Ok so i found out that you cant root this phone without flashing vbmeta.img
So its pretty simple to root your phone, here are the steps:
1. Patch your boot.img with magisk
2. download vbmeta.img and put it into your adb folder (do the same with patched boot.img)
3. in adb type: adb reboot bootloader
4. check if device is connected, then type fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img [doesn't matter whats the name]
5. after flashing the boot.img, flash the vbmeta.img by typing fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img [as said i think the name doesn't matter]
6. Reboot by fastboot reboot and you are done!
ofc i will give you the vbmeta.img download link:
Maybe i will post a screenshot that my redmi 9c is rooted but im lazy so pog

Worked for me perfectly.

Downloaded the stock ROM for my Redmi 9C (V12.0.7.0.QCRMIXM) from here: https://www.xda-developers.com/down...ut-several-xiaomi-redmi-mi-poco-devices/amp/#

Extracted the boot.img from the download, patched it with Magisk then flashed the patched boot file followed by vbmeta.img via adb.

Very easy.

Do you successfully rooted your redmi 9C?
Is there no problem after rooting redmi 9C?
What model do you own?
Redmi 9C Global or Redmi 9C NFC?
Please reply
Yes, I've successfully rooted my phone and no, I've had no problems whatsoever. Everything is copacetic.
My phone is the Redmi 9c running the global MIUI 12.

Are you really sure you want and/or need to root your phone?

Please give us the boot file. I wouldn't like to download the whole firmware because have a limited data plan
As far as I know, you need the boot file for your specific version of MIUI.

No need to download the complete ROM, you can extract the boot.img file using online zip extractors (google).
