I have built a derivative of the TeamWin Recovery Project recovery to the new Android device Xiaomi Redmi 8A (olivelite). This recovery has been extensively tested and works perfectly on Global version of the device with latest firmare as of 20.11.2019. on Android Pie (MIUI 10).

IMPORTANT: You must flash vbmeta or your phone will fail to boot (until you restore stock recovery):

fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

I'm very sorry that I forgot to include this instruction initially. If anyone's phone has failed to boot, you can either flash vbmeta and use my TWRP, or flash the stock recovery without flashing vbmeta.

I have tried it on MIUI 11 India ROM, it works the same (but my phone is Global and I flashed MIUI 11 India on it).

@ararat1824:
> And the phone won't turn on only in fastboot mode
I don't quite understand, but you probably bricked your phone.

Restore stock ROM with Mi Flash, then reboot into bootloader by turning off the phone from the OS and holding volume Down and pressing the power until the FASTBOOT logo appears.

Then do "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" and start pressing volume Up (not Down!) and type "fastboot reboot" while holding the volume button.

It will go into TWRP.

@ararat1824 I don't understand you at all. But if you have not tried my recovery, this is not the place for you to complain.
