Pre requisites

  • Your Xiaomi Redmi 1S must be rooted. Check out this link to know how to do that.
  • You must have a custom recovery installed, like TWRP or CWM.
  • Your phone must be charged over 80%.
  • Some common sense and ability to follow instructions.


With that done, let’s get this show on the road.

Step 1

Press the volume up and power buttons simultaneously till the TWRP recovery screen shows up. Take a backup of your current ROM. This backup is very important if anything ever goes wrong.


Step 2

Go to the install option and navigate to the folder containing the ROM. Install the ROM.


Step 3

Go to the Wipe option and perform the basic wipe.


Step 4


Reboot into system.


The first boot may take some time around 10 minutes. So don’t worry too much if it takes a tad bit too long to boot up.

        I will agree on that with you. RIL is not easy to fix. Mokee has also released History version of KitKat for Redmi 1s so I think Lollipop is just couple of months away.
