I would like to try Fluid ROM on my Redmi Note 10 but I have some question before starting flashing. On many phones in the past few years I flashed ROMS but from TWRP. TWRP obviously with android 11/12 is no longer so good in providing flashing custom ROMs so new recoveries try to full that GAP.

In instructions on opening page there are two recoveries written as needed to flash Fluid; OrangeFox and TWRP;

So my first question is how should one install two recoveries? Should one be on first and another on second recovery partition, or should one first install OrangeFOX, and after reboot and boot to FLUID, should one on top of OrangeFOX install TWRP?

Also in instruction is written “Flash the FluidOS via OTA script”. What means flash “via OTA script”? Would it be enough to just swipe flash from OrangeFox or some more complex procedure is needed?

Also I Would like root privileges, is that possible by flashing magisk from TWRP? Should Gapps or magisk be first flashed?

I would appreciate any help.

P.S. I forgot to wrote that currently I use stock 12.5.4 ROM with unlocked bootloader. That information is probably need in order to know how to install OrangeFOX

1) There is no recovery partition here , recovery is inside of boot.img
OrangeFox or Twrp is up to you choose one... i personally prefer OrangeFox..

for flash ROM
Format Data -> Reboot to Recovery -> Flash ROM -> Flash GApps -> Reboot to Recovery -> Flash Magisk Zip -> Done..

Ota Tool is optional... i never used it and i never had any problems

2) For install recovery it should be like this:

for PE Recovery -> fastboot flash boot recovery.img

for twrp -> fastboot boot twrp.img , then go to advanced and choose flash current twrp... reboot to recovery and you are done (don't flash twrp just boot it)

for OrangeFox you have to flash ofox zip on PE Recovery or twrp and you're done

When something might go wrong it goes wrong. I followed your instructions and everything goes without errors (except standard error message after flashing ROM and after flashing Gapps), but after booting ROM was not rooted. Magisk application stated that it is not installed

Also after booting I went to recovery to my surprise it was ROM recovery not TWRP. First I tried to flash Magisk from this recovery, and I got error. Then I flash TWRP and try to flash Magisk from TWRP and also got error. That was strange since first time I did not get any error but ROM was not rooted.

Is there any way to root FluidROM whitout loosing data? I will consider any recovery just to root my phone.

P.S. I downloaded another Magisk file, so I think errors was not due to corrupt Magisk file.

1) Yes , as this phone doesn't have a recovery partition , every time you flash a ROM , recovery will be replaced with ROM own recovery so , yes i forgot to mention that...

just flash your recovery again after ROM flash and the recovery will not be changed

That's why i recommend OrangeFox.. simply Flash ROM + GApps + OrangeFox + Magisk and done...

about Magisk , newer twrp have a issue where can't be installed. "Error 2" of your picture... i suggest you to use OrangeFox Beta ... you will not have problems while flashing Magisk

After booting into the system , install magisk apk (it will ask to update it , just tap update) and then the app will be installed and root done (maybe it will tell you that you need to restart the phone , so just tap on reboot on magisk)

so the steps are this :

Flash OrangeFox > Format Data > Flash ROM > Flash OrangeFox > Reboot to Recovery > Flash GApps > Flash Magisk > Reboot to System > Update Magisk app > Reboot > Done

i personally use this steps everytime

I just spend couple of ours arrange ROM to my needs, I don't want to do it again. Is it possible to root the Fluid ROM without need to flash again ROM and Gapps?

Please good people, I updated my Redmi note 10 software, after the software upgrade my phone would boot to recovery and stuck there, after some while I would reboot without booting the phone, I'm not happy seeing this and my bootloader is unlocked, due to I just bought the phone new, I would take it to the repairer but it turns that, they will not know what to only to be telling to come today and tomorrow,
Please how do I get my phone working again, do I downgrade it, which ROM will I use to wake it up again because at the recovery the phone would write NV data corrupted...
Please I need help

    Fluid is an aftermarket Android custom ROM distribution based on AOSP, focused on bringing a better UI/UX to Android with a fluid experience coupled with themes and customisations.

    Fluid doesn't aim at providing all the customisation available on the planet. We are focused on a cleaner, more Material design approach, with a few twists [NOPARSE];)[/NOPARSE] that assured, we do have a dedicated theme engine with cool stuff getting added every new update. So sit back and enjoy Fluid on your device!
