Ok How do I get this installed on my YotaPhone 3+ 64 Gb?
Please give me some instructions, I have updated from the YotaPhone 3 Chinees to the YotaPhone 3+ but after this update the IMEI's are empty and I need to add them it looks now I need to root to be able to add the IMEI from the box it came with.
If you have a tool to re-enter the IMEI without rooting is the best, but it look the only way to do this is to root the YotaPhone 3+

Yota 3+ Root

Instruction 1: Magisk system-less root (ref: https://www.xda-developers.com/what-is-magisk/), which is less invasive as it doesn't have to remove user data, but more fragile if something goes wrong on your system (e.g you will attempt to modify your storage outside of booted OS), you will have to fully re-install your OS. But is less detectable by apps and playstore that your device is rooted, which is good.

Instruction 2: Full root which includes TWRP, Magisk and disabled storage encryption, meaning you can freely modify your storage outside of booted OS and if something goes wrong your will be able to boot into TWRP and potentially fix the issues / make or restore backups . But this method has to remove and fully re-install your system to work.

Note: leaving your device unencrypted is not secure as if your device is lost then your personal data can be retrieved from it. Hence, once you've done installation of all rooted apps and ensured that everything is working fine in long term (e.g couple of days) it is recommended to do following:
- Encrypt your device (Settings > Security & location > Encryption & credentials > Encrypt phone)
- Lock boootloader (Settings > System > Developer options > OEM unlocking > OFF)
This will make your device secure again, but note that you will not be able to modify / access user data from TWRP anymore. Moreover, you won't be able to successfully modify system partitions unless you re-apply Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt_12.16.2018.zip (https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/universal-dm-verity-forceencrypt-t3817389)

Instruction 1 - System-less root method
Note: this is a system-less root method, meaning that if you attempt to modify your system partition from custom recovery, then it will fail to boot again!
Pre-reqs (important!):

Congratulations, your device is now rooted!

Instruction 2 - Yota 3+ 8.1 System Root with TWRP recovery, Magisk and storage encryption disabled

I've managed to create a TWRP specific for Y3+ and wrote .bat script which automatically re-installs OS 8.1 with latest ota 54 update, magisk and root and disables storage encryption.

Pre-recs (Important!):
  • Your phone is charged to at least 50%
  • adb, fastboot installed on your pc and accessible through home path system environment variable
  • adb debugging enabled
  • Developer options > OEM unlocking > ON
  • backup all your personal data

Steps:
  • Download: mega.nz/#F!yMBGBYIY!24gGnv0DXNhqBvE7IbrEmA
  • Double click on install.bat
  • Follow on-screen instructions
  • Important! As soon as you are on home screen browse your e-ink screen at least once, otherwise the OS might crash after ~ 5-10 minutes due to inability to properly access its launcher. Once done, Reboot your device.

Hi I have tried all but it is not clear to me I'm not able to root the YotaPhone 3+.
If it possible to give me a more clear instruction step by step. Also how to test if it is rooted?
It was a YotaPhone 3 and I updated it successful to the YotaPhone 3+ only I lost the IMEI 1 and 2. To add them I need to rood the Phone to add the EMEI or is there a option to add them NOT rooted.
Please help!!

All nice but if I do so on point 7. and it reboot it ask me for a pincode.
What is the pincode? or code I have to enter?

Before attempting to root the device I already had fingerprint / pin setup, hence just simply needed to re-enter the pin in that case. But, I was not sure if it is a must. Unfortunately, to fix it you will need to reset your os, using same steps as in https://forum.xda-developers.com/yotaphone-3/development/yota-3-firmware-news-t3862999. Then ensure your device has pin installed, and then re-try rooting steps. I've updated my post with pin pre-req step.

To determine if you're device is rooted you will see in Magisk app two green tickboxes (Latest Version: v18.0; Installed Version: v18.0) even after you reboot your device.
Please specify what steps you're unclear about, but before doing that please read through comments in: https://forum.xda-developers.com/yotaphone-3/development/yota-3-firmware-news-t3862999 or google the step you're unclear about (especially pre-req ones)

Yota 3+ Stock Recovery access

1. On the phone off, press and hold the "Volume up" and "Power" keys
2. A robot will be lying with an open belly and an error on the lack of a command.
3. Lock the "Volume Down" and "Power" buttons, briefly pressing the "Volume Up" button

I've tried the latest instruction; failed in cmd as following :
"Ensuring the bootloader is unlocked..."
...
FAILED (remote: Need wipe userdata. Do 'fastboot oem unlock-go')

Anyone?

Can you check if in developer options OEM unlocking is ON (as in first instruction > pre-recs > step 4).

Yes, it's on.
So technically I don't have to unlock bootloader first right?:)

If it was ON, the expected message in script should've been "Already unlocked" instead of message you've seen ("Need wipe userdata. Do 'fastboot oem unlock-go"). Maybe because in my case I had already unencrypted userdata at point of re-testing the script, it was working for me. Hence, I will fix the script by replacing "fastboot flashing unlock" to "fastboot oem unlock-go" to see if it fixes the issue for you.

Before you did the instruction 1 attempt, one of pre-recs was that your device had already pin setup (Settings > Security > Screen lock > PIN), did you have it? As the only use case I am aware of this situation is if you didn't have pin setup before. It would still ask you for pin, but it does't exist, hence wrong.

    Yes, it's on.
    So technically I don't have to unlock bootloader first right?:)

    If it was ON, the expected message in script should've been "Already unlocked" instead of message you've seen ("Need wipe userdata. Do 'fastboot oem unlock-go"). Maybe because in my case I had already unencrypted userdata at point of re-testing the script, it was working for me. Hence, I will fix the script by replacing "fastboot flashing unlock" to "fastboot oem unlock-go" to see if it fixes the issue for you.

    I've updated the script, please re-download install.bat
