No it is not dangerous but first of all what Rom are you using? I use EUI6.0.30s without bloat. I think I have the original boot.img

Could you upload it? i am on soft brick...i cannot reboot my phone...i always need a file to boot with fastboot...so i need the original to flash it again.
Yes i have EUI6.0.30s original stock rom

also i cannot make the magisk patched img...i choose install->patch to iso boot and it ask me to choose stock boot...i select an image and it says boot image patched by unsupported programs please restore stock boot image...installation failed

also i need the original recovery image to reflash it...

Can I ask you why do you use this ROM? Why don't u use the modded one. I use the modded EUI 6. I can provide u with the link. It is without bloatware. You won't find any advertising throughout the system apps.

After installing this one via fastboot boot to twrp and flash the second file. To do so copy the second file to a pen drive. Flash it via twrp using a type C OTG connector. You need to do that because the internal storage of the phone is encrypted. For me this was the only way to update the Rom. The first link is version 3 and the second is version 4 which is important to stop force close of certain app.

I thought you were aware of the modded EUI6. Sorry for replying one day after, I don't get any notification. I will provide you the TWRP in a while

    So I have admittedly made the mistake of confusing the AI edition with the non AI edition, but nonetheless would like to continue on and make the most out of my device, so I'd like to start a thread where we can pool together and try to root the Le Pro 3 AI x651.

    Quick note just to be explicit: This phone is very different to the LeEco Pro 3, and does not have a Qualcomm chipset and no source code at http://opensource.le.com/ and if its not too late you should not buy it.

    ROM
    The ROM for this device can be found under the name "FULL_X7_X7-CN-FN-KGXCNFN5902504131S-5.9.025S" (e.g. http://combinefile.com/home/browse/...25S_Firmware_Flash_File_Tested_By_Combinefile, if someone has suggestions for reuploading it let me know).

    Similar Devices
    When looking for help, the following are devices with similar chipsets that may yield resources, let me know if you know others. (Often phones just take a reference design for a lot of things):
    • Lenovo Note K8
    • LeEco x620

    Unlocking
    Most of the unlocking steps are similar to other phones
    1. Go to Settings -> About -> Hit Build 7 times
    2. Go to Settings -> Developer Options -> Enable OEM unlocking
    3. Run 'adb reboot bootloader'
    4. Use 'fastboot oem unlock'
    5. You can now double check if your device is unlocked using 'fastboot oem device-info' (if anyone knows any other commands let me know)

    Rooting?
    This is where I have been making some progress, but haven't quite gotten there yet. So I know the following:

    1. There is no TWRP for this device (yet)
    2. TWRP from other MTK6797 devices does not work
    3. You should be able to port TWRP if you get the recovery.img file, which is not included in the ROM
    4. You can dump the recovery.img file if you have root
    5. We can dump the boot.img, edit it, flash it to recovery and boot from it
    6. Just changing ro.adb.secure/ro.secure does not solve it (see below)
    7. 'su' is also missing from /system/bin, I will try to add one and see what that does

    Editing and booting boot.img
    1. Download the ROM
    2. Unpack boot.img (seems to be fine using "Superr's kitchen" though I'm guessing most tools/kitchens for this will work")
    3. Edit e.g. default.prop
    4. Pack boot.img
    5. Run 'adb reboot bootloader'
    6. Make sure you are unlocked then run: 'fastboot flash recovery boot.img' (I think directly booting with 'fastboot boot boot.img' may also work)
    7. Run 'adb shell' and then perform 'cat /default.prop', you should see your changes
    8. Unfortunately the ROM seems to have a file called '/data/recovery_rootcheck' and sadly rooting does not work, so this is WIP and any feedback ideas would be great

    Extracting System.new.dat
    This file contains most of the ROM files and is nice to see what the device all does. We can use the tool 'sprs2ext.exe' (and again there are probably many others that do the job) to extract it to a 'system.img.ext4' file. This can the be viewed with any ext4 viewing program, e.g. ext2explore.

    Getting the recovery.img
    It would be nice if some people could refrain from overwriting their recovery.img, since we need to dump it somehow (unless someone has other ideas sources).

    X650

    thanks for sharing you're experience, I'm waiting for X650 too.
    Can you explain me what kind of mistakes\what step you did that bricked the phone?
    Did you manage to resurrect it?

    I tried to get rid of Orange State message which will come up after flash of TWRP.
    It will tell you, that your phone can not be trusted anymore, blablabla...

    Somewhere I have read about to flash "Stop-Orange something file" and this I did which was the big mistake.
    Afterwards it was completely bricked, even some interface was detected frequently for duration of seconds in PC, but no chance to use sp-flashtool at current state.

    So stay away of this. Please read "streamlined Root" thread from post #12 for details.

    Finally I tried to disconnect the battery or a while, but this also did not help. (Yes, I opened the phone ;) )

    So using https://github.com/phhusson/super-bootimg I was able to perform a systemless root.

    To do this:
    1. Download super-bootimg: `git clone https://github.com/phhusson/super-bootimg.git'
    2. In the super-bootimg create the directory output/lex651/ and place boot.img as orig-boot.img in it
    3. Build it using `chmod +x build.sh; ./build.sh myphone`
    4. Boot using `fastboot boot boot-output-lex651-su-eng-r203.img` (once in recovery etc), the image is located in myphone/lex651/

    I'll try uploading the boot bin in a moment. Could someone please try dumping their recovery.img then we can see if we can get TWRP to work?
