Guide worked great thanks. But how do we hide root from apps without enforcing the denylist? (If I enforce, Safetynet fails. If I don't enforce, apps can detect root even though I've hidden Magisk). On Pixel 5/A13.

Edit: found Shamiko from the LSposed team and it works great. Cheers!

If your carrier will unlock the bootloader , yes.

In this Safeunlocks article, they write about Carrier (Sims card) unlocking not bootloader unlocking Spectrum Mobile's phones.

Try this to determine if the bootloader is unlockable.

Go to the OP, ~ ~ ~ Part II - INSTRUCTIONS ~ ~ ~, 1. Unlock Bootloader/Return Phone to Stock/Lock Bootloader, • Unlock Bootloader and do number 3.

3. Activate Developer Options: Tap Settings > About Phone > Tap Build Number 7 times or until you see you are a Developer. Tap back > System > Advanced > Developer Options. Enable OEM Unlock and, USB Debugging


If you can enable OEM Unlock your phone has an unlockable bootloader and you can root it.

I see here that the Pixel 5 can be rooted with Magisk Delta. However, that was with Android 13.

Has anyone rooted a Pixel 5 with Magisk Delta for Android 11? I want to try to do that, and before I dive in, I'd like to know whether anyone has done this successfully on an Android-11-based Pixel 5.

Thank you in advance.

Thank you. I know how to do this. My question is as follows:

Has anyone actually successfully accomplished this with a Pixel 5 under Android 11 and Magisk Delta? If possible, I'd like that confirmation before I dive in and try it myself.

Thank you again, very much.

I haven't, but you could do a search on this thread for Magisk Delta. Good luck.

Thank you. I already did extensive searches on this thread and several other threads, and I didn't find an answer.

That's why I posted this question here. Given that this is a "root-pixel-5" thread, I'm hoping that someone who has rooted their Android-11-based Pixel 5 with Magisk Delta might read my question in this thread and be able to offer that kind of confirmation.

PS: and the "Magisk Delta" thread is another one of the threads in which I already did extensive searching without finding an answer ... and so I already posted a similar question in that thread, as well, for the same reason.

Ok. Are you wanting to root android 11 with Magisk Delta as a test before you root with android 13?

I don't even want to upgrade above Android 11 at all for the time being. The higher the Android version, the more restrictions there seem to be, and it seems more difficult and complicated to hide root and hide mods.

I just want to root the standard factory Android 11 that comes with the new Pixel 5 and just use it as is.

Some time in the future, I might decide to upgrade to A12 or A13, but I don't want to do that too soon.

I would use Magisk v23 for A11.

Thank you. Have you or anyone else here successfully rooted A11 on the Pixel 5 with Magisk 23.0?

As I have explained here, I am looking for people who can confirm successful rooting of an A11 Pixel 5.

Thank you again.

Yes.

Basically up until A13 as I wasn't really in love and sold on A12 yet.
But I ended up really liking A13 so I've stayed on it

However up until then, I ran crDroid A11 and stayed on Magisk v23.

Oh, thank you!

So, just a standard crDroid 11 installation plus Magisk 23.0, correct?

I've used crDroid before on a different device, and I'm familiar enough with it to be sure that this would be a lot easier and less headache-producingly complicated than trying to install any of the post-23.0 Magisk versions and their supported modules on stock A11 or above.

Furthermore, I've been currently using Magisk 23.0 on an Android-10-based OnePlus device, and I have no problems or headaches with 23.0.

So, I'm now strongly considering your suggestion!

Thank you again!

Very welcome, my friend.

Yes standard crDroid v7 found in Pixel 5 ROM section.

I agree, this is a wonderful ROM and definitely worth running. Most Magisk modules are updated to run on Magisk v23 and above, so you shouldn't run into much of any compatibility issues.

I didn't update Magisk from v23 until I updated to A13, then I started running the latest Magisk versions.

Also here is the custom update channel to stop new updates in Magisk.

    However if it is not rooted should i not be able to view netflix on the playstore?
    Check OP
    Pass Safety Net with SafetyNet Fix
    You have to clear the storage / caches because it remembers what it last detected.

    Update
    lineageOS 20.0 for the Google Pixel 5 (redfin) Nightly

    What do you get when you run this.
    After reinstallation from Google play store i can access via app to Netflix and it works for me without any issue.

    received a pixel 5 the other day. so correct me if I'm wrong, grey out OEM unlocking is in no way bypass able. I'm guessing this is a refurbed Verizon phone that is carrier unlocked some how.
    AFAIK if OEM unlocking is greyed out you cannot unlock the bootloader, and no bypass has been found.

    You're welcome booo.

    is there a magisk boot img with modules disabled?. i have a boot loop and need a boot img with it disabled.
    You should have your stock image you can push over. I do not think replacing the boot image with another patched image would disable anything. You can also use adb to remove any modules. Regardless heres my patched boot image and the command to remove modules. Power off, connect phone enter this command, hold power button to boot phone.

    adb wait-for-device shell magisk --remove-modules

    Patched December build boot image

    For people who are having bootloops with patched boot.img
    Please pay attention to this step in the guide
    Section 7
    Under Patching boot.img
    4- Depending on the version of Magisk Manager installed: Set the Update Channel to Beta or Canary.

    Even if you install beta / canary magisk apk, if you don't select the matching channel, you'd get a bootloop, so don't forget that important step.
