so, just unlocked my redmi note 8 (ginkgo)
then install TWRP (orangefox Recovery)

still on stock ROM, no problem installing magisk
all fine and dandy
but, I want custom rom!

downloaded some custom rom : PE, Crdroid, Potato and Xiaomi.eu
formatting data, then installing the custom rom

NONE of them are working
phone always boot back to twrp
it goes like this : Xiaomi logo (unlocked) -> blank screen for 2 sec -> Xiaomi logo (unlocked) -> twrp
never boot to OS / System

this is just weird...
anyone have any suggestion / idea about this problem ?

Twrp > Wipe > Format data(don't go to advanced) after flashing custom rom(format not wipe)

Go to Manage Partition -> Data -> Fomat Data then reboot. I encountered the problem for the first installation, too.

Format data after installing ROM
TWRP-> WIPE -> FORMAT DATA-> TYPE yes -> SWIPE

This will work.
