My Partner has the Mi-Pad 2 flashed with Miui 7 Global 5.12.24 beta.. we found it on the miui site(official) and was developed by a vietnamese group.... But is quite buggy... So she is KEEN to move on to a better/newer rom.... Other rom was flashed via fastboot so only has stock recovery and am not sure loosing MTP support is worth flashing TWRP.... So I am asking what are our next options etc what rom and was is the best way to get playstore, superuser etc fully working???



thanks in advance.

Just flash xiaomi.eu rom on your Mi Pad 2 via TWRP. You probably know that there's no MIUI 8 for Mi Pad / Mi Pad 2 so...

Last "dev" rom 6.5.26 (MIUI 7): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24566454284190003
TWRP recovery: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24421527759888024


As @ingbrzy said:
MIPAD 2 GOOGLE APPS REMOVED!
- We decided to remove Google apps from MiPAD 2 ROM due to unresolved ERROR 963..
- Install them separately after ROM installation via Google Installer or OpenGapps.org (x86_64 - 5.1 - pico) and update Google WebView

Did you wiped all data? Try to hold power button for 10-20 seconds and see if something change. Try 2 times!

1)Reinstalled previous fully working rom thats was also pre rooted (MobileCity-v1.0_Xiaomi-MiPad2_MIUI7-V5.12.24-Global_5.1)

2)then flashed lates EU rom

3)Flashed rooted using 2,46 su,

4)then flashed used gapps pico

5)finally finished by instlling GApps_IntelChipset

One final reboot and Now works perfectly, well other then a bug we have found which results in having to reunlock about 5 times before it stays unlocked!!! has happened twice so far

So am I as I had a rather upset Partner and she was not happy lol..... Tried every other way mention on the forum none of them worked.. The way I did is basically all or nothing and worked... She is happy and at least now it should be a breeze when an update comes out for the Mi-Pad 2..
