    I have redmi 2 prime global with MIUI v LHJMIDG (lollipop). With which zip file do I have to flash? The New Redmi Global Root Enable Zip? Or the Redmi 2P Lroot enable (.zip)?

    1. Devendra says:

      Hi Hudy, Redmi 2P Lroot enable (.zip) will work.

      1. vishal says:

        What will happen if I use global root enable zip instead of redmi 2pl root enable

        1. Devendra says:

          Not sure, but the only worse thing is your device will be soft-brick. But that can be solved easily.

  2. Vivek Awasthi says:

    This file is not working with MIUI 8.Please upload root file that works for MIUI 8.

    1. Devendra says:

      Mention your phone varient, because root file are different for prime and non-prime and same with lollipop and kitkat rom.

    It is possible that the file you mentioned works for me xiaomi redmi 2 pro, miui version STEADY(LHJMIDG)
    Since I could not do root, I would like to know if it works or not .. since I could not find the file

    1. Devendra says:

      The “Redmi 2P Lroot enable (.zip)” will work fine. though, In case, I’ll recommend the Computer method to root your redmi 2.

  10. Surajit says:

    I have a redmi2 (not redmi2 prime) with miui 8 ( MIUI | Stable). I have rooted my phone previously when there was no prime version of this phone. But after getting MIUI 8, my SuperSU is not working and throwing a message that “There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it. This is a problem! If you just upgraded to Android 4.3, you need to manually re-root.”
    And my android version is 4.4.4 KTU84P.
    Which zip file should I choose to re-root my phone? Can you help?

    1. Devendra says:

      Hello, You might need to flash either one of the listed zip file, If you’re not sure, follow the guide to root redmi 2 with a computer. Links already in this guide.

  11. ishu says:

    my device is redmi 2 prime miui lollipop …i tried 4-5 times to root my device with Redmi2PLroot file by updater app …but root checker says that root access is not properly installed on this device… and also there is no supersu installed ….plz help

  12. Pradakshana says:

    I followed the process as mentioned, the Super Su app is on my phone , but all my apps are are still on internal memory, and new downloads are not asking for permission. please help.


    1. Devendra says:

      @Pradakshana: Why’d not apps will be any other place? Only apps that need root permission will ask for it, for Example: Greenify will ask for root permission. And you can use an app like Link2SD to move installed apps to SD card.

    2. Devendra says:

      It is supposed to work, unless your bootloader isn’t locked.

  20. Gautam Agrawal says:

  21. sujit says:

    hello devendra, i’m using Redmi 2 with MIUI 8.2 Global i want to root my phone to move apps to mem card. please advise i should do it via pc or phone. thanks so much.

    1. Devendra says:

      The PC method is best, however, MI is locking the bootloader with the New MIUI ROMS. Ensure you’ve unlocked your bootloader in order to root your phone.
