    • Hi Akhil,
      First of all, Use the Recovery only for Vince, flashing other devices recovery can brick your device. twrp-3.3.1-0-rosy.img is for Redmi 5 and twrp-3.2.1-0-vince.img is for Redmi 5 Plus (Redmi Note 5 in India).
      Second, Make sure that your device is decrypted after you flash the recovery, you can decrypt by using “Format Data” option in the Wipe section.
