Redmi Note 8 Pro Gets Unofficial Orange Fox Recovery (Download) 1

Download Orange Fox TWRP for Redmi Note 8 Pro codename Begonia from the direct link below. This build is not the official one but it supports Project Treble already as well as official MIUI OTA update mechanism.

One of the best custom recoveries as a TWRP alternative is Orangefox. The project becomes popular as it comes with additional key features not available within the official TWRP build. On top of that, the UI design and style are sleeker.

Redmi Note 8 Pro (Begonia) is another successor of the Redmi Note series and is the top variant currently. The Mediatek Helio G90T (12nm) chipset planted under the hood is somewhat a controversial move by the company. Nevertheless, it is a great smartphone capable of delivering gaming performance at a fraction of the flagship’s price.
