So far Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) is the most suitable custom ROM for many variants of Xiaomi phones, including Redmi Note 4x. The phone that has codename “Mido” is powered with 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB RAM, 4100 mAh battery, 32GB internal flash storage, and of course 5.50 inch crystal clear display. Some of Mi fans are not satisfied with the original Redmi Note 4 that is powered with MediaTek Deca-core processor in terms of power consumption. Therefore, the 4X edition is probably the answer of that dissatisfaction.
Getting back to the topic, TWRP is type-defendant recovery which means you cannot simply use any TWRP variant except the one mentioned to be compatible with your phone.
