    Hey guys,

    I literally just received my mipad minutes ago via DHL, and want to get this up to MIUI v6. What is the easiest way to do this? I want to get onto the xiaomi.eu ROM release ASAP!

    Is it true that I need to install a developer MIUI v5 ROM first, before I can go to MIUI v6? I saw something about this on this page.

    I took the plunge, and it was quite painless!

    1) download 4.8.22, the last MIUI v5 dev ROM for mipad
    2) place it in root of SD card, and rename it to update.zip
    3) reboot mipad, and hold down volume + to get into recovery mode
    4) update and reboot!
    5) download latest MIUI 6 dev ROM, and do steps 2-4 again
    6) enjoy MIUI 6 on mipad

    Is MIUI 6 better than the current rom?
     
  5. Is there an option in settings to enable card writes for all apps? I really hate Kitkat due to this. I read somewhere there is a setting to enable card writes.

    just got my MiPad.... how to install this custom EU ROM? Is it ROOTED?

    what is this v5 and v6? My version now is KXFCNBF2.0.
    And where can I download v6 dev ROM?
    I can see only version 4.10.24 but no link yet. Or is it 4.10.17?
    And if I do the update like the post above, will all my data gone?

    Please help me....

    well, it is not actually spoonfeeding.... at least give ppl a head-up on what's going on.
    if i dont do my research, how am i suppose to know v5 and v6.

    anyway, mipad is not a $10 gadget when it is broken i can replace it again.
    need to work my butt off to buy this gadget. :p

    OK, I updated it to 4.10.24 XIAOMI EU ROM, but it is NOT rooted.
    how to root it?

    ROOTED now, thx for the info erlk├Ânig.
