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.

CHANGELOG for 3.2.1-0:
  • minui fixes (cryptomilk)
  • Better android-8.0 compatibility in ROM trees (Dees_Troy)
  • Fix missing library in android-8.0 (nkk71)
  • Fix inconsistent SDCard naming (DevUt)
  • Default to TWRP restore instead of adb backup restore to fix restore on fresh TWRP boot (jlask)

CHANGELOG for 3.1.1-0:
  • Backups will now include adopted storage keys (Dees_Troy)
  • Fixed an adb restore issue (bigbiff)
  • Fixed rebooting when no OS is present (Dees_Troy)
  • Fixed line wrapping in the GUI terminal (_that)
  • Updated TWRP source code to AOSP 7.1.2 (Dees_Troy)Updated TWRP source code to AOSP 7.1.2

CHANGELOG for 3.1.0-0:
  • vold decrypt on a few select HTC devices, TWRP will now attempt to use the system partition's vold and vdc binaries and libraries to decrypt the data partition (nkk71 and CaptainThrowback)
  • adb backup to stream a backup directly to or from your PC, see documentation here (bigbiff)
  • tweak MTP startup routines (mdmower)
  • support new Android 7.x xattrs for backup and restore to fix loss of data after a restore (Dees_Troy)
  • support POSIX file capabilities backup and restore to fix VoLTE on HTC devices and possibly other issues (Dees_Troy)
  • better indicate to users that internal storage is not backed up (Dees_Troy)
  • improve automatic determination of TW_THEME (mdmower)
  • minimal getcap and setcap support (_that)
  • try mounting both ext4 and f2fs during decrypt (jcadduono and Dees_Troy)
  • shut off backlight with power key (mdmower)
  • timeout during FDE decrypt (Dees_Troy and nkk71)
  • support for FBE decrypt and backing up and restoring FBE policies (Dees_Troy)
  • boot slot support (Dees_Troy)
  • TWRP app install prompt during reboot (Dees_Troy)
  • support for AB OTA zips (Dees_Troy)
  • support new Android 7.x log command (Dees_Troy)
  • update recovery sources to AOSP 7.1 (Dees_Troy)
  • numerous bugfixes and improvements by too many people to mention

When will lineage os released for redmi 5A? Miui is sick

We need somebody (a developer) that can maintain device trees for our phone. Then only we can get official support for lineage os. What I don't understand is... Where are the Redmi 5A forums? Given the popularity of the phone - Xiomi claims it has already sold 1 million units of the phone - we must have had personal forums for the phone.

can you help me how to unlock this phone i have trouble in add account and device in Mi unlock status, please help me

First create a new account and set it name in WORD(not in numeric) then create miui forum with that mi account and make sure that forum username and mi account name is same
Apply for permission give same name after granting permission go to developer option click on unlock status then click on bind account below (it will show some Chinese word [its normal]) wait for 72 hours after that connect to pc and use mi flash tool to unlock it without any issues.

What? Create MiUI forum? I can't find where I apply for permission. When I log in to the forum it only tells me successful login and I then can't find it. And it's all in Chinese. I can't speak or read Chinese :( where do I apply for this permission please?

Create new account first then give it a name (not numerical) then go to en.miui.com/forum and log in then set a new username (same as name in mi account) and use Google Chrome it will allow you to translate Chinese into English
