[Discussion] Cant root Redmi Y2

I am currently using Redmi Y2 (3+32 variant). I've unlocked the bootloader but unable to root it. I tried flashing twrp, but it asks for password. If I press cancel, it wont read the internal storage. Also, there is no fastboot rom available for redmi y2 on the miui official download page. It just redirects to MIUI 10 page. Please help me.

You have to format the internal storage in TWRP. Then flash Disable Force Encrypt zip (There are a lot of them on XDA, whichever flashes OK). Then flash Magisk.

Yes, save the file in external SD or you can transfer from PC to Internal Storage after formatting. Choose "Internal Storage" only in Format. Flash the Disable Force Encrypt after that.

Make sure the Disable Force Encrypt works with any other MIUI device too(Search in XDA for any popular MIUI device like whyred). Because some of them I tried did not work. Also everytime you flash MIUI rom you need to flash this same zip and also Magisk.

what will you do when you root your phone?
you will do some tweaks on CPU?
or install some Magisk modules
or Xposed modules and app?
