Please report any issue you have found using this TWRP recovery.

Known issue: will be overwritten by official system/recovery (seems fixed in 20170712)
but MIUI refuse to boot up if even 1 file is changed in /system

It's TWRP as the title stated. LineageOS for MAX2 is still in develop. Mega was too slow for me
The title say TWRP, but OP says ROM?

For this part "Known issue: will be overwritten by official system/recovery". In what situations will this version of TWRP recovery be overwritten?
Thanks in advance

When official ROM booted. no time to resolve this problem for now

I've uploaded the wrong TWRP image, if anyone's trying it please re-download

Hi,
Me, too, tried several time to install twrp
but at all time when I reboot on recovery mode
I find the Mi-recovery 3.0 instead of twrp.
Edit:
I added one step in between and it worked.

I have some OTG problem (seems to be mailfunctioning) I tried to see if it will work from TWRP, but it doesn't!

Can someone confirm it works on his Mi Max 2 (and this twrp).

Thanks in advance.

I don't have a USB-C OTG cable, so I can't test it... It should work, but if you say it doesn't then I will look into it.

Thanks for the feedback!

Guys those of you who are using Los please install this app and let me know which features are enabled in Los? In miui only exposure control is enabled. Even though camera api 2 is enabled on this device.
