Root without installing TWRP recovery...
Try on your own risk. On chinese version possible bootloop.

1. Download Magisk manager GitHub link or Xda link and install.
2. Download Redmi Note 8 Pro firmware exact same as your current MIUI version in my case BEGONIA EEAGlobal_V11.0.1.0.PGGEUXM. Settings-> about phone - to check your current MIUI version.
3. Unzip downloaded firmware and transfer boot.img to your phone by usb cable or any other method...
4. Run Magisk manager and sellect Install next to Magisk is not instaled in pop up menu select again Install then Select and Patch a File if any give permissions and select your boot.img file (see number 3. post). Patched boot.img file will be in Download folder after patching.
5. Download - [TOOL]Minimal ADB and Fastboot(Windows) link and extract desired location.
6. Copy/move patched_boot.img from Download folder[phone storage] to extracted ADB and Fastboot folder[PC] and rename it to boot.img
7. Run cmd-here.exe file and put following command fastboot flash boot boot.img and then fastboot reboot.


If you want go back to stock boot or got in bootloop flash your extracted stock boot.img with same command in fastboot fastboot flash boot boot.img and you're good to go.

Is safe for installing modules?
If any module make a boot loop, flash stock boot via adb solve problem?
Thanks for all!

This simple guide requires unlocked bootloader and usb/adb drivers to be installed.
Don't do stupid things and push your lucky to the edge... Be careful and wise with system files and Magisk modules. This TUT for Root not for untested Magisk modules or some testing purposes. Coz I'm not responsible for any demaged or bricked phones

1. Download - [TOOL]Minimal ADB and Fastboot(Windows) link and extract.
2. Download Magisk patched boot.img link and copy/move boot.img to extracted ADB and Fastboot folder.
3. Run cmd-here.exe file and put following command fastboot flash boot boot.img and then fastboot reboot.
4. Let device boot and install Magisk manager GitHub link or Xda link.

If you want go back to stock boot.img or got in bootloop here's untouched boot.img from V11.0.1.0PGGEUXM link just
flash with same command in fastboot fastboot flash boot boot.img and you're good to go.

Uploading full rom BEGONIA EEAGlobal_V11.0.1.0.PGGEUXM_32d149b6de_9.0...

Flash stock boot.img then OTA update and again patched boot.img

P.S I hope we will get stable TWRP and life will be simple again

thank you! This must be a pretty safe way to root? Seems like most boot loops is if you try to mess with recoceries (install TWRP)
Do you think it is possible for you to patch Miui11 v11.0.2.0? Just updated.

Or I guess this should work? Method two:

One last question. Is it ok that the boot.img you provide is only 11.32 MB in size? I have checked with Magisk and it is indeed the same when I try to create it myself.

I think it's safe until you don't mess with recoveries stock/TWRP. Can't guarantee about Magisk modules. I will upload system.img if anything went wrong. In case you can flash stock boot and system img'es in fastboot and you good to go This boot.img works on v11.0.2.0 MIUI
