    I can't root this phone, because there is no factory image for "Taimen" QQ1A.200105.002 (January 2020). Installed android 10 a couple of weeks ago, but still waiting. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.:nailbitingdroid: Sorry, please disregard. Found it. The file that i found is an OTA file, not a Factory Image file, and is no good for rooting. Looks like i still need some help. Thanks

    The last thing you want to do is update you firmware when you are intending to root. Rooting is basicle a circumvention of the security of the OS. Updating it with tighten security and likely prevent you from you gaining roit access

    Android 10 has me going crazy. Trying to follow directions, but can't find a file named "boot.img". :thinking::oops:

    the guide i linked you to does not mention boot.img. one of his links does however. but if you read the op very carefully, he does mention....and i quote:
    edit: basically the root process goes:
    1. setup adb and fastboot
    2. unlock the bootloader
    3. install twrp
    4. install magisk
    5. yay you are rooted!!!!!!!!!
