I've downloaded the latest update with Android9 for my tab 705L to my PC today but I need help with patching the image file... What should I do further?
I've never used Magisk before and I don't know what to start with to create the patched img... And do I need to update my device before patching?
I was able to apply the new OTA update to my test P10 by reverting the boot image back to stock boot.img file found inside of 2nd OTA update. I am now stuck where you guys are. Per the official Magisk documentation, we need to patch the new stock boot.img which is created by the 3rd OTA update. However, it isn't clear to me how to get a copy of this new boot.img without root (or custom recovery).
This is a puzzle for sure. I'm still researching. Please let me know if you are able to make any progress. I'm sure that we can solve this as a community.
Currently I'm looking for a method of manually patching the boot.img file from the 2nd OTA update with the boot.img.p file found in the 3rd OTA update. I'm also looking into a no root method of extracting the boot.img file via adb (like with adb pull or dd). I'm no expert with firehose, but maybe there's a way to extract the file using the qcom download tool.
I'll post an update as soon as I find something... You guys do the same.
This might help - "How to patching an updated boot.img.p(atch) to a fastboot boot.img" a XDA post https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=1702233
Could help in creating a boot img "offline".
Getting a bit complicated for me.
