Pitch Black Recovery for Redmi 7, Better Than TWRP

Pitch Black Recovery for Redmi 7, Better Than TWRP 1

Xiaomi Redmi 7 is the next iteration of the company’s expected-to-be the best selling budget phone. There is a certain segment of the target market and Xiaomi’s popular target is the entry-level market.

This strategy is well-known for Xiaomi. Up until recently, Xiaomi splits its brand resulting Xiaomi Mi for high-end devices and Redmi for the budget segment.

This marketing strategy seems successful for the company. Xiaomi always manages to sell millions of devices soon after its release date.

Redmi 7 is one of the company’s devices being popular getting sale hits.

The device has codename Onclite. Redmi 7 sports Qualcomm SDM632 Snapdragon 632 chipset incorporating Octa-core 4x 1.8GHz Kryo 250 Gold and 4x 1.8GHz Kryo 250 Silver CPUs and Adreno 506 GPU.

Xiaomi MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie also comes as its default operating system.

Comparing these specifications to its price tag makes this device really worth to buy.

Furthermore, Xiaomi is always popular for its developer-friendly system. Unlike Huawei, Xiaomi always allows its users to unlock the bootloader of any Xiaomi phones they bought.

Once unlocked, users can then install custom recoveries, ROMs, kernels, and third-party tweaks. Thus they can also root their phones easily.

One of the world’s best custom recoveries is TWRP. It has been used by millions of devices. It is the best replacement for the stock Mi recovery.

Its awesomeness in terms of functionality makes it receives many forks. One of the best TWRP forks is Pitch Black Recovery Project (PBRP).

Pitch Black TWRP is the forked version that sports several additional features not available within the official one.

Key Features

One of its best features is the ability to survive the MIUI OTA update mechanism. Normally, replacing stock Mi recovery with a custom one will remove the OTA update functionality. PBRP will simply retain that function.

Some other cool features include the built-in Magisk root and DM-Verity Disabler tweak. You no longer need to manually download the world’s most popular Android root package.

The existence of AromaFM as its default file manager adds another layer of awesomeness within this custom recovery. Aroma File Manager offers an easy-to-use interface to browse all files and folders in a system.

Some other key features are:

  • Supports Treble and non-Treble ROMs
  • Full dark theme with changeable accents
  • Reorganized menus
