I am planning to install Lineage OS 13 on my MiPad (1st gen) running MIUI7.
I was told that the first thing i need to do for this is install a custom recovery like TWRP & resize the partition as per this guide.
I have a few questions
1) Do I first need to root my MiPad before installing TWRP? If so, how do I do that?
2) I found that I could install TWRP from the play store - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.twrp.twrpapp (This is version 1.15)
How the guide says I should download TWRP_multirom-v2.8.4-mocha.zip Recovery. It doesn't mention where from but the version seems to 2.8.4
Why does the playstore contain such an old version? And where do I get TWRP_multirom-v2.8.4-mocha.zip from?
The guide also says Change the Mi Recovery to either CWM or TWRP Recovery (I used TWRP)
What does this mean & how do I do this?
