    Hi, you can just flash the SuperSU zip file from your TWRP recovery and remove/freeze any bloatware with TitaniumBackup Pro.

    Also, when you update your phone to newer version of ROM, don't forget to flash the SuperSU once again right after the ROM flash process finished. This way your phone will not lose the root access after updated to newer version of ROM.

    Why don't you use xiaomi.eu roms if you want root?

    Why is everybody here so confused for Redmi 2 rooting process? The process to install root on this phone is so easy and pretty straightaway.

    Once you already have ur TWRP or CWM recovery installed you can just flash the SuperSU zip (https://download.chainfire.eu/696/SuperSU) and your phone will be rooted after that. That's all.

    The possibility to brick the phone... makes you scared.

    The video? It is correct? I can follow it to do a proper root?

    Use dev roms xiaomi.eu.
    Using stable versions and then rooting makes your doing without sense.

    Why? You want root just to remove 2 apps? Great...
