How to root the MiPad
Updated: 22 July 2014


Having received my MiPad yesterday, I wasted no time in configuring it what I want and how I want it. So I dug around looking for a root solution, but I failed. When @KateZ heard about my predicament, she took it upon herself to lend a hand. Guess what? She found it for me!

Thanks!!  

So all thanks to @KateZ, I'm able to bring you the step by step of how to root your MiPad. Oh yeah, I'll do it in English, so you guys have no fear, when faced with any non English words on screen.

Ok, there are possibly several ways and the one I used is VROOT, which is actually the English version of ROOT 大师. VROOT is PC based, so you need to download and install on a PC. Once you install and run it, you will realise it is actually ROOT 大师 with some English words. Ok ok, give them more credit. I think using VROOT, non chinese readers should be able to figure things out without much trouble.


Please note that you need to be on Developer ROM before you proceed. The out of the box Stable ROM cannot be rooted at the time of writing.
Thank you @Lafsen for trying both ROMs out and updating us!

Before you begin, activate Developer options on the MiPad. In case you don't know how to do it, tap on Settings - About phone and then tap on Build number 7 times. Go back up one level and you will now see Developer options just above About phone.

Now, before you run VROOT, open your MiPad and tap on Settings - Developer options and turn on USB debugging.

If at this time your MiPad is already connected, you will see a pop up. Go ahead and tap on OK.

Now you are ready to start VROOT. The moment VROOT starts, you will see the following screen, because you are already connected and have USB debugging on. VROOT connects automatically without you having to do anything.

After sometime, the connection is successful and you will see this.

At this point in time, don't use your MiPad anymore, because when you hit Root, the process starts.

When you are all done (less than 2 min), you will see the MiPad restart on its own. Click on Complete and go ahead and close VROOT. VR05.png

When the MiPad restarted, you will see 2 new icons.

Well VROOT is free, so I guess their income mostly comes from referrals, 应用酷 contains lots of app recommendations. If there are stuff you need, do consider installing via this avenue so that VROOT remains free. The vRoot app is actually a version of SuperSU, combined with Clean Master, I think... Not sure if you can uninstall it and install Chainfire's version. You might wanna give it a go. Do drop us a line here to update everyone. Ok, happy rooting!

I followed the instructions but vRoot says it failed to root. Tried other software all failed. Checked vRoot's support page apparently MiPad not supported

Which version of ROM are you on? Stable or Dev? BTW, the screen captures in my post are from my computer, with my MiPad connected and rooting.

Not sure. I think it's the one that came with the phone, which was bought from China

If you have not done anything to it, it is the Stable ROM. The naming convention is
KXFCNBF2.0
the number behind being the version of the ROM. I didn't try rooting the MiPad while it's on the Stable ROM, so cannot answer you. Sorry.
