    But how to Boot into Default Mi-Recovery by starting the Updater app..? Plz reply…. i am going to root redmi 1s, it is my first

  • Ravinder

    Is there any risk of doing rooting….as i am doing it first time…. if yes, plz mention some precautions during doing so… Thanks in Advance…:)

    • MIUI is already pre-rooted, you just have enable it from the settings.

  • Amit Gupta

    Two Questions:
    1. Does the device need to be rooted first for this?.
    2. How do we go back to default Mi-Recovery (original) one, later. I installed this and now recovery mode from Updater leads to this mode instead of original (chiness+english) version.

    • you can flash stock recovery .zip with your current recovery same as you flashed this one.
      and you dont require root for installing recovery and this device comes pre-rooted.

  • Ravinder

    I have done back-up through CWM. So can i restore to current MIUI V5 without any loss of data and settings in future….?

    • yes, you can restore CWM Backup anytime and with that your data will also be restored.
