I found a way to root this tablet booted root. However it will tell you it has a red state when you turn it on and stall your boot by 5 sec.

NOTE: If you would like to obtain your own boot image from your tablet to feel safer Follow this Post Here

steps:

step 1: Download mtk-easy-su From the link Below

step 2: install mtk-easy-su.apk

step 3: open the mtk-easy-su

step 4: press the yellow circle # button
Note: wait for it to say given super user permissions to magisk manager

step 5: go to settings/About Tablet/

step 6: tap build number until it says "Your Now a Developer!" at the bottom of the screen

step 7: go to settings/Developer Options

step 8: enable Usb Debugging

step 9: plug your tablet into your computer

step 10: go to install adb from the Here

step 11: then download this boot.img that has been patched to support Magisk from link below

step 12: open command prompt and type adb push (MagiskBoot.img) /sdcard/MagiskBoot.img

step 13: type adb shell

step 14: type su
Note: Approve the request for adb to have super user priveleges by Magisk
Note: Tap Grant when prompted
step 15: type dd if=/sdcard/MagiskBoot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8
VERY IMPORTANT TO WAIT UNTIL FLASHING IS DONE

step 26: type reboot

then your device will be rooted form boot

Hi, I don't really understand what goes into step 12.

"step 12: open command prompt and type adb push (MagiskBoot.img) /sdcard/MagiskBoot.img"

Won't this trip dm-verity and cause bootloop

P.S. if it doesn't cause problems then can you do the same for recovery?

I'm not sure about DM-Verity. However i can confirm it does not cause a bootloop for whatever reason as it does on my other tablets. I entirely understand your fear but i took a shot in the dark and it worked haha.

I am unsure what step your at have you installed the custom boot.img then you shouldnt need to do that. If you just installed Magisk then no you must obtain root you are installing the Rooted boot.img to the boot partition on this device the ones "modified" with Magisk.
Well now it's no more needed..

As i created OrangeFox for this device and and installed permanent magisk ..😄😁

But yeah red state stall boot by 5s ...

If you know any fix for red state then kindly tell me ..

OrangeFox is a recovery just like TWRP recovery (Team Win Recovery Project)..

And from permanent root i meant root will persist even after rebooting device ...

As here the root is just temporary and its gonna vanish on reboot ...
