    I need to add a root certificate to Android systems. I hope to achieve this by copying the appropriate file the following path: /system/etc/security/cacerts, or using a flashable zip.

    Due to the fact that applications from Android version 7 and upwards no longer trust user-added CAs by default, I will need to do this to many tens of devices from multiple vendors.

    Possible methods:
    1. Rooting the devices
    2. Via a custom recovery

    Drawbacks:

    Rooting:
    • I will need to separately find a method of rooting each device. There is no generic rooting method that will work for all devices.

    Custom recovery:
    • I will need to obtain multiple customized TWRP (or other) recovery images, one for each device model.
    • Not all devices have custom recovery images available.

    Is there an easier and more generic method to achieve my goal?
