screen security;
- Privacy Protection;
- SIM card lock;
- Passwords;
- Device administration;
- Credential storage;
- User Experience.

Already changed to English language, and no "Root" or "Permission" option appears.

Any idea?
