TWRP 3.2.1-0

Here is an updated version of TWRP for Mi Pad 3 (Codename: Cappu). This is the latest update based on TWRP v3.2.1-0 I used TWRP by Multirom and rakomancha's TWRP as base for a working device / twrp tree for our device. I have tested this version for some hours and discovered no errors - but tell me if you find some. If you are looking for a tree for your Mediatek MT8173 / MT8176 device you can use my one as base. You should also have a look at the twrp main-thread for all neccessary changes that need to be made.

What ROM did you flash TWRP over?

Before flashing TWRP (via Method 2), I first flashed the China Stable ROM V9.2.2.0 found at en.miui.com. Touchscreen worked perfect for me

As alfiean already said you should try to flash China Stable or Developer ROM before you flash TWRP. When I flashed an older version of TWRP on my new Mi Pad 3 I mentioned touch problems, too. After flashing China Dev Rom everything worked fine.

Oh, really? Seems like i forgot the flags for MTP. I'll include it in an updated version

Update: twrp-3.2.1-0-cappu-20180306.img - Fixed MTP and added some minor improvements.

Found a bug:
Unable to flash SuperSU-v2.82-201705271822.zip with the following error:
Code:
- Finding boot image
--- Boot image: not found, aborting
Same for other SU versions.
But with twrp-3.1.0-cappu_b4.img (by multirom.me) I've flashed same SU package successfully without any errors.
