Because Manu11 didn't update his thread about the toolkit. I decided to post this to help Mi 4i users that got into trouble with TWRP unable to flash dh.harald's CM12.1

FEATURES
-Root (MIUI only, CM users can enable Root in Developer Options) Working on MIUI7 (thanks to @ss.suryakant95 for testing this out)
-TWRP Recovery
-Stock Recovery (just in case)
-EFS (IMEI) Backup and Restore


DOWNLOAD
(Some users had problems unzipping this ZIP with WinRAR, consider using free alternatives such as 7-zip)
MAIN URL: Click here to download (Please use this download, but if in any case you can't extract, you may use the mirror I provided.)
MIRROR: Click here to download.

HOW-TO
1. Enable Developer Options (Tap MIUI version 7 times in About Phone), and then in Developer Options, enable USB debugging.
2. Have you downloaded the ZIP? No? Download it, now.
3. Extract the downloaded ZIP wherever you like, keep in mind that all files must be kept together.
4. Connect your phone to the PC.
5. Run the Start.bat file.

ATTENTION: Please do a ROOT (I'll assume you're still in MIUI) before you flash TWRP, or you may be brought back into stock recovery. (Thanks to @omerjerk for testing this)

---

UPDATE: This toolkit's TWRP is deprecated (download the newest version here), but if you don't want to hassle with downloading another fastboot driver, you can still download dh.harald's recovery .img file, and copy your downloaded recovery to the extracted toolkit folder, then change dh.harald's recovery filename into twrp.img (UNTESTED)

I'll repack this toolkit with dh.harald's newest TWRP whenever possible.

This toolkit is made by magdag, all credits goes to him.

I can't speak for magdag, the dev. So, this is literally the version that is usable for flashing TWRP.

I don't expect any official support for TWRP. And I prefer CWM, if there's one.

Backup everything (all partitions) except the first in the list.
You may want to use the compression.
The backup should be somewhere between 3.5GB and 5.5GB depending on the options and the data.

You could install ROM Manager (from Koushik Dutta) from the Play Store.
Choose the TWRP as recovery and Unknown Device as device.
Then you can use this to backup with TWRP and it will choose the right options for you.

Just Google it. Seriously. Or go to MIUI Forums and see the options you got there, there should be plenty of MIUI Fastboot ROM since 6.5.6
