Rooting Xiaomi devices and keeping the feature of obtaining air updates

First, what is root?

Android rooting refers to the process of obtaining superuser access or administrative privileges on an Android device. This allows users to access and modify system files and settings that are normally not accessible to normal users. Rooting an Android device is similar to jailbreaking an iOS device.

Rooting an Android device involves exploiting vulnerabilities in the Android operating system to gain elevated privileges. Once root access is obtained, users can install custom ROMs, remove pre-installed bloatware, access and modify system files, and perform other advanced tasks not possible with a non-rooted device.

An Android device can be manually rooted by following the instructions for the device and Android version used. However, it is important to note that rooting can also void a device’s warranty, and it can also lead to security risks if not done properly or if the user installs malware or modifies critical system files.

All in all, rooting an Android device can provide many benefits to advanced users who want to customize their device and take advantage of features that are usually not available to ordinary users. However, it is important to weigh the risks and benefits before deciding to root your Android device.

Are we done what happened? what happened is:

After you have completed the steps up to step number 14, the phone has been booted into a modified recovery mode. But without installing this Recovery. That is, you can consider that the Recovery that will work in the meantime is a temporary file that disappears as soon as you restart.
Through that temporary file, you can modify the system and install the so-called Magisk. Which gives you root powers by itself.
After installation, you can make a Restart, which in turn will delete the temporary file, which is the modified Recovery. And then return the basic Recovery to the official company. But you have already installed Magisk within the system and it will not disappear and you can use it freely. When an update is released for the phone, you can download and install it without problems. As the device will read the existence of the company’s official recovery platform, allowing the installation file to be decrypted and then installed. Thus, the difficult equation was solved. Root with official phone updates.
