    I buy Xiaomi and I want to install firmware.
    By default my phone have stable miui 7
    So usint SP_Flash_tool, I install henessy_images_6.6.17_20160523.0000.23_5.0_cn fastboot ROM.
    After I enable USB debugging
    I unlock bootloader
    I install adb on my pc
    using adb I install twrp-3.0.2-0-henessy.img
    but when I trying to start in recovery mode, I still can see recovery menu, I get just image of connect USB to phone.

    Where is my mistake?

    May be it is possible to install using SP_Flash_tool? Where can I get fastboot ROM of In all ROM i find, there is no MT6795_Android_scatter.txt file

    Just to make it clear - you successfully unlocked your bootloader?

    If yes, I advise using fastboot rather than adb to flash twrp. Reason is, you can then issue the command to boot into that version of twrp you are installing. To quote the instructions, the following definitely works (if you have unlocked your bootloader):

    fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
    fastboot boot twrp.img

    Issue the flash command first. When it looks like you have success, issue the second command. It will take a moment but will then boot you into twrp - if you don't do this, it defaults to the stock recovery. Also, a trick to getting to twrp in future is looking within the ROM - check for updates - three dots at top - option to reboot to recovery - very easy!

    Good luck!
