Redmi 8A is another budget phone rolled out by Redmi, an independent brand under Xiaomi umbrella. Xiaomi, on the other hand, puts the main focus on producing flagship phones. The release of Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro marks another milestone for the company.
Being a budget phone does not mean Redmi 8A hated by its users. In fact, the phone is one of the series to drive sales for the company.
Being what-so-called a “cheap” phone, Redmi 8A also receives some loves from third-party Android modifications community.
One of which is the coming of patched vbmeta!
The verified boot mechanism is not a new thing jumping into the Android ecosystem.
This recently becomes the culprit preventing TWRP to boot successfully.
The new mechanism will detect whether the recovery partition has been replaced and if it did, the system will replace it back with the stock recovery.
There comes the patched vbmeta in play.
