*******  !!! NOT FOR REDMI 1S or REDMI NOTE !!!  
******* DO NOT TRY THIS PROCEDURE ON REDMI 1S or REDMI NOTE  *******

I am sure many of you have looked left and right for a simple, straight forward guide to ROOT or install a custom recovery on your brand new Xiaomi Redmi.

Well, here it is, a simple, step by step guide on how to safely do this.

The following items are required:
·        TWRP Recovery 2.5.0.0  – Choose the one you need according to your phone model
             HM1W-TWRP-2.5.0.0-stas2z.zip (6.12 MB, Downloads: 23395)

ATP:RedRice TWRP is useful for new ROM, too. When install it by choosing archive ROM.zip, install too root.zip together. Your new ROM is rooted by TWRP... reboot to use-it!  17:59, Jun-01-2014

Just to share my experience here.
Mine is order from MI Singapore.

Model: HM1W
MIUI: MIUI-JHBSGBA13.0
Android: 4.2.2 HM2013023

When I try [HM1W-TWRP-2.5.0.0-stas2z.zip ] it show this error message.
In fact I am using a new (blank) SDcard which I have formatted under Redmi.

Error: Invalid parition setting
1: mbr c00000:600000
Installation aborted.

Shutdown.

Start phone with  VOLUME DOWN and POWER buttons,
select recovery and apply HM1SG-TWRP-2.5.0.0-stas2z.zip.
This one gets installed successfully.

Shutdown.
Start phone with  VOLUME DOWN and POWER buttons.
It will not get into TWRP automatically
Select "Recovery" and it will start TWRP.

Hope this helps.

I also got the error below right after selecting HM1W-TWRP-2.5.0.0-stas2z.zip, does it have anything to do with my SD card? My card has 2 partition, both FAT32.

Error: Invalid parition setting

punkthemonk hi mate, I think so, yes. This has been tested and it is fully working on an un-partitioned SD card  16:33, Mar-24-2014

@Azmiaskme and To those that want to update to latest version of MIUI that has been rooted.

First, make sure there's a update file (ROM file) in the folder "downloaded_rom" on the SD card (when I press update from the "Updater", my redmi simply reboot and go into TWRP. However, the ROM file was downloaded and it's named "miui-ota-HM2013023_sg-JHBSGBD15.-JHBSGBD16.0-f621bf8872-4.2.zip")

Then go to "Updater" again and press update, this time it should start updating to version 16. The root will be lost (I checked by trying "SuperSU" and it says there's no root.

To get root again, simply redo the rooting process (reinstall TWRP and the root file) by following the rooting method posted on the first thread.

This works for me and all my apps are running fine with the latest update and root access.

Hi, After installing TWRP, when i rebooted my device, i still got the boot mode options instead TWRP ...

This happened to me the first time after installing TWRP successfully but I still have CWM access only(without TWRP). This was because I accidentally booted up the phone normally instead of immediately entering the menu through Power Button + Down button.

I repeated the process to install TWRP once again, removed the battery to power off, and this time made sure to restart the phone immediately with Power Button + Down button. and TWRP was successfully installed.

I am also having this problem:

Error: Invalid parition setting

If yours is a SG set try
HM1SG-TWRP-2.5.0.0-stas2z.zip.

I had the same problem.
My set show HM1W but could not use HM1W TWRP, can only use HM1SG.
