Root Xiaomi

Before rooting Xiaomi, be sure that your device has unlocked bootloader. Follow this guide how to root Xiaomi:

  • Download and unpack ADB archive on your PC
  • Download and save at the internal storage of your phone Magisk.zip or SuperSU.zip (the latest version working on most of Xiaomi smartphones, if it won’t work on your device – write your model in the comments), don’t unpack it
  • Save in the ADB folder the latest TWRP for your device, rename it exactly to “twrp.img”
If you don’t know what TWRP and Magisk archives you need – ask it in the comments, don’t forget to write full model of your Xiaomi and MIUI version! For example: “Root Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A MIUI 9” and I’ll send you archive for rooting Xiaomi you on.
