...hello,

first things first: ...you have to unlock your bootloader for get this working ...you will need Magisk and default ADB and fastboot tools ...I won´t get into the bootloader unlocking part or essentials

...I suggest getting "Oxygen Updater" at Google PlayStore and download your FULL rom ...maybe it will complain about the "wrong" version (India/Europe) but I know I´m in Europe and it´s a CPH2409 ...so I got the most recent full update, in my case: CPH2409_11_A.11 ...you have to download the same version as actually installed

...after downloading the File, get the PayLoadDumperGo from XDA Member ssssut and extract the downloaded file ...maybe you will need to add "liblzma-5.dll" to the directory ...I think you will manage it by yourself ...you will only need the "boot.img" and "vbmeta.img"

...copy the boot.img to your phone and patch it with the usual Magisk method (install / choose file) and copy back the resulting magisk_boot.img to your pc.

...now the tricky part ...and yes, I got the "broken Boot/Recovery Image Screen" and yes I was scared for just a few seconds ...but I solved it and here is how:

reboot your Device to fastboot mode (unlocked) and type:
Code:
fastboot flash boot .\magisk_boot.img

DO NOT REBOOT NOW!!!

...you will have to flash vbmeta.img like this:
Code:
fastboot flash --disable-verity --disable-verification vbmeta .\vbmeta.img

...now it´s time to reboot and when it´s done just start up Magisk Manager and finish the setup and you´re done ...simple as can be :D

...best regards

...you can have as much information as you wish or need, just ask

...I don't know how many people tried this ...but I think it's an easy and "TWRP - less" way rooting the device ...I already extracted the device tree and maybe I will have a look at building some recovery ...but it's not really needed or useful on A/B devices with "super partition" 😅

...by the way:

Model: CPH2409
Device: holi

...addicted since Ginger Bread 2.3 as you, Sir 😅😉

...but, I can understand your doubts ...too many "root your bla bla" and it doesn't stop on XDA, neither ...I can just suggest you to download the "Full Image" for your Software Version in "Oxygen Updater" and expand the resulting "payload.bin" with the appropriate (python ???) tool

...but be sure to know more about A/B partitioning as I did until yesterday 😅

...very best regards

Followed instructions, yet managed to brick mine. It often crashes during boot, and once it makes it through and android launches, the screen is unresponsive. After a minute or so it crashes and tries to reboot.

Because I'm unable to authorize debugging options on my phone, I can't enter any commands through ADB and am therefore blocked from resetting or recovering.

you should be able to launch recovery mode and wipe no ?

...are you sure you downloaded the correct firmware for your device??? ...I know the touch problems or display issues can happen with the wrong firmware because of the kernel module implementation ...if you didn't play around with TWRP or some recovery foo, you can enter fastbootd mode for sure ...because the same happened to me 😅 ...and yes, not fastboot ...I really mean fastbootd ...in this emergency mode, you will get Chinese or Korean letters and can navigate with the volume buttons

...and by the way, I didn't know you have to authorize the regular fastboot mode???

...maybe you describe your steps more detailed ...what was the initial firmware version, which one did you download, did you do Magisk patching, did you pay attention to flash to the correct slot, did you patch Magisk during or after the update and so on ...once again: it's nearly impossible to brick new devices with a/b partitioning and fastbootd support ...we will get you through this, don't worry

best regards

    Recovered from HardBrick. :)

    thanks for suggestions, but
    - i was not able to turn off the phone - only after battery exhausting -- plug to charger - immediately error screen
    - phone was not recognized by any usb 2 or 3.
    - sent to warranty and already got my money back
    oh.
    By removing the cable and holding both volume buttons( + , - )and power button . All three buttons at a time switches off.

    You have to hold all three buttons till switches off and release immediately after it switches off else it reboots to crash message.

    After that volume - and power button takes to fastboot mode. Then we have to connect usb cable.

    you can find info on rooting the CE2 Lite in the Nord N20 5G sub forum. root process should be exactly the same since its basically the same device. only we still dont have access to Full OTA's so we went a different route
    checked and found nothing
