Hello guys! Yesterday I installed the latest version available for the redmi note 8 (xiaomi.eu_multi_HMNote8_V12.0.1.0.RCOCNXM_v12-11.zip) and after installing I can no longer root the phone and even using twrp, I can no longer format or delete the data partition (in the twrp log shows a series of error messages) . Has anyone had this problem?

I'm sorry, staying unrooted. TWRP is root enough for me.
But if something should work inside OS, then it shoud be a magisk version...

twrp-3.5.A9-ginkgo-geoanto555.img

This one still works good for me.
this twrp cannot dirty upgrade rom (i have to format data to reboot to system, same as clean flash)

Which ROM exactly? I have been using it for weeklies for a while now, dirty flashes, no issues.
i wanna dirty upgrade from stable 12.0.1 to 12.0.3 android 11, if i dont format data after flashing then only reboot to twrp, not to system

That still is probably not connected to the TWRP but most likely has something to do with android versions/ROM/etc. If there are no errors in the TWRP. Have you checked the MD5 of the file you are installing?

no, geoanto555 said after flashing andoid 11 with his twrp you have to format data to reboot to system (else will only reboot to twrp, android 10 have not that issue)

Yes, but still has nothing to do with the TWRP. It's about upgrading from Android 10 to Android 11, whatever recovery you would use you'd have to format data partition.

no, this is upgrade from stable android 11 12.0.1 to stable android 11 12.0.3
with android 10 before, i dirty flash to update without any issues but cannot do like that with android 11 anymore

If this is the somewhat peculiar case then your Android 10 will probably use the old encryption that was working with the mauronofrio TWRP which you could use to flash the A11 and then continue with geoanto's from there on in order to have a decrypt method for the new encryption.
