Hello MIUI-er's,
         I am frequently gettng questions on rooting and flashing TWRP in Redmi Note 2/Prime
! So here I am with a solution for those questions. By following this method you will have root with TWRP recovery. So Let's start!
Disclaimer :I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.

Pre-requisite
  • Redmi Note 2/Prime
  • PC/Laptop
  • Common sense

Downloads
  • Root Folder from here.
  • SuperSU.zip from here.
    Note: This supports all the versions, so no more bootloop!! Please don't ask me whether it will work on "xxxxx miui version" this works on all miui versions!!

Now Let's start,
1. Extract the Root Folder to your Desktop.
2. Copy SuperSU.zip to your phone memory.
2. Put your device in Fastboot mode.
3. Run Root.bat and follow the instructions.

5. Press Volume up + Power button to boot into TWRP.
5. Now select Install and locate and Flash SuperSu.zip

6. Now wipe cache/Dalvik cache and Reboot to system!

4.jpg

Note: Reboot will take some time, so don't think that it's a bootloop!! For "waiting device" issue in CMD, you have to install MI PC suite and try again!!

Voila!! You have Root and TWRP!

Note: Now if you root with any available method you won't be able to flash incremental OTA's only FULL ROM OTA's will be able to flash. This is because the latest incremental OTA's contains system patch check and it will check for any change in system, if any change is found then flashing will be aborted. Since when you root your device su binaries are kept inside system and that will change the system partition so which ever root method you follow you will not be able to flash incremental OTA's. Please avoid such questions related to this in the thread.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which version of MIUI supports this method?
Ans: This supports all the available MIUI versions including MIUI 8. This works for CM/AOSP roms but since those ROMS come up with prerooted you don't need this method.

2. Where is SuperSu.zip located?
Ans: Please follow the screenshots I have added to find the location of SuperSu.zip and you don't need to keep a separate SuperSu.zip in your SD card.

3. Whether this installs TWRP?
Ans: No it doesn't install TWRP, read the Title again, this will only boot into TWRP for flashing super su.

4. Can I use the Root.bat for flashing any other files using the temporary TWRP?
Ans: Yes you can use it as Temporary TWRP without installing it on the phone, everything supports including xposed. If you have a zip file to flash then put the zip file in SD card and run Root.bat and install through the recovery.

5. How I will go to TWRP recovery?
Ans: You won't be able to got TWRP Recovery since it is not installed, check the Title clearly!!

6. After running the Root.bat nothing happens in the phone or Phone is not recognizing?
Ans: Your PC/Laptop doesn't have the required drivers, if still facing any issue then go through this,

Fix ADB device  - Unauthorized/waiting for device/Offline errors!!
(Source: Xiaomi MIUI Official Forum)

7. Whether I get OTA after following this method?
Ans: You will receive OTA's but you won't be able to flash incremental OTA's but still you can flash Full ROM OTA's.

8. If it doesn't support incremental OTA why it is mentioned in the Title that No OTA Break/Issue?
Ans: OTA Means On The Air updates and it doesn't means only incremantal updates are OTA's. With this method you will still receive OTA's and you can flash the Full ROM OTA's without any hustle and no need to edit those updater script also. Just need to download the Full ROM OTA and rest the device will do.

Final Note: Here after if I found any similar questions as mentioned above I will be neglecting those questions and if you have any issue's or doubts other than these then you are free to ask in this thread.
