Yes i have patched but when tried to flash via fastboot it said BL locked.

The link you shared isn't free. You have to pay.

And i didn't get why sp flash is needed for root? You can flash via fastboot. Just need to unlock BL first.

Would sp flash allow to flash without bl unlock?

    New TWRP with support of flashing older zips that uses /system as the mount point.

    Credits goes to @henk717, read more about it on his thread here I just used his idea and implemented for our device. Also removed a lot of partitions that were not necessary and rather harmful if someone with no knowledge wipes it so better to hide it.

    also, I ported a MIUI GSI from the Redmi 6 (which is also a mediatek device (p22) same as ours), if someone would like to test it. please get it from the below link, porting tools used are from Erfan so all credits to him if it works.

    Edit: as reported not working by many users, I am removing this gsi link.

    Disclaimer: Again, this is all testing stuff. I dont own the device you take full personal responsibility of any damage the usage of this recovery may cause rather than blaming it on me.

    I have ported some GSI's using ErfanGSI tools (all credits to him for this awesome tool) from a similar chipset as ours, good thing is that volte works on all of them, you need to follow generic gsi flashing instructions and as soon as you boot to the home screen you need to install gms apk (available on the link mentioned below) and reboot it once to get everything smooth. Camera could be broken on some roms, use open camera in that case.

    I bought hot 8 650c.It has v236 and i want to root it.
    I have read the whole thread.Can anyone just confirm the steps to root my phone?

    1: Unlock bootloader(will it erase data?)
    2: Flash patched boot.img using adb commands (someone has already uploaded it in this thread so i guess it would work?)

    And that's it?I'm rooted?Magisk will be installed with patched boot.img?
    Also can i update my phone if anyita came?
    Please answer as soon as possible.Thanks

    1. Yes, as soon as you unlock your BOOTLOADER in ADB-MINIMAL&FASTBOOT with
    "adb devices"
    "adb reboot bootloader"
    "fastboot oem unlock"
    "fastboot reboot"

    Your device will be wiped for security reasons, trust me it's better this way..
    Or you can use manual cmd "fastboot -w" if it didn't work out for wiping..

    2. YES, read adb cmd post once again thoroughly
    and after you FLASH the Patched BOOT.img check MAGISK-MANAGER for device status..

    Yes, you can update your device with OTA updates as MAGISK dont operate on SYSTEM LEVEL & the CARRIER is unaffected.
