Hi all, been trying to root this phone by way of installing the Developer ROM. I dont have a Windows computer, so this is my only option. And as outlined in many guides should work fine. My Redmi 2 is not very old (bought beginning of Nov) and came with MIUI 220.127.116.11 (KHJCNCI). I tried both the Global and Chinese Developer ROM ("miui_HM2XWCGlobal_5.11.6_a586f43fb2_4.4.zip" & "miui_HM2XWC_5.11.26_37553705f2_4.4.zip") directly from the mi.com site, and copied them to the phone (into the downloaded_rom folder ) and went through the Update app (using the three dots>install update package) but the update process fails each time (gets to about 12% and then completes with an error: Error applying update. I have also tried to rename the package to "update.zip" but that makes no difference, same problem. I have also reset the phone, and tried without a 2nd SIM and by copying the update to the miniSD card. All of this still makes no difference. Please help, this is very frustrating. I cannot believe I am stuck here.
