Hi, I just purchased a new Redmi 1s from flipkart.
I am wondering would it be a good idea to try out KXDCNBF24.0 ?V5? (Xiaomi Mi 4 Stable ROM) on my new device.
What I am worried is if it fails, would be I be able to do facotry restory to get the phone backup again & how ?
Why you want that and specific reason. And if am not wrong you can’t use the Mi 4 rom on your Redmi 1s.
