    817 views 2 weeks ago
    It's rootin' and tootin' time for the Pixel 4! This video will cover everything from FAQs, to actually rooting the phone and having the best settings after rooting.

    This video was aimed for beginners who want a slow video to guide them through the steps for unlocking the bootloader, using Magisk Manager to patch a stock boot.img to root, and to see what Magisk Manager can do for you.

    But if you already know a thing or two, just as you can normally, use Magisk Manager to patch the stock boot.img to root.

    Remember to backup and ask questions!

    ⚠ Your data will be wiped when you unlock the bootloader. NO ifs, NO buts.
