    2. Everything appears to work fine, drivers installed, after "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" I get okay for sending and writing. After I type fastboot reboot the phone reboots but then seems to be installing stuff again and after switching off the phone and powering up with volume up it boots into the Mi recovery menu...

      Should I switch the phone off before "fastboot reboot"?

      1. if your phone reboot after you type "fastboot flash recovery recovey.img" means you no longer need to enter the command "fastboot reboot"

        Now try to boot into recovery mode.

    3. Same as UNKNOWN. Everything goes smoothly until typing fastboot reboot command. The phone reboots correctly (I guess it has to reboot) then I switch it off and I switch it on again by pressing volume key up and power button simultaneously but I get the MIUI Recovery Mode. I try to install the SUPERSU.ZIP file from there but I get an error message saying that the file is corrupted. Already tried to replace the supersu file with another one but I am getting always the same error.

      Please help

      1. Try to do once again without "fastboot reboot", and I've been updating files SuperSU, hopefully this can help you

        If that does not work, try to install a minimal ADB and Fastboot here http://beritahuaja.blogspot.com/2015/10/introduction-and-install-minimal-adb.html

        or go directly to the original thread in

    4. Hi for you people where TWRP did not work after install via fastboot, i had same problem, and was also noob in rooting, it's my second device i root sucessfully now.

      It is nowhere mentioned in the tutorials. But you have to reboot to recovery mode DIRECTLY after you install twrp succesfully so if installation is finshed , do NOT reboot your fone with power button, or do not use command fastboot reboot.

      But press directly volume up key and power button!

      This worked for me, i was going crazy over this, but if you do fastboot reboot or just press power button first, the system somehow recovers MIU recovery, and you will never get into twrp.

      Also if you get into twrp, don't worry if it seems to freeze, just press power button, you get locked message, and then the swiping will work after a minute or something, don't panic.

      Also at one time my phone seemed to be bricked after some reboots and new roms. No reaction to usb, or power cable, no rebooting with any button. If this happens, simply hold your power button for about 30 seconds(or more), and you will get some sort of a factory reset of booting system.

      Now running unofficial CM 12.1 rooted on xiaomi mi4c, and happy(only flashlight doens't work, is mentioned in info) But finally got rid of all chinese bloatware!
