So, I have made a custom kernel that will allow us to have root on stock pie firmware.
You will need to format data unless you want to stay encrypted. If you wish to stay encrypted you can skip step 12
Above kernels based on CSE3 source.
- Copy the g96x0_pie_vx.zip to your external sd card.
- Make sure you have TWRP installed found here for g9600 or here for g9650.
- Flash the g96x0_pie_vx.zip
- Flash Magisk
- Reboot to system.
If you currently do not have a working lockscreen/pin/fingerprint setup, you will need to restore your stock boot.img either via backup or extract your boot.img from the official firmware and flash the img then flash my kernel.
