Hello everyone, this is my first post here, I'm planning on buying a phone with high specs, good camera and the possibility to access root so my attention went to Xiaomi 12T Pro.

I've seen a two-weeks old post on reddit where some guy with this same phone asked for help and ultimately managed to root it using magisk, however the 12T pro has a snapdragon chipset and from my last experience (about 6 years ago) snapdragon devices can't be rooted? Maybe that guy had the normal 12 pro and got confused with the name?
Anyway I have a laptop so if there's a possibility/potential in the future to root this phone I might as well buy it.

If you want I can also link the reddit post so you can give it a look.

Thanks everyone.


Edit: thanks for the answers, when I buy this phone an root it I can let you know how it went. (y)

Here is step-by-step tutorial

Step 1 Unlock bootloader (it will erase ALL YOUR DATA)

1) create and login in Mi account
2) go to settings>My device>All specs> click MIUI version several times
3) go to settings>additional settings>developer options> here enable OEM unlocking, usb debugging and link your Mi accont to phone
4) download latest MI unlock tool from official site https://en.miui.com/unlock/download_en.html and unzip the archive into a folder
5) download qualcomm usb drivers or launch driver_install_64.exe in downloaded MI unlock tool folder
6) launch miflash_unlock.exe and login in your MI account, hold power and volume down for 5-7 sec to boot in fastboot mode, connect phone to pc
7) try to unlock (it will say to wait 1-7 days and try again)
8) Voila, your phone unlocked and wiped

Step 2 flashing or booting TWRP

1) go to settings>additional settings>developer options> here enable usb debugging
2) download platform-tools https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools
3) download TWRP https://mega.nz/file/USUjQR4D#g8_rCCouOcJLK4DrryIyHbE99dwP4Hj-T-XSBtoSx6Q
3) unzip the archive into a folder
4) put twrp-3.6.2_A12-diting-skkk.img in the same folder
4) run cmd (win+r and type "cmd")
5) type "cd path/to/folder" (if folder not on C drive run "DriveLetter:" for example "D:"
6) boot in fastboot and connect phone to pc
7) type "fastboot devices" your phone should appear

Method 1 flashing TWRP (recomended)
pros: easily accesible (just hold power and volume up for 5-7 sec)
cons: replaces original recovery


8) type "fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.6.2_A12-diting-skkk.img"
9) fastboot reboot
10) hold power and volume up for 5-7 sec)
11) install magisk (flash downloaded magisk.apk or zip in recovery)

Method 2 booting in TWRP (not recommended on this device, may cause bootloop)

pros: original recovery wont be replaced
cons: loads temporary recovery, once you booted system or disabled device TWRP will be erased


8) type "fastboot boot twrp-3.6.2_A12-diting-skkk.img"
9) install magisk (flash downloaded magisk.apk or zip in recovery)

11) install magisk (flash downloaded magisk.apk or zip in recovery)

Just confirming: in the TWRP page, the 12T Pro is not listed as a compatible device (https://twrp.me/Devices/Xiaomi/).
Will the provided version of the TWRP work? I would like to avoid boot loops or even a hard brick.

And, would Orange Fox work too? Could you point us the correct version?

TIA.

Provided version works on my device (Mi 12T Pro, Global ROM). Hardbrick is impossible if flashing TWRP in recovery partition.

I didn't found compatible Orangefox recovery

There are 3 versions of TWRP:
BOOT:
Command:
fastboot boot twrp.img
powershell
./fastboot boot twrp.img
then in Twrp go to Advanced -> flash current TWRP

REC:
Update with existing TWRP.
gold
CMD
fastboot flash recovery_ab twrp.img***
powershell
./fastboot flash recovery_ab twrp.img***

BOOT REC:
Both methods

On this thread the proposed version is REC.
***Remove lock screen security and reboot to decrypt data then install TWRP.
Reboot with the buttons combination and not with a fastboot command

Update REC
twrp-3.7.0_12-v6.5_A12-diting-skkk.img
https://sourceforge.net/projects/recovery-for-xiaomi-devices/files/diting/

XIAOMI-FRANCE.COM-Installer-une-ROM-avec-TWRP-1-768x453.jpg
Then reboot TWRP​

No need TWRP for Rooting
Root:

1. Find or redownload the TGZ file for your current ROM
2. Browse inside the zip file and find boot.img under the images folder
3. Copy this file to a temporary location in your PC first, and then transfer it to your phone
4. Install the desired version of Magisk app (V23?)
5. Run the app and choose Install under Magisk
6. Choose Select and Patch a File, then select the boot.img that was transferred earlier
7. A process will run and create a new .img file in the same folder where the original one was
8. Transfer the new file to your PC in the same directory where fastboot.exe is located
9. Open a command prompt window in that same directory
10. Reboot your phone to fastboot mode and connect to PC, USB2.0 port. Check for connection by running command fastboot devices.
11. Run the command fastboot flash boot_ab magiskXXXX.img

Once it's completed, run command fastboot reboot and the phone should boot and be rooted.

I would like to inform any new thinker for root possibility in this device that I was not able to hide the root by Google Pay/Wallet in this phone (ROM: 13.0.11.0 - SLFEUXM), by executing the casual procedures:
All other bank apps I use have no clue that I am rooted, and work flawlessly.

If you know something more I can try, I will be happy to get any help on the matter.
Try island app on Google play

Maybe you have already tried this (your links don't work):
magisk/settings/hide Magisk, renaming it..
Zygisk enable/enforce exclusion list enable.
Configure exclusion list / display system apps / check those related to your problem.
Reboot.

    Just did as instructed and it works. Only bummer is that twrp is in Chinese. I did google a youtube video and followed instructions to change language. So far all good.
