In this guide, we will show you the steps to root Vivo X60/Pro/Plus via Magisk Patched Boot.img. When we talk about custom development, Vivo might not be the first name that comes to your mind. And OEM plays an important role in this. While we understand that no company is deeply involved in the niche segment of users who are into mods and tweaks, most OEMs aren’t restricted either. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for this Chinese OEM.

This has put some unwanted hurdles in the process of unlocking the bootloader to prevent enthusiasts from making any modifications to their device. But thanks to some amazing work by the developers, the process of unlocking the bootloader is now complete. So what’s next? Well, now it’s time to root your Vivo X60/Pro/Plus via Magisk to gain administrative access. So without further ado, let’s check how it can be done.

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 X60/Pro/Plus via Magisk.
