I found these 3 tutorial and they do not work to me because the fastboot commands do not run despite it is enabled in dev options the 2 things (OEM unlock and debug mode)...

it stops because device is not recognised in fastboot

the 2 apps like Kingroot and KingoRoot they both fail as android app and also the PC app gives the same
the option with Magisk app, it loads but probably newer versions do not give you chance to root direct mode. It asks you to locate a file as tar ball or another format that I have no idea where to take them. From the tutorial ilnk you get *.apk to rename as *.zip, still different file format they want

It requires a custom recovery that I do not have :(

Thanks man,

unfortunately, yesterday I kind of screwed it up:
I managed to unlock the bootloader,
reboot system and all good (reactivated dev options w/debug and OEM unlock was active)
flash TWRP
boot TWRP
flash Magisk
reboot and bootloop forever.


I could not turn off device at all, not even keeping power off. My device is still in fastboot, that was my only choice available because also TWRP does not boot. If you know an ADB/fastboot command to turn off, please tell me

Later I will try to find tutorial to solve this :(
