What's the latest TWRP version for the Mi 9T and does anyone know whether this works with the latest stable xiaomi.eu ROM 10.3.14?

I'm currently using the LR.Team version and I'm on Xiaomi.eu 10.3.12 but scared to update due to the amount of people on here being stuck in fastboot..


----------------

Decided to create this thread to try and get some clarity about what versions work with what ROM etc.
See the Google Drive folder below for all download links.

I'll try to keep the OP and Google Drive archive updated with your replies and/or new information.

Installation instructions for the Russian 4PDA version by Skiamakhia

Recent post updates:
2019-08-16 Crude & quick update.
Added Skiamakhia's information.
To save some time and since it looks like we've found some stable versions I won't be linking to every source anymore. Unless it's outside of this thread, probably. I will keep updating the Excel sheet screenshot.
Prettified - only using 9.X version number for dev builds now.
Rearranged and improved excel sheet based on fmcheeta's suggestions
Added confirmation for 10.3.14 stable
2019-08-13
Aded Schnedi's information about the stock ROM compatibility
Added excel table overview because this **** is getting out of hand
Added kezzuki's information
2019-08-12
Added fmcheetah's information.
Added new Greek version "twrp_davinci_3.3.1_12-08-19_blue_Ss_new.img" to Google Drive archive.
Added Immortal68's information.
2019-08-10
Added new Greek version, added Russian version install instructions

Detailed (possibly outdated) information below:

These are sorted from most likely to work, to least likely to work.

Note: (Sometimes?) needs extra misc.bin file to be flashed which causes the Mi 9T to think it's a K20. Chinese language is selected by default but you can change it to English. Instructions: https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/twrp-not-flashing-booting-in-9t-eu.51183/#post-493030

Thanks! I'll add it to the OP & Google Drive. Have you got an original source for that version?
This seems to be the Greek 2019-08-05 version which can't create backups. Check the Greek website or my Google Drive, there's a newer version!

Are you using this version of TWRP and paired with what version of the .eu ROM?

OP updated.
Thanks for your taking care. TWRP is always a bothering point.
I've received my new phone ( as MI8SE replacement) and it has Stable 10.3.12.0 PFJEUXM version update.
Now I have to wait 168 h for boot unlock.
it may be a difference within running rom, we shall mention it when commenting. EU/CN or MI Global.

Note:
FP very fuzzy and slow! Themes are missing when in Europe region, working with other settings.
Very happy having LTE B20 and 28 now.
One week to test this rom.

Flashing the misc.bin wasn't needed for me when flashing the LR team twrp. So its not (Sometimes?) but Sometimes.

Great idea, a thread to organise TWRP versions and working status!

The Greek TWRP version 3.3.1_12-08 works with Xiaomi.eu stable 10.3.14.
I can confirm the most used functions work perfectly, including:
- Brightness adjustment and vibration
- USB OTG
- Storage decryption (/sdcard) now works in the 12-08 version with pattern entry

I have not tested back-up yet.

That's great to know. If you could test backup and restore functionality that'd be grand!

I'm on eu dev 9.8.1 with TWRP GR 3.3.1_23-07-19. Can I flash the new TWRP through TWRP or must it be flashed through fastboot?
The one I'm using now didn't boot with the command "fastboot boot twrp.img", I needed to turn off my Mi 9T and to restart TWRP with the buttons power and volume+.
With latest greek release 3.3.1_12-08 data backup & restore is working ok as far as I understood from @fmcheetah's post on xda:
