Hi Shubham Tiwari,
Sorry for the delay in the response. Soon we make guide on root process of Redmi note prime. Stay tuned.
I´m really satisfied with my redmi 3S… but, I don´t like that being consulted to join to a Mi Account. That my reason for trying to root my smartphone… i.e.: When I try to watch my pics from cam, default gallery app ask me about login on Xiomi … I´m unable to uninstall that cam and replaced with the google app… teh same with Calendar… Contacts… I use to keep my notes on Google Keep.. but I´m unable to uninstall Notes Mi have by default… and same with facebook apps and modules…
My question is, if finally I follow this procedure using TPRW … will a being able to download OTA as usual??
do you have any tutorila explaining it??
Sorry for the inconvenience you faced. There is not mandatory to use Mi account in Mi devices. But if you don’t use Mi account then you can’t able to access Mi cloud, Mi message, Mi sync service,Mi notes, Mi find phone service, themes, Mi forum services and much more.
If you still want to not use mi services then full wipe reset your phone. and when system ask for Mi account skip this step. now you enjoy your Xiaomi device without Mi services.
For sync you can use google sync services. You can also import your google calendar.

i purchased new redmi 3s prime phone by researching best phone under approx 9k. I feel very good about it now.Thanks xiomi for this phone BUT….
I want to enable root access for this phone now. And thats what troubling me very much.
Its very confusing rooting this phone. I tried all easy ways like iroot/kingroot/frameroot but they are not capable.
1] First thing i understand that i have to take UNLOCK PERMISSION from xiomi to root my device. OK. I did that and i received confirmation also from xiomi.
2] After doing unlock in MIFlash tool its showing “couldn’t verify device ” …..WHAT THIS MEAN????
Please follow steps carefully.
Do I need to unlock bootloader to root Xiaomi Redmi 3s prime using KingoRoot app? And if the process becomes fail then will it brick my phone? If it happens then what should I do to get my phone back normal?
Root and recovery, these are two different things. You can root your device without installing TWRP recovery. You can try with Kingo root. here less chances without bootloader unlocking.
If you face bootloop or brick situation then you can flash fastboot ROM in your device. Before doing anything please first unlock bootloader. So if you face any panic situation then easily handled by you.
