Throughout this tutorial, we will walk you through installing the TWRP Recovery onto your Poco F5 or Redmi Note 12 Turbo. It is not a closely guarded secret that the products manufactured by Xiaomi, notably the Poco series, are among the most active participants in the development of custom software.

However, the rapidity with which things are progressing truly astounds us. Even though the device has only been available to the public for a short period, we have already developed an operational custom recovery.

As a consequence of this, you will be able to simply create a backup of all of the partitions on your device, delete the data from specific sections, and flash individualized firmware and modules with just a few clicks of your mouse.
