The first time you upgrade to Android 12 you must wipe your phone in addition to disabling verity and permission to root it.Hello all, Pixel 4a5G on Xfinity Mobile. I was perfectlty rooted on v11 but decided to install the latest v12.0.0 (SP1A.211105.002.A1) Nov 2021 Verizon, Verizon MVNOs>
Tried to root via Magisk only to fail multiple times. I thought I bricked my phone as it was stuck in recovery but got int to boot again. I tried doing it like I did in V11 but have discovered that this no longer works
Patched Boot.img with Magisk and renamed to magisk_patched_boot.img
Placed both files in on PC in my ADB folder
Disabled AVB and DM Verify via fastboot flash --disable-verity --disable-verification vbmeta vbmeta.img
Flashed patched boot.img via fastboot flash boot magisk_patched_boot.img
Rebooted and it is stuck in bootloader
What am I doing worng. Does it have to do anything with the Nov 2021 security updates. At this point I'm thinking about going back to 11.
Thanks in advance
Read the Notes in #4, then do #4 'Wipe data'.
