Redmi 1: SU Binary Installation Fail!

Out of sudden, my rooted TWRP Redmi 1 SuperSU application can’t be update. It shows “The SU inary needs to be updated. Continue?” to be update every time i launch relative applications, there are two selection “Normal” and “TWRP/CWM” but both won’t work. Go through few methods that shared online, no luck at all.


The only way that work for me as below:

i) download latest Redmi 1 Singapore stable rom from official site: JHBMIBL29.0 (V5)
ii) plug-in USB and copy downloaded file to your phone’s SD card
iii) go in to Settings -> About phone -> System updates, press Menu button, “Select update package”
iv) choose click “Update” -> “Start Update“, refer here for print-screen

Now, i have a complete un-rooted Redmi 1 with latest JHBMIBL29.0 ROM. Then, begin the step to root Redmi1 like normal, as below:

For Singapore unit, download two files titled as below from the thread or download directly from dropbox link below,


1) copy two downloaded files above into sdcard2 root
ii) turn off phone, then press “Volume Down” and “Power” button at the same time
2) now, a “Boot Mode” screen with three selection will be display, press “Volume Down” button to select “Recover Mode”, then press “Volume up” button
3) a lying android graphic will be seen, press on “Power” button, then you will enter Recovery mode with a list of selection
4) press “Volume down” button to select “apply update from sdcard2”
5) press “Volume down” button to choose “” and press “Power” button to begin installation of TWRP Recovery
6) After successful installation, it will bring back to Recovery mode main screen, remove battery and wait a couple of seconds
7) place battery back and press “Volume down” + “Power” button, choose “Recovery Mode” in Boot mode screen
8) now TWRP Recovery main screen with menu selections will be show
9) select “Install” from the menu, choose on SD card and Swipe to confirm flash
10) after sucessful flash, select “back” button to main screen, select “Reboot” from menu and click on “System”
11) lastly, restarted into normal mode, then you will see new “SuperSU” icon on your screen and you gained root access

Then, all done with rooted access. Install “Root Checker” to confirm the phone is successfully rooted. If you are using XiaoBaiJingLing / DummySprite as me, remember to allow float window at: Settings -> Apps -> Downloaded -> DummySprite -> check on “Show popup windows”.
