15 November of 2017 user Lefey from 4PDA provided TWRP Recovery (based on 3.1.1 cofface) with write protection of bootloader (aboot/abootbak partitions). Idea: peter23. Original post link here.

Why I need it?

This recovery gives an opportunity to install every ROM on every Mi 5X (with Oxygen/Tiffany bootloader) without bricking the device. With this recovery you don't able to replace emmc_appsboot.mbn in ROMs for succesfull installation on Mi 5X with Oxygen bootloader. Also this recovery protects your Mi 5X Tiffany from Mi 5X Oxygen firmwares/bootloaders.

If you don't know what are Mi 5X Tiffany and Mi 5X Oxygen, please read this thread first.

How it works?

When you start your phone in recovery mode, TWRP sets symlinks for aboot and abootbak partitions to /dev/null. After that writing data to this partitions completes without any errors, but really partitions aren't overwriting. Reading data from this partitions gives an empty file.

Description

  • Installing Root from "Advanced" tab (Advanced - Root Phone). Only for Mi 5X Tiffany.
  • Disable "boot" verify from "Advanced" tab (Advanced - Disable Verify). It's necessary for official ROM's. You should repeat this steps after every ROM update if you have official firmware installed. Also if TWRP during startup requests permissions for modifying "system", you should allow it. This secures your recovery from erasing by original ROM during startup.
  • Ability to backup all phone's partitions.
  • During first statup English language will be setted by default.
  • No scroll icon in the middle of screen.
  • For ability to mount "data" in TWRP you should format it: "Wipe - Format Data". Your data will be erased. This functional added for situations, when TWRP requests password for decrypting partition.

Installation via ADB

  • Bootloader must be unlocked.
  • Download and install drivers (run as admimistrator).
  • Download adb.
  • Download Recovery. Unpack this archive in adb folder.
  • Turn your phone into Fastboot mode (press and hold "Power" + "Vol -" buttons).
  • Connect your phone to PC.
  • In adb folder hold Shift button and rightclick to empty space of Explorer, then open command window.
  • Type in command window:
    1. fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
    Copy the Code
  • Reboot your phone in Recovery mode (press and hold "Power" + "Vol +" buttons).

Installation via TWRP

  • Download Recovery and unpack it on SD card or your phone's root folder of internal memory.
  • Reboot to TWRP (press and hold "Power" + "Vol +" buttons).
  • Select "Install".
  • Click "Install image".
  • Search for downloaded "twrp.img" and select it.
  • Select "Recovery" partition and do swipe.
  • Reboot your phone in TWRP (press "Home", then "Reboot - Recovery").

Hi Friends, I have a Xiaomi 5X with oxygen bootloader,

I currently have MIUI Global 8.5 Stable

Yes, you can. Just install this TWRP, then copy your firmware ZIP (for recovery) to your device or sdcard, then wipe system, data, ART/Dalvik, cache and install desired ROM.

I know, but much easier is to do it by TWRP, if it is possible.

I recommend you install localized firmware (i.e. Xiaomi.eu stable 9.0.3.0). You can install it using THIS TWRP.
