I have just got my first Redmi, im used toflashing samsungs, plese can someone point me at a guide on how to flash?
And links to TWRP etc thats needed. I have the stock rom rooted so i know what i am doingbut i cannot find anything on how to install the custom recovery and flash the roms!
thanks in advance
First you need to unlock the bootloader via the Mi webpage. You need to wait, I think 7 days, for the unlock to clear. https://en.miui.com/unlock/
Once the bootloader is unlocked you can install a custom recovery. I use OrangeFox as TWRP is not maintained anymore. Have a look in the Rom section of the Redmi Note 9s/Pro(Indian). To install the OrangeFox recovery follow the instructions here: https://wiki.orangefox.tech/en/guides/installing_orangefox
Edit(forgot): Then when the custom recovery is installed just boot into the recovery and install the ROM of your choice
I would advice not to install crDroid 7.8 as it 'freezes' the phone after inactivity atm (Hotspot still works, but you cannot answer any calls, the screen stays black, you have to reboot to access the phone fully again). I use 7.6 and like it very much, but I had to reinstall MIUI first and install 7.6 'clean', even after downgrading from 7.8 to 7.6 or even down to 7.4 the 'freeze bug' stayed. So I strongly advice to avoid 7.8 for now.
