+1. I can try to use a Windows VM. 
If you could post a little bullet pointed list of steps, I would be most grateful. And instead of paying a OneClick root, you'd want to assist via VNC, I'd be happy to compensate you for the time. I'm not a big fan of Windows, and specially not with the built-in screen reader for the blind.

Length: 0x1000000
Click Ok
Shutdown your phone
Click on Read Back
Plug in your phone
Boot.img is extracted

Flash boot image
In the Download tab chose the scatter file (see my first post)
Make sure Download Only is selected in the dropdown list
Unckeck all entry but boot.
Click in the Location column of the boot entry
Choose the pached boot.img and click open

Wait for the green check.
Done.

This is a simplified tutorial. There are plenty of guides, tutorials and videos all over the internet about this. If something don't work, use those guides.
This is ONLY for the BV6800 Pro. Remember you do this at your own risk, save your data before !

Sams, thanks for tutorializing. Hard to follow from Mac.

In order to setup Magisk and backup the boot image from mac (ADB), I had to unlock the boot loader.
However, it looks like there is no TWRP recovery IMG for Blackview, and I don't want to flash anything onto my phone.
So, I'm stuck and cannot extract my boot.img for patching.

In other words, the boot partition is on /dev/block/mmcblk0p20, but I don't have read permissions.

My build is [color=#000000][size=85][font=Helvetica]BV6800Pro_Blackview-V1.4_20180920_20181130-1918[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#000000][size=85][font=Helvetica]Can somebody clearly answer, once and for all, where to download the official roms for that particular build? If I cannot extract my own boot image, I'd like to at least use the official one instead.[/size][/font][/color]

That's the second thing I did when I received it, just after extracting the full stock ROM.

Ekavun, you don't need to unlock the bootloader and you don't need TWRP.
You only need to use flash tool to extract and flash back your boot partition. You can't use adb to do that.
I asked blackview 4 months ago to publish the stock ROM. They never did.
I extracted the stock ROM myself and saved all update.zip as they came.
I can provide the original boot image for your ROM version (or even the Magisk patched one if you want), but you will still need to flash back the patched image with flash tool.

Did you patched the boot image successfully with Magisk Manager before flashing it back ?
