Installing TWRP on the phone requires an unlock bootloader. So, I have divided this whole guide into two parts as below:

  1. Bootloader Unlock
  2. Flashing the TWRP

Unlocking the Bootloader

The phone must have an unlocked bootloader in the first place to be able to install or replace the stock recovery with TWRP recovery on Redmi 10X.
Follow the below instructions to unlock the bootloader.

  • Enable developer options
  • Enable OEM unlock and USB debugging inside Developer Options
  • Then go to Mi Unlock Status (under Developer Options) and click on the Add account and device.
    Add your Redmi 10X to the Mi account registered on your phone.
  • Once done, reboot the phone into fastboot and unlock the phone with MiFlash Unlock Tool

Flash the TWRP on Redmi 10X

  1. Download and extract the Redmi 10X TWRP zip file. There you will get recovery.img and misc.bin file.
  2. Download and Install the ADB and Fastboot utilities.
  3. Then connect the phone to the PC using a USB cable.
    – On your phone, if you see such as “Allow USB debugging” then just tap on OK to proceed.
  4. On the computer, open a command prompt (on Windows) or terminal (on Linux or macOS) window, and execute the below command to restart your phone into fastboot mode or bootloader mode:
    adb reboot bootloader

    – You can also enter into fastboot or bootloader mode by turning off the phone and then pressing the Power button + Volume Down button.
  5. Extract the downloaded zip file. Then execute the EN_Recovery-twrp-oneclick-EN.bat file to flash the TWRP or follow the next instruction to flash it manually.
  6. As this is an A-only device, the TWRP needs to be flashed on the recovery partition. So, execute the below commands to flash the twrp and the misc.bin file:
    fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.4.x-xx.img
    fastboot flash misc misc.bin

    While executing this command make sure to replace the twrp-3.4.x-xx.img with the actual filename of the TWRP.
  7. Wait for the fastboot command to finish installing the TWRP on Redmi 10X.
