How to install/use any TWRP recovery

You can easily find your phone custom recovery using the forum.

1. Your phone need to be recognized by your pc, if it's not recognized please install Xiaomi USB drivers (usually included in Mi PC Suite http://pcsuite.mi.com).  
2. Download Android ADB and Fastboot directly from Google repository
  Please reply to view this thread.
and extract the content of  "platform-tools" folder in "C:/ADB" or from here (suggested)
  Please reply to view this thread.
and simply install it.
3. Rename your *.img file in recovery.img and move it to ADB folder (usually in C: drive).
4. Boot your phone into fastboot mode
pressing and holding volume down + power key and subsequently releasing power key after some seconds.
5. Connect your Xiaomi phone to your PC with the USB cable.
6. Search for cmd in Windows search bar and right click on it => "Run as administrator".
7.Type in the command prompt
  1. cd C:\ADB
Copy the Code
and press Enter, you will move to ADB folder (if installed in a different path please replace "C:\ADB" with your installation path, e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\ADB").
8. Type
  1. fastboot devices
Copy the Code
and press Enter just to be sure your device is correctly recognized.
9. Type
  1. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Copy the Code
and press Enter to flash the recovery (Warning: this is permanent and will replace your Mi Recovery and you'll lose your warranty) or type
  1. fastboot boot recovery.img
Copy the Code
and press Enter if you want to use the recovery without flashing it.
10. Type
  1. fastboot reboot
Copy the Code
and press Enter to reboot your device after the flash is complete.

11. First time you boot in recovery you will shown a TWRP screen asking to allow modifications to system partition. Personally, I choose always Keep read only to have no issues with my ROM. If you want to know more about this visit this page.




Warning! Since MIUI 7 Developer ROM 6.1.14 your bootloader is probably locked and you couldn't be able to install unofficial non-MIUI recovery, if you have a locked bootloader have a look at this.

Warning n° 2! If you want back the Mi Recovery please download your xiaomi device fastboot image from here and extract the recovery.img file, then follow the steps below to flash it.

Warning n° 3! Some Mediatek CPU Chipset devices don't support fastboot mode.

I get any one of these, depending on how the file is named:

"FAILED<remote: dtb not found>"
"FAILED<remote: remote image is not an image>"
"FAILED<remote: partition table doesn't exist>"

What can I do? Is it a Bootloader issue? I'm on MIUI7, with a mi3.

Thankyou
