I can't get it to root. I do a fastboot flash boot magisk_patched.img and it fails every time. Anyone had any luck rooting this way?
Yes, successfully rooted this way. I didn't play around with any of the betas so this was my first time to just dirty flash right over 10. I patched my own boot.img like usual and transferred it over to my adb folder before flashing. Since you're using MM Canary already, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe your patched boot.img is corrupt? Did you flash the full image or OTA? Next step for me (after creating a new patched boot.img) would be to clean flash the full image. Best of luck.

do you have a link to the canary apk?

I tried going to the canary page, but the download link is dead. TIA

I had trouble rooting but eventually got it to work. I deleted all previous boot images and patched images from phone and pc. Reinstalled platform tools. Grabbed fresh boot img from the factory image, patched it then flashed it. And we're in biz
