Hello MIUIers,
What is TWRP Recovery?
Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) is an open-source software custom recovery image for Android-based devices. It provides a touchscreen-enabled interface with partial material design that allows users to install third-party firmware and back up the current system which are functions often unsupported by stock recovery images. It is, therefore, often installed when flashing, installing or rooting Android devices, although it isn't dependent on a device being rooted to be installed.
