Hi!
TWRP 3 Released!

TWRP 3 Guide and Download for RedmiNote2/Prime:



How to flash TWRP 2.8.7 Materialised Theme on RedmiNote2/Prime
Easily!



you can see some screenshots of this version here:


Screenshot_2015-08-29-11-59-56.png Screenshot_2015-08-29-12-00-00.png Screenshot_2015-08-29-12-00-08.png Screenshot_2015-08-29-12-00-03.png Screenshot_2015-08-29-12-00-25.png Screenshot_2015-08-29-12-00-29.png

I give the links where needed, not at the end of the thread or hidden link or ''Please reply to view this thread'' stuff like that for any purposes, I make it Simple and Ingenuous.



Just follow me, Its a breeze!


Requirements:

1)RedmiNote2/Prime

2)Micro USB Cable

3)PC or Laptop Running Windows Os(7 or newer ones)

4)TWRP Ready! and Downloading and Installing MiFlash


tutorial:

1)Download and install MiFlash



Both Miflash versions working fine, tested by me many times.


2)Switch off your RedmiNote2/Prime


3)Press and hold Power button + Volume down button till you see this/Lead your device into Fastboot mode:

1108139gglg2z9oavc96ou.jpg.thumb.jpg


4)connect your RedmiNote2/Prime to the USB port using cable(in using PC Case connect the cable to main motherboard ports/ports locatd back of the PC Case, No HUBs, No subsidiary ones)


5)Download and Unzip or extract TWRP.


TWRP 2.8.7 Materialisd Theme:



6)Find and copy the twrp.img in the folder you unziped earlier.

sshot-1.jpg


7)Locate this path and Paste the TWRP in the android folder

C:/Program Files(x86)/Xiaomi/MiPhone/Google/Android

in this folder you will find files like adb.exe,fastboot.exe,AdbWinApi.dll, etc

sshot-5.jpg


8)Here hold down the Shift key and press the right mouse button. You will see as below.

sshot-2.jpg


9)Click Open Command Window here to run CMD.

sshot-3.jpg


10)Now type

  1. fastboot devices
Copy the Code
So CMD will check fastboot devices and rocognises your device as bellow.

sshot-4.jpg


11)Now Listen!

If you want to boot into TWRP just one time type this:

  1. fastboot boot twrp.img
Copy the Code

And if you want to flash TWRP and use it permanently type this:

  1. fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Copy the Code
and Enter.


Note!

1)By typing the first command for booting once, phone will boot into recovery, and by booting to system, TWRP will be gone and now you have your previous Recovery/Mi Recovery replaced.


2)the name ''twrp'' in these commands stand for the name of the recovery you coppied earlier in the folder. You can rename it to whatever you want, i.e, ''IloveMyRedmiNote2'' and type ''fasboot flash recovery IloveMyRedmiNote2.img''LOL!

here we install it permanently, so we type second one.


In a blink of an eye!

sshot-6.jpg


Done!


Now disconnect your RedmiNote2/Prime and hold the power button to turn it off. when done, press and hold Power button + Volume up button to turn it on. When the phone vibrated and turned on release power button but still hold the Volume Up till you See the TeamWin TWRP.


Note!

1)You can install any desired recovery by this method.

2)In many cases after updating MIUI, the TWRP will be gone and Mi Recovery will be back! If so, you need to install it again.

Important Note!
If in the first boot into TWRP you got this message:

"TWRP has detected an unmodified partition. TWRP can leave your partition unmodified to make it easier for you to take official updates. TWRP will be unable to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP and will not offer to root your device. installing zips or performing adb operations may still modify the system partition."

So, swipe the message to Allow the modification, so TWRP has your permission and confirmation to modify the recovery partition and it's operations.
If you ignore the message(by choosing back), after finishing some operations, by touching some options or ''Reboot System'' option, TWRP gets stuck and leaves no choice to us but taking the battery out and install it again.

I'm eagerly waiting for your feedback.
At Last!

Special Thanks to my friend, and a nice(in my idea and the best!) MIUI Device Team Member
So, be thankful to him too!


Good Luck! and have a nice time!

I stil can not get it to work...
I get in CMD

writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  0.415s]
finished. total time: 1.106s

C:\Program Files (x86)\Xiaomi\MiPhone\Google\Android>
"
That seems okay to me. But when I start in boot mode I still get the Xiaomi boot.
I use MIUI Global 7.1 | Stable 7.1.2.0(LHMMICK).

Is there someone who can give some direction od waht I am doing wrong?

Hello!

Im here to, first give a big thanks to author for this great tutorial, and all the help provided.

My device: redmi note 2 with miui 7.

Followed the tutorial to flash twrp. After i got a notification to update to 7.1, i downloaded the OTA package, reboot to recovery - TWRP, flash the zip file with success, wipe cache - also it gives you the change to root it.

After the flash operation i reboot to recovery just to check if TWRP survived to the flash procedure - and it did, TWRP still works.

Again, thank you for this amazing tutorial, and to all the help.
Regards.
