Normally you’ll need to flash SuperSU package via custom recovery tool like ClockWorkMod (CWM) or Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP). But however, with some little trick, a smart man has managed to build a ready-to-use SuperSU package to gain root on Mi 4 without having to boot into recovery. In fact, this SuperSU package can be flashed directly via MIUI Updater app. In conclusion, this package will cut the hassle of installing custom recovery.
Inspired by what ThawThaw did, one of MIUI Forum members called watchmania has ported the build for Mi 4 device. As what he mentioned, what he had done is just to copy over su binaries and Superuser.apk. Anyway, you can grab the package we have it mirrored in our Europe server below :
