[Q&A] Redmi 6 Global Stable Cannot install TWRP using fastboot flash recovery

Hi! Today I pasted my 15 days temporal block, so I was ablo to unlock my Redmi 6 phone.

The unlock seems OK: I see the open-lock icon during bootstrap and I read OEM Unlok: Unlocked and Mi Unlock Status: Unlocked into Developer options. I tried the standard recipe to install the TWRP recovery, once rebooted in bootloader I executed from the PC:
fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.3.0-0-cereus.img
fastboot boot twrp-3.3.0-0-cereus.img
The first command seems OK, no errors are reported. But the following reboot brings the regular operating system, not Recovery at all. The image I used is the official twrp-3.3.0-0-cereus.img. If I reboot in recovery, I still find the stock Mi-Recovery 3.0.

The phone is updated to the MIUI Global 10.3 Stable (OCGMIXM).

Does anybody have any clue? Thank you.

The install method for twrp has changed .
  The following link tutorial is for latest twrp & not as in link description.
    You could just use a previous version not optimised for Pie & A/B partitions.
   Don't forget to flash lazyflasher

Hi Sarge7, thank you for your reply!

The problem is not installing TWRP, but booting it for the first time! My Redmi 6 model M1804C3DG, with system MIUI Global 10.3 Stable is running Android 8.1.0 (does not have default FBE File-based Encryption) and it does not have the A/B partition scheme.

I have solved the problem following the recipe contained in this post. The required trick is to flash two partitions: the regular recovery partition (using the TWRP image) and a partition named para (using a small file named misc.bin). If I understand well, flashing that second partition, disables the mechanism which will restore to factory recovery on each reboot.

Once started TWRP, I did the following:
  • Mounted System and Vendor partitions.
  • Executed Sign Boot from Advanced menu.
  • Installed which I already copied to /sdcard.

Please, can you explain to me if LazyFlasher is really needed? It seems that my phone is OK: system is running fine, root is available, TWRP recovery is available. Thanks!

Hi , that's very interesting .I've always used an older version of twrp so I've never encountered the problems users are facing now .
   Like yourself I'm going to have to research method & educate myself .
  As you booted with no problem you obviously did not need lazyflasher.
  I've only used it & not fully understood it's purpose as the majority of tutorials I've read have said it's important especially when using Miui to flash it to patch boot image after rooting & to prevent bootloop as well as other things which quite honestly I don't understand .
