    Hello guys. I need some help. I have the xiaomi.eu flashable rom from here

    https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/flashtool-rom-xiaomi-eu.29354/

    I also have unlocked the bootloader and installed TWRP. The problem is that, when I enter to the recovery, I can't reboot or turn off the phone, it gets stuck when I try that. Every time I enter to the TWRP I need to reboot the phone pluging it to my PC and using "adb reboot" comand on the console.

    Does anybody know if there will be any problem if I try to install the last xiaomi.eu rom (the miui 8 one) via TWRP? Or better, does anybody know how to fix the problem with the TWRP?

    Thanks



    EDIT: I already solved this. I just installed another TWRP from here:

    This one is installed via TWRP. Once installed just reboot pressing the 3 physical buttons (Power, Vol+, and Vol-).

    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24459283995315411

    This one can be installed via flashtool:
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24459283995315396

    Both of them are the last version of TWRP at 2016/28/06 (Version 3.0.2).

    Thank you for your guide and all the work you do on making MIUI more awesome! Just a question though, I would like to apply your GPS config to the Redmi Note 3 PRO (Qualcomm) of my girlfriend, she currently runs the normal Xiaomi.EU rom. In the ZIP of your ROM from the sMiui kitchen I found your GPS settings but all the GPS.conf file's have exactly the same content. Is this maybe a bug in your kitchen? For example compare "stock" with "europe" and "southamerica", they are all the same.

    Maybe I am doing something wrong? :)

    The file: sMiUI_v8_kenzo_6.6.23_UNBLOM.zip

    Location: META-INF\com\google\android\sMiUI-kitchen\gps

    I would like to have the Europe and the south America GPS config's :)

    Pleae let me know how to "Start a windows terminal in the directory where your patched TWRP Image and Fastboot exe is located." What software to use?
    Unlock Bootloader

    You can easily unlock your Bootloader with the following procedure. You dont need to apply for any Unlock Code or other stuff.

    REQUIREMENTS:
    -- RedMi Note 3
    -- Developer ROM installed (stable will not work !!!)
    -- working MI-Account (verified and SIM CARD activated)
    -- Unlocking Software ( get it here )


    1. Start your Phone running a developer ROM
    2. Proceed through the Setup Wizard
    3. Connect your Phone to your verified Mi-Account (Settings -> Accounts)
    4. Login to i.mi.com and make sure that your new RedMi Note 3 is connected to that Account. (It appears that it only works when you connected a SIM-Card/Phone Number to your Account - Can be from another phone but your Account must be linked to a SIM-Card.)
    5. Reboot your Phone to Fastboot Mode (Power + volume down)
    6. Connect your Phone via USB to your Computer
    7. Start the MiFlashUnlock.exe (find the link at REQUIREMENTS)
    8. Click the left Button (chinese text)
    9. Login with your Mi-Account you used to link your new Phone
    10. Press the Button with chinese Text and watch the show
    11. Your Bootloader is unlocked when the progressbar shows 100%.
    12. Reboot your phone.

    Flash TWRP Recovery
    You will need the TWRP recovery to root your device. Further you will be able to install Custom ROMs (like sMiUI) on your device.
    I have linked an existing TWRP Image made by a guy called "cloud". Unfortunately he still had a bug in his version which cancelled ROM installations for the RedMi Note 3! I patched the TWRP Image and fixed this bug. So you will find a fully working TWRP Image in the Requirements.

    REQUIREMENTS:
    -- RedMi Note 3
    -- Unlocked Bootloader (see above)
    -- TWRP Image File ( DOWNLOAD )
    -- Fastboot Binaries (you can find a fastboot.exe in the Unlocking Software ZIP)


    1. Boot your Phone to Fastboot Mode (Power + volume down)
    2. Connect your Phone via USB to your Computer
    3. Start a windows terminal in the directory where your patched TWRP Image and Fastboot exe is located.
    4. type "fastboot flash recovery TWRP_redminote3_patchedBySebsch1991.img"
    5. Wait for the process to finish
    6. type "fastboot reboot"
    7. After your system comes up you can reboot to Recovery mode (Power + volume up)
    8. Enjoy your fully working TWRP Recovery

    Enable ROOT Access

    REQUIREMENTS:
    -- RedMi Note 3
    -- SuperSU Zip-File ( DOWNLOAD )


    1. Download the SuperSU Zip-File and copy it on your Phone
    2. Boot your Phone to Recovery Mode (Power + volume up)
    3. Chose "INSTALL"
    4. Chose the downloaded SuperSU Zip-File
    5. Wait for installation process to finish
    6. Reboot your Device
    7. Enjoy rooted RedMi Note 3!
    Check out www.smiui.net for a pre-rooted ROM with many other Features! (redmi note 3 version coming soon)[/QUOTE]

    This is the only .IMG that allows me to install TWRP. The many others I have tried never work.

    However, I am told I need a newer version of TWRP to install the EU ROM. Does anyone know any other .IMGs I may try or have other ideas?

    Hello,
    I've followed the tutorial.
    I've successfully unlocked my device.
    I've flashed TWRP also successfully.
    But when I turn on the device with the power button + VolUP I get the black screen with the device and a white cable plugged to it(can't post the link cause i'm new here).

    What should I do? I would like to install SuperSU and also the latest eu 7.5 stable rom afterwards.
    I'm currently with the latest global developer rom : 6.8.4 (MIUI8).

    Thanks for your help.

    You must to install TWRP again. After this install do not reboot the phone normally! First boot must be with Power=VolUp.

    I solve the problem with the other TWRP.
    It's an older version, but it works correctly.

    Hi, just try a reboot of your PC. Maybe your Phone too if this happens.

    Hello. My Redmi Note 3 MTK is already granted access to unlock. Can I then skip step 1 in Guide and go directly to Flash TWRP Recovery? I currently don't have Developer ROM, but MIUI 8 6.8.18| Beta which has a lot of chinese in it, so I am looking for a ROM where I can use normal keyboard etc.

    Granted access to unlock does not mean you have unlocked bootloader... You must do the procedure to unlock bootloader, and after you Can flash twrp. Your rom 6.8.18 Is china developer, so you can unlock with it without problems,

    Yes, I meant, I have successfully unlocked my device with China Developer. I am now looking to install EU ROM from this site, but I do not understand the instructions for flashing TWRP recovery.
    I put the TWRP image in the directory of the MiFlash Unlock program where the fastboot.exe is located as that is the only way I can understand the instructions, but when running a terminal command in that directory I get the error message "cannot open 'TWRP_redminote3_patchedBySebsch1991.img'.

    I have to say for an ultimate giude is this really not in depth for someone that is not very well versed in computers and phones.
