I have rooted my last few smartphones and was always happy with it. Now I got new Blackview BV9800 PRO and I want to root it with Magisk. but as the phone is new, there is lack of information on the internet, Anyway, I have found some information, but it is not complete and I believe You, smart guys, can help me to root my smartphone
This is the information I got:
How to root it with Magisk :
Download your rom from : viewtopic.php?f=285&t=532354 (you can alternatively extract it with SP Flash Tool and WWR)
Download and install Magisk Manager on your phone : https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/rel ... v7.5.0.apk
Patch the boot image with Magisk Manager
Unlock the bootloader. (Wipe the phone! )
Flash the patched boot image with SP Flash Tool or Fastboot. (ONLY the boot image)
Reinstall Magisk Manager
This is what I did and what happened:
I installed latest Magisk apk from official sources. I opened the app, clicked on "Install Magisk", then via this app I downloaded the zip file, then tried to installed it via Magisk but got an error "Unsupported/Unknown image format".
Any ideas what have I done wrong? Did I have to flash boot image from the ROM, and not the one Magisk downloaded? P.S., the smartphone is new, nothing more then I written above is done to it (no oem unlocking, no usb debugging, etc).
