Greeting Mi A1 fans...

What's new and how is going for the 2018? Wishing everyone a great year ahead and this is my first article for 2018. What is rooting? Rooting is the process of allowing the user to attain privileged control (known as root access) over various Android subsystems.

Good news is Mi A1 is getting an Android 8.0 upgrade, on the other hand most users will find the previous method of installing TWRP is no longer working on Android 8.0 ROM. No worries, for those still insisting on Rooting their devices, here is the old-school method of getting Root Permission, while stay tuned for installing TWRP on my next series.

Let's get going. Read this Guide a couple of times and get a grasp of it, and if you still feel doubtful or find it too difficult, its just not meant for you, as this is meant for an advanced user to fully comprehend the rational of the method.

Requirements:
  • 1. Download Minimal ADB and Fastboot v1.4.2 and install it on your PC/Laptop, preferably on C\:Drive and choose system-wide installation.
  • 2. Download Magisk Manager v5.5.5 and moved it to your "Download" root directory on your phone for easy access. Install the APK and click Settings when the popped-up balloon appears, and click "OK" to Enable the Unknown sources, and press back to the "Download" folder and click Magisk Manager and click Install.
  • 3. A boot.img from your current ROM Build folder, and moved it to your "Download" root directory on your phone for easy access.


Essentials:
  • 1. Updated to Oreo Android Version
  • 2. Bootloader Unlocked
  • 3. USB DATA cable (the one that came with your device)
  • 4. Before proceeding: Disable Driver Signature Enforcement in Windows 7/8/10 64-Bit
  • 4. Enable USB Debugging - Goto Developer options > USB Debugging - Enable (If you have not activated Developer options, then Goto Settings > About phone > tap Build number 3 times > You are now a developer)
  • 5. Enable OEM unlocking - Goto Developer options > OEM unlocking - Enable
  • 6. Battery is charged at least 50%.



Methods:
  • 1. Launch Magisk Manager app.
  • Then tap "Install" choose Install, then choose "Patch Boot Image File"
  • It will then create the Patched Boot Image in the Magisk Manager folder and copy it to your PC/Laptop.
  • Switch Off your Mi A1.
  • Connect your USB cable to the PC/Laptop.
  • Goto the location where you copied the "Patched Boot Image".
  • Within the folder press the Shift+Right click your mouse, and select "Open command window here"
  • Enter the following commands to enter fastboot mode, as follows:-
    1. adb reboot bootloader
    Copy the Code
  • Or you can alternatively, Press Power & Volume Down to enter Fastboot Mode.
  • To check that your device is connected and detected, enter the following command:-
    1. fastboot devices
    Copy the Code
  • Enter the following command of your current partition:-
    1. fastboot getvar current-slot
    Copy the Code
  • Check the active slot and enter the following command accordingly as "a" or "b":-
    1. fastboot flash boot_a patched_boot.img
    Copy the Code
    Or
    1. fastboot flash boot_b patched_boot.img
    Copy the Code
  • Then to reboot, type the following:-
    1. fastboot reboot
    Copy the Code
  • Your device will boot-up in a few minute, then re-install the Magisk Manager apk again and you will attain the Root permission with the patched boot image.
  • Enjoy, now your device is rooted.
