Hi!!!

Thanks for the tutorial. I managed to root my Ulefone Armor 6.
Just one thing, maybe it will be nice to add in the tutorial (suggestion): Magisk generates another boot.img file, called magisk_patched. That is the one to be used on step 17 (rename it before).

One question. If I do a factory reset, will the phone remain rooted? Can't remember for the life of me from past roots I've done.

Oh most definitely. I am actually going to add more detail to this tutorial once I have the free time to do so. This tutorial was mainly supposed to be like a rough idea on how to do it. However yes, I did a factory reset not to long ago and root was maintained.

Update:
Added more information and cleaned the thread up.

Well, IDK if that's a common understanding or even if it's going to happen to everybody but.. Ulefone released an software update that undid the root and reinstalled every single native app that I had uninstalled. I tried rooting again, buuut they did not put the new rom in their website yet, so my phone got stuck in boot XD. So I reinstalled the ROM available using SP Flash Tool (thank god that worked, lost some information but that's fine).

I'm not sure if I'm going to root it again when they release the ROM in the website.. I wanted root so I could make Cerberus an native app, but even though I can do it, if the phone is reset Cerberus loses my account information, so it is no use to me.

English is not my native language, but I guess that's pretty understandable
@edit: They did not release the new rom in the official website.. I did not look into the Mega or Drive link actually.

Yeah, I think their new rom has a few security updates as well as other updates.

I haven't updated as of yet, because I fear I will lose root. However if I ever do, I'll update everyone if successful.

I understand you very well too.

Hello it's been a while.
I have updated to the latest version by Ulefone for our Armor 6's.
Version: 2019.06.05.
I was able to root it again, using the same method in this thread.
As for the native apps, I haven't tried to remove them, however I am sure it is possible to.

HELP!
Guys, I need some help here. For some reason I'm not able to find the file in the downloads folder. When i go to Magisk, the file is there, however I cannot find it with any file explorer or through the PC. Any help here??

Disclaimer:
I am not responsible if you damage, brick, or willingly alter your phone in any way shape or form blah blah blah, you get the point.


Prerequisites:
Make sure you have drivers installed, here.


Rooting process:

1. Obtain a local copy of the, “boot.img” file from the stock rom archive, which can be found on the, “Ulefone” website.

2. Download the compressed file of your choice, "EU" or "Non-EU." (Ex. I downloaded the one for, "Non-EU" which is, "Armor_6_RF1_V01_user_20190329.tar.gz")

3. Extract the downloaded file in the location of your choice, using your favorite archive extractor (7-zip, winzip, winrar, etc...)

4. To begin the root process, Download the android app or .apk file "Magiskmanager.apk" from the Magisk Manager website, and install it in your, Armor 6 device. (Note: the Play Store does not have the, Magisk Manager app.)

5. Now pass the, "boot.img" file downloaded earlier from your computer to your Armor 6 device. Place the "boot.img" file preferably in the "downloads" folder of your Armor 6 device.

6. Open up the Magisk Manager app, and click, "install 19.3" (or what ever is the current version is) then click, "Select and Patch a File".

7. Locate your, "boot.img" file you placed in your downloads folder, and patch it with Magisk Manager. (Note: This step will create another file named, "Magisk_patched.img" in your device.)

8. After Magisk Manager has patched your file, pass the patched file from your downloads folder, back onto your computer. (Note: Not necessary but customary, to rename the patched file to, "boot.img")

9. Now, in your Armor 6 phone, go to your settings, scroll down to system click it, click on about phone, and then tap the crap out of build number, until you have become a developer.

10. Go back from about phone, click on developer options, and tick on "OEM unlocking." also scroll down and tick, "USB debugging."

11. Download ADB tools with fastboot from Android/Google.

12. With the phone connected to the computer, open up the folder where ADB is located in command prompt and type, "adb reboot bootloader"

13. Now that you are in fastboot mode, type the following prompts into the command. (NOTE: the following commands will WIPE your phone clean to stock, so backup any important files/documents before you wipe.)

  • fastboot oem unlock
    OR (if the first one fails, try the second one)
  • fastboot flashing unlock
14. Once you have unlocked your bootloader, reboot the phone, "fastboot reboot", wait till the phone boots up, go through the setting up process, enable USB debugging again (Step 13), install magisk manager again, and "adb reboot bootloader" in adb command prompt.

15. Once in fastboot mode again, flash the patched, "boot.img" file. (Note: This command will not wipe your device.)
  • fastboot flash boot boot.img
16. Reboot the phone once more, open up magisk manager, and enjoy root.


A lot of steps yes, but simple easy to do.
Note: that the basis of my instructions on telling you what to do is my assumption of you the end user having basic if not full knowledge of what I am talking about. Because I wont be providing help for basic knowledge, if that makes sense. I do not plan on making a video as this tutorial is mainly meant for users who already know what of the majority they are doing with the tools they are using. If anyone wants to make a video feel free to share it here, I will added to the thread. thanks!


UPDATE 1.0:
I organized a thread on this link, with everything needed to root, twrp, and stock image.

UPDATE 1.2:
Re-organized this thread. Removed a few steps. Added more detail to this thread specifying a few things.

To put the phone in manual fastboot mode, you have to power off your device first. By pressing both, "power button + volume down button" until you feel the phone vibrate.
Once the phone vibrates, quickly press, "Power button + volume up button" to view the fastboot/recovery/normal boot menu options. To select fastboot use the volume buttons.

Volume up = select
Volume down = move down through options.
