I take no assurance that this will work for everybody.. Do at your own risk.

Take Full Backup of your phone, contacts, SMS and all your internal storage files.

1. Settings-> About Phone-> click 5 times on MIUI version - This will enable developer options.
2. Settings-> Additional Settings > Developer Options > Mi Unlock Status -> add account here

If you get any error, logout your mi account and login again and repeat step 2.

3. Settings-> Additional Settings > Developer Options > Check on OEM unlocking
4. Install adb driver. - > https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588979
5. Download MiFlash unlock > https://en.miui.com/unlock/download_en.html
6. Boot Redmi 6 pro to fastboot mode (Power off > wait 5 sec > Press Vol Down - > Power on)
7. Run MiFlash Unlock (Run as Administrator).
8. Sign in the same account which is logged in this device.
9. Unlock (This will erase all your data, Everything on Internal storage)
10. After unlock, Device will reboot.
11. Complete the setup, If you have find my device ON it will ask the password
12. Boot Redmi 6 pro to fastboot mode (Power off > wait 5 sec > Press Vol Down - > Power on)

I think it disables encryption in twrp so you don't have to do the factory reset. Anyways I did without this zip. Unlocked bootloader, fastboot flashed twrp, fastboot booted twrp. Made factory reset in twrp. Flashed twrp.img in twrp (just in case). Wiped dalvick, cache, data, internal storage and flashed my desired rom (miuipro). Of corse I used memory card to make this process easier.

Yeah it worked for me as well, dident use the zip at step 14. Just fastboot boot twrp, flash to recovery partition, factory reset wipe. (data, cache & dalvik) and then flash rom of choice.
Thanks a lot!

Bit noob here, how can I flash the zip to disable encryption when I'm not able to read my internal storage after flashing twrp through fastboot. So basically I'm not able to flash twrp. Do I need to buy a sd card for flashing twrp, no other way? :crying:

Well. Noobs should read first before post. Read at least the post bofore yours.

Noob read the first post as well the post above but pros didn't understand what noob is asking. Without sd card can we do this? as I'm not able to read internal storage after flashing twrp image, also we need to format internal storage to disable encryption and obviously that deletes the twrp.img file. So my simple question was can I flash twrp without sd card? If yes please tell me how, as I am noob. Thank you.

Put twrp on internal storage.
Flash twrp with fastboot:
Fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Fastboot boot twrp.img
In twrp flash img again (just in case) to recovery partion.
Then factory reset in twrp or flash disable-encryption zip. Reboot recovery.
Put your rom from pc to twrp via mtp (you can do this along with twpr.img if U will flash disable-encryption zip). Twrp should work in mtp mode. And then flash it with necessary wipes.

    Why download that wierd zip at stage 14 and not just flash TWRP.img file to recovery partition? :S

    14th step for disable encryption, otherwise twrp ask password.
