Mi 8 dipper Installation Problem TWRP Recovery


Dec 21, 2022

This is my first time doing custom ROM flashing so I am very inexperienced. I am trying to install eu ROM on Mi 8 dipper running on Android 10 MIUI 12.5.2 stable China. I followed the offical instructions as per the threads and when it comes to the recovery part things get messy. I used TWRP.ME as the link to TWRP no longer exists.

Whenever I attempt to fastboot after the powershell instructions (fastboot flash recovery twrp.img) and then press power+volume up to boot to recovery, the phone gets on a loop showing only the mi logo and reboots to the mi logo and so on. When I let it run for a while it boots normally and goes back to the stock ROM. I am very confused about what did I do wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you all in advance.
