at first many thanks for your great instructions!
I tried to install TWRP on my Redmi 6A, but unfortunately it does not work.It looks as if the TWRP image would be written without error, but <fastboot reboot recovery> is not recognized, <adb reboot recovery> does not recognize the device, so I can’t boot to TWRP. I tried several other attempts, but it always ends in the stock mode.
I would be very thankful for help.

Okay, I have verified this on my Poco F1 (I don’t have Redmi 6A).
Fastboot does not have a reboot to recovery command available.
You have to manually reboot the phone to recovery from fastboot.
Or alternatively you can reboot from fastboot and then press the Volume up while the phone is booting to enter into recovery mode.
I will update the guide accordingly.

I follow this tutorial, but if i flash the no_verity file my device stops recognising the SIM card…
Any way i can get TWRP and/or root, without flashing the no_verity fil?
