Basically I have rooted my old Redmi Note 4 but that was past guarantee so I did not care that much.
My current RN 8 Pro is still 1 year in guarantee so I literally do not have the balls to do it on my own.
Is there any good soul who would help me out with rooting it, pretty please? Thanks very much in advance

btw. I do know stuff about Unlocking Boot Loader, installing TWRP trough Command Window and Flashing Magisk...that should be potentially enough but as I said above no balls and do not want to F things up and brick it.

Ty for responding. I read that but Im still not sure about what TWRP use on my phone (im not sure if i have to use special one or just latest version) and because I want to only root my phone Im also not sure, if I need to get a different ROM or I can do that on this STOCK ONE I have.
I bought my RN 8 Pro in EU. Im gonna try to give you more information about my phone, if you would be able to link me TWRP what I need and other files to root it...that would be awesome (its not like i cant read or im lazy f**k, its more like i dont want to F things up).

Version of MIUI: MIUI Global 12.0.5; Stable 12.05.0(QGGEUXM)

I flashed TWRP recovery once again, then I went for "adb reboot recovery". This is what happened after I used "adb reboot recovery" (attached picture). There is no sign about TWRP. What am I doing wrong? I literally followed the guide the flash of the recovery TWRP is successful. Is there any chance that Im flashing wrong TWRP recovery? Or that Im doing it on stock ROM? Usually its problem between chair and keyboard but I dont know :-/.

So Ive tried to boot TWRP through after flashing it with "fastboot boot twrp.img". It went through but it booted like normal so I ended up in system like when you turn on your phone normally.

Anybody, anything please? :(
First: what version of miui?
If you're on miui 12.5 this method will cause reboot.
If your phone is < 12.0.X its okay.
It looks like flashing recovery worked.
Instead of trying to adb reboot recovery after flashing recovery try this:
- 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.

First you need to enter recovery, i think you didn't flash boot.

Follow the method below exactly.
Original post and files can be found here.

If error occurs..

1. Go to Minimal ADB and Fastboot in C: of your PC. Open Fastboot folder and Press Shift+Right Click and Select Open Command Window Here at the CMD type fastboot devices and enter (check if it's recognized the device).

2. Enter the following commands: fastboot flash boot boot.img and Enter then fastboot flash recovery recovery.img and Enter. We have flashed clean boot and TWRP.

3. Disconnect the phone from the PC, hold the Power button as the screen goes blank immediately hold Volume + the TWRP splash screen will appear and disappear still hold the button when the TWRP splash screen appears a second time release Volume +. The recovery_fromboot.p file is already deleted earlier.

5. Go to Mount in TWRP check data, system, vendor, nvdata and now you can decrypt DATA by formatting in TWRP Wipe-Fotmat Data, write yes and swipe.

6. Disconnect the phone from the PC, hold the Power button as the screen goes blank immediately hold Volume + the TWRP splash screen will appear and disappear still hold the button when the TWRP splash screen appears a second time release Volume +. If Chinese language change to English. If TWRP will ask you the password (this means that there is DATA encryption)click on CANCEL and get to the main screen.
We go to the mount, put check on data, system, vendor, nvdata and MicroSD card (if the phone has a memory card).
Press home to return to the main screen Choose Advanced-File Manager item >system_root / system / folder at the bottom there is a recovery_fromboot.p file delete it.
Go back to Advanced and select Close AVB2.0 and flash the archive with a swipe to the right.
Again, we go along the Advanced-File Manager path in the root, look for the supersu folder in it, select the SuperSu_installer.zip fileand flash it with a swipe to the right. This is an archive from Magisk_19.4 it will patch boot. The firmware of this archive should go WITHOUT a single error, all lines should be white and at the end of DONE. If everything was done without errors in the TWRP select the Reboot-System. The first boot will be a little long and Don't Panic when boot up check the Magisk Manager>Settings>Update Settings>Stable Channel.

My current ROM is MIUI Global 12.0.5; Stable 12.05.0 (QGGEUXM) and I think I just found it here on this link:
https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/miui/begonia/stable/V12.0.5.0.QGGEUXM/
Can anybody experience confirm that Im suppose to copy out the boot.img out of it and then copy&paste it into Minimal ADB and Fastboot in C: of my PC and then going for the "fastboot flash boot boot.img" as the last msg from Donkyshot says?

Thanks. I used the boot.img and I was following the guide which "donkyshot" sent. But I got stucked right after I did those commands in command Window. I disconnected the phone went for the power button hold and then when it was blank I stopped holding power button and I started holding the Volume+ button. The phone was bootlooped on Xiaomi logo...I was waiting several times but nothing. At the end I had to flash the phone with stock ROM I downloaded through MiFlash...I really dont know what I was doing wrong.
