Root procedure ?

Tue Nov 20, 2018 4:46 pm

Hello,

is there a chance we can get a clean root procedure for the bv6800 pro (i like my firewall) ?
Seems that's the only thing missing to this phone :)

Thank you.

regards,
S.

Hi there, root can't be officially supported for obivous reasons. I can't help you with that, but i'll keep this thread open so that users can help you and talk about it ;)

Thank you for your answer :)

Just to know, would it be thinkable to include in the ROM some build-in firewall (like afwall+) (within the system, with the good right, there's no need to get root), or is it forbidden by android license / impossible to make ?
That would be a huge commercial advantage for your phones.

Btw, i just got my 6800 pro, and for now i'm really happy about it !

Magisk is the best option imho. You just need to flash a boot image modified by Magisk Manager. No modification of the recovery or system partitions : easy OTA updates.

Short version :
  • Extract Boot Image with SP Flash Tool (version 5.1828 works fine)
  • Copy boot image to your BV6800 Pro.
  • In Magisk Manager, press Install > Install > Patch Boot Image File, and select your stock boot image file
  • Magisk Manager will now patch your boot image, and store it in [Internal Storage]/Download/patched_boot.img
  • Copy the patched boot image to your PC.
  • Flash the patched boot image with SP Flash Tool to your device and reboot. The phone will reboot twice, don't panic.
  • Enjoy root
I'll update this to a detailed version when I have time.

PS : I attached my constructed scatter file while waiting for the official one.

Yes. Just follow this procedure. Sorry I don't have time to write a super detailed one but you only need to search this forum for SP Flash Tool and how to use it (install drivers, extract boot, reflash boot).
