Hello guys,
I am here with a glad news that now you can enjoy TWRP and SuperSu without sacrificing your incremental OTA's. Yes! Now you don't need to download the full ROM to flash in TWRP in our beloved Redmi Note 3 SnapDragon . This is because MIUI China Forum member BY~XM compiled a new TWRP with inbuilt feature to flash incremental OTA's. So all credits goes to BY~XM for his awesome work and please thank him on his original post. So let's get started.


Pre-requisite
  • Redmi Note SD version
  • Unlocked Bootloader
  • Common sense
Steps
  • Downlaod the Flash folder from here.
  • Run the Flash.bat
  • Now phone will boot to "ZCX TWRP"
  • Follow the images to set up the TWRP initially
  • Now you can flash SuperSu and incremental OTA's without any hustles. Use the SuperSU option under Advanced option for flashing SuperSU.





How to update Incremental OTA via ZCX TWRP?

[SIZE="3"]
1. Reboot to ZCX TWRP.
2. Go to Settings and select "support MIUI OTA".


3. Flash the full rom of the current version [Mandatory]. It will automatically back up system and boot for the OTA survival.


4. Now reboot to system and check for any update, when update releases, download it and press update.


5. Automatically device will reboot to TWRP and OTA flashing will start, this time the backed up system and boot will be flashed and thus patching will happen and your device will be updated.


Downlaod the instruction PDF from here.
Note: Step 1 to 3 to be done only while installing TWRP afterwards no need to follow those steps, when an update releases you need to follow from Step 4.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I am getting Error 7 while flashing incremental OTA?
Ans: If you already rooted your device or you used anyother TWRP you won't be able to use this recovery for flashing the OTA's. You should install this recovery in a factory ROM. Steps to follow,
1. Flash the latest beta through fastboot method using Mi flash tool.
2. Unlock bootloader if it is relocked (usually this happens when you flash rom from Lollipop to Marshamallow)
3. Now put your device in fastboot mode and connect to the PC.
4. Run the flash.bat and go to settings and tick the "Support MIUI OTA" option. Take a back up of your EFS,MODEM and Persist if you don't have one.
5. Use the SuperSU option under advanced option (refer the images above).
6. Now use your device as normal, when an OTA update releases, just download it using the OTA and flash using updater/TWRP.

Q. I am getting error in fastboot mod or while running Flash.bat?
Ans: Ensure the device is in fastboot mode (Press Volume up + Power button) and make sure that you have installed the drivers (or Install MI FLash tool).

Q. Can I install xposed, Viper, blah blah..?
Ans: Yes! You can install anything but make sure that you use this recovery for flashing the zip files.

Q.Couldn't Restore back-up through this recovery?
Ans: Please untick firmware while selecting the restore option.
Note: Always it is advised to backup your EFS,MODEM and Persist partitions before flashing any zip files.

Q.Is this recovery can be used in any ROM?
Ans: Yes! You can use this recovery in any ROM.

If you have installed TWRP only and not root, then also MIUI incremental OTA fails. I think Supersu install systemless on MIUI 8 (Android M based) so it can be survived after OTA update. Xposed framework may be need to install again. May be not. Needs to check once next incremental update comes.
