I tried to build it from scratch on a clean system, but it doesn't include the 'twrp.dependencies' while running ' lunch twrp_mojito-eng'. After running 'mka recoveryimage' it exits without errors, but it doesn't build the 'recovery.img' file.
Could you add your version of the OrangeFox building instructions for this device to this thread or the source page at GitHub?
Changing the boot theme made my phone get stuck in the Redmi screen. Reflashing the rom (crDroid) solved the problem.
I changed the background color and clicked on "change background image" but didn't choose any file (perhaps that was the issue?).
Also, does anyone know if there are any glitches with backing up and restoring partitions? I would like to test other roms and would like to restore partitions when I return to the rom I am using after testing them rather than doing a clean flash. If there are no glitches, what partitions should I backup?
I use OandXBackup for that. I have tried Migrate in the past, but found that, like OandXBackup, some apps still need to be configured despite being restored from a backup (e.g: Signal, Protonmaill, Nextcloud, etc). Plus I don't think they support backing up apps from the Work profile from the Main profile.
That is why I wanted to know which partitions to back up in OFOX. In case I migrate to a ROM that doesn't work properly and I just want to revert everything back to the previous working ROM very quickly. This would be particularly helpful when going from A11 to A12 ROMs, in case the A12 ROM has issues and I need to go back to the A11 ROM I know was working fine.

I'm going to unlock it.
After unlocking how should i proceed?directly flash irangefox recovery using flashboot?
or first boot into orangefox recovery using fastboot and then flash recvery from within the orangefox recovery?
There is a full guide to install the zip.
Flash OrangeFox Recovery by using the fastboot flash recovery recovery.img command
Reboot into OrangeFox by pressing the power + volume up keys, until you see the OrangeFox splash screen (the keys may be may vary on your device)
After OrangeFox has booted up, check that everything is working – eg, that it has mounted the data partition successfully, and that the touchscreen works.
Find and select the OrangeFox zip on your phone, tap on it, and swipe to install it (because OrangeFox Recovery needs some files from the zip)
After installation, the phone will automatically reboot into OrangeFox.
