In this guide, we will show you the steps to root your Vivo iQOO Neo 6 via Magisk Patched Boot.img. This device from the Chinese OEM has been quite popular among the common users. A power-packed offering that checks most conditions but without burning a hole in your pockets, a rise in popularity was already on the cards.

But the developers took matters into their own hands and managed to find a nifty solution through which you can easily unlock the bootloader. Once this is done, the next and most preferred method for a tech enthusiast is to root Vivo iQOO Neo 6 via Magisk Patched Boot.img to gain administrative access. And in this guide, we’ll show you how to do just that. So without further ado, let’s begin.
