Apologies first time TRWP user here can you clarify which option is best for the Mi 11 ultra on Xiaomi EU Rom do I flash current TWRP, Onekey injection or Recovery ramdisk? Which one is best once TWRP has booted up for the first time. Thanks.
Is your device already on Android 12, which Build-Number to you have?

My Mi Ultra was on 13.0.12.0 SKACNXM (installed with Fastboot Rom).
To update the rom to 13.0.13.0 SKACNXM (which needs to be installed with TWRP) I used TWRP from here:
https://dl.akr-developers.com/?dir=skkk/TWRP/A12/v5.6_A12
[BOOT]3.6.2_12-Mi11Ultra-Mi11Pro_v5.6_A12-star-skkk_016c95cb.zip

Since Mi 11 Ultra is an A/B device I used the instructions by @gogocar62 and @katerpanne
I renamed downloaded TWRP to twrp.img, copied it to the main folder on the internal storage of the phone and into the Minimal ADB and Fastboot folder on the Notebook. Then booted the phone to Fastboot mode and booted temporarily to TWRP by using the code:
fastboot boot twrp.img

After TWRP was booted, I changed the language from Chinese to English, see pictures from @gogocar62
https://xiaomi.eu/community/attachments/bez-názvu-1-png.42793/

I flashed now TWRP permanently (from temporarily booted TWRP) by "Install" "Install img", choosed "twrp.img" from the internal storage and flashed it to: recovery_Ramdisk
After that I used the back navigation button to "Restart" "Restart to Recovery"

After TWRP was rebooted, I choosed 13.0.13.0 SKACNXM Rom zip file (which I had already stored on phones internal storage), selected it by "Install" and flashed it without any problems.
After flashing was successful finished I rebooted phone to systém.

TWRP remains after flashing the Rom and from now on next Update can downloaded by the Updater (which is called OTA Update here) and then flashing it by this TWRP.

There have been many new twrp releases from skkk for mi11u recently. This is very nice, but...
Is there a changelog somewhere? Does anyone know?
I love the updates, but also would like to know what has changed.
It seems the changelogs are all published on an app called coolapk which orginally was a third party android app store based in mainland China. https://www.coolapk.com/feed/36912330

Before the backup, the data/extm folder should be cleaned up the same applies to the data/fonts folder all folders and subfolders must not contain any files. The best and easiest way is to delete data/extm and data/fonts completely
Backup: data; boot and super after that everything you can see on the PC File Manager, must be copied from the mobile phone to the PC, preferably in an extra folder. Restore: The same system (Version e.g. 13.0.6.0.SKAEUXM) must be installed. Copy the contents of the phone back from the PC, then restore boot, data super
It seems every partition except cache(?) need to be backuped. Otherwise it will encounter the bootloop and in fact this is what I encountered. I only backup the data, boot and super partition in TWRP backup function.

I don't understand what's the meaning of 'everything you can see on the PC File Manager'. For example, I use an external SSD to store the backup data so there's no need to connect the phone to the PC. Further more you can choose which partition to be mounted so 'everything' seems meaningless too.

My ROM is xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK30Pro_22.7.19_v13-12 and my TWRP is twrp-3.6.2_12-v5.6_A12-lmi-skkk.img.

Hello,
My phone is a Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra
with Android 12 SKQ1,
MIUI xiaomi.eu V13.0.12,
TRWP 3.6.2_12-v6.3_A12-star-skkk
and I would like to
update to V13.0.13 already received OTA.

When I try to install the update in recovery, TRWP decrypts the memory :) and mounts the needed partitions, but the install fails with "assert failed: update_dynamic_partitions(package_extract_file("dynamic_partitions_op_list"))".

Is there something I can do to fix this error?

Download another twrp from skkk make sure it is for A12 try version 3.9 or 5.1 or 5.6 for your phone from here
https://dl.akr-developers.com/?dir=skkk/TWRP/A12 use it temporarily with the command; fastboot boot your-twrp.img
See Post #51 there was the same
Thanks BlackCanary, I followed your advices, but without success. However comforted by post 51, I searched again and found a system partition setting RW in the TRWP options, obviously needed, and so the update zip was installed without any problem!

Thanks I just decided to update my mi11 to latest stable update and got the same issue trying to install OTA with latest TWRP [BOOT]3.6.2_12-Mi11_v6.3_A12-venus-skkk_c5a45bf1 installed in recovery_Ramdisk , so at the time instead I just booted with twrp from PC doing the command and rom flashed fine but not from installed twrp

guess I would have had the same issue with next OTA update just enabled system partition setting RW in the TRWP so I should be fine when doing the next OTA when its released

Thanks for posting :)
