TWRP v3.3.x for Redmi Note 8 (Global & China)

TWRP v3.3.x for Redmi Note 8 (Global & China) 1

Redmi Note 8 (codename Ginkgo) has been around for a while. The next successor of the Redmi Note family is coming with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC. The most highlighted key feature of Redmi Note 8 is its quad-camera setup sitting in the rear area. The massive 48MP AI camera exists among them.

Just like any other Xiaomi phones, Ginkgo is also developer-friendly. Its bootloader is unlockable allowing wide arrays of possibilities for modifications.

One of the must-have tools for that purpose is a custom recovery. TWRP is the perfect “man for the job”. Being very popular thanks to its compatibility for many devices, TWRP is a custom recovery that supports touchscreen display. Hence, the use of the Power and Volume button combination is no longer needed.

The importance of TWRP as a custom recovery is almost indispensable. You can flash almost any kind of third-part packages, binaries, backups, apps, and so on.

On top of that, you can gain root easily by flashing Magisk through the TWRP recovery.

The main team of TWRP has not released the official TWRP yet for Redmi Note 8. Luckily, there always some generous developers have managed to release the unofficial TWRP. One of them is AZSX150 by LR.Team.

However, since WZSX150 is a nickname of a Chinese MIUI user, his TWRP releases are available only in two languages which are Chinese and English. There are no other international local languages.
