Android Enthusiasts love unlocking the bootloader, installing custom recovery, and flashing custom ROMs. If you are one of them, you want to root and install TWRP recovery on your Poco X3 NFC. We will guide you through the first step to the last in this article.

About TWRP Recovery

TWRP is the short form of the Team Win Recovery Project, featuring the material design and a beautiful UI. Follow the tutorial below to install the latest TWRP for Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC. The unofficial version of TWRP has been released, and you can download it from the download section of this article. We suggest you confirm your device model by visiting your smartphone’s Settings>About area. Remember, this guide is merely for rooting and unlocking the bootloader on Poco X3 NFC and does not work on any other device.

Poco X3 NFC is packed with some very advanced and powerful hardware. The native operating system MIUI on Xiaomi devices tends to slow down the devices, and the hardware’s full potential is not utilized. With the help of TWRP custom recovery, you can install custom ROMs like AOSP, Pixel Experience, Havoc-OS, Evolution-X, Resurrection Remix, and LineageOS on Poco X3 NFC. TWRP also helps you flash custom kernels, Xposed framework modules, Magisk modules, etc.

Advantages of TWRP Recovery

TWRP is an open-source project developed with the community’s help. Once you flash TWRP, you open the doors to flash custom ROMs, mods, kernels, patches, etc. You can also take a complete backup of your current operating system and save it to an external device. With the help of a custom recovery, you may also wipe the cache, data, Dalvik cache, and system and even mount your device’s partition.

For installing the TWRP, your POCO X3 NFC phone must have an Unlocked bootloader. That means you must first unlock the bootloader to root your device and do any customization.
