Hei Redmi Note 8 Pro users,
TWRP now supports the Redmi Note 8 Pro officially.
Team Win Recovery Project is an open-source software custom recovery image for Android-based devices. It provides a touchscreen-enabled interface that allows users to install third-party firmware and back up the current system which are functions often unsupported by stock recovery images.
Redmi Note 8 Pro have a bootloader that require additional steps to unlock before you are able to flash custom images. This typically involves using MI Unlock Tool to apply & wait for certain time period to have your device unlocked.
You will need to follow the steps on Xiaomi's MIUI website in order to unlock your device.
Redmi Note 8 Pro uses Android Verified Boot (AVB) which means that installing TWRP or swiping to allow system modifications will prevent you from being able to boot. To bypass AVB's boot prevention, you will have to disable it or install a custom ROM that ships with disabled AVB.
WARNING: This device hard bricks really easily for unknown reasons. Don't flash TWRP unless you are an advanced user who knows what you doing.
