When buying on Taobao, the only shipping option is to "Contact seller for price". "Global Consolidate and Shipping" option is grayed out.
"Taobao Global Direct Shipping" option is not listed.

Tried other sellers and it is the same.

Can anyone who purchased Mi Pad 2 successfully from Taobao advise?

Thanks.

ship for me means you do your own shopping (plus sign up etc) and send it to 65dg in China.
buy for me means they charge 8%, but you only need to give them the URL and pay.
My experience with 65dg was that my old tablet needed to RMA, and I asked them to RMA for me that means contacting seller, shipping there and back. For S$13.

For gapps, do you need root to install the framework? It's normally installed at custom ROM recovery level (which miui doesn't have). The global ROM comes when the product is launched globally.
Should go to http://en.miui.com to find out more on such issues.

Since buying from CN means no warranty, might as well buy other brands.
www.zol.com.cn is CN's CNET, can go read up. I bought an iFive mini3 Retina about 2 years back for $150 USD, fantastic build and value, with Google suite.

Happy user of MI pad 2. Managed to install playstore after flashing to miui 7 developer rom, following the instructions n download link shown in YouTube video The casing with magnetic lock is very similar to ipad casing, with auto wake and sleep function.

Found a link that that is a pre-sale of mipad 2 for win10 with all the spec.

http://www.tinydeal.com/xiaomi-mipad....html?dp=T0101


The spec looks good with a new processor and more power (2w) efficient chipset. Looking forward to get my hands on it.

1) can you share the youtube link for the rom and installation of playstore?

2) is it worth taking the risk of buying a parallel set w/o warranty? Worried about dead pixels and DOA

Yes, normally it will be safer not to jump in to those early production set.
