    Also I advice to save backups in external micro SD card if you have one as backups take a lot of space.

    @wicked Thanks! Worked flawlessly again. Quick question, can you provide instructions on how to restore the stock recovery? Do you have the stock recovery image as I don't seem to have it. And could it just be flashed using Odin like the kernel images in the root exploit?

    Thanks for all your help!

    I've tried tis several times and I says it was successful, I'm rooted, but I can't reboot into twrp. It goes to the flash screen and stays there. The Little blue Letters Don't show up either. Any ideas?

    What is your Baseband number. If the last 3 digits are not MDK this will not work.

    So far the ME7,MI1 Baseband have locked bootloader.

    I am currently running mi1 and highly recommended safesrap over any other recovery in my opinion.
    Would have stayed on me7 if I wouldn't have plugged my phone up and let kies update to MI1. O well...at least I am still able to SS!
