    Post Blackview BL8800 Pro rooting

    BTW it looks like the new firmware update, notwithstanding rooting, comes via OTA. Has anyone with rooted phone already flashed and re-rooted? Thanks

    Hi is it fundamental to have? As far as I see, the phone, once rooted, does everything needed.

    Thanks for the interesting insight. Did you flash with the original or the new recent firmware? Can you publish a link to the right SP Flashtool? Thanks!

    As far as this can help, I recently switched to an android 11 device (also rooted) and am experiencing the same trouble: on my previous phone (sony xperia XZP, android 9) my favourite app AlarmDroid took hold of everything doing the following: starting automatically showing the clock icon on...

    OK, when you issued the "fastboot devices" command, did the output string contain "EEA"? This is important to know if the firmware was the same geographic version. Also, before flashing, did you check in the phone info menu if the onboard version was the same 20220617V02 of the downloaded...

    SO you installed the magisk with the ZIP file from recovery and not directly with the APK from android? Can this be source of trouble on this specifice device? I installed the APK and it did the job from userspace.

    Fantastic! So you uploaded boot.img, patched it with magisk and then flashed it from PC through fastboot, right? At the end I would like to to edit 1st message and describe the procedure which has been successful for the most.

    Post Blackview BL8800 Pro rooting

    Very likely the fastboot mode can be consistently entered only from the built-in recovery (thanks Blackview for including it from factory!). I am happy that you overcame this obstacle, now please let us know how rooting is going!

    Very likely you are missing the right USB drivers, on linux this is no problem, while you may try the windows Blackview official drivers at this link: https://mega.nz/file/XCIWQYyL#KfRQmHtnMRkMQ8-i0ijgspWSyDbs_NLsjvKGnmagbl8

    Yes, the MT68xx platform is likely to have introduced substantial modifications to the architecture and, therefore, the extraction methods. Is anybody reading this thread aware of new tools? About the SW, I got no restrictions at all, pls let me know in private how you would like to receive them.

    Post Blackview BL8800 Pro rooting

    Hello :) First of all, I didn't worry about unlocking bootloader as, pressing power+vol_up buttons when phone is off, already lets you enter to a factory stock bootloader with a menu an option of which can also apply patches, so it looks kinda "ready" without the need of injecting something via...

    Hello, thanks Storm for your new efforts! These days I was also thinking the following: 8.49 is probably the (almost?) last version to offer unmitigated spectre vulnerabilities, as snapdragon835 should be in the list of non-immune CPUs. Would it someday be possible to conceive a rooting "from...
