I would like to thank both @Iain_B and @Blastboom Strice for their replies. (for my Mi 10)

So using USB-OTG you can instantly use the twrp I have now and safely upgrade some versions up until I reach the newest one?
Depends on what twrp you have. There is the little turtle, the 1206 and the latest mbtwrp (3.5.0). In the guide I shared I've given some info about them. Probably nobody has tried using the mbtwrp with versions before February as it appeared only lately. I think the first upgrade should be done by booting (fastboot boot twrp.img) into the 1206 twrp and the second )to the todays) rom by flashing (fastboot flash recovery twrp.img) and using the mbtwrp.

Now, it may be a good idea to take a backup before you start updating and after you finish updading.

About the issues twrp have (since it's too early for ~eveeyone yet):
The 1206 should be booted (fastboot boot), not flashed (fastboot flash). It is considered unstable (though for some reason it is coming with many roms during January and February, but anyways :emoji_laughing:).
The mbtwrp should (probably) be flashed, not booted.
You ~mustn't have both twrps on the same system. Thus, it's ~better to flash the new mbtwrp to wipe the old preventing any conflicts and recovery bootloops.
You shouldn't probably restore backups made with other twrp versions (though it might just be a mbtwrp bug, needs further investigation).
About the mbtwrp, I have managed to make a backup, but ~failed restoring it.

Hello everybody!

I am fairly new to all of this. So I have installed 20.12.28/29 version in my Mi 10. I want to upgrade to the current version but I have some questions.
  1. Dirty flash means that I must boot the new TWRP thourgh the Tortoise TWRP 3.41 so as to upgrade to the new version then go recovery and then to the zip file? Can this be done without using fastboot and Pc commands?
  2. If I do this will I lose any data? Last time I installed in the version I am now for it to work I had to wipe everything in my phone and format the data (I think I clicked wipe cache and dalvik cache too) for the update to be done. So for some time, I am scared to update to the newest version that is released each week for that reason.
As soon as you already with 20.12.28 android 11 you have to update to the latest developer rom 21.3.3 the same way as you did before and after update your recovery will be changed to the new one .. nothing more ..

Blur effect randomly missing in notifications background, same problem is present in the notifications shade.
The issue present itself either in MIUI and Android style.
Is this one a known bug?

Just tested the 3.5.1 out myself. I've checked the backup on this new version. It requires less space than the previous one. So that's good - back to what it was. I did a backup. Copied it to my PC. Copied it back again, and restored. Just checked a banking app and that went straight in. I've rebooted a couple of times both into Recovery, and System. All seems fine! :)
[Edit: Just rebooted into Recovery again, and re-installed this week's ROM, and Magisk. Again, banking apps and everything else still fine.]
[Edit2: When I re-installed, I of course cleared Dalvik & cache, and deleted the
/data/system/package_cache folder, as usual. Oh yes, the delete cache check-box is back to the old position. Make sure you get it right!]

Haha, finally, an ~all-around working twrp!
(On my previous phone, ulefone vienna, mtk, there was ~only one which I flashed after ~2years of trying... And with that phone, mi 10, the twrp was semi-working ~until now.)

Updating one weekly ROM to another weekly ROM (so long as there is not a large gap), you should not need to do anything except install the later one over the top (dirty flash). So you should not need to delete any data. :)

My phone keeps restarting after the update. I hope that the problem will be solved and updated as soon as possible! Thank you
When you installed this week's ROM, did you clear the Dalvik & cache, and delete the /data/system/package_cache folder?
This seems to be your phone, not the ROM.

Mi 11 running 21.3.3, I have 2 SIM cards, I can receive SMS fine on both but whenever I send an SMS the app always insists on using SIM 2.
I can't find anywhere to set the default to SIM 1. Even in the messages app if I select SIM 1, type a message and tap send, it does not send (or even show up in the app).

As soon as I disable SIM 2 in the settings menu, I can send SMS okay from SIM 1.
The SMSC is correct on both SIMs

Anyone got an idea?

Try to flash the previous rom(?) you had before updating.
You didn't flash a beta onto a stable, right?

Btw, if you don't, try to use a download manager. It seems to really speed up the download (I got a new twrp today in almost half a minute, while before I use it chrome said it would take ~6-9mins).
Check out fdm.
@tayfun1459 (now though it's probably better to continue your download as already ~20mins have passed.)
