Hello MIUIers,
Many of us Mi phone users have installed custom recoveries like TWRP for using custom roms and backup options but what if you want stock Mi recovery for some reason, one method to do that is to flash the recovery image file via fastboot but today I will show you the easiest method to get back the stock recovery. The stock MIUI fastboot rom contains Mi recovery so we will extract it from there and flash it via TWRP.

NOTE: Only use the files specific to your device, using different devices' files may brick your phone.

STEP 1:
Download the full MIUI fastboot rom file from the download section and extract it.

STEP 2:
Open the extracted folder and go to Images and copy recovery.img to the root storage of your phone.

STEP 3:
Boot TWRP recovery, tap Install and select "Install image", then navigate the img file and flash it. Then reboot your device

STEP 4:
Voila! You have successfully installed stock Mi recovery and can be accessed from updater app or by pressing VOLUME UP + POWER buttons at boot

ALTERNATE METHOD (only for rooted phones)

Follow Steps 1-2

STEP 3:
Install flashify app from play store.

STEP 4:
Open the app and select recovery image option. Then select "choose a file" and navigate to the recovery.img file and flash it.

STEP 5:
Stock Mi recovery is now installed.
