Hei Redmi Note 4/4X SD fans,

What have we here today? After fiddling around with your Redmi Note 4/4X 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 Note 4 - Mido_Tool_Banner.png

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.

RedWolf-V3.2_027
- If screen is turned off then automatically detect AROMA Installer package and unblank screen before starting the update binary which is going to call AROMA GUI, so we won't be stuck at the black screen since AROMA engine require screen to be turned on.
- Added ability to change OTA Survival driver properties from the recovery GUI, allowing recovery to support "out of the box" almost all incremental OTA updates from different OEMs/custom ROMs out there (as long as they have correctly formatted metadata).
- Notify user about the current activity of the deactivation process - that's handled under the console
- Improved dumwolf driver
- Removed the vibration feedback from all GUI elements
- Automatically resize bootable partitions during nandroid backups
- Changed theme to black/white/red style based on @TBO material theme
- Data files aren't anymore saved on the storage partitions, which means that we're now able to survive even encrypted device.
- Some bug fixes and improvements...
