Restart phone in fastboot mode, hold volume down and power button at the same time.

Start Command Prompt and boot TWRP-image.
Code:
"%LOCALAPPDATA%\MiPhoneManager\main\fastboot" boot "C:\Path\to\TWRP\twrp-3.0.0-0-cancro.img"
(This might work in Vista and newer Windowses. Any fastboot should do it.)

Any idea if installing TWRP and SuperSu this way will affect future ROM updates from xiaomi.eu?

D you know why there is no root in the current MM ROM? Is it likely to be added in again later? If that's the case I'll just wait for it to be part of the official ROM.

I don't think so as I update with TWRP several times and no issue occurs.. But don't use updater app as it's change the recovery from TWRP to Mirecovery.

Use this guide, it does not install TWRP, only boot it once.

Su binary is in place and can be used through shell, only Android application side is not working. I'm pretty sure Xiaomi or xiaomi.eu people fix it soon.

No. Mi PC Suite installs drivers and has fastboot executable so no need to get it elsewhere. TWRP-image is booted once with fastboot directly from computer without installing it.

I installed miui 7 6.0.1 on the first Official eu miui mm release and had twrp installed instead of Just booting . Root installed and working. Problem is i can't install downloaded roms anymore . I get message can't mount system. Only thing i can do is installing my twrp backup from mm installation i made (and i'm happy i made this!) again. Think i have to wait till next ota to overwrite my twrp recovery by mi recovery again. Or has someone another way to fix this. ( an image of the new mi recovery to flash? ) Is someone working on an updated twrp? Will fast boot flashing work with the new enlarged partition and what version will work?
