It works, decrypts and makes backups as it should. No idea about who created it.
How I installed:
1. Downloaded and renamed to twrp.img
2. Pasted to fastboot folder
3. Opened cmd in folder and typed: "fastboot boot twrp.img"
4. When display went black, I pressed vol up
5.TWRP booted & I decrypted data by typing in my pin.
6. Set langage and time and went to advanced and pressed "flash current twrp"
Violla! Ah, and I produced endorphines...

Twrp is available for 12X now and is also supported by xiaomi.eu as they begun to release recovery (weekly) ROMs for "psyche" ✌️

I'm trying to replicate this, but the command "fastboot boot twrp.img" doesn't work for me:

SDK Plataform Tools>fastboot boot twrp.img
Sending 'boot.img' (196608 KB) OKAY [ 4.301s]
Booting FAILED (remote: 'Unrecognized command boot')
fastboot: error: Command failed

EDIT: I was in FastbootD mode, not Fastboot. Didn't even notice.

Got my TWRP booted and flashed, but I couldn't decrypt my user data. Where do I find my password?

The password is your lockscreen pin. In my case it worked. Be sure you are using Android 12. Decryption in this twrp is designed for A12...

It didn't work, but I used "fastboot format userdata", removed the device from my account and remove password lock, it seems to do the trick.

Now I just getting some "unable to decrypt fbe device" and I don't know what is this. Another thing that's bugging me is this A/B partition thing, I noticed that I can choose which one I want to boot and the changes reflects in TWRP too (when I reboot back to recovery after changing the partition). I'm trying to do a clean flash of global stock rom with TWRP.

Anyway, I'm just trying to figure it how it works now, my main goal is to get my Magisk working with all the safety and play protect checks, to see if can hide my navbar and use third party gestures app, without losing access to Netflix and banking apps.
