Hello people,

This is for Mi Note Pro (leo)
Disclaimer:
I'm not responsible for any devices being bricked, your device blowing up or world war 3 starting! You are doing this at your own risk.

A lot of people ask how to gain root on the Mi Note Pro without actually searching the posts so I decided to make a quick tutorial on how to do it. This is the way I have done it and I have found it to be the easiest way! :)

1st Method (THE EASIEST AND SAFEST!)

1. Go to http://en.miui.com/download-273.html and download the Developer ROM


2. If you have downloaded the file through your phone it will be in the Download folder, if not plug your phone into the PC and move the .zip file over to your device.

3. Open Updater app, tap on 3 dots to open the menu and tap on Choose update package


4. Navigate to where you have put in the zip file and click on it and let the phone update. (This will wipe all your data apart from pictures etc.)

5. Once it has loaded go through the setup. Open Security app > Permissions > Root Access.. There you are all done :)  
Make sure you open an app that requires root access first before going to Security app as it will not show up on there.

2nd Method (Advanced Users!)(Temporary TWRP Recovery)

Requirements:
fastboot driver (Link attached)
  Please reply to view this thread.

common sense
mi note pro!

1. First of all download all the things you need. Which are fastboot driver, twrp and supersu. All links are above ^ Copy SuperSu over to your device and keep other files on your PC
2. Power off your device and turn it back on by holding Power button and Volume Down at the same time. This will get you into fastboot menu.
3. Woohoo great now what you will have to do is plug your phone to your PC using a usb cable.
4. Open up the Command Promt and navigate to the location of your fastboot driver. Mine is C:/adb so I would type cd C:/adb in the command promt
5. Now type in fastboot devices just to make sure that your device is listed correctly.
6. Extract the TWRP zip so you have just the .img file. Place it inside same folder as fastboot. I tend to rename it to twrp.img (makes lifes easier)
7. Type fastboot boot twrp.img
8. Now your phone should boot into TWRP!! :D Go to install and flash the SuperSU zip.
9. Reboot and you are all rooted with Stock Recovery and Stable ROM!  

3rd Method (Advanced Users!)(Permanent TWRP Recovery)

Requirements:
fastboot driver (Link attached)

7. Type fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
8. Now your phone should boot into TWRP!! :D Go to install and flash the SuperSU zip.
9. Reboot and you are all rooted with TWRP recovery, the only problem is that your OTA updates will break. You can flash them manually, when Updater downloads an update go into TWRP>Install and navigate to downloaded_rom folder

In case you need to go back to stock Recovery because you have flashed TWRP Permanently please follow instructions on this thread.http://en.miui.com/thread-124319-1-1.html

Nice thread, and also don't forget to add the point that, to open the app you need root access first before going to security, else it will not appear in the root access list.

Yes forgot to add that. I find that really annoying can't xiaomi make it same as SuperSU so it pops up with a window?

with supersu, do we still need to turn on individual apps access in Security Permissions?
Or just SuperSu will do?

As you will be running Stable ROM not Developer ROM it will be just SuperSU handling all the permissions.

Hi guys. I have an small problem, and I hope you don't mind helping me.
i´m trying to root my device through the Developer Rom.
I enter the updater, select the rom, the device auto-reboot into the recovery and starts updating.
The problem arrives when the process is at ~42%. There it jumps to 100% and I receive a error message.
It reads that "signature verificacion failure".
I downloaded the rom from the link you posted and have tried it 2 times.
1st: Downloading in the phone => failure
2nd: Downloading in pc and moving it to the phone => failure again.
May be you know why do I have those problems?
Thanks and regards!!
P.D. That aside, I don´t have any other problem with my device.
