UleFone Armor 9 (Android 10) MAGISK ROOT GUIDE - Linas Pečkys - 20-09-2020

Hi,

This is very short info and mostly useful for those who already tried to root something before.
I used:
SP Flash Tool
Magisk Manager
Hovatek Support (So You won't need).

And just in case if You stuck on bootloop: Firmware: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1JQZBOdlarZPbP_NLojYf1ZJQCW7uxROx

---IN SIMPLE WORDS--

1.Unlock Your bootloader

2.DOWNLOAD:
boot.img (patched with magisk): https://mega.nz/file/nwthwbAJ#0B2Ngpzye6RrnNaUGmTkrxfl5yMf6WmXoEE4d5YS8TQ
vbmeta.img (by Hovatek): https://mega.nz/file/LxtHkDRY#sU8xffFqquAlCUq4zIW9XcSvu-2qTc7t8PuJ0FW0WLM

3.USE SP Flash Tool to flash vbmeta.img ONLY TO "VBMETA" PARTITION. REBOOT.

4.Do the same with vbmeta.img. REBOOT.

INSTALL MAGISK MANAGER APP.

GOOD LUCK.


P.S., I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING BAD HAPPENS. IF YOU STUCK COMPLETELY - USE HOVATEK SUPPORT (ADVICE - PAID). THESE GUYS ARE AWESOME.

can you include the build number of the phone at the time of patching boot?
so whoever is download will be sure to check if build matches before downloading

also step 4, i think you meant boot.img not vbmeta a second time

parameters? what do you mean by that?

Why not try patching boot.img for your own build number in magisk then flashing that instead

I'm using the latest upgrade build Armor 9 TF1 EEA V01 20200918-1720 and file name 2020091817_s95v79c2k_gq_p_eea official

I did also the upgrade with fastboot command:
fastboot flashing unlock
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot boot boot.img
and reboot but same results

When I speak about parameters, it is the settings

So I got the boot.img from my own firmware, I modify it with Magisk and got a new one (patched)
What is amazing is the differents sizes between mine ( original 32 kb) and the one posted here ( about 10kb)
The one I patched has the same size as the original ( 32kb)


Where does come the VBMETA.img ? how do you create it ?
Is there a TWRP compatible with armor 9 ? if yes where can I download it ?
I need to use my phone right now but will do the test this week
anyway thanks for your help
Best Regards

the vbmeta posted here is an empty vbmeta for disabling dm_verity
you're to flash it before flashing your patched boot

ATM, none available for android 10

Hello
Finally it works !!!
I used magisk manager apk V 8.0.7 ( no TWRP) to generate patched boot.img from stock rom
Firmware of armor 9 is Armor 9 TF1 EEA V01 20200918-1720

fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
reboot


Thanks again for your help
