Make sure you have followed the steps properly. Don’t Skip and Read! – We are not responsible for any damage that you make to your phone.

Assuming you have installed the ADB and Fastboot on your laptop and PC.
    • Now turn on USB debugging. You can do it with these tips. Or, 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
    • On it and also on the 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 fully 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, run the following command:

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 anyone encounters that you cannot flash or it says 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.
