Good morning. I'm waiting for gearbest to send me this device https://xiaomi.today/2JE53BD reported by your telegram channel. I realized that the pro version existed only in India What I expect is the 4 / 64 version, how should I behave in this case? Is this also the pro version or just the one with ram 6 gb? Thank you

Hi Stefano, we are dealing with those orders with 7 shipping in May. For a bug an overly optimistic date has been proposed but even if with a little delay the orders will be honored. If you are free to request a cancellation and receive a refund, but if you are not in a hurry I suggest you wait because the price was still very good.

To evaluate it would be useful to know when delivery is scheduled ... But of course it is that gearbest and xiaomi make a great impression. With grossoshop even if more expensive I found myself better
... However, my question was another .. I wanted to know if to do this mod must consider the 4 / 64 version as pro or not

I have a problem, do not install the root, in the end it gives me Failure, aborting ...
Reason? I followed everything step by step and tried SU 2.82 and 2.79

I have arrived at the point where ifelixit should restart the phone in the installed recovery, but nothing happens.
I followed the steps carefully.
How could I proceed? Thank you
