Infinix devices have really picked up speed over the last few years, with both the Note and Hot series performing quite well in the budget domain. Offering all the desired feature sets from the public at affordable prices, its popularity has always been on the cards. If we talk about the Note lineup, there are some decent devices in its arsenal. Not just for the general audience but also for the technical fans.
As you unlock the device’s bootloader, you’ll be in a position to try many modes and tweaks. These include custom ROM flashing, installing custom recovery like TWRP, accessing system partitions, or flashing Magisk Modules and Xposed / LSposed frameworks. But before you can try any of these requirements, you need to root your Infinix Note 12 via Magisk Patched boot.img. And in this guide, we’ll show you how to do it. Follow along.
Advantages and risks of rooting
Once you’ve rooted your device by flashing the Magisk patched boot.img via the Fastboot commands, you’ll be in a position to test a number of customizations on your device. These include flashing custom ROMs, installing custom recovery like TWRP, or flashing custom kernels. With these posts, you can also flash Magisk Modules, Xposed Framework, Substratum Themes, Viper4Android and Likes. However, this is only one side of the story.
There are also downsides to doing this. First of all, this process requires an unlocked bootloader. Doing so will erase all data and may also void the device’s warranty. Similarly, WideVine L1 will be downgraded to L3, leaving Netflix unable to stream in HD [FIXED]. SafetyNet will then be activated, which can cause problems with banking apps [FIXED]. So if that’s all right and good, let’s start with the steps to uproot the Infinix Note 12 via Magisk.
