Is it possible to install the TWRP through fastboot, because after installing the 5.2.27, the installation didn't work and now the device doesn't load and I've lost the TWRP that I had and now I cant flash the room again because it isn't name as update.zip? If it is possible, would somebody help me solve it.

How to install/use any TWRP recovery (fastboot mode)
  1. Your phone need to be recognized by your pc, if it's not recognized please install Xiaomi USB drivers (included in Mi PC Suite http://pcsuite.mi.com)
  2. Download Android ADB Fastboot (from here for example http://rubenalamina.mx/download/525/) and install it.
  3. Rename your *.img file in recovery.img and move it to ADB folder (usually in C: drive)
  4. Boot your phone into fastboot mode by pressing volume down key and pressing power key simultaneously and subsequently releasing power key after some seconds.
  5. Connect your device to your PC with the USB cable.
  6. Search for "cmd" in Windows search bar and right click on it => "Run as administrator".
  7. Type in the command prompt cd C:\ADB to move to ADB folder (if installed in a different path please replace "C:\ADB" with your installation path, e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\ADB")
  8. Type fastboot device just to be sure your device is correctly recognized.
  9. Type fastboot flash recovery recovery.img to flash the recovery (Warning: this is permanent and will replace your Mi Recovery and you'll lose your warranty) or type fastboot boot recovery.img if you want to use the recovery without flashing it.
  10. Type fastboot reboot in order to reboot your device once the flash is completed.
