Earlier, we shared ‘How to root Xiaomi Mi 3 Indian version’ easily by installing the necessary files through Updater, both for rooting and unrooting. Perhaps, if you’ve updated Mi 3 or Mi 4 to MIUI v6 Developer ROM (based on Android 4.4.4) then you might be looking to root your MIUI 6 device. Well, that’s not required as MIUI developer ROMs are rooted by default! But the root permissions aren’t provided to apps by default. Though, one can grant root access to an app through the Permissions app but that’s pretty annoying in MIUI 6 as there are 5 pop-ups, each with a timer of 5 seconds. That means, you need to wait for 25 seconds before you can grant root permissions to an application. Annoying and time consuming, isn’t it?

A while back, the infamous Android developer Koush released the ‘CyanogenMod Screencast’ app for Android 4.4.1 devices running CyanogenMod 11 custom ROM. The Screencast app allows you to seamlessly capture a video recording of your Android phone screen and microphone. The record screen feature is really useful for developers to showcase their app through a video demonstration or in case you want to give a video walkthrough of the device interface. Though, Android 4.4 KitKat supports screen recording functionality but it is not available out of the box; requires installing Android SDK and then run several commands to do the needful.
