The Redmi K70 Pro is a feature-packed smartphone that has been gaining popularity since its release. With its powerful processor, impressive camera and ample storage, it’s no surprise that many users are looking for ways to optimize their device even further.

One way to do this is by rooting your Redmi K70 Pro, which gives you full control over your device and allows you to customize it in ways that are otherwise not possible. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps on how to root Redmi K70 Pro.

What is Rooting Android?

Rooting is the process of gaining privileged control, also known as root access, over an Android device’s operating system. This allows users to make changes to their device’s software that are otherwise restricted by the manufacturer. 

With root access, users can uninstall pre-installed bloatware, install custom ROMs, and use apps that require advanced permissions.

Rooting your Redmi K70 Pro comes with its fair share of advantages and disadvantages. It’s essential to consider both before deciding to root your device.

Advantages of Rooting:

  • Custom ROM Installation: Rooting allows you to install custom ROMs on your device that might offer a better user experience compared to the stock ROM.
  • Android Updates: Even if your device manufacturer has stopped providing updates, rooting can allow you to update your device to a newer Android version.
  • Incompatible Apps: Rooting your device allows you to install apps that your device manufacturer might not typically support.
  • Custom Kernel: You can flash a custom kernel to your device after rooting, which can enhance your device’s performance.
  • Complete Backup: With rooting, you can take a complete backup of your device, offering a reliable safety net.

Disadvantages of Rooting:

  • Void Warranty: As soon as you root your device, your phone warranty becomes void.
  • Security Issues: Rooting your Redmi K70 Pro may expose it to various security risks.
  • Lagging Issues: It might cause your device to lag, especially if not done correctly.
  • Risk of Bricking: Missing any steps while rooting, there is a high chance that your device might get bricked, rendering it unusable.

While rooting can unlock numerous additional features and capabilities for your Redmi K70 Pro, it also comes with significant risks.

It’s advisable to proceed with caution and carry out extensive research before deciding to root your device.

Step 1: Unlock the Bootloader on your Redmi K70 Pro

Before rooting your Redmi K70 Pro device, you must first unlock the bootloader. The bootloader controls the software loaded when booting up and is locked by default.

I have written a dedicated guide on how to unlock the Redmi K70 Pro bootloader. Please go through that first. The process involves enabling Developer options, connecting to the Mi Unlock tool, and getting unlock permission from Xiaomi.

Step 2: Install TWRP on your Redmi K70 Pro

To enable root access on your device, it is necessary to install TWRP. TWRP stands for Team Win Recovery Project, and it is a custom recovery tool that allows you to install custom ROMs, kernels, and other modifications on your device. Here’s how to install TWRP on your Redmi K70 Pro:

  1. Download the TWRP Image: Visit the TWRP website and download the TWRP image that corresponds to your Xiaomi device.
  2. Prepare the Files: Once downloaded, place the TWRP image in the same directory as your ADB and Fastboot files.
  3. Enter Fastboot Mode: Now, boot your device into fastboot mode. This can be achieved by holding down the Power and Volume Down buttons simultaneously until the fastboot screen appears.
  4. Connect your Device: Using a USB cable, connect your device to your computer.
  5. Open Command Prompt or Terminal: Navigate to the directory where you have adb and fastboot installed, and open a command prompt (Windows) or terminal window (Mac/Linux).
  6. Flash the TWRP Image: Type the following command into the console and press enter:
    fastboot flash recovery TWRP_IMAGE_NAME.img
    Replace “TWRP_IMAGE_NAME” with the actual name of the TWRP image that you downloaded.
  7. Boot the TWRP Image: After successfully flashing TWRP, type the following command and press enter:
    fastboot boot TWRP_IMAGE_NAME.img
    Again, replace “TWRP_IMAGE_NAME” with the name of the TWRP image you downloaded.
  8. Success: TWRP will now boot, and you can start using it on your Redmi K70 Pro.

The successful completion of these steps means that you have successfully installed TWRP on your device. Now, you can proceed with other advanced tasks like rooting or installing custom ROMs.

Step 3: Root your Redmi K70 Pro using TWRP Recovery

  1. Download the Necessary Files:
    • Download the latest versions of the Magisk Zip and Lazy flasher Zip files. 
    • Move the downloaded files to the external storage of your Redmi K70 Pro.
  2. Reboot your device in TWRP recovery mode by pressing and holding the Volume Up + Power button until the boot screen appears, then release the Power button.
  3. Install Magisk:
    Install magisk

    • On the TWRP main screen, tap on “Install.”
    • Locate and select the Magisk installer zip file. 
    • Swipe the slider at the bottom of the screen to flash the file and begin the installation process.
  4. Proceed to flash the Lazy flasher Zip file on your device.
  5. After the flashing process completes, tap on “Reboot System”.
  6. Open the Magisk App. If all checks on the app screen appear green, the installation was successful. If the app is not present, manually download and install it.

Following these steps carefully will successfully root your Redmi K70 Pro using the TWRP Recovery. If you encounter any issues, feel free to ask for help in the comments section.

  • Tap on “Verify Root” on the app’s interface. 

If your Xiaomi device has been successfully rooted, you’ll see a message that reads, “Congratulations! Root access is properly installed on this device!” as demonstrated in the screenshot above.
