Abeg what's the difference between pie firmware and oreo firmware. Which one is better?

As the name suggests.

Oreo is better. But most roms are moving to pie

Looks legit.

Try using adb commands. Google it

Bros I don land into small problem
I was trying to flash android pie on redmi note 5 pro using twrp. I backed up my data with migrate which I have been using.
I flashed the ROM but forgot to flash the back up from migrate. Halfway setting up the phone I remembered, switched the phone and boot to twrp to flash the back up.
Now the problem is if I boot to twrp it normally ask for my password. But now if I put the password it shows failed despite the password being correct. It shows unable to mount the storage.. and the storage shows 0mb
And if I click cancel on the password page, it takes to me twrp options but if I try to install anything it shows my storage is empty.

The phone isn't longer rooted you know. Magisk isn't flashed.
I've flashed dummy.img months back when I was rooting my device. Do I need to flash it again.
I'm trying to flash it from adb but it stuck in "sending".

yes u most first flash the dummy.img before u flashing recovery via fastboot mode

Since ur phone isn't rooted, ur best bet is via fastboot mode

Just boot ur phone into fastboot mode and flash as shown in the pix below

Or

Of course, I am in fast boot. See the response I'm getting on the power shell. Could it be that the adb is outdated.

I already made the backup. How can I decrypt the storage?

I'm not chronic flasher. I even prefer mui that's why I need this orange fox because of ota
I downloaded higher version of minimal ADB and was able to flash dummy and orange fox successfully. But it's still showing me the device is encrypted and unable to mount storage on the orange fox.
I boot to recovery immediately after flashing it �
And it goes directly to fast boot if I put my password on the orange fox

In adb, type fastboot -w this should sort you out
