Here’s how to root Android 10 on your Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2XL, Pixel 3/3XL, Pixel 3a/3a XL, and should actually work on most Android devices.
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to root the Xiaomi Mi 9. We will be following the Xiaomi Bootloader Unlock Guide and original Xiaomi Universal Root Guide I wrote last year since the process is exactly the same. And this root method is also same on all Xiaomi smartphones so you can follow along even if you have another Xiaomi device, only thing different is the TWRP recovery you will be using for your specific model of Xiaomi Android smartphone.
For those of you who want to root the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, S10 Plus, or the A50, here’s a full step-by-step tutorial along with video tutorial so you can root it easily. Before beginning, this root method only works for Exynos models.
Google has launched a new way of updating Android OS(Operating System) starting in 2018 called, “Project Treble”. Although Google uses pure “100%” Android OS on their Nexus/Pixel devices such as the Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones, many manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, and others have added their own UI/skin on top. In extreme cases like Samsung, they have added S-Pen features to their Samsung Galaxy Note series and lots of new hardware features not found in the original Android OS. Due to this reason, whenever Google updates their OS from one iteration to another(such as Android 7.0 Nougat to 8.0 Oreo), manufacturers have to re-build the whole OS from ground up, causing months of delay in updates. For example, Android Oreo update for Galaxy S7 probably took around 8 months. This has been a troubling problem as Android OS updates once a year and by the time manufacturers update their software to the latest, they are already at least 6 months behind.Project Treble mean Faster OTA Updates!
For those of you who have a OnePlus One, Android 9.0 Pie is now available through a custom ROM called PSOP(Potato Open Sauce Project). Now, this ROM has pretty much everything working out of the box including voice calls, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, etc…etc… Developer says GPS is a bit wonky but seems to work fine for me after using the GPS Fix app on the Play Store. Battery life is excellent(as you will also be able to benefit from Android 9.0 30% improved battery) as the new Android P will prioritize apps and save battery by shutting down apps wasting battery life. Performance is also excellent with Antutu scores of 66,000. For right now, this seems like the best way to experience Android Pie 9.0 on your OnePlus One. I’ve also tested calls both on speakers and bluetooth with my car bluetooth and they seemed to work flawless. While many other Android devices have trouble with bluetooth, OnePlus One does well as it was designed to work well with AOSP(What is AOSP?).
Do you want to get stereo sound out of your OnePlus 6? Well, the dual speaker MOD is finally here for the OnePlus 6 as a Magisk module. Installing this MOD will give you full stereo sound by using your earpiece as additional speaker. This is 100% safe to do as we have dual speaker MOD on many other Android devices including most of previous OnePlus Android smartphones like OnePlus 5, 5T, 3, 3T and most of my Galaxy smartphones have dual speaker mod.
