You need to flash official TWRP from fastboot then install orange fox .zip from there

Sorted
11. Select “Install”, then find and select the OrangeFox zip, and swipe to install it (this confused me, was looking for an install option, but then realised you select app then swipe to install.
Anyway everything sorted, Thankyou

Works installing miui11 beta android 10? Thanks

Enviado desde mi MI MAX 3 mediante Tapatalk

Yes Miui 11 Android 10 can be flashed with this recovery. And it's still the most stable one we got. But read on telegram that some options like backup/restore can be broken in Android 10.
Btw basics fonctions still work fine.

Using MiGlobe 9.12.26 on mine with OF R10.

Hi all, I seem to have soft bricked my MI Max 3 by attempting to recover from a botched attempt to get rid of ads after the latest Miui 11 OTA removed root and Magisk. Before I let the OTA install I took a backup of everything that the Orange Fox recovery would let me do - i.e, checking every box in the backup option list and then backing up. After I soft bricked the phone (endless bootloops) I tried to restore back to the place I was before the OTA by attempting to restore everything (ticking all the boxes again) and hitting restore. I suspect that this may be a dumb thing to do. Certainly it didn't work - the restore hung at the 'System image'. Thinking about it now, it occurs to me that recoveries don't usually flash images - you tend to flash images via adb yes? I then tried to restore everything except the system image - still no dice. I have just tried to restore only the data, system, boot & vendor partitions. This has got me to the Mi Logo with the 'powered by android' beneath it with the three loading dots which flash white one after another. But it seems to be stuck there. Any ideas about how to use this comprehensive recovery to bring the phone back - at least in some form? I know that I can resurrect the phone by using MIFlash with a stock rom but I'd really like to try and save some text threads that weren't backed up. Thanks in advance.

PS: Flashing the OTA again fixed it, short term: no root is better than no phone.

Dirty-flashing the original ROM (ie, the one you flashed before the OTA update) would probably have restored the system just as well (and you should then have been able to restore root by restoring the backup boot image).

Yes, ticking everything for backup and restore is a sure recipe for disaster. And - recoveries can flash images just fine.

For general information about backups, read - https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=79771469&postcount=3

Thank you very much for that helpful post. I've just read the linked page and the one that that page recommends as well. This stuff is complicated though and my brain is not getting any younger! It's enough to make me buy an Apple phone (<--- humour).

Incremental MIUI OTA:
Due to recent changes in stock MIUI, you must not disable DM-Verity when flashing a stock MIUI ROM that is based on either Android Pie, or Android 10 (the relevant option in OrangeFox is now unticked by default). If you disable DM-Verity, incremental MIUI OTA updates will definitely not work.

Ok. Is it possible, to safe configs (theme and other settings) in recovery partition? Because after testing new ROMs etc. all settings are gone ( format data) switching miui etc.
No, we are done with writing things to the recovery partition.

Simply copy the /sdcard/Fox/ folder to an external storage medium before doing all that. And then you can copy it back later. But don't do this if you flash a new version of the recovery - because new versions should be allowed to start with a clean configuration file.

I do it this way, but it is uncomforable. My new way is to use the extras out of external storage, I only missing fox-extras button and have to choose them manually via flashing zip...
