    I recently bought Xiaomi mi4 in Pakistan (not officially available), I was having issues installing MIUI v6 version and rooting it only to find that its a China Unicom 3G version of mi4. The problems I have:
    1) It does not have MIUI recovery
    2) No menu in updater to load a new ROM. Everytime I try to load a ROM the android recovery gives be an errror: "Error: not a valid OTA package, missing scatter."
    3) Just 1 GB for apps in internal storage.

    Is there anyway to unlock the device so that I can install a dev version of MIUI?

    Thanks!!

    If you don't have the MiRecovery you may have a fake Mi4.
    Have you got a code to check authenticity at the back of the phone packet?
     
  3. Definitely sounds like a fake Mi4, where did you buy it from?

    Scatter?? This is MTK shit and not Mi4. You can put your beer on it or throw to a dog.
