I got mine yesterday and updated with the OTA as well. Just curious, what guide did you use to root with? I actually like the UI so just want root and custom recovery. Not interested in flashing any roms.
Buy from my local store , with global rom and bootloader already unlocked. Then I flash manual (becoz unable to OTA update - maybe fake global rom) with official rom from miui.com stable 188.8.131.52
Then root it and install many apk that need root access
Just bought from Gear Best -- Max 2 coupon codes in post.
Gear Best -- 4/64 - for $229, free shipping, no tax. If you want the HK rom instead of the world rom, it's only $219. I'm in the states so duties aren't an issue.
eGlobalcentral has it for 229 but I think only the HK rom. The service and shipping of the US site is astoundingly good, in my experience, but I haven't tried to return anything and I've read horrible reviews of their AU and EU sites.
Anyhow -- Gearbest coupons I tried to use that didn't work. Got a message they couldn't be used by US buyers (but I didn't try all of them).
Flash sale price: $229.99
Coupon 1 ($201.99): BLFRPL15 (Poland only!)
Coupon 2 ($207.11): 1111PL54 (Poland only!)
