Q&A
Does TWRP from that chinese forum presist after flashing ?
No. Phone will go back to original RECOVERY after 2nd restart.

Does that TWRP is functional with REDMI NOTE 8 PRO ?
Some functions may work, some not.
Installing root with this TWRP will cause bootloop.

When something go wrong....
If you end up with BOOTLOOP, for any reason ( Magisk etc. )
Just flash boot.img from FASTBOOT + RECOVERY+BOOT and bring your phone back to life.
This boot.img was extracted from firmware linked above.

Command : fastboot flash boot boot.img

Why with TWRP? We can't use MI flash?

---------- Post added at 06:59 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:58 PM ----------

I am download MI global rom, and want to flash it instead if my EU rom that I have.
I try to unlock bootloader but must wait 52 hours more..
But I wanted to do it with Mi flash tools..can I do that?


Yes, I have also done it with Mi flash tools.

Are you using the note 8 pro?
If yes, then it is fully supported by mi flash? I think it's the safest way to flash stock rom right now because you don't have to unlock the boot loader just to flash global or china rom.
I think that you have to unlock the BL first before you can access fastboot flashing, even with mi flash.l

Unlock bootloader before use Mi flash. Trust me. You don't want to resurrect phone via adl mode

I guess that Magisk just does not support our phone yet.

I use MIUI 11 9.10.17 (MiuiPro edition) for Redmi Note 8 Pro. Magisk work without problem (19.3). Some screenshots for you (Greek Translation by Spiros Kaparos) in attachment.

Hello everyone,
I recently decided to have a go with swapping from Chinese ROM to Global ROM.

Command : fastboot flash boot boot.img

Personal note :
It may be possible to flash that chinese TWRP permanently, by replacing recovery.img in firmware images.
And flash it with MiFLASH.

Does the TWRP and Magisk required to flash the global rom? Or if i flash your files via Mi flash it will flash only Stock Global Rom?
