POCO X3, POCO F2 Pro, and Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G receive unofficial TWRP ports
Xiaomi devices are some of the best on the market for aftermarket development. Thanks to the availability of a dedicated kernel source code repository as well as an official bootloader unlock tool, users who wish to achieve more with their Mi, Redmi, or POCO branded smartphones can explore tailored modifications like custom ROMs and kernels. To get started with the process of flashing such a third party binary, custom recoveries are vital and TWRP is one of the most reputed names in this domain. Now, XDA Recognized Developer mauronofrio has brought unofficial TWRP support to the POCO X3, POCO F2 Pro, and the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G, opening doors to a range of opportunities for customizations.
The recently launched POCO X3 puts up an intriguing case with its Snapdragon 732G chipset, 5,160mAh battery (6,000mAh on the Indian variant) with 33W fast charging, up to 8GB RAM, quad rear cameras, and dual stereo speakers. As Xiaomi has yet to publish the kernel source for this phone, the unofficial build of TWRP (linked below) is compiled against a pre-built stock kernel. Despite a handful of bugs, the current TWRP build does present potential for the device to have a good community behind it in the future, using this custom recovery as the means to enable other modifications.
POCO F2 Pro
The Snapdragon 865-laden POCO F2 Pro is a rebranded version of the Redmi K30 Pro from China. But regardless of the great hardware, a lot of people do not seem to enjoy MIUI very much. If you’ve waited to get your hands dirty with some third party mods, you can get started by downloading TWRP.
Mi 10 Lite 5G
At present, there’s limited development related to the Mi 10 Lite 5G on our forums, but TWRP’s generosity might inspire other developers to bring support for the otherwise decent hardware which includes a Snapdragon 765G SoC and a 6.57-inch AMOLED display.
