    Hello everyone,
    I just bought the Tegra version of the MI3 from Ali Express, and wanted to flash it with a new rom. The weird thing is that it doesn't apparently have a recovery mode.
    It just displays this:

    The MiFlash - which I wanted to use to flash the rom - doesn't even shows up the device, while the fastboot via terminal just says "mt6582_phone".
    I'm starting to think that its a fake version. But the Antutu benchmark actually scores 36k+! Which would be weird for an imitation, isn't it? I don't really know.

    Could someone give me some information on how to check that its an original version?


    Thank you

    You get faked one. Download system info from playstore to check it again :(

    you had the Antutu pre-installed on the phone?
    anyway, if you're seeing the mtk flag ... yep, its the fake one :(
    sorry mate.

    An easy way to test it out i: http://order.xiaomi.com/service/imei and fill up you S/N IMEI number :)
    But if you have an MT proccesor than for sure its an fake one sorry mate, How mutch did you pay, all prices below 320USD are mostly fake..

    cpu mt.... ? mt what?
    if you bought a Mi3 based on a MTK something cpu, sorry to tell ya, but you bought a fake device.
    the TDCDMA is based on Tegra 4 chip, not a MTK one.
    currently, there's nothing you can do, no different rom can be flashed on fake Mi3s.
