Hei Redmi Note 8 Pro fans,

What have we here today? After fiddling around with your Redmi Note 8 Pro and getting comfortable with it, you might want to explore more like rooting or flashing other custom ROMs and explore the new frontier of your device. Hence, with the help of Unofficial TWRP Recovery you can attain that. So what is new with the TWRP 3.3.1-9 recovery for Redmi Note 8 Pro?

What's new in TWRP 3.3.1-9?
Supports TWRP 3.3.1 functions
Supports English and Chinese
Supports MTP

Magisk vs SuperSU to gain root access
The main difference between Magisk and SuperSU is how root affects the system. SuperSU changes the system files and adds new files to the system partition on the phone. Google Safety Net is an API that monitors the system and will block certain apps from working if tampering is detected. Magisk is a “systemless” root as it modifies the boot partition and leaves the system files untouched. Hence, since all the system files are intact, SafetyNet can be tricked into thinking everything is normal. With systemless method it allows users to enjoy apps like Google Pay, Netflix, and Pokemon GO without sacrificing root access. Bottom line, it's all down to your preference of rooting.

ifelixit Flasher Toolkit is a hassle-free flasher for multi-purpose tasking. To conveniently flash TWRP or alternative recoveries with a few click or other repeatitve designated task
