Despite it took a while for the team behind TWRP to release the official build of the world’s greatest recovery, the wait is finally over. It has now landed on the Xiaomi Mi 9T, the device that has codename Davinci and is also known as Redmi K20.
Previously, we’ve seen several builds of unofficial TWRP already. All of them are good and mostly work as expected. However, some users feel their heart peaceful if they use the official version.
This not without a reason. Well, too many reasons and you might also pick your own reason. System stability and official support are a few of the reasons.
You might be wondering if the official one is better than the unofficial one? Not really! Instead, we see the unofficial builds get updated quicker.
Interestingly, the official version of TWRp for Mi 9T is maintained by Mauronofrio. The package maintainer is the one who released unofficial variants of TWRP for many Xiaomi phones.

Download The Flash-able Image File
Below you can download the official TWRP for Mi 9T from our mirror links. The file is hosted on our servers in Europe and the US (generated randomly).
This variant is also compatible for Redmi K20. Both devices are basically the same phone. Redmi K20, however, is more popular as the Chinese variant while Mi 9T is released globally.
How to Install?
Flashing this build is no different than the way of flashing its unofficial variants.
One main requirement is, of course, an unlocked bootloader. In a nutshell, the steps necessary to flash TWRP on Mi 9T are as following:
- Unlock the bootloader.
- Download the flash-able image file from the above link.
- Install ADB Fastboot Driver.
- Connect the phone to the computer using its cable.
- Issue these lines of command:
adb devices adb reboot bootloader fastboot devices fastboot flash recovery recovery.img fastboot reboot
The recent MIUI’s security mechanism prevents the stock recovery from being replaced. The workaround is simple. Once you typed the fastboot reboot command, press the Power button and the Volume Up button to boot into TWRP for the very first time.
A flashing maniac won’t be surprised by the steps. If you don’t, please check our previous guide here. The article shows more complete steps.
Just do not forget to replace the TWRP .img file used with the one from the above.
