Notes About Xiaomi Mi Devices:


Some Xiaomi Mi devices have bootloaders that require additional steps to unlock before you are able to flash custom images. This typically involves using MI Unlock Tool to apply & wait for certain time period to have your device unlocked.
You will need to follow the steps on Xiaomi's MIUI website in order to unlock your device.
Understand that unlocking your device will wipe all of your personal data, settings, and apps from its memory.

Current and past versions of TWRP can be found at one of the mirrors below:

This device uses Android Verified Boot (AVB)


This means that installing TWRP or swiping to allow system modifications will prevent you from being able to boot. To bypass AVB's boot prevention, you will have to disable it or install a custom ROM that ships with disabled AVB.

To disable AVB via fastboot, grab the vbmeta image from the ROM you are on, and flash it with the following command:

fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

AVB should be now disabled on your device.

Fastboot Install Method (No Root Required):

You will need the platform-tools from the Android SDK on your computer. Download the platform-tools as per your operating system.

Windows users will need proper drivers installed on their computer. You can try the simple FWUL adb/fastboot ISO or the Naked ADB drivers or the Universal ADB drivers if you don't already have a working driver installed

On your device, go into Settings -> About and find the Build Number and tap on it 7 times to enable developer settings. Press back and go into Developer Options and enable USB debugging. From your computer, open a command prompt and type:

adb reboot bootloader

You should now be in fastboot mode.

Download the correct image file and copy the file into the same folder as your platform-tools. Rename the image to twrp.img and type:

fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

fastboot reboot

Note many devices will replace your custom recovery automatically during first boot. To prevent this, use Google to find the proper key combo to enter recovery. After typing fastboot reboot, hold the key combo and boot to TWRP. Once TWRP is booted, TWRP will patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. If you don't follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.
