Hi, try to "fastboot boot recovery.img" and from there flash a xiaomi.eu ROM. Then try to change twrp if you don't like the one integrated in the ROM.@nicoff nice guide, but I am having problems installing TWRP (and, consequently, a xiaomi.eu firmware). Specifically a week ago I got unlock authorizations for two phones, a Redmi Note 3 Pro and a Redmi Note 3. Things with Pro went perfectly, install dev version -> unlock -> flash twrp -> flash xiaomi.eu.
On the RN3 I've now spent more than 30 hours (no kidding) trying everything, but I just can't get twrp to execute. I've unlocked the RN3 succesfully, and I can root it from within the MIUI security app. I can fastboot flash the correct twrp image but when I try to enter recovery no TWRP is presented. Instead there's the black/white sketch of phone and cable.
The dev rom was 6.3.x. I also used Miflash to flash 5.12.31. Same result. A nice thing is that flashing with miflash will not relock the BL. Then, I used SP flash tools. This time, after flashing twrp and trying to enter recovery, this is what happens:
Any idea on what to try next?
If you are talking about Mi3 or Mi4, it is necessary to do installation of dev 5.12.17 (IIRC) twice, with full wipe between them. At the end do a full wipe again, and try to install the Mi3/Mi4 MM version. See http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/stable-7-1-3-kxdcnck-to-7-2-8-0-mxdcndb.30753/page-2#post-283388
You could try to download a twrp recovery from xiaomi.eu (first post) and flash it vía updater, too.
