Hello Everyone!

This is a guide on how to root Redmi 2 Prime [Lollipop Bootloader]

Some benefits of Rooting :-

1. You can install custom ROM and custom kernel on your device for faster and better performance.
2. Block Ads in apps with the help of ad blocker.
3. Increase performance and battery life by killing background process automatically.
4.You can use Titanium Backup to restore all of your apps and data.

Note :-

1. Rooting will not void your warranty.
2. Follow the steps correctly otherwise you may brick your device. We are not responsible for any damage to your phone.
3. It can erase all your personal data. So I recommend you to take backup before proceeding.
4. Ensure that your phone has at least 50-60% charged to prevent the accidental shutdown in-between the process.

Yes you will get OTA update but will get error while updating it in Global beta/stable ROM. If you are using china ROM you can easily flash OTA via TWRP (not the above TWRP of course).
I will add that TWRP soon.
