I just got a 2nd Hand Redmi Note 3 and have a few questions on how to prepare for install.
Seems i chose one of the more complicated Brands to get running. alot of prior steps even before the install!
I created a redmi account with e-mail and have a user ID which now has bound the phone to that Mi user ID, but the forum app>>all those settings i.e downloads wont let me access those parts of the site, Perhaps because i disabled Mi apps from accessing my phone gps or somesuchhaving not granting it access… Also i havent put a sim card into the phone yet, just all wifi
I went to the xiaomi website link to get approval for unock,seems that part got easier as it took me straight to the download for miflash_unlock-en-3.5.719.27 which i saved to PC.
The e foundation install instructions page says " It is highly recommended to have the latest official MIUI dev package installed on the device, before proceeding with unlock" as the step before says i would need to goto "
Additional settings >
Developer options >
Mi Unlock status"
I have the latest version currently of migui Version: V10.2.1, but not the dev version.
Firsty should i download the DEV rom to pc? if so how to install it from pc? or should i be using the andorid app redmi forums>>downloads section to download and install? ( i do not know if its avaialble thru the phone as it wont let me access those parts) if i am supposed to grant acces to Mi for everything is the devrom available to download through the phone? and whats involved in installing the dev app through the phone.
The dev app is here thu PC web browser
Do i actually need this dev rom, or is there a way to get developer menu up in 10.2.1
Thxs for any assistance.
