I strongly advise for you to install TWRP Recovery, from Team Win Recovery Project. It will make the process much easier. So, download the TWRP_126.96.36.199.zip file, and save it on your PC. Do a full backup of your phone if you want. Now: 1) Go to the “Settings > Developer” options, and enable USB debugging mode. 2) Make sure that your Android battery is full charge or near about 50-70% battery level. 3) Connect your phone to the PC with USB cable and move the TWRP_188.8.131.52.zip file on your phone internal storage - to the folder 'Computer\HM 1S\Internal storage' (root of internal storage, meaning the top most folder). 4) Once the file is saved, disconnect the phone from your PC safely (use 'Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media' from USB icon in Windows SysTray), and go to the menu “Tools > Updates”. There push the options menu in the phone touching the 3 stripes button, and choose “Select Update Package”. Choose the zip file, and hit the Update button. Now the process will start and the phone will reboot. We’re done with TWRP. Now, let’s root it and install Super SU. 1) Download the file update.zip to your PC 2) Connect your phone to the PC with USB cable and move the update.zip file to your phone internal storage - to the folder 'Computer\HM 1S\Internal storage' (root of internal storage, meaning the top most folder). If there’s already one file with the same name, replace it, but renaming the older one first. 3) Disconnect your phone properly from USB (use 'Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media' from USB icon in Windows SysTray). 4) Go, again, to the menu “Tools > Updates”, touch again the 3 stripes button we talked about, and choose the option “Reboot to recovery mode”. 5) The phone will reboot, and enter in the TWRP console. There, choose the Install option, and select the update.zip file in the list. Apply the flash/execute button. It will install the zip file. Go to Home, and Reboot System. 6) After the phone is turned on again, go to the Security icon. Choose Permissions, and enable Root Permission. Go out. 7) Now let’s install Super SU. Move the SuperSU_redmi1s.zip to the internal storage – the same mentioned folder – after connecting via USB cable. Unplug safely. Go again to “Tools > Updates”, and choose – as explained – the “Reboot to recovery mode”. After reboot, again in TWRP, choose Install, pick the SuperSU zip file, and flash/execute it. Go Home and Reboot System again. 8) Theoretically, it’s done!!! Your phone is now rooted. And you should have the Super SU icon in your mobile phone Sent from my XT1022 using Tapatalk MOD note: Unauthorized links have been removed. Please follow forum guidelines.
