This is not a root method using one-click root tool like KingRoot but this is still an easiest method to gain root access on Mi 4. Moreover, it requires no custom recovery and there is no PC involved. On top of that, it doesn’t even need to boot into any recovery, including default MIUI recovery. The concept is simple, just download the root exploit package and flash it through the Updater app. Well, let’s go read all the steps on how to do this:
How to root
Step 1 – Download the Mi 4 Root package into your phone.
Step 2 – On your phone, launch up the Updater app.
Step 3 – Select Choose Update Package >> then locate the file you’ve downloaded above.
Step 4 – Upon selecting the update-2.zip file, your phone will start flashing the exploit and reboot to complete the process.
Step 5 – Once your phoe has completely rebooted, download and install free SuperSU app from Play Store.
Step 6 – Open up SuperSU app.
Step 7 – First time running the app, it will ask you to firstly update its binaries. Just do so and select Normal.
Step 8 – Once done, simple reboot your phone as normally you do.
Step 9 – Voila! Your phone is now rooted successfully. Enjoy..
