So I have a "mi10T Lite 5g" with global rom installed version 12.0.2. (A10)
I did all the steps (unlocked BL etc) and managed to get orangefox as the default recovery.
One think i noticed is that orange fox recovery MTP (with windows) worked only when the global rom was installed. When I wiped the storage and format the phone , the MTP with windows was broken and I could transfer/flash files only via OTG.
I tried to install the beta eu named "xiaomi.eu_multi_HMNote9Pro5G_MI10TLite_21.7.21_v12-11.zip" via OTG

...and the result was an error from orange fox that either it was not the correct fw version or i did not mount the system partition or some other options...

I wiped,format data and reboot in order to try again an the phone bricked. It would not respond to power button and would not even turn on. Send it to service.

The phone was purchased 2 weeks ago :/

    Via Reocvery :

    • To install an OrangeFox zip, simply flash it with OrangeFox (or any TWRP-compatible custom recovery) without any wipes - exactly the same way that you would flash any zip
    • Do the same thing if you want to upgrade OrangeFox
    • When you flash an OrangeFox zip, there is no need to flash any DFE or any other such thing
    • See below for detailed instructions on how to install OrangeFox via fastboot
    Via Fastboot, and then recovery :
    You need a PC for this. If you do not have a PC, or access to a PC, then you are stuck!
    • Unlock your bootloader (if not already unlocked)
    • Install adb, fastboot from here, and the relevant USB drivers onto your PC
    • Install the Mi Flash tool onto your PC (only for Xiaomi devices)
    • Download the correct OrangeFox zip file to your phone, and to your PC
    • Extract recovery.img from the OrangeFox zip file, and copy recovery.img to your PC’s adb directory
    • Reboot your phone into fastboot/bootloader mode
    • Open up a command line window / terminal emulator on your PC
    • Change to the adb directory on your PC
    • 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
    • Enjoy!

    Brother, will the future version of recovery fix this problem?
    How i'm able to fix something which is not bug? Encryption is for security reasons and cannot be removed. More about it here https://wiki.orangefox.tech/en/guides/encryption
    What's the difference to twrp ?
    Diffrent UI, more options (for example deleting apps via recovery)
    I cant also access the internal anymore, despite format data, keeps telling me "unable to decrypt FBE device" when i am going into orangefox
    Using XIAOMI.eu weekly 21.1.28
    went back to geoanto555 twrp and it works again :/
    Sorry to hear. It's still beta i'll try to fix that in future updates. Thanks for your feedback!
