Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *
 */

Features:
  • All function in a normal TWRP
  • Multi-language support
  • Support USB OTG!
  • Support decrypt /data!

Tips:
  • For unknown reason, after formatting userdata in TWRP, you won't be able to boot stock MIUI as encryption will fail. The fix is flashing factory images via MiFlash or just flash factory userdata.img via fastboot.
  • Decrypt Oreo userdata is NOT supported, I'll release an Oreo compatible build after it's a thing.The latest version already supports decrypting Oreo data

Install guide:
1. Install fastboot tools from google's sdk on your PC
2. Enter fastboot mode
3. Unlock your bootloader
4. Run "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" in command line
5. Reboot and enjoy it:)

Does OTG still work with one of the newer dev ROMs installed?? After installing Xiaomi.eu ROM 8.1.11, OTG stopped working for me with a different TWRP version, TWRP_3.2.1-3_jason-v2, that I downloaded from another site.

hello,
I am not allowed to start a new topic (at least not yet) so I will ask here, maybe someone can help me.
I have unlocked my MiNote3 (official way). I have installed all needed drivers on the PC (win 7) and tried to install latest TWRP on the phone.
I managed to install it but is not booting in TWRP when I press power and Vol+ or any other buttons combination.
Any idea why is not working?
I also tried to install another ROM (global developer instead of stable) but the phone is not entering in EDL mode. It's just restarting.
Any idea why?

Thanks

When you flash TWRP using adb and if everything went well type after this command :

fastboot boot twrp.img

You need to immediately after flashing twrp ,boot into it and set it up so on the next restart it wont get overwritten by stock recovery.

So the full process should be like this :

adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
fastboot boot twrp.img

Thank you for advice. It's working now but the TWRP doesn't stay installed.
After first reboot in Miui Stable is deleting it.
I tried everything but is just removed.
Shall I install custom rom (from Xiaomi.eu) when I enter first time in TWRP?
Will there be any issue when booting after the new ROM will be installed?
I just want to avoid bricking the devices.

Has anyone had trouble with the screen not registering touches in TWRP? I tried two different versions of TWRP and when my phone boots into it, the screen won't respond to any presses. It only worked the first time when I flashed xiaomi.eu.

Edit: I've realised that TWRP is unresponsive only if my phone doesn't vibrate when it restarts prior to entering TWRP. When it's unresponsive, I force a restart into TWRP by pressing the power button and volume up button simultaneously. The phone is never unresponsive when booting normally, so it's not clearly a hardware issue. However, it occurs in two different builds of TWRP that I've tried. Any suggestions?

Edit 2: I see I'm not the only one. https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/twrp-3-1-1-0-no-working-touch-with-new-roms.42800/

    @nicolae_fratila yes you can flash any rom you want after booting into TWRP but keep in mind you will WIPE everything on you device. Yes everything.

    @Pumpino i had this issue and solved it ( at least i think so) by installing TWRP from China MiUI forum. But on that version it wouldnt mount partitions i i flashed again twrp turkish one (it have turkish miui forum logo before loads twrp) and now again it worked. How and why it solved i do not know. I alwayse use same adb commands . If you cant find link to that chinese thread write to me i will try to dig it up.
