Do you need to replace that stock MIUI Recovery with a custom one? Well, the first option you have is the official build of TWRP. It is world’s best custom recovery available.
Created by Team Win Recovery developers team, TWRP boasts features not available in the stock recovery. It allows you to install custom binaries such as Magisk, tweaks/mods, and custom Android ROM.
Furthermore, you can easily create a full Nandroid backup and restore it in the future when needed.
The best thing about TWRP is its touchscreen feature. Even the stock MIUI recovery still uses the combination of Volume and Power buttons to navigate its users. With TWRP, you can easily touch here and there, this option and that one, and so on.
