Flashing a custom rom on your Redmi 2 requires a custom recovery installed. Since Redmi 2 does not release kernel sources its hard to compile a recovery for this device and hence we will not have any official support. But we have TWRP compiled for Redmi 2 by a gold member from MIUI forum “brigudav” big thanks to him for bringing this amazing recovery for our device.
