phone keeps hanging after installing twrp

Yesterday after installing twrp 3.3.0 on my redmi note 7, my phone (MIUI 11.0.9.0) keeps hanging and freezing randomly.Before it worked fine and smooth but now anytime I open any app or settings menu or even during unlocking the phone, it keeps hanging with a blank screen.I tried factory reset on it, but it still hangs especially after installing a new app. The brightness levels also keep brightening randomly.
The twrp menu works fine, the problem starts after starting the phone to system.
Please help.

Hello everyone, I come from the Redmi S2 where I unlocked the Bootloader with Mi Account, I was wondering if I can use the same account to unlock the redmi Note 7 Bootloader.
Thank you.

Not detected in Fastboot

Hey guys. So I've got a problem with my Note 7. It just isn't recognized by windows or linux when it's in fastboot mode. I can assure you that it is not a driver issue since every other device I've got here works perfectly fine with my setup an I am able to see it in my device manager and with "fastboot devices". Just the Redmi Note 7 isn't working. It works normal when used while turned on (usb-debugging enabled, data transfer standard usb protocoll, bootloader unlock active in developer settings) and I can use adb devices or adb reboot bootloader and everything works fine. But as soon as the phone restarts in either recovery or fastboot mode, windows isn't able to detect the device anymore. There is no "unkown device" or anything in device manager, just nothing. Device manager doesn't even refresh when plugging in or out the phone in fastboot mode, a thing that device manager usualy always does If something is disconnected or connected. It's really weird.

Does somebody have any clue what could be the problem? Maybe the USB Port (altough it works perfectly fine even when transferring data)? Software? A bug? Please help me guys...


Edit: It can't be a driver issue. I have just tested my Redmi Note 5 with the same setup. Everything, including fastboot works like a charm... It has to be the device itself!

Can somebody pleeeeaaase help me?

I'm having a problem, I've flashed TWRP successfully but now I want to install official MIUI 11 EU ROM, however, I've been told it will overwrite TWRP back to their fastboot.

What are my options besides the dumbest bruteforce "flash TWRP, install official EU ROM, then flash overwritten TWRP again, bro"?

Official MIUI overwrites the custom recovery with the stock one every time you boot into system so you have two choices:

1. Use MIUI as is with the stock recovery and install custom recovery when you decide to change ROM
2. Flash MIUI with the custom recovery and then flash magisk before rebooting into system in this way MIUI doesn't overwrites the custom recovery

Now I give up, tried everything, but can't get the phone to be recognized in Mi Unlock, what ever I try, it' just wont work :mad:




same here.. could it be caused by specific ROM version? Anyway, in which ver. were you?

The only two causes I can think of are ryzen cpu or usb 3.0 in both cases seems that using an usb 2.0 hub to connect the device can help. Check this answer:

    Dear Redmi Note 7 user,

    I'm not responsible if anything happens to your device. If you execute these AiO procedures properly then you shouldn't face any problems.

    Before you proceed please back up all your important data and make sure that your phone battery is charged >80%!

    A. Prerequisites:

    1. Disable driver signature enforcement in Windows

    If your computer doesn’t recognize Xiaomi drivers then please disable driver signature enforcement. How to do this please read here: http://en.miui.com/thread-237673-1-1.html

    2. Install ADB and Fastboot tools with drivers on Windows

    How to do this please read here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979

    Restart your computer.

    3. Enable "OEM unlocking" and "USB debugging" in your device

    a. Enable Developer Options in: Settings/About Phone/MIUI version. Click on MIUI version seven times
    b. Now go to: Settings/Additional Settings/Developer Options and check "OEM unlocking" and "USB debugging"

    4. Check if your bootloader is locked

    a. After successful installation of "ADB and Fastboot" enter the fastboot mode by holding together "Volume Down + Power" and connect your device to your computer via USB cable (best would be the original cable).
    b. Go to the folder where you have put the "ADB and Fastboot" and open a command window inside that folder. To do that hold together "Shift + Right Click" on any empty white space inside the folder and then select "Open PowerShell Window Here" or "Open Command Window Here"
    c. Enter the terminal command in command line: >>fastboot devices<<

