Hi MI Fans,
Before we start, remember that installing TRWP will void your handset warranty and for any of your losses, only you yourself is responsible. Installing TWRP has a lot of benefits. Before starting, please make a full backup of your data (just in-case).

  • Installing custom ROMs.
  • Remove preinstalled apps.
  • Block Ads in any apps.
  • Install incompatible Apps.
  • Update to the latest Android OS.
  • Change skin of your Android.
  • Boost your Android device’s speed and battery life.
  • Make complete backups of your smartphone.

  • Rooting can brick your smartphone.
  • Loose the official warranty.
  • Problems while getting official updates.


Now you can Follow the below procedure to install Redmi 5 Plus.

Make sure you have followed the steps properly. Don't Skip and Read! – NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE for any damage that might occur to your phone.

Assuming you have installed the ADB and Fastboot on your laptop and PC.
  • Now turn on USB debugging from Settings.
  • To do so, Just go to Settings - About Phone MIUI version
  • Now press 5 times in a row in the MIUI version.
  • Bingo! You are a developer.
  • Now go to Settings - Additional Settings - Developer Options - USB Debugging
  • Turn it On and also install via USB.
  • Do it before you turn off your phone for installing the TWRP recovery & re-check. If not done, you will not be successful.
  • Now connect your mobile with the authentic data cable for best result.
  • Turn off the mobile completely and wait for 20 sec until you get the last vibration.
  • Turn on the phone holding the POWER BUTTON and VOLUME DOWN BUTTON at the same time. You will enter into the fastboot mode.

Now in the folder where you have kept the TWRP image, ADB installers (all in the same folder), Shift+Right Click on an empty area. Choose “Open a Command Prompt Here". Then, write the following command (you can also copy/paste it from here):

fastboot devices

The command should return a serial number, indicating that it can recognize your phone. If it doesn't, go back and make sure you’ve done everything properly up until this point.

If your device is recognized by fastboot, it’s time to flash TWRP. Run the following command: (rename the downloaded TWRP recovery file to twrp.img)

fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

If all goes well, you should see a success message in your Command Prompt window.

After this reboot to the recovery by this:

fastboot boot twrp.img

In many cases, you will be successful and nothing else will be required after booting into TWRP recovery mode.

However, if in any case, you cannot flash or it asks for any passwords while you want to do flash, just install another recovery image keeping that in the phone's memory since you might not get access to your SD card or any memory card or any external cards. This only happens if you try to flash the MIUI stock ROM. If you are flashing any other ROMs, this should not happen.

Steps To Flash SuperSU using TWRP Recovery & Root                                
  • Download the latest SuperSU zip file and save the file in your device.
  • Now Boot your device into TWRP Recovery (Press and hold the Volume Down button + Home button +  Power button at the same time. As soon as your device screen goes black, immediately leave the Volume down button and press Volume Up button while still holding other 2 buttons. Keep the 3 buttons pressed until you get into TWRP Recovery.)
  • Now click on “Wipe” in the TWRP main menu and do a “Swipe to Factory Reset” on the bottom of the screen.
  • Now go back to TWRP main menu, Click on “Install” and select SuperSU (zip file) that you saved in your device in Step 1.
  • After selecting the .zip file, do “Swipe to Confirm Flash” to begin the installation process.(This may take some time as it is a fresh flashing process).
  • Once your SuperSU is successfully installed, click on “Wipe cache/Dalvik” option, and then do “Swipe to wipe” on the bottom of the screen.
  • Once done, reboot your device from the TWRP main menu

Done!!!  Your device should be rooted.         
For confirmation, install Root Checker from Google Play Store and confirm the root privileges in your smartphone.

I personally recommend that if you want only the CAMERA2API enabled, then just flash it (click here (180.45 KB, Downloads: 31) ). Your phone still will be unrooted & you will be able to use GCAM.
