    If flashing through TWRP didn't work, flash the recovery.img through fastboot
    Didn't work :( same issue again - device boots to ROM instead of recovery even after multiple trials. Only one trick works until now and that's by booting into TWRP through ADB commands and then flashing our desired ROMs / packages fromOTG drives

    You are using Mi 10T pro correct? Because this was tested while using stock MIUI so try reverting to stock and flashing the recovery and then flash your desired ROM

    It's a known bug that this recovery doesn't reliably work. The developer is aware and looking into it. So far no reason was found. I suspect something to do with init but idk really

    It can work and then suddenly stop working after a rom update, not work at all etc

    Ok thanks for the info I may try rebuild it myself and see if that works
     
    Tested on my Mi 10T Pro with latest xiaomi.eu weekly beta ROM installed

    Official version released on 04.04 is works fine.

    I searced for the sources and I found it on PBRP's GitHub and the next Unofficial test release relased on 04.21 is give just a blank screen, system booted fine one time and no more.
    I needed to reflash the version used before from Fastboot.

    Hi, i have the pro version.
    I flashed TWRP_apollo_3.5.0_10-beta_1_whyle.img months ago. Today i downloaded the zip, flashed it with that TWRP version and it seems to be working (haven't tested flash, wipe or anything but at least it boots up)
    Thanks :)

    Little update, yesterday I updated to last xiaomi.eu 21.5.27 and it was working without any issue, after that I flashed magisk 23 and... bootloop.
    I thought it was some magisk compatibility issue with the new xiaomi.eu, and tried to uninstall v23, flashed 22, 22.1, canary... always bootloop.
    After that I remembered that it was the first time I was flashing magisk with PBRP and tried with whyle's TWRP just in case, reflashed room and magisk, everything is working now.
    There might be some things not working (or it may only be my phone) but i thought it was worth mentioning in case it happens to someone else.

    Regards

      Thanks for posting this! I didn't know of the existence of PBRP untill now.
      Does anyone have any experience with PBRP?
      I prefer it to TWRP because it is official so the chances of of something going wrong is slim and it a wider wealth of features.

      What do you mean boots normally? After flash, the system will boot normally. To enter PBRP, shut down the phone and boot into recovery.
      After installing PBRP and try to boot to PBRP recovery, the boot logo of PBRP shows for a few seconds, and then the system reboots into the rom, lock screen appears, just like a normal boot...

      Same problem.Logo PitchBlack recovery appears fo a few seconds, and after that, system is booting.
      Exactly!

      Does not work for apollo.

      Might work for apollopro, but apollo does not boot with it. Clearly wasn't tested.
      was tested with apollopro

      disable encryption
      This is not a sustainable workaround though. However, I messaged one of their developers saying that they are still fixing it and it will be on the next release.