    If you don't see your device it means that the drivers weren't installed properly or the device wasn't connected properly. If this happens please reinstall your drivers from Point A. 2. or try these drivers here:

    http://xiaomiadvices.com/download-xiaomi-usb-drivers/

    d. If you see your device then enter the terminal command in command line: >>fastboot oem device-info<<

    If your bootloader is locked, you'll get the following status (or something similar):

    …………………………………………………………………….
    (bootloader) Device tampered: false
    (bootloader) Device unlocked: false
    (bootloader) Device critical unlocked: false
    (bootloader) Charger screen enabled: false
    (bootloader) Display panel:
    OKAY [ 0.058s]
    finished. total time: 0.063s
    ………………………………………………………………………

    If your bootloader is unlocked, you'll get following status (or something similar):

    …………………………………………………………………….
    (bootloader) Device tampered: false
    (bootloader) Device unlocked: true
    (bootloader) Device critical unlocked: true
    (bootloader) Charger screen enabled: false
    (bootloader) Display panel:
    OKAY [ 0.053s]
    finished. total time: 0.055s
    ………………………………………………………………………

    5. Request Permission from Xiaomi to Unlock the Bootloader

    a. Create a Mi Account: https://global.account.xiaomi.com/pass/register
    b. Sign to Xiaomi and apply for unlocking https://en.miui.com/unlock/

    6. Connect your Mi Account to your Device

    Go to: Settings/Additional Settings/Developer Options/Mi Unlock status and check "Add account and device"

    B: Unlock the Bootloader

    Unlocking the bootloader will erase all your data! So please back up your data before you unlock the bootloader!

    1. You must enable "OEM unlocking" and "USB debugging" as per point A. 3.
    2. You must connect your Mi Account with your device as per point A. 6.
    3. Download Mi Unlock Tool here: https://en.miui.com/unlock/
    4. Enter the fastboot mode by holding together "Volume Down + Power" and connect your device to your computer via USB cable (best would be the original cable)
    5. Start the Mi Unlock Tool
    6. Enter your eMail and your password of your Mi Account
    7. Connect you device to your computer and start the unlock procedure
    8. Follow the unlock tool instructions until the unlock procedure is finished
    9. Reboot your device

    If you get the message, that the unlocking can be done after 72h or 360h or 720h etc., then you have to wait for that time to pass.

    C: Install the TWRP Recovery

    a. Your bootloader must be unlocked
    b. The official twrp can be downloaded here: https://twrp.me/xiaomi/xiaomiredminote7.html. However the official twrp for Redmi Note 7 is not yet available. For the time being please download the latest unofficial "twrp-x.x.x.img" from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/re...overy-unofficial-twrp-touch-recovery-t3921637 and put it into a dedicated folder in your computer and rename it to "twrp".
    c. Go to the folder where you have put the twrp-file. Now open a command window inside that folder. To do that hold together "Shift + Right click" on any empty white space inside the folder and then select "Open PowerShell Window Here" or "Open Command Window Here"
    d. Enter fastboot mode by holding together "Volume Down + Power" and connect your device to your computer
    e. Enter the terminal command in command line: >>fastboot flash recovery twrp.img<<. Attention: Do not restart your device otherwise Xiaomi's original recovery might overwrite the custom recovery twrp!
    f. Boot your device into recovery (3 possible methods)
    + by entering terminal command in command line: >>fastboot boot twrp.img<<, or
    + by holding together "Volume Up + Power" until you see the MI logo, release "Power" button but keep pressing "Volume Up" until you see the recovery, or
    + by holding together "Volume Up + Volume Down + Power" until you see recovery

    If you only want to root your smartphone, then please continue to point D

    D. Root Your Smartphone

    a. Download latest Magisk from here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445 and put it into internal memory of your smartphone or into the micro sd-card or into on-the-go memory stick
