I just rooted my brand new TD Hongmi,

when i reboot to recovery and try to install the trwp .zip file i get the following message

Error: Partition table not match
Installation aborted.

I cannot flash the recovery .img file through moble uncle either, after flashing and rebooting to recovery, the stock recovery loads...

help is very much appreciated!!

Post the system screen op CPU-Z here, I can compare with mine.
It must say also 320 dpi and mt6589.
I assume you downloaded cpu-z by your self from the play store (not included already on your phone). You can also check resolution when making screenshot en check resolution on your pc.

Run also Antutu benchmark. Download it from the playstore and do not use the one if it was already included on your phone. Version Antutu should be 4.2
It is not always telling everything but give it a try. My score: 16056.

Strange. You can also check in MobileUncleTools.

You have the TD version. You are not trying WCDMA roms ?

Differences I see: I have memory 2043.1 MB (I have WCDMA phone)
Assuming it is not fake then your memory is partioned different and that is causing the problem.
Did you use spflashtool ?

I think if you check your system storage under Settings you will see 1 GB instead of 2 GB.

Hi, yes i have the TD version.

I didn't try any new ROMs yet, i rooted, and tried to flash the new recovery and that's how this all started.

I didn't use spflashtool yet, is my phone fake or?

one thing i do remember doing is full wipe BEFORE flashing the new recovery after rooting, could this of messed up the partition tables?

i also noticed there is no serial number on the box to enter the code on xiaomi website :/

Full wipe is only formatting filesystems, no repartioning.

Serial number is on a little plastic film. You need to scratch with your nails the grey area to see the serial number.

To see the ROM partion you have to use a terminal emulator and use this command:

cat /proc/dumchar_info

In my case I see :
