Check on always allow this computer and press ok button in the popup. Note: Now it will not ask again when you connect your Redmi 5A to your PC.
  • In Minimal ADB & Fastboot, type adb devices and press enter key and check whether device is detected in pc. If its not detected, check whether the drivers are installed properly or not.

  • Type fastboot flash recovery  twrp-3.2.1-0-riva.img and press enter key. This will flash twrp to your device.
  • Type fastboot boot twrp-3.2.1-0-riva.img and press enter key. This will boot into TWRP.
  • Now in twrp, swipe to right to allow modifications. This will prevent from booting so after flashing twrp, you need to flash lazy flasher, else your device will become bricked, so download lazy flasher from here and flash it in twrp.
  • Reboot back to your device. The first reboot after flashing twrp might take some time and may also reboot few times. Please dont worry. It will work fine and reboot back to system perfectly.

Note: You need to flash Lazyflasher in your twrp, else the device wont be rebooted to System. Your device will be in bootloop if you dont flash Lazyflasher. Dont forget that.For existing TWRP users, flash the twrp image from twrp in your device.
