Sorry for the noob quick brain isnt working right now.
For installing Magisk using the canary build for this device, when I go to install it ask for the .img to patch. Which img file are you using to patch are we to use the boot.img found in the ROM or are using something else?
Or should I be installing Magisk via recovery?
Patch boot.img, or rename Magisk.apk to Magisk.zip and install via recovery. Either method is supposed to work, but I have not tried the latest Magisk myself.
