This section requires different steps. First, we must enable USB debugging on our phone. We can do it from Settings> System> About the phone and then click on the build number about six or seven times, approximately. Then we go back to Advanced Settings> Developer Options and activate the USB Debugging option.
Once this step is done, we have to download the TWRP Recovery File on the computer and rename it as twrp.img. We locate it on the computer and press the Shift key on the keyboard at the same time that we right click to open the Windows command window. We connect the phone to the computer and type “adb devices” in the command window.
When doing this, we should be able to see our device (Random String). If it does not appear, we have not installed the drivers correctly; so you should retry it. Once we see the device, we must type ” fastboot reboot bootloader ” to enter the fastboot mode. And to install TWRP Recovery, you have to type ” fastboot flash twrp.img “. Then the flashing process will begin and we’ll have to wait until it’s over. When it does, we type ” fastboot reboot ” to restart the phone.
That is all! With this, we will have installed TWRP Recovery on the Xiaomi Mi 9 successfully. Finally, we have to see how to access the root of the phone.

Then we return to the Home screen and click on reboot, Reboot System, to restart the system. And with this, we would have finished! Always remember to back up your files before trying to follow these steps, in case there is an error.
