Lenovo Yoga Book Android - Breaking Super User

I have found that when using Linux Deploy to install a Linux distro, the install process stops after breaking super user, the scripts cannot continue as root privilege is no longer in place.

After booting into TWRP and flashing the Super User Update file from ChainFire, I soft bricked the elegantly designed Lenovo Yoga Book. Yay! Now I need to go back and revisit my earlier post on how to Root the Yoga Book.

New approach to rooting after enabling developer options and yada yada yada...

  • Download Magisk 17.1
  • adb reboot-bootloader
  • adb push Magisk-v17.1.zip /tmp
  • fastboot boot recovery_twrp.img
  • From TWRP menu-Install|flash /tmp/Magist-v17.1.zip
  • Reboot
  • Download and install the recommended super user APK from here.
