Go to reply no.
Hello,

I have just purchased a Redmi 2 from China.
I have been trying to install the global rom without success.

I have tried both the system update method and recovery update method following the instruction on the flashing guide but both methods I end up updating to 98% and then it shows 'update.zip failed' - 'Error applying update'

To make sure I have the correct Rom file I downloaded the from http://en.miui.com/download-261.html#371 several times to make sure the file was complete. However still unsuccessful to install the Rom.

I installed MiPcSuite to try the fastboot method but when in Fastboot mode MiPcSuite states 'device not recognized'.

Please help!

Hi DevMikko,

Yes it is the 2GB, 16GB version.

Hi,

The 2GB version is currently only available in China, thus there is still no global rom support.

You can try to flash this:
http://www.miui.com/download-273.html#381

In installation just select English, then just reinstall Google Apps.
Use reply so I would be notified.

Most of the google apps like gmail and YouTube require google play services. When google play services is installed it can't even be opened and keeps crashing. Doesn't look possible for me to use this phone.
