Flash Zip files
Install custom recovery


Windows: Adb and Fastboot (placed on %PATH%)
Unix / Linux: Adb and Fastboot, need to execute some commands with SUDO, so an user-password is needed, do not execute as root




  1. Download the Zip file
  2. Extract the folder
  3. Make sure ADB and Fastboot are working well on your device and they're both on a %PATH% (C:WindowsSystem32 for example) folder
  4. Run XiaomiTool.exe and enjoy


  1. Download the zip file
  2. Extract everything in a folder
  3. chmod +x XiaomiTool or run sh XiaomiTool (The one on the main dir)
  4. Insert your password when asked (see here why it's needed)


  1. Download the zip file
  2. Extract the folder
  3. chmod +x
  4. Execute Start ( ./ )
  5. >> If something goes wrong make sure you can execute adb and fastboot without root access, if not run sudo ./Start


Which one should I choose?
> Windows : it works on all windows-powered Pcs and on Wine, it only needs adb and fastboot
> Linux : if you're running a debian-based distro
> Unix : (mac) os X, *bsd and it may also be good on other linux distros where the linux one does not work (well)
