As one of world’s best custom recovery, TWRP gets its own die-hard fans. Many Android users around the world simply become its loyal fans.
Developed by Team Win Developers Team, TWRP is a custom recovery built with ease of use in mind. As far as we can remember, TWRP is the first recovery that supports touchscreen. Hence, we didn’t become addicted with Power and Volume buttons combination.
On top of that, TWRP is also very easy to customize. Its interface is heavily theme-able. Thanks to its fully XML driven GUI.
TWRP has been empowering thousands of Android devices around the globe. The recovery is also available and compatible with many types, variants, and brands of devices.
Xiaomi Mi 8 is one of them. The device is a flagship device of Xiaomi. There is its iteration already which is Mi 9.
Nevertheless, it’s still a beast. The Mi 8 (codename Dipper) boasts Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 (10 nm) SoC with Octa-core (4×2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 385 Silver) CPUs and Adreno 630 GPU.
As with many other Xiaomi phones, the Mi 8 is also quite popular and is developer friendly. There have been a number of customization and modification made available for the Mi 8.
TWRP recovery acts as the most important key to open possibilities employing those modification and customization.
