Neither Mix1 nor Mix2s have thus far received the blessings of an official TWRP that works.

Are they not loved enough by the TWRP nerds at XDA?

My Mi Note 2 actually got an official TWRP for the first time about 1 1/2 years after release, for no particular reason that I know of.
It was never popular at XDA I believe.

This is a serious problem that I see no easy solution to, and is one reason among several why I am not so enthused about getting a Mix 2s.
It's really not that big a deal. The one we have works fine, it just won't back up your data partition, and there are plenty of alternatives for that.

You need it for a lot of other things too, like installing things.

And there is no good alternative to a TWRP backup.

Hmmm tricky twrp... it continues asking for decription password whenever I open it to flash something, even though I formatted data multiple times. Should I change format to ext4?

edit additional details:

Received phone last week and unlocked BL this weekend. after unlock flashed latest EU stable, no magisk or anything else yet since the decription password worries me. Everytime I boot into TWRP it is decrypting data which keeps me away from flashing anything else now. Even more worried about OTA's.

edit 2:

I found the remove DM verity and remove force encrypt bit in this TWRP.... brrrr. Should I do both ??

Never seen this in TWRP or any other custom Recovery (and I have been around for a while fooling with phones and flashing). Flashing Lazyflasher also not working.

How did you flash the dm verity? because when I do that it always give me ERROR 1 for the ramdisk. can you gimme some instructions or link where can I download it? Im using dm-verity version 6.0 but no luck on getting that one flashed.

Maybe somebody has ideas how backup /data in this TWRP on xiaomi.eu. I would like to try another ROMs, but I really don't want to restore all apps with mi-backup or titanium...

I didn't... it was not working, there is however an option in the TWRP build we are using that looks like it would do the trick. I don't have the guts to try it with this TWRP :-D

Nope, only a swipe when start like in "normal" twrp, then is the same s**t...no backup, don't decrypt automatically...n i noticed also that start 2/3 times on mi screen before to start the rom...i was scared went in bootloop first time...but do it everytime

Do i need to have a specific stock rom pre-installed?
don't get twrp running properly (adb says installation was fine, but when rebooting the Mi-Recovery 3.0 is still active..)
adb v1.4
twrp from here
device is unlocked
current rom: MIUI 10.2.2.0 (PEECNXM)
8/128gb

Appreciate any help!
