Smile Let's root our Max Lumi v3.1

Disclaimer:
** I am not responsible for any damage to your device. Please take care of your actions. Flashing not suitable images to partitions can brick your device. **

Edit 2021/03/18: I have added Magisk boot image for Max Lumi v. 3.1. Updating a rooted Max Lumi over the air is working. After installing a (full) firmware update you have to flash the patched boot image again.

Steps to install:
[1] Current firmware version of Max Lumi is 3.1. Attached bootimage is not suitable for other Boox devices!
[2] Download and install Magisk Manager on Max Lumi. Edit: current name is Magisk.
[3] Do you have installed adb, fastboot and USB drivers on your computer? 15 seconds ADB installer for Windows.
[4] Enable usb debugging on your Max Lumi. See Settings/Applications. Plug Max Lumi into your computer, accept fingerprint message and run in command line to check connection.
Code:
adb devices
[5] start a bootloader session
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Your Max Lumi will reboot and you will see the Onyx logo on screen. That's normal.
[5] The bootloader of Max Lumi is unlocked by default. That's nice. Thanks Onyx. You can check it with:
Code:
fastboot flashing unlock
[6] flash patched bootimage
Code:
fastboot flash boot your_patched_boot.img
Then your Max Lumi reboots by itself. Otherwise type:
Code:
fastboot reboot
[7] Start Magisk Manager and you use "direct install" method to root permanently.

Sample terminal session:
Code:
C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>adb devices
List of devices attached
e3b2a8ed        device


C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>adb reboot bootloader

C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>fastboot flashing unlock
...
FAILED (remote:         Device already : unlocked!)
finished. total time: 0.004s

C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>fastboot boot Max_Lumi_v3.0.Magisk.21.2.boot.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  0.276s]
booting...
OKAY [  0.002s]
finished. total time: 0.301s

C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>
Further reading:
It's a non standard installation of Magisk, because Max Lumi has a bootimage without ramdisk but loads this ramdisk when it is patched to bootimage.
decrypt Boox Update Upx, to get a bootimage of encrypted firmware update.
Max 3 Rooted by diabl0w.

Booting into recovery mode: (just in case you need it)
[1] With pressed home button connect your turned off Max Lumi with USB C to a charger.
[2] You get the Onyx splash boot screen.
[3] Release the home button.
[4] LED next to power button is blue. Recovery mode starts.
[5] Select option in recovery mode with home button. Execute option with power button.

The Onyx logo is ok. That IS Bootloader mode. I will update the first post of this thread for providing clarification.

Do you get any fastboot error messages? Then post them please.
Do others fastboot commands work?
Code:
fastboot help
Code:
fastboot reboot

It could be a missing driver problem. Adb device driver is installed, but for fastboot not. The driver changes in fastboot mode.

According Google some fastboot versions seem not to work with specific devices.

On Windows I have used 15 seconds ADB installer to install ADB, fastboot and generic USB driver. Version 1.4.3 should be installed on my system.

New name of app Magisk Manager is Magisk. Updating to v22.0 of app and boot image directly on Max Lumi was no problem.
Before updating you have to unhide the Magisk Manager app, when you had changed its name.

Hello, it's possible to change the splashcreen Kernel, "Onyx" when the boox start, when the boox is root.

fastboot flash splash splash.img
I didn't have a look at the splash partition.

Here you can edit the boot animation, which comes after the Onyx logo.
Code:
/system/media/bootanimation.zip

Installing over the air a small not full update (size << 1GB) stops when you try it on a rooted device. Installation routine does a checksum test of boot image which fails of course.
You have to flash the original boot image before installing this update.
I will update the first post later.
