[Guide] How To Install Custom Recovery and Root Your Device Easily

Hello, MIUIer’s,

How are you? I hope everything will be fine. Most of the Xiaomi user asked me that, how do they install custom recovery and root their device. So, I decide today I want to give you, How to install a custom recovery on your Xiaomi device and also root your device.

About Root:
Rooting an Android phone means giving yourself superuser access. A superuser is an administrator who has access to more features and functions of a system and can make changes to it beyond its standard behaviour. This grants more access to the operating system, which means more power over how the device works, but it also brings with it a greater potential to do damage to the device's proper operation. One of the best features of the Android phone is that it has an open source operating system. However, this doesn't mean it is completely open; phone service carriers and device manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, and others, put quite a few modifications and restrictions on their phone products. Even Google puts some restrictions into its own operating system for safety and security reasons, but also at the request of carriers and phone manufacturers.

The Advantage of Root:
  • You can install a custom recovery.
  • Change the boot image.
  • Can change the boot logo.
  • Can enable camera 2api.
  • Can use Gcam.
  • Can change your device IMEI.
  • Can edit build prop.
  • Can use Titanium Backup.
  • Can use Lucky Patcher and much more.

Warning: Do anything at your own risk. Oreo and Pie rom have anti-rollback so, be careful.

You need an unlocked bootloader and also need Mi USB Driver.
If you don’t know how to unlock your device bootloader and how to install Mi USB Driver then read this two thread.

Now, most of the Xiaomi devices come with anti-rollback so, now you can’t flash custom recovery directly. If you want to flash custom recovery directly then you bypass dummy. That is a trouble stape we don’t need to follow that. We always try to use the official TWRP custom recovery. Because sometimes moded custom recovery can’t boot your device on custom recovery

Now I deserving you how to flash a custom recovery and also root your device...

  • Download TWRP Recovery (img file) from this site: HERE

  • Now download Fastboot Tool from here: Fastboot (1.33 MB, Downloads: 787)

  • Also,download the “” from here: (4.07 MB, Downloads: 628)
(You can also use the updated version of Magisk or can you SuperSU for root your device)

  • Download “”from here: (411.16 KB, Downloads: 1084)
(LazyFlasher is a custom kernel flashing tool designed to make it easy to dynamically modify ramdisks and inject kernel binaries into the current boot image. It's the swiss army knife of kernel flashing for use in Team Win Recovery Project)

  • Copy and put the,, and recovery.img on your device internal storage/sd card/pen drive.

  • Now rename your device TWRP Recovery from any name to recovery (Ex: Download twrp-3.2.3-0-whyred.img). Don’t change the file extension it will be img.

  • Extract the “Fastboot” and put the recovery image on this extracted Fastboot Tool folder.

  • Select all the file with recovery image and type “cmd” on the search bar or press-hold shift and right click then select "Open command window here/Command Prompt".

  • Your device boot into the fastboot mode. For this power of your device and press Power and Volume Down button (-) at the same time. If your device makes any problem on this then first Power Off your device then hold press Power Button then connect the USB cable, I hope this trick will be work.

  • Now type some commands. First type “fastboot devices” for the check, is your device connected your computer or not? If your device doesn’t show any code and fastboot (see the screenshot) then update your Mi USB Driver. For this follow the requirement part.

  • After that again type “fastboot devices” now you can see code and fastboot (see on the screenshot).

  • Now I’m showing if you try to install TWRP Recovery then what will happen. (see the screenshot)

  • So, don’t try this, follow my easy way. Type “fastboot boot recovery.img” and wait sometimes.

  • After booting into TWRP Recovery swipe for allow modification.

  • Select “Install”.

  • Now “Select Storage”.

  • Then select your storage where you put Magisk, lazyflasher and recovery. Select “Ok”.

  • Now select “Install Image”, select “recovery.img/any the thing that is your device recovery”.

  • If your recovery asked for partition then select “Recovery” and swipe to confirm flash.

  • After flashed recovery press home button and go to storage and select “Install Zip” and again select “”, swipe to confirm flash.

  • Again press the home button and go to storage. Select “” and swipe to confirm flash.

  • After flashing select “Reboot System”. Now unchecked the two boxes and press “Do Not Install”.

  • After rebooting your devices you can see “Magisk Manager” on your device. If you don’t find this then download from here and install.
    Download: MagiskManager-v6.0.1.apk (1.92 MB, Downloads: 82)

  • Now download “Root Checker Basic” and install. After installing open the app and click agree and again “Get Started”.
    Download from here: Root_Checker_Basic_6.4.0[1].apk (8.68 MB, Downloads: 64)

  • Click “VERIFY ROOT” and click “GRANT”.

Congratulations you successfully installed TWRP custom recovery and also rooted your device
