  3. Now, go to updater app -> options menu -> reboot to recovery. You will renter the recovery mode.
  4. In recovery menu, choose English. (Use volume buttons to navigate and Power button to select).
  5. Choose ‘Apply Updates‘ (or something similar to this). Doing this will automatically update the device using the update.zip file from the SD card.

    Which recovery are you seeing in your Redmi 1S. Have you successfully flashed Philz recovery? If yes, you will be able to see the option I have mentioned here. Or else, you will have to reflash the custom recovery file again!
