Installation Guide
Once you've got you're bootloader unlocked with MiFlash and run through all the Xiaomi hoops to unlock your bootloader and have a fastboot installed on your PC:

Simply place the download where you like and then open a command prompt and type
fastboot flash recovery /path/to/twrp-3.1.1-0-scorpio.img

BONUS THEMES & File Manager
Plus as a special treat I'm including a full guide below to use Materialised Theme and Aroma File Manager both working within TWRP 3.1.1-0

Themes available from here
1. Install the latest TWRP linked above.
2. Download one of the themes above (see screenshots below for recommendations)
3. Download Aroma File Manager for TWRP from here
4. Once booted into TWRP select Install and choose the theme.zip you've downloaded.
5. You will instantly see the theme applied
6. Click Install again and this time select "materialised_aromafm_200-b7.zip"
7. Once that zip has completed installing open the Materialised Options (the art palette icon on the top right)
8. Tick the box that says "Use Aroma File Manager"
9. Press back and select "File Manager" from the list.
10. Swipe to start Aroma File Manager
11. Enjoy!!

After flashing this recovery, it boots right back into stock recovery. Any idea what i'm doing wrong? Do I have to disable dm-verity or something?

You can keep dm-verity. After flashing I'd suggest leaving fastboot and booting straight into recovery via fingerpress.
Flashing SuperSU or Magisk or similar should ensure survival of TWRP if it's being overwritten.

Works great but I found :
1. Reboot to TWRP is so slowly... Why ?
2. System won't boot into TWRP when wipe everything and reboot to TWRP. I need to turn phone off and then press volume up + power button to enter TWRP again.
Is there any chance to fix those ?

1. I've noticed the slow speed too, I'm 100% sure why it's happening but I have some ideas.
2. The same ideas will hopefully address this issue.
It was a quick and dirty port since there was no native TWRP, I haven't had the time yet to improve it but I'll build an updated release based on 8.2.5.0 sometime soon and look to making it official.

Boots quicker. Screen brightness is fully adjustable. Reboot to recovery from TWRP is working
Has been submitted to TeamWin for official status but for now remains unofficial.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Can not use usb otg function ...
Otg function, no work

I've had no issues with USB-OTB, with any standard formatted flash drive (FAT32, NTFS, EXT4).
This is also the first I've heard of anyone having such an issue.

Does the OTG drive mount successfully in whatever ROM you're using? Is it attached prior to booting to TWRP? Can you provide additional information.

TWRP doesn't like remounting the same USB multiple times - i.e if you unplug the USB while in TWRP, and then reattach the same drive it won't remount it.

Sorry to feedback lately because I was too busy in past 2-week.
Well, new TWRP is working well.
The only one problem: If I want to upgrade firmware, TWRP will be replaced by MIUI stock recovery after flashing new version of MIUI ROM.
It's pretty annoying because I need to get into fastboot mode then flash TWRP. After that, entering TWRP and flash lineage OS ...
Is it possible to be fixed in next coming version ?
