Fellow techies,

I just got my new Ulefone Armor 10 5G. Terrific phone, but (of course) I want to root it, ideally with a systemless technique (a la Magisk and a patched boot.img file). However, I'm not having a lot of luck.

I've tried following the process described here:


I've been able to successfully extract boot.img from the stock ROM downloaded from Ulefone (current release A101A88C7.GQU.HB.FHJ.VFYDYT.1209.V3.02) and patch it with Magisk (v22.0.apk release). However, when I flash the patched boot to the phone, it ends up in a bootloop. Re-flashing the unmodified boot.img file restores things to operation.

I've come across mutterings about flashing a blank dm_verity file, or something like that, but this is not a concept I've come across before.

So -- Anyone successfully rooted an Armor 10 5G as yet? If so, how'd you do it?

I'll keep trying... Thanks in advance.

UPDATE 27-Feb-21
------------------------------

I'm putting my rooting efforts for this one on hold for now. I went as far as trying MTK Droid Tool ('Unrecognized ROM format, Backup not possible') and Miracle Box, with an eye to extracting the actual boot.img file sets from the phone and attempting to patch them: No luck.

I also tried using SP Flash tool to push the patched boot.img to the phone: Again, no luck. Right back into a bootloop, which could only be corrected by using fastboot mode to flash the unmodified boot.img back in.

I would prefer not to use Kingroot, or any of the other one-click apps, or flashing TWRP and a custom recovery, until I know for certain a systemless root is not possible (thanks for the suggestion, though).

Is the Armor 10 5G even rootable? I hope so. However, based on my experiences so far, it's going to take someone with more skill sets than I have to crack this particular nut.

Movin' on for now...
