The phone comes with MIUI 10 operating system out of the box which is based on the Android Pie.Mi Note 8 Pro is also eligible for MIUI 11 update.Xiaomi's home-grown MIUI is greatly customizable & it's one of the top operating systems for android smartphones…
But, if you are an enthusiastic end-user and want to do more with your phone, you should try the TWRP recovery atleast once.TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) allows you to install custom ROMs, custom kernels, and modifications which can’t be performed in the stock MIUI recovery which comes pre-installed on the phone.
Installing a TWRP recovery on just about any Android smartphone is an easy task provided, if you follow the instructions properly &carefully.So, to help you with this, I am writing this article to guide you step-by-step on how to install the TWRP custom recovery on your Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Before you get started with the procedure, Please kindly take note of the pre-requisites which are listed below.
⦁ Unlocked Bootloader
⦁ An USB Cable

Note: It’s not compulsory but I would suggest you to take a backup of the data which are stored on your phone if in case anything goes wrong.
