Edit (17.04.2016):
Oh my MI! I never expected this post to be such a hit on the forums, thank you guys so much for the tremendous support and love. Love you MI & the entire MI community, each one of you.

Edit (25.08.2016):
For those who would like to upgrade to a newer TWRP (TWRP 3.0.2-0), here's the thread by Matru:
http://en.miui.com/thread-318309-1-1.html
(Just install TWRP 2.8.7 that is provided in my tutorial below and then update to TWRP 3.0.2-0 from the recovery itself).


Hey everyone,
This is my first ever thread on MIUI forums and I am posting it because I think a lot of people are having hard time flashing a custom recovery on their phone and even rooting their phones.


Note: This is for Redmi Note 3G (Global) only.
Tested on: MIUI V6 (Global) and it works perfectly!

So, cut to the chase and let's start right ahead.


Thing you'll need (All the files are available for download in a single rar file compresed by me to make it easy):


  • Xiaomi USB Driver or VCOM Driver (Windows 7/ Windows 8/ Windows 10)
  • SP Flash Tool (works on all windows)
  • Recovery(Stock,TWRP,CWM)


Here is the rar that includes TWRP 2.8.7 (with material theme), SP Flash Tool & Root files:
Please note: Everything is properly arranged so you don't have to go lookin for files here and there, don't worry it's really easy.
Also note: NONE OF THIS IS MY WORK, ALL CREDITS GOES TO THEIR ORIGINAL CREATOR(s), THANKS TO THEM, I AM JUST SHARING.
NOTE: THIS INCLUDES SP TOOLS, TWRP & ROOT FILES (39MB):
  Please reply to view this thread.

NOTE: THIS INCLUDES ONLY TWRP & ROOT FILES (12MB):
  Please reply to view this thread.


After you have downloaded all the things stated above, follow the next step:

We first need to install the VCOM drivers on our pc, for that there is a comprehensive guide on this link, follow it, it's really simple.

http://thebroodle.com/android/install-mediatek-mt65xx-usb-vcom-drivers-windows-8-8-1/
(Hint: The download for the VCOM drivers is on there too ^)

After succesfully installing the drivers, we'll first install the custom recovery.

INSTALLING THE CUSTOM RECOVERY - TWRP 2.8.7



First,
Unrar the rar file that I provided, you'll see two folders and one another rar file in it.


Second, Open the SP flash tool folder and open the file flash_tool.exe and you'll see something like in the SS(screenshot) below:

Step one.jpg

Third, Click on the scatter-loading button on the right side and locate the file MT6592_Android_scatter.txt in the TWRP 2.8.7 folder.

step two.jpg

Fourth, You'll see the program load all the scatter files and also self-checked the recovery check-box, if that happens, that means you have been successful so far. Congratulations!

Fifth and probably the last step for custom recovery installation, Now, take your Redmi Note 3G and switch it off and keep it aside for a moment. Go back to the SP Tools program and hit the download button that is on the near-top. Once done that, the program will look for your phone. Connect your switched-off Redmi Note 3G to the PC with a working cable (I recommened the original Xiaomi cable) and when that's done, the program will automatically install the recovery into the phone, you'll see a Yellow line at the button and when all is done, you'll see a green check box, big one.

If you see the green check box, congratulations my friend, you have just flashed the TWRP (according to this tutorial) custom recovery in to your phone. I told you it was simple.
Note: You can check the new recovery by turning on the phone by holding the volume up button ( I know it's volume down button + power button but it didn't work for me, idk why) + power button, and you'll successfully boot into the recovery!
Also note: Phone may take 2-3 minutes to boot up for the first time, no worries.

ROOTING YOUR DEVICE



If you have successfully flashed your phone with a custom recovery, then trust me, this is more simple than that.


First, Connect your phone to the pc and copy the file BETA-SuperSU.rar (it is there in the rar file provided by me) into your SD CARD(external memory), and then switch off your phone and boot into recovery mode.
Hint: Best way to boot into recovery mode while phone is on is go to the updater app, drop down the menu button, and select boot into recovery, and voila!.

step three.jpg

Second, now that you have booted into your recovery mode, for instance, TWRP, follow these steps and you'll be fine:
  • Click Install
  • Click Select Storage and Select sdcard and hit ok
  • Find the file "BETA-SuperSU.zip"
  • Finally, Swipe to Install!

Congratulation my dear friend, You have just rooted your Redmi Note 3G!
Hint: When you turn on your phone, you'll have SuperSU app installed which means, you were successful.


Thanks to all the original creators of the files/programs I mentioned above.

None of the above is my work and I am not claiming any credit for it, either.

Also, I am not responsible for anything that may happen to your phone.



This is my first-ever thread on MIUI forums, please say thanks if I helped.

All questions are welcomed and I'll try my best to answer.



Cheers!

troubleshooting

This post was edited by fbxiaomi at 22:51, Aug-17-2015

testing

--- failed at downloading the recovery.img into the phone

PMT changed for the ROM; it must be downloaded
(http://en.miui.com/thread-78047-1-1.html)

------- can't seem to find a solution :(


----------------------- couple of days later. still not working, however I passed the pmt problem by downloading a different version  of sp flash tools
                                         (see this post on xda: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2650125
)
                           the downloading does now succeed, I get a green flag and reboot, when I then go into recovery, I still find the stock recovery 2.01

                     I tried to follow some other people's advise to download a signed version of twrp, (this post), but the result is still the same.

For those with my same problem:
Someone suggested to downgrade to v5, and reupgrade to v6 with a modified rom where you previously disabled the "install recovery" script. I can't find that post, but I can understand the logic and I believe that could work.
However, some users reported problems in doing so, and last thing I want is to brick my phone while running a rom version that is not yet fully rootable/customizable and in general not fully understood by the gurus, as this one seem to be :(


*********************************************************************************************************
SOLUTION FOUND!
This method worked for me:                     
en.miui.com/thread-141184-1-1.html

As he says, this is essentially
sepneela's method, just explained better :D

***********************************************************************************************************

Thank you to the author of this post too, unfortunately it didn't work for me, but I see many people had it working :)
