Yeah we must unlock bootloader frist. But there is no driver for infinix note 8 to connect fastboost
The Infinix Note 8 is based on Mediatek Helio G80 chipset, hence you must install Android USB Driver suitable for this chipset.

do it your own risk..im not responsible for any happening to your unit...

Back Up....Back up!

activate OEM unlocking in Developers Option and use this file to unlock.



Disable DMverity or flash the IN8 with empty vbmeta(img) before rooting!!!! to prevent bootlop....


then use magisk manager to root, google the procedure......

install magisk apk to IN8
copy boot.img from your back up to IN8 (or get from hovatek)
now patch this boot.img using magisk.
copy the patched boot.img to the folder of the extracted file i attached and flash it in fastboot mode..

and your done..
