Note-
  • Applicable for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10
  • This will only root your phone with Magisk. and no other fancy stuff (Safety status may not be true)
  • If you need TWRP installation as well, please follow here
  • This requires an unlocked bootlaoder so if you have the code proceed, else it is available via paid services only.


Prerequisites-
Enable the developer option in settings-
  • Go to Settings--> About Phone-->Tab build number 7 times to enable this setting.
  • Go back in setting page, check for Developer Options
  • Scroll for the debugging section and enable the USB Debugging
  • You will be prompted for the confirmation with RSA key, just accept it.
  • Enable OEM Unlock in Developer Options
  • Please note down you build number, this may become handy in case something goes wrong to restore your phone via DLOAD. In Settings- About phone- Build Number
  • have your stock boot.img (Ramdiskig) handy from update.app file of your current firmware.

Installation of required Drivers.
  • Connect your phone to PC and install Hi Suite on PC and it will additionally install all the necessary drivers to PC and HiSUite on Mobile.
  • Download and Install ADB from Link
  • Accept all the prompts and install ADB drive system wise.
  • Once installation is completed, if default options are chosen, it will be under C:\adb


Unlocking the bootloader-
  • Backup all your data as unlocking the bootloader will reset the device and all your data will be erased.
  • On windows machine, go to folder C:\adb or wherever you installed the adb drivers.
  • Press shift+right click together and select Open command prompt here (it will be open PowerShell here on Windows 8 and Windows 10 machine)
  • Run - adb reboot bootloader (this command may prompt for acceptance of RSA key if not already accepted)
  • This will boot the phone into bootloader mode.
  • Run - fastboot oem unlock <16 digit unlock code > (This step will unlock the bootloader and will erase all your data)
  • Phone will restart automatically.



Rooting Instruction
Install latest Magisk Manager from the Official Thread or directly from here
Press Install > Install > Patch Boot Image File, and select your stock boot image file
Magisk Manager will now patch your boot image, and store it in [Internal Storage]/Download/patched_boot.img
Pull the patched image with adb pull /sdcard/MagiskManager/patched_boot.img, and flash the patched ramdisk via fastboot:
fastboot flash ramdisk patched_boot.img
Reboot and you shall have a rooted device

Boot to fastboot and check the phone status or check while phone is booting, if you get any message like phone is unlocked and can not be trusted, it is unlocked.
