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 7.0.12.0 (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.

I have my phone since the beginning of this year, and at that time I spent months trying and not being able to do it.
I didn't know it at the time, but the ROMs between my device and 2014811 are different, and in the English official site, they only had ROMs for the latter - the symptoms were the fail while updating.
Only discovered this when I managed to install twrp and use it to install the rom - it would also fail, but with a message like "wrong device - you have 2014813, this rom is for 2014811."
Found out that, at that time, only the Chinese site had the rom I needed.
That's how I then discovered miui.eu site, and used their specific rom for this device without a problem.

if nothing work , maybe its time for a "clean istall". From fastboot , you need the fastboot rom (china or global) and MiFlash . After clean install you can update to latest rom :)

tonirai is correct. 2014813 is a China-only model/variant. and no "official" global ROM exists...
