Thanks, did you transfer the file after full format in TWRP, it did you download it on the phone and not do a full format and just flash it and wipe after?
Full format only if you're actually on stock rom or weekly rom....
If you're on previous stable xiaomi.eu, just transfert the file on your phone and flash it via TWRP.

I currently trying to flash and I keep getting failure on the flash. Booted TWRP, formattted, pushed file.

Then
assert failed: update dynamic partitions
Updater process ended with ERROR:1

Then some more lines

Can help? Am I missing a setting in TWRP or something? I'm following all the instructions to the letter otherwise.

I have the exact same problems of the previous screenshots in this thread showing error 1 despite using all the latest files. Do I need to install the fastboot version first and then the TWRP version? Really stuck here and need the phone for tomorrow so any help or guidance greatly appreciated!!

just one question, which TWRP is the best or can be recommended


as there are three, but the last one, on 12 dec hasn't even have a mirror.
I used the fork by jjhitel twrp-3.5.2_11-20211007-odin-jjhitel.img. Installed v12.5.12 stable. Works like a charm.

But I checked just now that there is already a (official???) released by TeamWin thru their website TWRP for Xiaomi Mi Mix 4

Totally worth it a few days later. Viper4android doesn't work but JamesDSP is nearly as good.

Magisk stays on it and modules working fine. I reboot my phone every night, zero issues.

Phone finally feels like my own. AdAway does that to a person :)

Also the brightness is fixed, I moved this onto storage and installed with Magisk

Has anyone has a problem with telegram? I can't send pictures there. I read to format data, but I can't install TWRP, getting an error message that there's no such partition. (using stable XIaomi EU ROM

If using android 11, you must boot (not flash) twrp via fastboot and install it within recovery itself, flashing img won't work. If you're on A12, no point using twrp that can't even decrypt data.

Thanks, I figured it out. I only booted twrp. Format data, reboot TWRP, format one more time data and then flashed latest stable Xiaomi EU without a format data. Cheers!

you can use telegram x… user reported it is working

Short explanation:

Devices with A/B partition scheme don't have a recovery partition so you cant "flash recovery twrp.img"
You can only boot in recovery mode with "fastboot boot twrp.img"

To permanently flash recovery to A/B devices, you need to unpack both boot.img (A/B) from device
Replace the ramdisk with the one extracted from twrp.img and repack then flash boot.imgs back to device ...

Do this to start twrp
# fastboot boot twrp.img

Dont do this to start twrp on A/B devices
# fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
