It’s been more than a week since the last update and I already feel like I’m missing quite a lot of information. There are so much more topics and ideas which I want to write about, but the last week or two I’ve been really busy on my daily job. It’s night here already and I want to begin this month with the list of the different Android Custom ROMs for Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A.

Before you’ll start choosing a new ROM for your phone, please pay attention that you must first unlock the bootloader and then flash TWRP Custom Recovery (here’s the link for TWRP flashing tutorial).

Download TWRP Custom Recovery for Redmi Note 5A

Below you can download the latest TWRP 3.2.1-0 for Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A (2/16) ugglite device which was released on 2018.01.10.

Before flashing TWRP Custom Recovery you must first unlock the bootloader. You must also have ADB drivers installed on your PC.

After installing the TWRP for the first time go to “Additional / Tools” > “Boot” > “Disable Verify”. By doing this you’ll disable the boot partition encryption, otherwise official MIUI ROM won’t start.
