Hello, Redmi Note 4X/SD users...,

Introduction:
              Here I present an easy step by step
guide to ROOT & install TWRP for Redmi Note 4X and Redmi Note 4 SD devices. Specially for those, having problem with @feds64 's Tut. I also had problem with that tut. So, thought of making this tut to help others as I've solved mine and installed TWRP on my RN4X successfully!

Prerequisite:
    1. Unlocked Bootloader (How to guides> Link-1, Link-2)

   
2. USB DATA cable (Original One).

    3. Windows PC with Disabled Driver Signature Enforcement (How to guide>Link)


   
4. adb & fastboot drivers installed (Check this thread for driver installation help>Link)

   
5. Developer options & USB Debugging Enabled (How to: Settings > About phone > tap MIUI version 7 times > Developer   Options unloceked. Now again, Settings > Additional settings > Developer options > USB Debugging> Turn On)

    6. Minimum 50% Charged Phone Battery.


Preparation:
   
1. Download adb_fastboot_tools.zip and extract in your PC (Somewhere you can access easily).

     2. Download twrp-3.1.1-0-mido.img and move it to
'adb_fastboot_tools' folder, created when you extracted 'adb_fastboot_tools.zip' file (See the picture below).

You can use other TWRP images for mido too. Here are two other twrps(themed)...,recovery-RR-Themed.img & recovery-Golden-Themed.img

   3. Download BETA-SuperSUv2.79 SR3 & Dm-verity and Forced Encryption Disabler 5.1 and copy both .zip files to your phone memory (See the picture below). These 2 files will be necessary to root you device.



Process:

Part-1(flashing twrp):

                       1. Switch Off your Device. T
hen hold Power & Volume Down button simultaneously until it vibrates and Mi logo appears in your phone screen. Your device is now in 'fastboot mode' you'll see the Mi Bunny doing some tweaking with Droid! Move on and Plug in your USB Data Cable & connect your phone with your PC / Laptop.

                 2. Now open the
'adb_fastboot_tools' folder you created earlier and Run "cmd.exe" as Administrator...,(See the picture below).


              3. In the CMD window...,write the following code and hit Enter!
  1. fastboot devices
Copy the Code

This will display your device id and ensure that your device is properly connected and you're ready to go.

           4. Now write the following code and hit Enter to start flashing twrp recovery..,
  1. fastboot flash recovery twrp_mido.img
Copy the Code


Note:
in the code "twrp_mido.img" is the name of my twrp image located in 'adb_fastboot_tools' folder. You've to change it according  to your twrp image name.
Example, if your twrp image name is "twrp-3.1.1-0-mido.img" then your CMD code will be>
  1. fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.1.1-0-mido.img
Copy the Code
          5. TWRP will be flashed, now write the following code and hit Enter...,>
  1. fastboot boot twrp_mido.img
Copy the Code


Note: in the code "twrp_mido.img" is the name of my twrp image, located in 'adb_fastboot_tools' folder. You've to change it according  to your twrp image name.
Example, if your twrp image name is "twrp-3.1.1-0-mido.img" then your CMD code will be>
  1. fastboot boot twrp-3.1.1-0-mido.img
Copy the Code
Edit: Now wait for 5-10 seconds (suggested by@Caylean, earlier I thought it's not that important but looks like it can cause heratachefor some)! If you did everything correctly, you'll see the TWRP recovery interface...,asking to allow system modifications.

You've successfully flashed twrp recovery in your device.

Part-2 (Root and bootloop issue fix):
                  In the twrp screen, swipe right. By doing so...,you will trigger dm-verity, and it will cause bootloop issue! But don't worry my friend, just install the zip files (
BETA-SuperSU v2.79 SR3.zip & Dm-verity and Forced Encryption Disabler 5.1.zip) you  copied earlier in your phone memory.

Choose install and then browse to the location where you copied the .zip files...,then select 'BETA-SuperSU v2.79 SR3.zip' and install it. Do the same with 'Dm-verity and Forced Encryption Disabler 5.1.zip.'

This will root your device and fix the bootloop issue which occurs in MIUI ROM!


Result:
           
You'll have twrp flashed and rooted your device...,and ready to do all kind of customization, tweaking, rom/kernel flashing etc...,


Declaimer:
This tut is based on @feds64's tut, but Elaborated and modified for better understanding. Thanks to Boss Man @feds64 for his great stuffs!

Troubleshoot and QA...,
Here I'm trying to answer a few basic and frequently asked questions/issues regarding this tut, hope it helps...,

Q.1: Will it void warranty?
Ans: Yes, it will.

Q.2: Will it get OTA updates after flashing TWRP & root?
Ans: The answer is yes...,official TWRP 3.1.1 supports OTA update! At least for weekly Beta updates. I got OTA update of 7.6.22 while using 7.6.15(rooted)! The thing is Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) & all newer versions support only systemless root. Systemless root doesn't affect the system, it only patches the boot image. You'll have root without touching your system. Conclusion is OTA isn't affected by root.

Q.3: Will this tut work with MIUI version XXXX.X.X?
The tut works with MIUI 8.2.4(stable) to MIUI 9 (7.9.15 Global Beta), I've tested myself. So, it should work with other MIUI versions(like China Stable or beta) too but I can't guarantee that as I've not tested.

Issue-1: Having problem with Super SU!
PS:Try other versions of Super SU, you can find theme here>>>http://www.supersu.com/download Or use 'Magisk - Root & Universal Systemless Interface' you can find all Magisk related information and download links here>>> https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445

PS: Use Magisk or use latest SuperSU V2.82 (suggested bybhaszry)or try these solutions>>> Link-1, Link-2 by  AlvaroTom.


Final Note: Any comment or suggestion about this tut will be greatly appreciated...,besides, feel free to comment your issues you encountered during the whole process. I'll try my best to reply your comments.

Hi, thanks for the tuto ! But i got one problem.. i rebooted to Fastboot mode, but after plug in my phone to the PC, the command adb devices returns nothing.. as if the phone was not connected... And the phone is correctly detected when booted.. Any advice ? thanks !
Edit : in fact it worked even if the "adb devices" command returned nothing.. i used the fastboot command and installation and reboot were OK !

Thanks !
