What is CFW? ( How to Install CFW Recovery on Redmi Note 8 Pro )

CFW is a combination of multiple Xiaomi firmware packages. CFW enables you to use the new builds without worrying about bricks while running newer proprietary vendor software. These builds are unified for all variants of the Redmi Note 8 Pro and have pretty much all issues fixed at this point. The CFW contains firmware files from the latest A9 and latest A10 firmware image. Along with this, the CFW also installs the factory preloader and bootloader (LK) to make sure you’re safe when modifying your device. Source – XDA Forums.
