Help installing TWRP on Redmi 6A (cactus)

Aug 25, 2018
Hi Guys,

Sorry if i posted it here but I cant seem to install TWRP on 8.12.13 on a Redmi 6A codename cactus. I have successfully unlocked my device after waiting 15 days and when i tried installing twrp via fastboot on cmd it was successfully being written. But when i boot it, it doesnt boot from twrp but always boot normally. Has anything changed on Redmi 6A? I tried the last 3 versions of TWRP for my device but they always end up the same, which is booting normally after issuing this commands from console.

D:\Downloads>fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Sending 'recovery' (16982 KB) OKAY [ 0.635s]
Writing 'recovery' OKAY [ 0.221s]
Finished. Total time: 0.856s

D:\Downloads>fastboot boot twrp.img
Downloading 'boot.img' OKAY [ 0.546s]
booting OKAY [ 0.063s]
Finished. Total time: 0.617s

Is there anything i have done wrong? My phone status is already unlocked from Developer Options.

Please help. This is the first time that I have encountered this thing, I have been using on my other devices, i.e, (Redmi 2, Redmi 4X, Redmi Note 4X, and Redmi Note 5 whyred) but this is the first time that I havent had any success booting TWRP from my device.

I would really appreciate any help I could get from you guys! I really wanted on my phone, as I always have.

Thank you very much in advance.

#2 won't run on this phone, so don't bother. Your only option is to use the stock ROM at this stage. There is a MIUIPro for this device, but I think I prefer stock global over MIUIPro.
