--------------------------------------------------

Hi everyone.

Let's start with an index:
  1. Intro
  2. Boot modes
  3. Set up the PC / Get all files
  4. Start from scratch
  5. Update to newest firmware
  6. Notes/Troubleshooting
  7. Links
  8. Changelog


1 Intro
Recently got me the BQ Aquaris X Pro 128GB and wrote this because of the lack of any documentation on xda regarding unlocking/flashing/rooting/...
In this post you will find a collection of information i found spread over various sources.
I don't know if everything is right, so please report any wrong parts or missing information.

Just a sidenote: At the moment i will be using the stock rom, because it is really clean and slim and i don't want to continuously keep on track with all updates some custom roms have (and get along with possible restrictions in functionality). Because of this, an important advantage for the stock rom is that is 'just works'™ and there are regular updates which are (hopefully ) tested by BQ before release.

So here is a screenshot what the default app launcher looks like and which apps are preinstalled

The following parts will include:
- unlocking the bootloader
- installing TWRP recovery and Magisk (low level system access, root, ...)
- update BQ firmware
- re-installing TWRP/Magisk/root

Alternatively, one could easier update first and then do all the Recovery- and rootstuff, but I wanted to verify that a system update will be possible without data loss at any time later on. As i read in other forums, it is a bad idea to use the OTA functionality (over-the-air = regular/stock way for system updates) when running a rooted system with unlocked bootloader. (I didn't test this, but i didn't want to find out either..)

Warning: If you used the phone before - backup your files! The phones data will get wiped in the process (at least while unlocking the bootloader)!

Note: I took out my SIM card for the whole process and never set up WLAN, so the phone never got internet access until i disabled the search for software updates. This may prevent the update notifications.

Thanks to
- everyone at the android-hilfe.de forum, especially syscrh and blur for their threads (see [9],[10])
- Kra1o5, the TWRP maintainer for the Aquaris X Pro
- the BQ team for their firmware and of course for packaging and hosting the firmware


2 Boot modes
Precondition for both modes: phone off, no usb connection

Fastboot mode: vol_down + pwr
(if entered accidentally, long press pwr for >12sec, screen switches off, then phone will reboot (to system) after 10-20secs)

Recovery: vol_up + pwr
(navigate with vol_up and vol_down buttons, select/confirm with power button)

In detail (for new users): while phone is off, press and hold the volume-up/down button and directly after this (still holding vol_up/down) press and hold the power button as well. Hold both buttons until you see the logo and hold for approx. 1 more second. then release both buttons.

For further information or other BQ phones, take a look here: [8]


3 Set up the PC / Get all files
Get Android Debug Bridge (adb) drivers and newest firmware from BQ [1](DE) / [1](EN)
- Install drivers
- extract the firmware zip

If you already got adb on your computer, check the version - some commands may not be availlable.
For adb sideload via TWRP recovery, you should have at least adb version 1.0.32 [2]
You can get the SDK Platform Tools from Google. [3] At the time of writing (2017-09-14), they are on version 1.0.39.
A good choice may be to use the adb tools packaged in the firmware update .zip from BQ.
For the Aquaris X Pro firmware 1.4.3_20170809-1111-bardock-user-983-Fastboot-FW.zip, the tools are on version 1.0.36.

Get the TWRP image file for the Aquaris X Pro [4].
(Take a look at [5] if you own the Aquaris X.)

Get Magisk flashable .zip [6]
To be sure get the uninstaller and the Magisk Manager .apk as well.


4 Start from scratch
preconditions:
- New phone with unmodified stock rom
- Versions as reference:

- using windows 10 here, so some of the following parts may be windows specific. Linux users (ok, debian based linux users) should take a look at the packages 'android-tools-adb' and 'android-tools-fastboot'.


4.1 Prepare phone
Activate developer mode and, from the developer options:
- allow unlocking of the bootloader
- enable USB debugging mode.
Disable software update search:
- Settings -> About phone -> System updates -> untick the checkbox 'Auto-check'

Detail regarding activation of developer options:
cite from [4]
Quote:

On your device, go into Settings -> About and find the Build Number and tap on it 7 times to enable developer settings. Press back and go into Developer Options and enable USB debugging.

On the same screen enable the option 'OEM unlocking' as well.

