Legit question.

Back in 2018 i had a mi mix 3 5g (terrible phone, no updates) and around that time i tried pixel experience rom and end up with my persist partition broken, i'd get security popups saying they couldn't use xiaomi track service and stuff like that. At the time i was told it happened because i installed TWRP, and it tampered with the persist partiton.
That being said, i have a chinese MI 11 to arrive this week and want to install xiaomi.eu rom. Will i damage the persist partition by doing so? Is there any way to backup it before installing TWRP?
Thanks.

normally you will not damage the persist-partition. you can backup it with this commands

- adb pull /persist C:\backup\persist_bkp.img
- dd if=/dev/block/by-name/persist of=/sdcard/persist_bkp.img (rooted devices)

If the persist-partition is damaged, you can flash a stock rom (miflash) - sometimes it will be restored

PS: At the moment the Mi11 (venus) weekly rom is recovery (twrp) and the stable is fastboot rom

Hmm with the mi mix flashing the stock rom wouldn't solve the issue, there was a guy on telegram that fixed the partition.img by editing it, then i remember restoring it using cmd...
Great so i can install the stable version without TWRP, where can i check the latest mi 11 stable fastboot version available?

I think these are the steps i should do, correct me if im wrong please;
Download the eu rom file, extract it on the pc, connect the phone while its on fastboot mode and in the pc i need to choose the first install option..
Am i right? Or i should first move to stock rom or something..

it depends on your device and if you want to install a fastboot or recovery rom file

for the redmi note 10s do you have to type this? "fastboot flash boot twrp.img"
because "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" outputs this (remote: partition [recovery] doesn't exist)

then you have a A/B device and you have to use
# fastboot boot twrp

look here:
https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/howto-install-recovery-image.66211/
i tried also "fastboot boot twrp.img" as shown in many tutorials

but it outputs this FAILED (status read failed (Too many links))



with "fastboot flash boot twrp.img" it was possible for me to boot twrp and install miui 13.
I'm just wondering why I had to do it that way and you don't get any information about it here in the thread

the root cause for "too many links" could be so different, try another "fastboot & adb tool" version

then you are are lucky guy :)

Newer devices with A/B partition scheme don't have a recovery partition, instead it's included in the "boot" partition, but flashing directly to boot partition won't work as it comes with other stuff, like the kernel. "Install recovery ramdisk" unpacks the boot partition and replaces the stock recovery ramdisk that's bundled in it, then repacks the boot partition with the new ramdisk and flashes it.

After booting the twrp as suggested, I can't access my internal storage. Is there anything I'm not getting right?

I just wanted to install the miui 13 after the unlock and the miflash_unlock-en-6.5.406.31.zip is the official latest tool to unlock it and it also contains all drivers and fastboot. so it has everything i need for the purpose

I don't see rosemary listed. Are you trying to install the mojito ROM? If it works it works, I guess.

I'm mostly concerned with TWRP...
this is available
now i've tried pretty much all usb ports and on 2 different usb 2.0 ports the command "fastboot boot twrp.img" runs through with OK. But when the redmi note 10s restarts, it does not load the TWRP but boots the system.

AFAIK, it's not recommended to play with Persist partition (incl. even restoring your own Persist backup) because you can loose some info specific to your device. I didn't play with but I've seen discussions about a year or two ago (unhappy users who complained about and about Xiaomi for that)

Anyway, with root, you can backup Persist through adb:
adb shell
su
dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/persist of=/sdcard/persist.img

persist.img will be saved to Internal memory

To restore, replace the source (if=) with the target (of=) and vice versa

You can do the same through Terminal app, however without:
adb shell

Some versions of custom recoveries like special builds of TWRP, SHRP, BPRP, Orange Fox can opt you to flash persist.img to Persist, or they can even allow to choose Persist partition when taking Backup and Restore
