Hi members - I have one of these phones that I have been trying to ROOT - it's one of the fake versions out of China (via Wish.com) that claims to have Android 10 (and a bunch of other stuff) but is actually only running 5.1
I wanted to try and ROOT it to see if I can actually load Android 10 on it (adb sideload) but cannot get ROOT level permissions.
Happy to provide any resources from logs to backup files from the phone - can you advise me what the best steps are?

1 step - make a backup
and give me the uploadlink for this backup (zip rar) on google disk
2step - I make TWRP with the kernel from backup, you install it to recovery partition and flash Magisk-v20.4.zip
That's all you need, install MagiskManager-v8.0.4.apk and you can work with ROOT
---------------------------------
2 Examples are here
1) 1014x480 TWRP-P40proPL.img
2) 960x480 TWRP-p40.img

Your ROM is 8GB // kernel Linux version 3.10.72 ([email protected]) (gcc version 4.8 (GCC) ) #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Sep 28 16:00:54 CST 2020 in boot partition// display res is 480x1014 ===on screenshot//phone has touch chip = gsl915
---------------------------------------------------
you need 3 files: scatter.txt , your preloader and TWRP-P40proPLus.img(rename it to recovery.img) .... With SPflashtool , mode Download only , One check on recovery , not check preloader!!! Switch off your phone and connect to PC.... then load to recovery(custom recovery)

to see if I can actually load Android 10 on it (adb sideload)
Here is a port of LineageOS 13.0/ 3.10.72 Android 6.01 (sdk 23) with your stock kernel/// I think this is optimal for your hardware
