Hei Redmi 4A fans,

What have we here today? After fiddling around with your Redmi 4A and getting comfortable with it, you might want to explore more like rooting or flashing other custom ROMs or even thinking flashing incremental OTA without breaking it and not having to flash the Full Package ROM. Hence, with the help of Red Wolf or ZCX Recoveries you can attain that. So what is this Red Wolf Recovery?

Redmi 4A-Redwolf-Banner.jpg

Red Wolf Recovery is an alternative custom recovery based on TWRP source code with the main objective of the project to provide stable recovery with features which have not been accepted for addition to the official source code of TWRP. On top of that, it the first recovery to add protection feature with password protection and support incremental OTA.

- Password protection
- Flashlight
- MIUI Incremental OTA Support
- Built-in latest Magisk, SuperSU & AromaFM
- Support two screenshot GUI actions - Power+VolDown to save screenshot in to the internal storage & Power+VolUp to save screenshot in to the external storage (Will be automatically saved in to the internal in case that external storage doesn't exist).
- Support automatic reboot after the restore process
- Recovery can automatically modify some props in the ROM directly during the installation
- Some built-in scripts from community
- Tap to wake support
- Advanced deactivation of the stock recovery
- Automatic deactivation of the dm-verity & forced encryption directly during the installation of the ROM
- Recovery can notify you about the completed backup/restore/installation using the notification diode & vibration.
- Support "set on boot" settings.

* Changes for security reasons *
- ADB isn't starting automatically at the start of the recovery. You have to activate it in recovery
- MTP isn't starting until user enter correct password
- Deactivated TWRP theme engine
