With the newly launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 in India and Redmi Note 5 Pro goes on sale in the corporate home area of China in just a matter of days, there will be more devices out there that Android fans will look into installing custom recovery images on.
Note 5 Redmi already has a TWRP version for its own calls, but that's not enough for the newer 5 Notes. Now, unofficial version of TWRP has been released for newer devices, and can be downloaded now.
While building this is not an official one, it does happen through good people at XDA-Developers. In particular, senior members of XDA Shahan_mik3 and vasishath, so there has to be little confidence in its ability to work as advertised.
The couple said that this release mostly works without major problems to worry about, but as usual your mileage may vary. However, with threads continuing in the XDA forum there is always a place to post if you run into problems.
The TWRP custom recovery image, or Team Win Recovery Project, is a recovery image that provides a touch-enabled interface that lets users install and restore firmware, making it a great addition to anyone who often tinkers with their devices more often than most.
As always though people, no matter how stable the unofficial TWRP release is, there is always the potential for the wrong things. Make sure everything is fully backed up before you start any path that involves installing a firmware or custom recovery image.
