Is this possible using an SDCard? If yes, please share how.
I want to flash Android 9.0 boot.img modified to support Magisk.
Need the SafetyNet bypass module.

Will appreciate any inputs on how to install magisk on stock android 9.0 rom on a PX5 MTCE unit.

Thanks.

You mean that the boot.img can't be flashed alone?
Thanks.

Update.img is a full image. It can be used to flash a coreboard directly connected to a PC

Download the latest Firmware, open the update.zip and replace the boot.img and flash it via USB or SD-Card and Show If it booting

When it's finaly booted, Install Magisk Manager and show if you has Root Access!

1-Download adbkit
2-Connect device to wifi and PC to same wifi
3- copy your boot.img to internal memory
4- write the command
adb shell busybox dd if=/sdcard/boot.img of=/dev/block/by-name/boot

Thank you. I will try.

Edit: Tried it but ended bootloop. Maybe a problem on boot.img patching. Not supported by Magisk?

Someone who has properly patched Px5 android 9.0 boot.img?

I have tried this one but no success. Fails package validation. I guess it has to do with how the update.zip should be repacked. I just use 7zip in replacing the boot.img.

at this time magisk does not correctly do the patch in the rockchip boot.img so it's more accurate not to boot

Any possible solution? I think it's still possible. @Hal9k_ has made it in his custom ROM. Thanks.
