Hi everyone,
Apparently, I have to unlock the bootloader in order to root RN4 manually in order to flash the new rom etc etc... why am I stuck at 8.0.5.0.0 global stable?? Tried downloading the ROM and renaming it to 'update.zip' but the updater still doesn't read anything. Anyone know an easier/shorter way? Bought it from Geekbuying a month ago, it said 'OTA updates' but none have arrived.
Thanks a lot :D

Hi,

Based on the information provided, your rom is Unofficial. Your phone is running  on tampered vendors rom,  it has lots of bloatware, adware and you will not available to get OTA updates. To get rid of this, you need to download official fastboot rom and flash it, updater won't work. Find the official fastboot rom here
http://en.miui.com/a-234.html

2.Changing rom will wipe all user data. It's advice to backup bfr proceed to do so.
BACKUP :
i) Setting
ii)Additional setting
iii) Backup and reset
iiii) Local backups
You can backup all data to Mi cloud too.

3.This method works on Locked Bootloader

Thank you! I knew something was wrong with the version, it said in settings 'miui 8 global stable' but then '8.0.5.0.0 MBFCNDG', which is Chinese. So flashing Chinese (old) ROM         --> Global latest ROM won't cause any problems? Also, I don't see any other RN4 MTKs with 32gb rom and 3gb ram. Anything to do with the tampered ROM?
