Works with:

- Xiaomi Redmi Note 9
- Xiaomi Redmi 10X 4G


If you are using MIUI V12.0.5.0 or higher, TWRP V11.0.4.0 will not work.






(Tested on V12.0.5.0 and V12.0.6.0).

Good luck.

I got my redmi note 9 10 days ago. I was so stupid to run an update and I really do not know which version it was on but it updated to 12.0.9. On this version I have been trying to install twrp to no avail. fastboot boot recovery.img does nothing either I just the xiami revevery.
So after some struggeling I flashed back to 12.0.4 and after that tried to install twrp again (the TWRP V11.0.4.0 version) but still the same effect. I managed to install magisk and now I am root but the mu ui does not work with edXposed/gravitybox and I really need to be able to split the volume of alert messages and incoming calls and like to config my navbar etc. I tried custoMUIIzer and it has an option to show the notificaiton value but they are still linked. I do not get calls much but if I get them they could be really important. I get 100's of nitofications a day . sometimes 500 (like monitoring altets) and they need to be off or very quit most of the day. I managed to fix this on my stock android 9 phone using edxposed/gravetiybox but xiami ignores every thing. Also saftynet and magisk fail too.

So I might aswell try lineage os or the pix experience. Maybe Xposed works there. If I need it al all.
But I really like twrp to work so I can flash those zip files using twrp.
Can it be that I have a differend hardware version or something?
I also red about bypassing EDL via python? But that was needed to flash on older rom and I am really running 12.0.4 now.
Should I still try that EDL by pass trick?
What else could I be missing?
I seems very typical that a fastboot boot recover.img does not even work for 1 time. It should load that image from my pc and boot from it right?

Why google decided that we can not have seperate volumes for incomming phonecalls and general notifications is beyond me. It was posible in android 4.4 and lower. How much would it hurt them to make it a configuration option in the settings.

I am thinking more and more to have a very small and simple phone for phone calls and my banking app. If only we culd run that in an emulator.

Sorry again. After updating edXposed to EdXposed-v0.5.2.2_4683 custMIUizer started to work. (after reboot)
I thought I had the latest since I just installed it via magisk. So now I actually can set different volumes :) Happy again. Now how to get rid of the rounded corners and how to get a black background behind my nav buttons...

But it would still be nice to get twrp working.
