How to root and unroot Redmi 1S ?


Date: 26 Oct 2014    Group: Computers & Smart Devices    Category: Smartphones   

I would like to know how to root Redmi 1S with the help of PC for safe root.
If possible so also tell me how to root it without PC means by use of Redmi 1S itself only with recovery. Please kindly advise.
I don't want to void warranty of a year hence also advice the process to reverse it back to its original stock condition to regain its warranty.

To 'root' and 'unroot' you should first check whether you have permission to do so or not.

To check permission about 'rooting' you should click on 'Security' and Then click on 'Permission' to know the status. If you find 'Root Permission' as disabled, you should require corresponding settings by file to enable it.

Before doing all these, you should BACK-UP all your data.

Now, go to MIUI official blog or website and find two root and unroot files for Redmi 1S

1. Update.zip
2. UnrootNative_Redmi1S.zip

Now once you are ready with the files and after backup of all, you should do the followings to get permission for rooting.

1. Goto 'Tools' and 'Updater' and select update package.
2. Find and click on 'Update.zip' file
3. Start update and restart. Wait for welcome screen.

Now, you can check for root permission and will be 'Enable' after this process. To check this, you should click on 'Root checker'. You will find this message, "Congratulations, This device has root access"

To reverse it, i.e. to 'Unroot' follow this procedure.

1. Goto 'Tools' and 'Updater' and select update package.
2. Find and click on 'UnrootNative_Redmi1S.zip' file
3. Start update and restart. Wait for welcome screen.

Again check the permission for root and you find the device has disable the root permission after performing unrooting process.
