My Experience rooting the T-Mobile Revvl 6 5G
The T-Mobile Revvl 6 5G is a Mediatek MT6833 Dimensity 700-powered smartphone with an Android 12 Operating System. The client’s goal was to root; unlocking the bootloader first and then rooting.
Unlocking the Bootloader
Just to test, I tried unlocking the bootloader using fastboot but none of the commands worked. I had to turn to bootloader unlocking using MTK Client.
Entering BROM Mode
To use MTK Client, you need to get this model into BROM. To force the T-Mobile Revvl 6 5G into BROM mode, you power off, hold the volume decrease button then connect to the PC.
Once Bootloader is unlocked, your screen will show a warning on every boot;
Your device is corrupt.dm-verity
It can’t be trusted and may not work properly.
Press power button to continue.
Or device will power off in 5s
This is normal and your device should boot up fine once you press the power button. If you’re stuck in a boot loop then you must have forgotten to wipe user data after unlocking the bootloader so run this command in the MTK client command line:
py -3 mtk e metadata,userdata
The plan was to root using magisk manager so the boot.img needed to be extracted from the phone. I chose to extract only the boot.img. The command was:
py -3 mtk r boot_a boot
If you wish to backup other partitions then here’s a list of partitions for this model

Armed with the boot file, I renamed it to boot.img, then the client patched it using the latest version of Magisk Manager (as at this post) and copied it back to the PC.
Rooting the T-Mobile Revvl 6 5G
Rooting models -like this- which have fastbootD is done by flashing the magisk-patched boot in fastbootD instead of fastboot. You need to have set up adb and fastboot already.
To get into fastbootD from adb, you run the following commands:
adb devices adb reboot-bootloader fastboot devices fastboot reboot fastboot
Wait till the device enters fastbootD. Assuming the magisk-patched boot is named magiskboot.img, your flashing command would look like this:
fastboot flash boot magiskboot.img fastboot reboot
Check for root in Magisk Manager once the device boots to the home screen.

Why does it seem everyone is avoiding porting twrp to this device? I’m beginning to think there is a bottleneck on how much info is given. Wouldn’t make money if all the info was given. Or you guys cannot deal with the security. Either way I sense this phone being neglected on purpose
Pls … help me with the file of infinix x690b
The files of My phone’s model isn’t among the ones listed here—–>>>
So I downloaded 2 stock rom zip files of this device from different sources, but it doesn’t contain these files.. and the baseband wasn’t fixed.
The files were only able to fix the constant nvram wifi notification error.
The phone’s build number is X690B-H691DE-Q-GL-220215V356
I’m hoping that if I can flash the phone with the complete files, (using mtk client) I’ll fix the baseband unknown issues, and then proceed to writing imei.
Pls shelp me with the files.. Thank you
