This guide will help you install TWRP and root MTK6797 and MTK6797T Redmi Pro, the first step is to install TWRP custom recovery on the MTK6797 and MTK6797T Redmi Pro. The process contains quite a few steps, but most of them take just a few seconds.

If it looks daunting, don’t worry, take each step one by one and you’ll come through with TWRP and a rooted Helio X20 MT6797 / Helio X25 MT6797T Redmi Pro within just a few minutes.

Prerequisites and notes

  • You must have an unlocked bootloader to follow this guide; flashing through fastboot requires an unlocked bootloader. If your Redmi Pro bootloader isn’t unlocked yet, go to the official Xiaomi unlock page to begin the process.
  • You need to backup anything you don’t want lost to your PC or a TF SD card; for TWRP to work, you may need to factory reset. You will lose all user data. Backup all important data BEFORE you flash the TWRP.

1. Download and extract the Redmi Pro root pack. It includes:

  • Auto installer for adb commands, adb drivers and fastboot commands– These are the tools that will allow your PC to communicate with your mobile.
  • Redmi Pro TWRP– The MTK6797 and MTK6797T Redmi Pro custom recovery used for rooting and flashing custom ROMs onto Redmi Pro.
  • Redmi Pro root SuperSU.zip– The SuperSU.zip used for rooting MediaTek MT6797 and MT6797T Redmi Pro through TWRP recovery.

2. Install the adb drivers and fastboot commands

  • Extract the above download.
  • Run “adb-setup.exe”.
  • Hit “Y” to all 3 questions.
  • The Google adb driver installer will then popup. Go ahead and allow and install.

3. Prepare your Xiaomi Redmi Pro

  • Settings >> About phone >> Tap “MIUI Version” seven times.
  • Hit the back button. You should then be at the main settings menu.
  • Go to “Additional settings” >> “Developer options” >> “USB Debugging”.
  • A warning will pop up. Go ahead and allow.
  • Plug your phone to PC via USB cable.
  • You should then see a pop up request on your Redmi Pro to give your PC USB debugging permissions. Go ahead and allow.

4. Copy the TWRP and open the command window

  • Open Windows Explorer and go to “c:/adb”.
  • Copy “twrp-redmipro.img” to “c:/adb”.
  • IN A BLANK SPACE (not on a filename etc…), hold SHIFT while RIGHT-CLICK
  • Select “Open command window here”. You should then see a small black window open.

5. Boot into bootloader and fastboot flash the TWRP

  • In the black command window type “adb reboot bootloader”. Hit Enter. Wait about 10 seconds and you should then see your Redmi Pro says “Fastboot” along with the Xiaomi Mascot.
  • In the black command window type “fastboot flash recovery twrp-redmipro.img”. Hit Enter.
  • You should then see that the file has flashed successfully (OKAY). It all takes just a second. (see pic and video)

6. Boot into TWRP

  • In the black command window, type “adb reboot”. Do not hit Enter yet.
  • Hold Volume Up on the Xiaomi Redmi Pro while hitting Enter on your PC.
  • Continue holding Volume Up for about 30 seconds until you see TWRP has booted.
  • BAM! You’re now booted into TWRP

7. Factory reset

  • Within TWRP, go to Mount >> Select Storage. If you see Internal Storage as zero megabytes, it means you must Factory Reset.
  • TWRP main menu >> Wipe >> Format Data >> Type “yes” >> Hit the check button on the keyboard.
  • Within TWRP, go to Mount >> Select Storage. You should now see Internal Storage as the correct MB.
  • TWRP will now be usable. You can Install a custom ROM, root, mount storage and backup.

8. Root your Xiaomi Redmi Pro

Now that your TWRP is functioning, you can easily root your Xiaomi Redmi Pro.

  • Connect Redmi Pro to your PC.
  • TWRP main menu >> Mount >> Mount USB storage. The Redmi Pro should then show up in Windows File Explorer under This PC / My Computer.
  • Copy the SuperSU.zip from the zip downloaded earlier to the root of your Redmi Pro. Leave the SuperSU zipped.
  • TWRP main menu >> Install
  • Assuming you have the SuperSU.zip in the base of the internal storage, you should see it at /sdcard. If it’s in another directory, then navigate to whichever directory you copied the SuperSU.zip to.
  • Select the SuperSU.zip
  • Swipe to confirm the flash

Done! Good job. You now have TWRP and a rooted MTK6797 Helio X20 / MTK6797T Helio X25 Redmi Pro.
