Using TWRP, I just installed new ROM (ResurrectionRemix-M-v5.7.4-20160922-libra) and OpenGApps (open_gapps-arm64-6.0-pico-20180830) on my Xiaomi Readmi 4c. Both of them were flashed successfully (or at least that's what the twrp said :D), there was no error or anything.

Then I went to "reboot system" and it returned back to the TWRP menu. I cannot boot into the newly flashed ROM.

Please help me solve this problem.

    Too few details, sorry. Are you sure you flashed the right ROM, and everything went OK? Did you wipe anything before? What first comes to mind is a failed flash, so recovery is the only working system remaining – which would explain why you always end up there. – Izzy Aug 30 '18 at 22:03
  • Yes the flash of the ROM and the open gapps were okay there was no error or anything. I'm very new to this so I don't know if I'm using the proper terminology to explain the issue. I used the ResurrectionRemix-M-v5.7.4-20160922-libra ROM and open_gapps-arm64-6.0-pico-20180830. Both of them were flashed successfully (or at least that's what the twrp said :D).

  • I'm open to recommendation on another ROM that might work on my phone. – Natasha T Aug 30 '18 at 22:14
  • forum.xda-developers.com/mi-4c. In this link under Android development, lineage os 14.1 nougat, lineage os 15.1 oreo available for the device. Flash any one rom and check whether it boots to system or not – Rahul Gopi Aug 31 '18 at 0:49
  • Sorry Natasha, but we don't do ROM or app recommendations here. I'd suggest to check your device's section on XDA (the link Rahul just gave) for a fitting ROM. Stick to the installation instructions, and it should work out. – Izzy Aug 31 '18 at 5:51

This only happens when the android phone doesn't have any ROM or the system itself so it redirects you to the recovery. One way for this is to wipe all out and re-flash everything OR wipe all out and re-flash a different ROM. And a question, Don't you have any backup of you're stock ROM before flashing a new one? It would be better to restore it.

  • This is not true to say this ONLY happens when there is no ROM or system to boot. I have a perfectly working system, which can boot, but only by going to bootloader, selecting "Start" from the menu and clicking the power button to select. It will boot android just fine and the system will function perfectly, as long as I do not shutdown. If I restart or boot from a shutdown, it will automatically boot into TWRP, at which time I have to go back into bootloader and select "Start" from the menu again in order to boot back into Android. Please don't make seemingly factual statements that are not f – Jonathan Bardi Mar 29 '19 at 20:48
