Hi all. What recovery should i install between latest versions of this two: orangefox recovery or twrp ? I want the most stable one. There is also the pitchblack recovery but i don't know much about it. Now i'm stock miui V13.0.4.0.SJUEUXM but i'm waiting for bootloader to be unlocked and then i want to install a custom recovery and rom. What 13 rom should i use; what's most stable one, if you guys can tell me ? Thanks.
Try latest OF or TWRP 3.7.0_12 and go with Pixel experience 13 plus edition. Powerful and stable too.

I am currently using Android 11 and would like to be able to upgrade to Android 12 without losing my data, is there no version of OrangeFox compatible with Android 11 and Android 12 at the same time so I can upgrade without losing anything?

Thanks in advance

    @DarthJabba9 How's the Android 12 ROM's compatibility, can they be decrypted yet?
    Nope. Android 12 encryption is quite problematic, and there is much work to do before recoveries can decrypt it properly. There is a hack that means that one or two devices can now be decrypted (only if there is no password/PIN) - but vayu is not one of them.
