Thanks. I will use the downgrader to return to earlier firmware and security patch and then try again to unlock and root with Magisk Canary. I need to enable VoLTE because my carrier won't provision it for Vivo products.
Vivo downgrader recognizes that the Vivo X Note but says "no downgrade images available yet".
I should have jumped on the unlocking tips provided on this forum several weeks ago, but didn't get around to it before the June Android Security update pathed the exploit. Now, in order to unlock the bootloader so that I can root with Magisk and enable VoLTE I have to downgrade to an earlier firmware and then unlock, etc. I haven't found time to do that yet, but we aren't yet at the crises point of our American neighbours who have shut down their 3G networks meaning no voice calls there on these phones without VoLTE. Interestingly T-Mobile does provision VoLTE for these Vivo phones, so some Americans will be OK. We are still two years away from shutting down 3G in Canada so while voice calls drop to 3G without VoLTE we can still place voice calls. I have a Google Voice number as well, so I can place voice calls with Google Voice over 4G or 5G while roaming in the US. It would be much easier for us if the four Canadian carriers followed T-Mobile's example.
Under "Set Preferred Network Type" your setting GSM/WCDMA/LTE means your phone will connect first on an old 2G network, then if one isn't available it will connect on an old 3g network, and only if those aren't available it will connect on 4G (LTE). That setting also tells your phone not to connect on 5G. There are very few Rogers 2G towers left, so I'm guessing you are connecting on 3G for data and thus your slow download speed. You want to connect on 4G or 5G, so change the preferred network type to NR/LTE/GSM/WCDMA. That way it will connect first to 5G, then to 4G if 5G is unavailable.For me it sucks when I'm on WhatsApp video call and need to send an attachment via MMS or download something it's soooooo slow. Didn't know about the 2yrs before 3G disposal, good to know. I have the 2022-04-01 security update so will be trying the VoLTE switch for my x70 Pro Plus.
I am not sure if it's my ISP or Vivo but my download bandwith is limited to 30000kbs do you think that can be adjusted once my phone is unlocked?

Ah i see, thank you for confirmation
can you boot in fastboot? what did you do beside unlocking?This method seems to brick my device
I successfully unlocked my bootloader, the orange warning poped up. ( the same as shown at the top of this thread )
But I am not able to boot into the system or recovery. No prompt for erasing all the data appears either. I am stuck here.
Hi, I assume you have X80 Pro CN version. If yes did you try to install FunTouch OS? Regards'
As a safer alternative, don't flash, temporarily boot it with DSU Sideloader. That keeps the entire stock OS intact, both for complete dumping and for using after you're done with it.
How about if we root the phone first by magisk and editing the buildprop and change it value with vivo x70+ india version? Then we try to flash the funtouchOS. But first need someone with the files.Im not a developer either so this is as far as I can go sadly. I tried flashing all img's from the FunTouch update to their corresponding partitions but the phone boots into a blackscreen and then bootlop.
The recovery is english though. It lets me install CN Firmware update in recovery but not the FunTouch update. So the check is deeper than that.
Easily flashed back my chinese firmware and it is working - there has to be a way somehow.
Also NOTE: The bootloader unlock will probably get fixed in a future update so I would NOT update unless we dont figure anything out in the next few months.