4.2 Unlock the bootloader
Go to fastboot mode (Power off, then hold vol_down + pwr).
Connect to PC via USB.
After allowing unlocking in the developer options, you should see:

We will be using the following fastboot commands: (from 'fastboot --help')
Quote:

flashing get_unlock_ability
Queries bootloader to see if the device is unlocked.
flashing unlock
Unlocks the device. Allows flashing any partition except bootloader-related partitions.
flashing unlock_critical
Enables flashing bootloader-related partitions.

Check if bootloader unlocking is allowed, it should give the response '1'
Code:
E:\backups\android\BQ-Aquaris-X-Pro\04_firmware\1.4.3_20170809-1111-bardock-user-983-Fastboot-FW>fastboot flashing get_unlock_ability
...
(bootloader)    get_unlock_ability: 1
OKAY [  0.018s]
finished. total time: 0.020s
If you missed the 'OEM unlocking' option earlier, then you'll get:
Code:

...
(bootloader)    get_unlock_ability: 0
OKAY [  0.013s]
finished. total time: 0.013s
Stop here and go back to step '4.1 Prepare phone'

FYI, additional information:
Code:
E:\backups\android\BQ-Aquaris-X-Pro\04_firmware\1.4.3_20170809-1111-bardock-user-983-Fastboot-FW>fastboot oem device-info

Followed by the screen with the 'Aquaris X' animation and finally the welcome screen.
Disconnect USB, switch off.


Enter fastbook mode again, connect usb and check if both unlocks went fine:
Code:
E:\backups\android\BQ-Aquaris-X-Pro\04_firmware\1.4.3_20170809-1111-bardock-user-983-Fastboot-FW>fastboot oem device-info

(bootloader)    Display panel:
OKAY [  0.058s]
finished. total time: 0.060s
Done.
Stay in fastboot mode for the next step.


4.3 Install TWRP and Magisk

Now we only need one command to flash the TWRP recovery (adjust to your filepaths)
Code:
E:\backups\android\BQ-Aquaris-X-Pro\04_firmware\1.4.3_20170809-1111-bardock-user-983-Fastboot-FW>fastboot flash recovery ..\..\03_TWRP_Magisk\twrp-3.1.1-0-bardock_pro.img
target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes
sending 'recovery' (28078 KB)...
OKAY [  0.635s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  0.180s]
finished. total time: 0.817s
Now we restart the phone and go into TWRP recovery immediately at reboot - there will be an info screen with a 5 second timeout. press volume_up as soon as you see this screen.
Code:
E:\backups\android\BQ-Aquaris-X-Pro\04_firmware\1.4.3_20170809-1111-bardock-user-983-Fastboot-FW>fastboot reboot
rebooting...

finished. total time: 0.006s
Here is the screen you'll see after reboot:

Views:	488

ID:	4281240
Select 'Recovery' with vol_up/down and chose the option with the power button.
You'll see the options screen again, but this time just wait 5 seconds or press the power button and TWRP recovey will start.
TWRP will ask if it should modify the system partition. Don't apply the modifications, instead choose 'Keep Read Only'.

ID:	4281244

Note: If you chose 'yes', then take a look at section '6.1 troubleshooting'.


Now we flash Magisk from TWRP with the adb sideload function.
In TWRP choose 'Advanced' and there 'ADB sideload'. Just swipe and start the sideload mode.

From the PC, we initiate the transfer and installation of the Magisk .zip:
Code:
E:\backups\android\BQ-Aquaris-X-Pro\04_firmware\1.4.3_20170809-1111-bardock-user-983-Fastboot-FW>adb sideload ..\..\03_TWRP_Magisk\Magisk-v14.0.zip
loading: '..\..\03_TWRP_Magisk\Magisk-v14.0.zip'* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *

ID:	4281243


Now we can reboot to system. TWRP will be kept (although we only selected the temporary variant before).

This should be the first system bootup after the wipe from the bootloader unlocking process, so you will get to the welcome wizard. At this point I chose to skip the SIM card step (because i did not insert any SIM) and leave the WLAN unconfigured.
In the settings menu, go to 'About Phone' and 'Software Update' and disable the automatic updates
Click image for larger version

ID:	4281245
This should prevent any notifications regarding OTA updates as we will update via PC with the .zip firmware downloaded from BQ.

In the system you will notice the Magisk Manager App. Through this App, you can allow and deny root access for any app (a notification will pop up if any app requests root permission).
Click image for larger version

Views:	320

ID:	4281247

Enable developer options (see step '4.1 prepare phone') and enable USB debugging mode again.
Allow your PC in the popup notification and check the option to always allow this PC.


