I just got a UMIDIGI Power 3 and have been trying to root it using the Magisk Boot.img patching method. This ends up in a boot loop for me. Flashing the original Boot.img back allows the phone to boot properly.

Anyone have ideas on other safe methods to root? My bootloader is unlocked, but I don't think we have a custom anything for this phone.

Update: I found that the F2 rooting process works on Power 3 as well

I can't find the thanks button anywhere, but ThankS for asking, I ordered this model too. It is a new model still, so i expect it is hardly being worked on, if at all yet. Then there is the time after someone starts to "crack it" so to speak. Stock android 10 on this U-P3, and I only want a soft root, for a few extra functions for some apps lo, maybe a generic supersu setup will work now? At the price (£120-£150 new), for what it offers, I expect someone will root it and share how soon. As a noob i think i'd rather wait and see someone using it rooted before potentially bricking a phone i don't even have yet lol.
(edit. thanks button jus popped up lol)

Problem Sound Umidigi Power 3
I just hope that yours does not win as much as mine ...

Device show ball works very fast without locks extraordinary battery but mine came with sound defect ...

Out of nowhere the device stops emitting sound and only after restarting the device the sound comes back or I noticed that I connect and disconnect several times the headset p2 the audio comes back without restarting, that is, today I got it out of the box for 2 days 09 / 03/2020 in Brazil i bought it on aliexpress and sent a message to the seller about what happened and no answer for now and by the way i must be at a loss because sending the device back to china to get a refund will cost me half the value of the device and I'm going to end up with it like this while I'm looking for a program to help me with this as an example by isolating the P2 audio output to see if for this error ....

NOTE: I took out of the box I already had a software update I let it do and started normal and I noticed the sound defect I restored the device as original from the factory to see if it resolved and nothing helped it went back to being silent from nothing after a rest period without using it the device happens because if you leave playing music it doesn’t stop ...

In short, I do not know what to do waiting for a response from the seller or find a program to solve this ....

And making it clear I loved the device it is very good just sad with that part of the sound.

Did you try this?

1.
make magisk_patched.img by Magisk Manager

2.
get recovery.img & vbmeta.img from stock ROM

3.
boot to fastboot mode

4.
fastboot flashing unlock
(unnecessary if already unlocked)
fastboot flashing unlock_critical
(if I remember correctly, at this moment the phone rebooted, you will need to take it to the fastboot again)
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash boot magisk_patched.img
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot reboot

it works for me.

it works for me.

Can you explain your steps further. Until a month ago I used an old phone with Android 4, which only needed supersu for rooting. So these programms are fairly new to me
Yesterday I tried to root that thing for a whole day without success. Unlocking the bootloader was not a problem but rooting really finished me.

As far as I understand from the Magisk Manager website, I either need to have a rooted phone already to install Magisk Manager, or I need to install Magisk Manager over TWRP, which doesn't exist for the Phone as of right now. Kinda a dead end.
I also wasn't able to extract the boot img with the MTK droid tool. Seems like the last update was 4 years ago and it isn't supported anymore.

Have you tried to deactivate voice recognition. I've read in a review that a lot of audio problems can be solved if you deactivate the "OK Google" Assistant.

With respect to sound issue. I read it is an equaliser problem that needs an update. Quick work around, is to turn on a sound for key presses, it keeps the equaliser running or something.

Magisk Manager apk file exists.
Google it.
you don't need TWRP to install only Magisk Manager.

you can download stock ROM from UMIDIGI community website.
you can find img files in the archive file.

I sent an email on the support on the Umidigi website and they really answered that the problem of disappearing the sound of the device is related to "Ok Google" and I deactivated the function and is working normally without missing the sound and said that they are working on a update to correct this defect.

And thanks to everyone at XDA I will continue to follow what they have for more than the Umidigi Power 3 and I am enjoying the device so far.

Well fu*k ... seems like I've bricked my device.
Installing Magisk manager worked fine and I've modified and flashed the boot.img without problems.
But during flashing the recovery.img it seems like I've touched my usb cable and disconnected the phone from the PC. I didn't think much about it in the beginning and rebooted it...just to be greeted with an endless boot loop. Right now I can't even shut it off. Holding the power button doesn't do anything.
That failed flashing action even seems to have locked my bootloader again. At least I don't see the message: Orange status. your bootloader has been modified.

I tried for the last hour to get somehow into fastboot. No chance.

When I boot into fastboot none of the commands are recognized. I'm using platform-tools_r29.0.6-windows.zip for adb and fastboot. When I boot into fastbootd, fastboot devices works, but none of the other commands. Has anyone succesfully rooted their Power 3? If so how did you do it?
