How to Root Vivo X50/Pro/Plus via Magisk Patched Boot.img | Best Method


In this guide, we will show you the steps to root Vivo X50/Pro/Plus via Magisk Patched Boot.img. Vivo devices have never been an active participant in custom development, and it’s not something they even relate to. While it makes sense for tech enthusiasts to cater to a larger audience as opposed to a niche segment, the best they could do is not to create a barrier for us, the tech geeks.

But while this is not the case, there is no reason to worry as the developers have done a great job in bypassing the major limitation of unlocking the bootloader. Now that that’s achieved, we can turn our attention to the ability to gain administrative privileges by rooting the X50/Pro/Plus via Magisk Patched Boot.img. So without further ado, let’s begin.

Benefits and Risks of Rooting

Once you’ve rooted your device by flashing the Magisk patched boot.img via fastboot commands, you’ll be in a position to try out a host of customizations on your device. These include flashing custom ROMs, installing a custom recovery like TWRP, or flashing a custom kernel. Along the same lines, you can also flash Magisk Modules, Xposed Framework, Substratum Themes, Viper4Android and the likes. However, this is only one side of the story.

There are also downsides to performing this process. First, the process requires an unlocked bootloader. Doing so will erase all data and may void the device’s warranty. Likewise, WideVine L1 will be downgraded to L3, resulting in the inability to stream Netflix in HD [FIXED]. Then SafetyNet will be triggered [FIXED], which can cause problems in banking apps [FIXED]. So if that’s all well and good, let’s start with the steps to root Vivo X50/Pro/Plus via Magisk.
