I've only got as far as unlocking the bootloader, so far:

Two things that most tutorials seem to forget to mention:
(1) On phone: enabling OEM Unloacking... you need to repeat this about 4 times before it actual does enable. The first few times it silently ignores you but you should get a pop up message when it's done it for real. check back in the setting menu to see if it's taken hold.
(2) when using the mi_flash_unlock desktop application (windows only!) you need to first install the drivers before it can connect to the phone.

This is a reasonable guide that I mostly used: https://www.teamandroid.com/2018 ... der-xiaomi-poco-f1/

XDA is a better resource for hacking your phone though. This Guide is mostly complete (for the bootloader unlocking at least) https://forum.xda-developers.com ... bootloader-t3852520

Just be careful where you get downloads from the mi-flash tool + other images/packages as it would be very easy to install a compromised application/ROM.

Also, note that SuperSU is no longer maintained and has even been pulled from the Play store. It hasn't been maintained for over a year now having been sold on by the original developer to a compnay that had no idea how to monetise it. Probably best to avoid unoffical downloads of SuperSu like the plague.

Magisk is probably the best replacement for SuperSU

Another good post for TWRP is here:

Remember by rooting you void your warranty it will also be voided if you flash a new recovery image.

Happy hacking
