Rooting the Note Air 3

Currently obtaining a boot image for the Note Air 3 is not a straightforward matter. There is no update.upx file from which you can extract the boot image, and the Qualcomm sdm662 edl loader would not work for me. Edited March 28, 2024: There is now an update file containing boot.img. The URL for the file is in this post. https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...12&postcount=3

Fortunately, Renate provided a loader (lenovo_motorola/001b80e102e80000_8b2d1c830d9d8576_fhprg_moto_g52.b in) in post 10 of this thread that worked.

There are many threads in this forum with excellent, detailed instructions for rooting, so I will not provide detailed instructions here. These are the two threads I used:

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=349397 Linux users see post 33 in this thread.

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=357269

Thanks to Renate for all the help she provided with the edl loader issue, and thanks to the creators of those threads.

I found a shortcut for turning on wireless adb without using a app.

1. Open Developer Options.
2. Go to "Quick settings developer tiles" just above "USB debugging".
3. Enable "Wireless debugging".
4. Open the Control Center by swiping down from the top right corner.
5. Wireless debugging should be the first icon. Tap it and answer the popup that appears.
6. Open the Control Center again, and long press "Wireless debugging". The IP/port will be displayed. The port is random every time wireless debugging is started for security.
7. For security, turn off wireless debugging when done.

The 3.5.3 update cripples fastboot by removing the boot, flash, and erase commands. This means you can no longer test or install magisk_patched.img with fastboot. You should be able to install it with edl.

Well, erasing is practically never useful.
Try a (non-functioning) flash.
Code:
fastboot flash fishheads file.txt