5 Update to newest firmware
preconditions:
- some older stock firmware
- unlocked bootloader (both options 'unlock' and 'unlock_critical')
- TWRP recovery
- Magisk
(these should be met if you went through all steps above...)
- newest BQ firmware from step '3 Set up the PC / Get all files'

On the PC go to the folder with the extracted BQ firmware .zip
Create a copy of 8953_fastboot_all_images.bat
Comment out or delete the following lines:
Code:
fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot reboot

6 Notes/Troubleshooting

6.1 System update notifications

As written in step '1 Intro' and '4.3 Install TWRP and Magisk' i did not let the phone get an internet connection after the wipe (bootloader unlock) and disabled the software update feature.
I don't know if this will reliably prevent the update notifications.
As a further note, user Schubbie stated on android-hilfe.de [10], that the OTA updates get saved to the path /data/data/com.bqreaders.ota/files/bq_update_ota.zip so maybe you can delete the file if an unwanted update notification pops up.

6.1 Troubleshooting
As an additional information to step '4.3 Install TWRP and Magisk'
At the point after flashing TWRP and starting it the first time, I let TWRP apply the system modifications.
After that i rebooted to check if the TWRP installation was successful...
I got "device is corrupt" when I wanted to boot into system. I continued the boot process with the power button and after that, the phone got stuck at the screen with the BQ logo and the text 'Powered by Android' (waited >10min).

To revive the phone from that state, you can flash the recovery and system images from the BQ firmware .zip
Important: Use the 'old' firmware which is still on your phone - the images have to match your current installation!
Bring the phone into fastboot mode and use the commands:
Code:
1.3.5_20170620-0532-bardock-user-594-Fastboot-FW\fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
1.3.5_20170620-0532-bardock-user-594-Fastboot-FW\fastboot flash system system.img
(In my case, the phone came with 1.3.5, so obviously I used this firmware .zip from BQ)

Now the phone is back to the state unlocked bootloader with stock rom and stock recovery.
Continue with step '4.3 Install TWRP and Magisk'.

9 Additional information, comments, ...

9.1 Update to firmware 1.5.1
As of 18.11.2017, BQ forgot to include adb and fastboot binaries in the new firmware package 1.5.1.
To update, simply copy the following files from the previous firmware package to the new directory:
Code:
adb.exe
AdbWinApi.dll
AdbWinUsbApi.dll
fastboot.exe
Proceed with instructions from post #1, section '5 Update to newest firmware'.
Don't forget to modify the .bat (comment out userdata, recovery and the reboot) and don't boot up to system after flashing. Directly go to recovery and reflash Magisk. (as described in section '5 Update to newest firmware'.)

The update has been successfully tested by ryazor (post #16) and me coming from firmware 1.4.3 and updating to 1.5.1)

For reference (maybe BQ will replace the .zip later), here is the checksum for the firmware which doesn't contain the binaries:

1.5.1_20171110-0910-bardockpro-user-1336-Fastboot-FW.md5
Code:
738664221520D446F689DCDDD5C611DF *1.5.1_20171110-0910-bardockpro-user-1336-Fastboot-FW.zip

9.2 Adb and fastboot on Linux/Ubuntu
User torbol reported that the adb and fastboot versions packaged with Ubuntu 16.04 are too old and don't support the commands for unlocking the bootloader. See his blog linked in Post #22 for further information.
Solution is to manually fetch the newer versions from the Android SDK.

9.3 tbd

10 Changelog (this post)
2017-11-18: added additional/dynamic information here in post #2, general documentation still in post #1
2017-11-19: added 9.2 with Information for linux users

Hi ironia,

hm..
There is no single restart in between the steps mentioned below. I think i had kind of the same problem when restarting at any point.
When i chose to apply the TRWP changes, my phone did not boot anymore, so that was no option for me.

The steps i mean are from section '4.3 Install TWRP and Magisk':
  • choose 'Keep Read Only' on first TWRP start
  • flash Magisk from TWRP with the adb sideload
  • reboot to system from TWRP
  • get to the welcome wizard
Did you restart before finishing the steps?

Hi roanepv,
the commands are for the Windows/DOS command prompt on the PC.
You can open the prompt with win+r and type 'cmd' then you'll have to change to the correct directory where you downloaded the files...

Keep in mind that you can brick your phone if something goes wrong.
