Recently making it’s way down to the Indian shores, the Redmi Note has already made a name for itself by shelling off under as fast as 6 seconds on the occasion of it’s first flash sale in the subcontinent. Meanwhile, with a Mediatek chipset taking the charge, comes a lot of limitations, say Android development for one. However, you can still do a lot of things with this beast for the buck device. You can make the most out of it by rooting it. Rooting is the process of acquiring root access on a Linux based system which provides you the SuperUser rights to execute a special set of commands.
Without much ado, let’s quickly move on towards the rooting process.
How To Root Your Xiaomi Redmi Note:

- Open the Updater app on your device.
- Go to Menu(using the menu button) and select “Update package”.

- As soon as you select the file, the flashing process will start and the phone will reboot automatically once the process has completed.
- Now wait for your phone to complete the reboot.
- Once the phone boots up, Go to “Security”(built-in app) and click on permissions tab.
- Turn on Root access and voila! You’re done!
