Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) is an open-source software custom recovery image for Android-based devices. It provides a touchscreen-enabled interface that allows users to install third-party firmware and back up the current system, functions often unsupported by stock recovery images. It is, therefore, often installed when rooting Android devices, although it isn't dependent on a device being rooted to be installed.

******************************************

Hi there,

This is the official build (beta) based on TWRP sources and xiaomi blobs ... fully working !
(Mi CC9 meitu Edition)

!!! IT'S NOT MY PROBLEM, IF YOU DON'T READ AND FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTION CAREFULLY, IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS, OR IF YOU FLASH SOMETHING OR DO A MANIPULATION I DIDN'T MENTION HERE !!!

Installation Procedure (first time) :

- Unlock your bootloader ()
- Enable ADB from your Official MIUI Developer option
- Plug your USB cable to your Windows PC and type :

adb reboot bootloader

- type then :

fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.3.1-0-vela-final (auto-decrypt).img (rename your image just by twrp.img)

fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

fastboot reboot (keep Vol+ pressed until you see TWRP splash)

- Wait for decrypting ... (if already you set a lockscreen pattern or a fingerprint)

- Format Data (button on the right) + Type "yes" on the keyboard popup

- Reboot

- To boot TWRP from MIUI : reboot menu + keep Volume UP pressed.
- To boot from phone off : power button + Volume UP

TWRP can now auto-decrypt your crypted /data partition so you can make backup with no issue.
This is a big fix that prevent to loose your fingerprint and pattern ...

For MIUI users, you must flash the fstab.zip fix after flashing your MIUI rom !!!

Enjoy !

Update : 2019-11-05
-version : 3.3.1-0
-busybox update
-terminal fixed
-stable and optimized : setting lockscreen pattern and fingerprint on the first boot is no longer needed !

BE SURE WHEN YOU WIPE YOUR DATA, YOU KEEP THE "4 FOLDERS BELOW + .layout_version". THESE ARE YOU ENCRYPTION DATA. IF YOU DELETE THEM, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RESTORE YOUR DATA BACKUP UNTIL YOU FORMAT YOUR DATA AGAIN.

TRICK TO SAVE YOUR LIFE : ALWAYS KEEP YOUR BACKUPS ON THE EXTERNAL STORAGE !!!

!!! This recovery is only for flashing "vela" roms in the future. Don't use it to flash pyxis roms. For this, use pyxis recovery instead !!!

I did all your that you have instructed.
All my data was deleted, due to format data in twrp.
i will continue to test it and let you know.

@gringo80 , what will it take for you to create a global rom for this device?

@gringo80 , you are the best!
you made me so happy.
you dont have to apologize or to explain yourself regarding the ROM . you are great

if you can send me a link to tutorial for creating a rom i will start the learning process

after examining the recovery:
1. it works! it identifies vela official rom
2. can not create twrp backup.
there is an error message after the attempt to backup DATA.
"create tar fork() process ended with error: 255" (attached recovery log and screenshot)
3. when choosing to install from internal storage, I get a list of unidentified folders
when you go up one level, everything is ok with the folders names (attached screenshot)
this is a minor bug
4. when changing things in settings, like "reversed navbar layout"
after reboot the values are changing to the original values. they are not saved.
this is a minor bug

this is not a bug. you have to format data after installing twrp.

from twrp homescreen, go to :
Wipe > Format Data (on the right) > type yes from the keyboard

TWRP don't support backup/ restore from encrypted files/folders. You must decrypt by formatting data !

Reboot to system. Install and config your rom then go TWRP to make backup !

Always put your roms and zip on the External SD Card... or sideload them by adb cmd from your windows PC !
