Hi, I'm looking for a custom recovery for Mi Max Pro 3/64 Snapdragon 652 (helium). I've already done some research and there is only Mi Max Snapdragon 650 (hydrogen) version.
Do you know where I can look for it?

Just to say: Mi Max has Snapdragon 650/652* :)
For TWRP you must wait I think. You can try install hydrogen version, I don't think will be a big difference or wait.

1. Unlock your device
See xiaomitips.com tutorial for MI 5, same method for MI max. Sorry, can't post link

2. Flash twrp via fastboot
See tuto on xiaomitips.com to

3. To boot on twrp: vol up + power

4. If you twrp ask for a code (encrypt device),
-Download supersu
-Download a twrp rom

go back in fastboot mode
Fastboot format system
Fastboot format userdata

Reboot on twrp
Flash the rom
Flash supersu

Wipe cache and dalvik
Reboot (be patient for first boot +/- 10mn)

My bootloader is unlocked. this error in twrp is "This package is for Helium device " this is a hydrogen" "Error installaing zip file */sdcard/xiaomi.eu_multi_MIMAXPRO_6.7.28...."

You just answered to your own question: your device, as you stated before, is a 3/64/Snap650 hydrogen, therefore it's NOT a helium (also called Mi Max Pro), those are just the 3/64 and 4/128 with Snap652.
The package you need is the one with MIMAX in the link, not MIMAXPRO.
;)
Let me know how it goes :)

P. S. Sorry for not posting the link directly, but as I have less than 10 posts the forum doesn't allow me to do so.

For mi max pro (helium) don't flash Xiaomi eu 6.7.28, I also have same problem.
You could try xiaomi.eu_multi_MIMAXPro_6.7.21 or 6.7.14, 6.7.7 all work properly and wait next update if Xiaomi eu fix this.

i understand but my mi max it's 64Gb with snapdragon 652, so twrp hydrogen or helium and ROM hydrogen or helium ?
For now there is no twrp for helium device so you can use the one for hydrogen (some of users say that it works just fine) but rom needs to be for the MI max pro (helium) version only.

The question is: after you flash the hydrogen twrp on the pro device isn't that the reason why it doesn't let you flash the helium weekly rom (it says your device need hydrogen). This is what happened to me. And when I flashed the hydrogen weekly rom (the last one) it bricked the device! I managed to get it alive again but I am confused what is the right rom to flash on it in the future.

I have just used TWRP 3.0.2-2 by ManhIT for hydrogen and modified by me to report as device -> helium.

6.7.28 for MiMaxPro installed fine once I have unmounted /system from the TWRP settings.
