¿Instalaste el TWRP desde geoanto555?
[/CITA]

Yes, I did, and I bricked my phone. Do you know if installing another ROM would fix the problem?
You need to format data. I had the same issue at the start. I hope you backed up your data beforehand.

Necesita formatear los datos. Tuve el mismo problema al principio. Espero que hayas hecho una copia de seguridad de tus datos de antemano.

Old thread, same problem
Where do I find ROM 20.12.09
and can I flash it if I have a newer rom? This is a disaster!

I think I installed global V11.0.11.0.PCOMIXM_20201001.0000.00.9

And this one I can use which TWRP to overcome this maddening encryption problem so I can flash root? For RN8
I see your phone is RN8 and not Redmi8
Rom is following, sorry for my mismatch...
IF issue with dencryption in TWRP, just load the zip rom in your phone SD card and select it in TWRP.
Then install the zip.
That is the perfect way to bypass TWRP encryption issue. (When TWRP is open and ask for PW you hit "cancel" and select SDcard in install section, check it is well mounted.)

I have tried that and it does not work. It gives the dreaded RED ERROR list no matter where I flash from.

Given that I can not use TWRP to flash, that ROM is also unflashable because I can only flash a ROM through FASTBOOT and there is no Flash_all.bat

TWRP:


I can not run anything even by dropping a zip file on the sd card. EVERYTHING is read only from TWRP

Last pic added is from trying to flash a zip that is on the sd card. It says that it was successful but actually it caused the RN8 not to fully boot.

I would like to install the ROM you have posted above but it seems only fastboot roms can be flashed in the state I'm in now

------------------------------------------------------
You ticked "keep read only" in TWRP opening?
Second:
Stop playing with "forceencrypt zip file" . You don't need it for the steps I suggested.
third:
A clean stock rom flash via Miflash would refresh your entire phone and let you restart in a better position.
Fourth:
I can not do more in order to help you from my place. sorry
Did you check the web for any reported case similar your?

NO I have not.

third:
Good because I can't install it anyway

I have done that several times, I am now on a stock rom with no modification at all

So, I managed to find a TWRP version that works. I flashed MAgisk 19.3 and it says it worked but it did not root phone. Ran root check and no root, was not able to even open Magisk Mgr from the app drawer.

The latest official TWRP works now (thanks to our new maintainer). He also maintains PitchBlack recovery which is a good alternative to OrangeFox.
