What More?

In my opinion, you don’t need rooting for your Motorola One Vision. If you thought you could Improve Performance By Root; With the Exynos 9609 Octa-Core processor and 4 GB RAM, your device can perform well. If you don’t know how much RAM you need, You will never use this much RAM. You should not Boot into Normal OS Booting, by pressing the power button, after firmware flash. It will boot you to a Non-Rooted environment. So, you should pay attention to the first recovery boot step.

If you root your device, because of the battery drain issues, you can optimize your battery without Root. Beyond this, if your purpose is to Disable Bloatware apps, you can do that without using this method. This method is based on TWRP custom recovery. Thus you can install Custom ROMs. When you have any suggestions or doubts, comment below.

  1. I can’t patch the vbmeta.img in magisk manager; it says unsupported/unknown image format, please help.

      • I have the same problem; I’m trying to patch a vbmeta.img from my OS version, which is android 10 on XT1970-2 (it is from México) I have followed all the instructions, please HELP!

          • Magisk doesn’t allow me to use previous versions of it, i’m getting the same error, unsupported/unknown image format for vbmeta.img.
            Is there another way of patching this file?
            I’ve tried using a pre-patched vbmeta.img I found on xda, and it got stuck on a boot loop.

          • Your current firmware version should be the same as Vbmeta. Use 7Zip to convert the .img again. Maybe the file format corrupted or something in your end.
