Want to take your Xiaomi smartphone to another level? You will need MiFlash ~ a ROM flashing tool for Xiaomi Android smartphone like Redmi 1S, Redmi Note (3G/4G), Mi 1, Mi 2, Mi 3 and Mi 4. And it also supports Mi Pad as well. It is like Odin3 if you are a Samsung user. You will get what I mean here. ADB Tool, Microsoft MTP & RNDIS and USB Driver come along with MiFlash. Therefore, you got everything ready to install new ROM on your Xiaomi smartphone. By the way, it is for Windows only. Yeah… More and more new Xiaomi devices are added. And MiFlash is still able to support them – Redmi 2 / 2A, Xiaomi Mi 4i, Mi Pad, Mi Note, Mi Note Pro, and more to come…



I promoted Xiaomi smartphone as very good and stable because of long years MIUI ROM development. However, I was wrong about this when I discovered factory data reset bug on Redmi 1S. And then another bug occurs when my mom use it ~ fail to send SMS issue. This SMS bug does not occur every time. It will fail to send SMS when contact number area code is missing. Example, from +60-12-1234567 to 12-1234567 only. You won’t face any issue when it has the full number with area code. Does Xiaomi Mi 3 or Redmi Note also have this SMS bug?
