Yes, you will lose all your data (music, video, documents, app, etc.).

Bubu, Seguendo la guida si riesce ad installare la recovery modificata correttamente?
Ho letto che, visto la nuova politica Google delle partizioni A e B, non funziona più fare semplicemente flash recovery blablabla.img

Non ho provato ancora questa TWRP, però so che è come dici, cioè non c'è più la partizione di recovery nei nuovi telefoni A/B quindi la custom recovery può essere avviata solo da PC tramite fastboot, non sarà più possibile lasciarla installata sul telefono pronta all'uso.

I didn't test this TWRP on my Mi A2 Lite, but you cannot install a custom recovery anymore on new phones with A/B partitioning scheme, because there isn't a recovery partition anymore. The only way to use a custom recovery is via fastboot with a PC.

EDIT: looking at the TWRP threads for Mi A1 (very similar device), it's possible to install TWRP by adding it to the boot partition (more or less how Magisk is installed).

doesn't boot into recovery.img

when i enter:
fastboot boot recovery.img (tried it with TWRP-3.2.3-TwrpBuilder-daisy-20180809.img)
just the normal android starts and not the twrp recovery

cmd history:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>adb reboot bootloader

C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>fastboot boot TWRP-3.2.3-TwrpBui
lder-daisy-20180809.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [ 0.930s]
booting...
OKAY [ 0.595s]
finished. total time: 1.531s

Can confirm this. Doesn't work.

I don't want to disparage any hard working dev's efforts, but does anyone actually check these things?

We get a "stable" version and install instructions. But if it's impossible to boot through fastboot, it's impossible to test. So how can it be stable?
And if there's no recovery partition, it's impossible to install. So why do we get install instructions?

Is there any evidence that someone was able to disable forced encryption? I couldn't through a modified boot.img.

I was wrong in the previous posts, actually it seems that TWRP could be installed in the boot partition, by modifying it (just like Magisk does).
I checked the info in the Mi A1 forum, as the device is very similar to ours.

But if the TWRP doesn't boot via fastboot, it means it doesn't work. Probably OP compiled the code automatically, without testing it against the device.

EDIT 1: in fact, as they say on their presentation post:
We do not guarantee all images will work as expected. It might even not boot.

EDIT 2: finally I tested this, and the result is the same as the other users: it's not booting.
But instead it succeeded to remove Magisk somehow. It's because the phone has booted with the TWRP boot image, not with the Magisk boot.img saved in the phone. In fact, rebooting the phone brings back Magisk.

I can confirm this. Sme behavior for me. Somehow,it also removed the password to boot Android. My phone still show as encrypted but is not asking the password anymore to boot, which is weird.

    As I don't have the device, all testing is the Requester responsibility.
    I didn't publish it before testing, he tested and reporting It's working
    Anyway, I'll look into it within a few days. ;)

      Probably because the redmi pro 6 has an official version now and it's basically the same phone as the mi A2 lite only with miui instead of android one.

      I sent a Mi A2 Lite to Ethan to get it ported officially. We'll be selling the Mi A2 Lite here in the USA soon...with phh-treble preinstalled and a 2-year warranty. We'll prob also sponsor them, phh-treble, opengapps and offer bug bounties & port bounties
