So since apparently no one rooted their p20 yet and I heard it wasn't possible since no boot dumped yet.

I'll provide this https://mega.nz/#!jlBFWSwR!wzozF9Zi1...DHbNOPewKJ7so8

Magisk patched boot. (oh yeah you read right!)

All you need to do is obtain your bootloader unlock code.

If you somehow fail getting the bootloader code or getting wrong code. I can write up a thread for how we did it.


Unlock the bootloader and flash ramdisk with

Fastboot flash ramdisk CLT-L29-MAGISK.img

They reboot. Simple right?

This has been tested on a demo unit (C652) and works well!

We even dumped oeminfo!

Enjoy.

Hello everyone;
Someone tried with an official version of the P20?
Since there is no procedure in case of brick phone, it would be better to be sure that it works each time before starting ..

Hi mate, may i know from which rom version is your ramdisk.img ?

Mine is from 8.1.0.106 (C185) , but am keeping yours as well, just in case, LoL

And, can you share the un-patched one as well ?

It's a copy-paste guide, don't use it.

And it's originally not even for Oreo, as they use 'recovery' partition rather than 'recovery_ramdisk'. :P

ok, thank you
I suspected a little.

However, just before I had the P20, I had an Oneplus 5T under oreo and it was still a partition recovery as usual. I rooted the Oneplus 5T by flashing the recovery quite normally: "Fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" then under twrp, flashing magisk.zip. No use of a recovery_ramdisk
