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 :(

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.
