I have an xiaomi redmi note 5 rooted: to get rid of the notification system about new updates I've renamed the " Updater.apk " file on root /system/data/Updater , but now the phone in in bootloop. I've tried to rename it back booting from twrp, but after mounted the system partition ( mount /system ) I cannot find the same directories I saw when I was browsing using a root file manager. How can I locate the " Update.apk " file and rename it back on its original name? Thank you

  • I don't know much about Xiaomi phones, but when you are in recovery in /system, do you have /system/app or /system/priv-app? If yes, check the folder 'Updater' in them. – Reddy Lutonadio Mar 24 at 18:18
  • Sorry you are right, the file was on /system/app/Updater. I've renamed to the correct name but the problem persist. I've tried to change the permission but twrp gives me an Error 1. Maybe the system partition should be mounted in a different mode? Maybe I need some privileges to change that file permissions? – Ajeje Brazov Mar 24 at 18:28

    If you have system.img, just flash it. Everything should return to normal. You can download the official ROM (Russian or Global version) of your device here. – Reddy Lutonadio Mar 24 at 18:44
  • Sorry (2) the phone restarted. I think it was not a permission problem, but before to rename that apk, I made a safe copy to the same directory. After deleted the second file the phone restarted, thank you anyway. – Ajeje Brazov Mar 24 at 18:45
