    Ciao ragazzi, volevo chiedere come installo l'ultima versione per il mio Xiaomi mi4. Ho letto che bisogna installare TWRP come recovery, ma non riesco a dare i permessi di root a flashify. Vi mostro le informazioni sul mio dispositivo nell'immagine sottostante. Inoltre vorrei anche gli aggiornamenti via OTA. Grazie.

    Ciao,

    essendo un forum non solo italiano, per correttezza, scrivi in inglese.

    So, I installed every updates merely through Updater app.
    Updater-Choose update package and the update starts.
    Throughout the update's process you don't touch anything and about 10 minuts later the work it's done and the phone is able to be used.

    But I would like to listen another opinions about that.

    When I have done the updates I didn't install twrp because, in my opinion, it was included in the update's folder.

    Like I wrote, I want to listen another opinion.

    with 6.2.4 the twrp was not included in the rom. If you want it you need to flash it via fastboot.

    yes, starting 6.2.25 or 6.3.3 the change is mandatory.
    But the good thing is that TWRP now allows you to do many things including recovery backup in case a future update goes wrong you can restore your archive. I am with TWRP since 6.2.25, I really don't want to go back!

    I got it and thank you for your opinion.
    But now I don't understand why I actually have twrp on my device though I didn't install it, but only every single Rom with the same way,

    DO you have fastboot on your pc? You'll need it to install TWRP on the phone, then you can install the ROM and get ota's :)

    Windows Guide :

    Download and install adb/fastboot (1.4.2 t0olkit) : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=48915118#post48915118
    (When install do Y (Yes) to all)

    Download TWRP 3.0 for Cancro : https://dl.twrp.me/cancro/

    Put phone in Fastboot mode (Turn off, and boot presing Power and Vol -) and connect it to your PC.

    Go on the directory where you downloaded the twrp, click Shift and do Right Click, open command window here, copy and paste

    fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.0.0-0-cancro.img

    hit enter, then

    fastboot reboot recovery

    enter, now you're in TWRP and you can Install xiaomi.eu ROM.

    You need drivers then, upload a screenshot of Device Manager (Gestione DIspositivi), while the device is connected to the PC via USB.

    Just boot your phone in FASTBOOT (turn off, boot pressing VOLUME - (meno) connect via USB and do the last steps.

    Go on the directory where you downloaded the twrp, click Shift and do Right Click, open command window here, copy and paste

    fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.0.0-0-cancro.img

    hit enter, then

    fastboot reboot recovery

    enter, now you're in TWRP and you can Install xiaomi.eu ROM.

    Keep pressed Power and Volume + (PIù) till the device reboots into recovery.
    Then install XIAOMI.EU zip (vipw dalvik+cache) and reboot to system.

    Tieni premuto il pulsante d'accensione e volume su per entrare in recovery.

    Oppure fastboot reboot, ti riavvia in sistema e da li torni nella recovery, mi sono scordato che non si può riavviare in recovery da fastboot.

    I'm downloading the lastest release 6.3.17, now i've a question, sorry if i write in Italian.
    Dato che non conosco TWRP, ti volevo chiedere, se apro l'app updater, e cerco il file zip nel cell (devo rinominare il file zip in update.zip?) funziona? Cioè si riavvierà in recovery mode e poi in automatico si aggiorna? Grazie mille per il tuo aiuto.
