Root Redmi 4X Device – The Right Way

How to root Redmi 4X on China / Global Stable ROM

  1. Download Platform-tools (adb / fastboot) and unpack the archive into an empty folder on your PC or laptop.
  2. Download this archive and unpack it into the same folder with the adb / fastboot files.
  3. Boot your device into the fastboot mode (turn it off, hold down the “Power” button and “Volume Down”, after the vibration signal, release the power button and wait for the fastboot logo to appear).
  4. Connect Redmi 4X to a PC / laptop.
  5. In the folder with the adb / fastboot files, start boot_twrp.bat and wait for the TWRP launch. TWRP will not be installed, only loaded for a single time. Confirm system partition modification if TWRP asks for that.

  7. Disconnect your device from PC.
  8. In TWRP menu press “Install” and select SuperSU archive and select “Reboot after install” option. Wait until installation process is finished.
