hey Whyle, is it now safe to fastboot flash ?
i can't do without OTA's from the EU rom..
so i do the process every 3-4 month and the phone is killing me...

i saw in poco f3 twrp that they have "install recovery Ramdisk", so after booting to twrp they permanently flash it, and benefit from ota's
is it something that you're working ok for the next update maybe ?

How to delete files and folders from TWRP - File manager?
Error 1 anytime

rm -rf /................................./ process ended with error 1

Mi 10 T Pro

The auther(Whyle) say:

We couldn't modify /system /vendor /product and /odm, caused by new type of partition, so if you want modify them, use magisk module instead.


I also wish the auther to support this function. If the function is work, I don't need to install magisk and root explorer.

fastboot flash recovery works fine, but it don't decrypt storage when you boot it this way (holding volume button on power)

only fastboot boot will give you decrypt by enter password.
why I don't know. but that's my experience. so if you wanna backup data you must boot recovery with fastboot boot.

if you just wanna flash rom update you can reboot into recovery and it works just fine for that purpose.

Hi Whyle,
Will you modify TWRP(file manager) to support delete(modify) file or folder?
Some apps don't support root phone. I know I can hide root, but some apps don't work. I also need to close some service.
Thanks.

    We couldn't modify /system /vendor /product and /odm, caused by new type of partition, so if you want modify them, use magisk module instead.​

    Install guide:
    To boot (Reccomended):
    Code:
    fastboot boot <twrp.img>

    To recovery (Not Reccomended):
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery <twrp.img>

    How can I pass file to device, if mtp not work s?
    You can use adb command, to push them.
    Code:
    adb push C:\<file>.zip /sdcard

    Where are the files, which i copied with mtp?
    Maybe you can find them in /data/media

    Can i flash twrp in recovery partition?
    Yes, you can flash since 3.5.0_10-beta 1. I provided prevent-twrp-replace (to keep twrp after reboot) and stock-fingerprint (for ota update).

    3.4.0_0 (07.11.2020)
    - Init twrp recovery
    - Decryption data
    - Vibration

    3.4.0_1 (08.11.2020)
    - Can flash twrp in recovery partition.

    3.4.0_2 (20.11.2020)
    - Fix permission denied on mount
    - Fix mtp not work after install ROM. (For me seem work)

    3.4.0_3 (21.11.2020)
    - Fix f2fs file system
    - Fix screenshots(in TWRP folder)
    - Adjust MTP device name
    - Resize GUI measures
    after wipe, I suggest you change filesystem to f2fs.

    -..


    3.4.0_10(07.12.2020)
    - /data filesystem to f2fs
    - Fix mtp after factory reset
    - Add some partition (flash .img)
    After working on TWRP for 2 weeks (without configuring the system), I finally found solution to resolve it.
    Now you can flash all roms as you have done usually

    3.5.0_10-beta_1(04.01.2021
    - Android 11 support
    - Android 11 data decryption
    - Add-on zips
    (install > select storage)
    - Add prevent twrp replace
    - Add OTA fingerprint
    Notice: in some case a11 data decryption won't work, i will fix it as soon as possible.

    Tips: after wipe data, I was set the default mtp directory to /data/media and after boot, the mtp directory will set /data/media/0.

    My brother installed the newest 3.5.0 beta on his mi 10t pro but the system Partition doesn't show up. Flashing the newest xiaomi EU fails. (Unable to mount/unable to open block device)

    Any ideas ?

    Edit: he managed to boot the rom after a few attempts. Seems like it was a recovery bootloop. But still weird, that the system Partition does not show up in twrp
    It's because google introduced dynamic partitioning a while ago. And TWRP just added support for it in 3.5 - basically super is a "master partition" containing system, vendor, and bunch of other partitions, and instructions on where is what. Without supported software such as magisk you can't really see those partitions. TWRP just added that few days ago, so expect it to work after a while...

    For those who are trying to flash xiaomi.eu roms, here is what I did using this twrp:
    (I flashed this twrp)

    **i'm from global rom mi 10t (apollo)
    **Weekly eu rom is what I installed
    **Since I cannot format the system, I tried to dirty flashed the rom.

    1. Format data only (advance format)
    2. Flash rom zip file and wait until it's done.
    *You will notice that after flashing, if you will reboot into system, you will be stucked in bootlooping into twrp.
    *In twrp, go to "mount", you will also notice that you cannot mount data and system.
    Next step...
    3. Format data (not in advance format) and wait until it's successful
    4. Go back to "mount" and you will notice now that data was already mounted.
    5. Mount system and reboot. First boot will take at least 5 minutes to load.

    *Data decryption is working when you successfully flashed the eu rom.

    This worked for me like a charm. Hope this helps.

    What have you done?

    I face the same problem because I update full zip recovery from MIUI 12.0.4.0 (A10) to 12.1.1.0 (A11). I simply do backup and then flash the zip and flash magisk. Got this problem.

    After I flash back original boot.img (extracted from recovery/fastboot rom) from fastboot, then it boot normally, but lose the root (and magisk). Someone told me that it is because I don't disable magisk module before flashing, causing the partition to be dirty when updating.

    I don't know that yet, so I ended up flashing fastboot rom A10 (still can't boot) and factory reset data to clear all the dirty partition. In your case, you probably stucked also. You can only flash original boot.img to boot normally. Backup your data as needed, then do a factory reset (probably have to reset from original recovery) to clear all the partition. Then you can try to boot TWRP and root again using magisk, and then restore your data as needed.


    MTP is working as long as your partition is not stuck just like above. It seems you have to wipe data after flashing any ROM, as the remnant from previous ROM will get it to bootloop.
    COULD U MAKE ONE GUIDE THREAD FOR THE NOOB LIKE ME ?
