Today I am going to explain you how to get latest version of Android on your Redmi 2 Prime (India Version) [Model 2014818]. This phone is also known as wt88047. I too have Redmi 2 Prime, and yes it is awesome, and I can guarantee you that this is totally working. Your Internal or External Storage will not be formatted, only app data.
Android N or Nougat will be installed but as a custom ROM. You will get CyanogenMod 14 which is again very cool ROM.
Limitation: GPS is not working in this update. And lack of some customizations in settings.
- Your warranty is now void.
- I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, dead cats,
- thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
- YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
- you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will break it! 😛
