Hi.

This weekend i'll get permission to unlock bootloader in my Redmi 6 Pro (~2 weeks ago i received a 13.16 days waiting time in MiFlash Unlock).

I'd like to know some details more about what i'm going to make:
1/ MiFlash Unlock -> Unlock device (all data will be lost) -> No problem with this
2/ Install official TWRP through FastBoot
3/ Put stable xiaomi.eu ROM (MIUI v10.0.5 currently) on an USB and install it after OTG mount, or use a microSD instead.

My doubts about the process:
- Does official work, or do i need modded TWRP (and if so, which one)?
- Will i have to install TWRP twice, as i've read elsewhere? It would be absurd, but it's a minor problem.
- Someone said that afther that, stock recovery is back and you can't install TWRP again (this sounds weird to me, xiaomi.eu ROM ins't intended to restore stock recovery)
- Anti RollBack. Doing this will avoid me to downgrade to 10.0.2 if this 10.0.5 has bugs? Is there any way to upgrade the ROM without "upgrade" de ARB minimum version?

But the main and really really important question is:
- Assuming hat installing xiaomi.eu ROM doesn't restore stock recovery... The installed ROM is updateable through OTA?

Official twrp works fine. No need to search for another. Flashing it once through fastboot should be fine. I've flashed it though twrp again just in case (redmi 5 note problem). Stock recovery may be back if you boot official rom after twrp install. So don't do this just flash xiaomi.eu. Even beta is good for daily use. Arb can be a problem if you want older Android version. Check what "fastboot getvar anti" sais before flash. Mine gave nothing. And after flash still nothing.
Unlock bootloader (should be 360 hrs)
Fastboot flash twrp
Fastboot boot twrp
Format data in twrp (to get access to internal storage)
Flash twrp.img (optional)
Insert memory card or USB otg
Reboot recovery or mount memory card/usb
Wipe cache, dalvick internal storage
Flash your rom (miuipro in my case) from memory card/usb
Boot your rom
That's what i did on my 2 redmi 6 pro devices.

Thanks for your confirmation (in fact, it's the standard procedure i've used with 4X, Note 4X and 5).

Are your devices updating through OTA without any problems?
