    I have a Vivo V5 1601 and it's android 6.0 sir... No system updates anymore so I want to root it no matter what.. I'll face whatever the consequences are and fix it on my own.. I'm a good researcher that brings me here.. Been researching how to root my phone for 3 days now..

    I created a new thread for your discussion. Root processes tend to be very device specific, so be diligent. Good luck!! :)

    why do you want to root the device? there is no custom recovery and there are no custom roms? basically there is no development community to support the phone.

    just remember no devs=no fun

    never root a phone unless there is at the very least a custom recovery for the phone. a custom recovery like TWRP, allows you to do many things. the main thing that a custom recovery can do is make a nandroid backup. they are complete backups of your phone.....so if you flash the wrong thing or some how you screwed up.....as long as you have a custom recovery, you can just nandroid restore your backup and you have a working phone.

    without a custom recovery, you will be taking a huge risk with your phone. you can easily brick it, if you are not very careful on what you do, once the phone is rooted.

    so for me no custom recovery=no root

    if you feel like it you can learn how to port twrp to your device:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/dev-how-to-compile-twrp-touch-recovery.1943625/#post-32965365

    and the basic steps to root is to:
    1. unlock the bootloader
    2. gain root by either the use of SuperUser or SU....looks like it will be hard to find a link for SU as it is old tech
    3. or gain root by Magisk
    now you are rooted.
