Are you in hurry to gain root access on your shiny new Redmi 7? Well, there is a good news for you. The unofficial build of TWRP recovery is available already.
Thanks to a Chinese developer wzsx150 from LR.Team. He is popular for the quick release of TWRP.
His TWRP is an uofficial build. Hence, you may expect some bugs. However, all basic functionalities work just fine.
Two things make this TWRP build different from its official one. First, it has only Chinese and English languages. Second, its default language is Chinese.
That should not bother you from using this custom recovery. We have wrapped up a nice simple guide on how to change its default language.
LR.Team TWRP Key Features:
- Automatic data partition decryption.
- Support full-page card swipe.
- Built-in advanced > root system / clear root function.
- Built-in advanced > remove dm checksum and cancel the forced encryption function.
- Root system, signature boot, remove dm check, cancel forced encryption, etc.

Download TWRP Flasher Toolkit
Flashing a custom recovery is not an easy thing for most people. It demands specific knowledge. You couldn’t spontaneously know the steps.
This toolkit helps you to cut the long way down.
Instead of typing the lengthily commands, you can simply type one key on your keyboard. This tool acts like a wizard guiding you to the right direction of flashing.
The initial version of this tool flashes either Wzsx150 TWRP or stock Mi recovery. You choose.
In the future we’ll update the tool to include official TWRP build.
added new instruction to avoid TWRP replacing by stock Mi recovery
Please note! Flashing a custom recovery needs unlocked bootloader. Follow our previous guide on how to unlock it.
Many recent devices will replace your custom recovery automatically during first boot. To prevent this, use the proper key combo to enter recovery.
After typing fastboot reboot, hold the key combo and boot to TWRP. Once TWRP is booted, TWRP will patch the stock ROM to prevent the stock ROM from replacing TWRP. If you don’t follow this step, you will have to repeat the install.
The key combo to boot into recovery mode on Redmi 7 is Volume Up and Power key. Press the keys simultaneously.
