Here we are guys... After searching here and there i found some working ways to Root this device without getting bricked. So let's discuss about these :

1. UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER :


- Download the Mi Unlock app to PC, and sign in with your Mi Account;
- Enable Developer Option in your phone by tapping the "Build Number" 7 times
- Go to Developer Options "Settings > Additional Settings > Developer Options
- Enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking
- Aslo add account in Mi Unlock Status (Can be found in Developer Options
- Install all the required drivers (adb drivers, vcom drivers etc.) In your PC [I'll link these below]
- Shut down your phone manually, and hold Volume down key and Power button to enter Fastboot mode
- Connect your phone to PC using USB cable and click "Unlock". In Mi Unlock Tool
- You will be given a specific time (168 hours mostly)
- Wait until that and redo Unlock process
- Woah you have Unlocked your device :)

2. FLASHING TWRP :

- Install Minimal ADB and fastboot on your PC [Link will be provided below]
- Download LR Team TWRP [This work for now, I'll provide link below and will update it after we have another proper TWRP]
- Put that TWRP in the file location of ADB and Fastboot (Right click on Minimal ADB and Fastboot icon on desktop and click on Open file location)
- rename that recovery to "twrp" for convenience (optional)
- Now Connect your phone to PC With USB Debugging on (keep phone on).
- Type
Code:
adb devices
and accept the pop up on phone's screen.
- Now reboot your phone to Fastboot mode
- Type
Code:
fastboot devices
- Your device ID will be visible on Screen.
- Then type
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
- When it's done, Remove cable and Hold Power + Vol. Up when phone starts turning on leave the power button but keep pressing Vol. UP until TWRP splash Screen shows up.
- Done U did it :)

3. ROOTING :

- In TWRP mount System
- Go to Advanced > file manager
- then go to system_root > system and delete "recovery-from-boot.p"
- Go home and again go to advanced and Select "Close AVB2.0" swipe to confirm.
- Go back and select "Install Root"

Yes it does, I just rooted mine, Chinese 8gb RAM with Chinese ROM (no Google) only problem I just found was - can't make a TWRP back up on either storage, says can't make the folder, key unavailable.
I tried a couple of other methods which didn't work, so great stuff for posting here, I don't use Telegram, so it's really helped me, even if it is a duplicate, wind your neck in with the reporting Donkeywhatever!
Thanks OP

I'm glad to hear that it helped you...

Erm the issue i have with ChinaRom is that I cant use my own homescreen launcher... even with root I cant bypass it... so I have to be on Global ROM... but china variant with global rom causes boot loop.... and seeing that you are using the only TWRP available i think the results are the same...

Oo really? Gee can't wait.... :D

My phone came with the Global EU (EEA) version ROM, i have flashed Global (MI) version. Will this method still work or will it cause bootloop? I don't want to brick my device so asking in advance. I was lucky to just get stuck in bootloop with my previous try using a different recovery.

P.S. I used MiFlash Tool and flashed the ROM through Fastboot.

Hey Pritish1998,

I must admit, I was a little leery, after reading all the other threads about installing twrp and rooting and the horror stories they contained. Well, your instructions seemed fairly simple. I followed them EXACTLY... and I lost my ass, everything got wiped, my imei, everything!!!

Totally kidding, everything worked perfectly, I followed your steps exactly as stated. I did not loose any data, nothing, every app, all my downloads, everything is still on my phone. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Also, TWRP, is still installed, didn't get wiped out by the stock recovery. I have root, and oh, I am on MIUI Global, on the United States phone I ordered off of Amazon. More Specifically, MIUI Global 11.0.1.0(PGGMIXM) Android Version 9 PPR1.180610.011. I received the MIUI 11 update about 3 days ago, and was still waiting the 160 some hours out for the bootloader unlock. I just got the bootloader unlocked about 3 hours ago. Went through numerous instructions and posts and this one seemed to make the most sense. I wasn't sure about MIUI 11 working, but fudge it, I thought I would just return the phone if I had a problem, but nope, you're instructions were clear and precise and I followed them to a tee and its working great and I have Magisk and did the safetynet update, and I'm all good.

I haven't updated Magisk to 20.1 though. Didn't want to press my luck.

Thanks so much bro, really, thank you.

Hello good day! I have a question about TRWP:
1) Is it safe to install this TRWP f I am on 11.0.1.0 PGGEUXM?
Has anyone else done it since rom EEA instead of Gobal (MI)?
Thank you

NOTHING WRONG WITH THE ABOVE POST BUT MORE INFORMATIVE. The link you claimed to be original is for the Chinese device only not for the Global. TWRP is also different. Check the files.

No need for caps lock. We can read.
It was initially a double post he just edited it later and changed it to a guide, which is fine.
It's the same procedure like initial Chinese twrp which was and is already posted here.

    Fastboot not working --> solution

    Hi everyone,

    I follow this tutorial and I face a twrp boot loop, I then try to install another TWRP and BAMM ... no more able to access recovery and fastboot. So here's what saved my day and my phone: flashing back Team LR TWRP using adb. YESSSS you've read well :D

    Please share this solution everywhere because that really did a miracle.

    (1) Flash recovery using adb YESSSSS

    Source: blog[dot]matt[dot]wf

    Enable your USB debugging bridge in switch via adb to the terminal:

    ./adb shell
    Then you should be able to find your recovery partion with:

    DEV=$(ls /dev/block/platform/*/by-name/recovery); echo $DEV
    that should output something like this:

    /dev/block/platform/7824900.sdhci/by-name/recovery
    If this is the case you only have to put the recovery.img on your sd-card or the internal storage and you are one command from flashing:

    dd of=$DEV if=/external_sd/recovery.img
    Thats it! No binaries you have to install. No ****ty fastboot udev rules :S

    You can enter into your new recovery system with:

    ./adb reboot recovery

    2) Good now I was able to be back in the LR Team TWRP. From there I removed root and thus magisk, make sure to disabled DM Verify again and a miracle happenned, I was able to boot my phone and Fastboot is back !
