If you're just rooting, then yes; but if you use a different image, then certainly not.

Ok, thank you for answer. Then, I will educate myself a bit more on rooting and decide if I do it to my Max3. Thanks!

the Magisk module Show_navigation_bar is now causing bug on version 2020-11-04_07-07_3.0_9aed398. Whenever I touch the navbar buttons, SystemUI crashes. Be aware if you want to upgrade to 2020-11-04_07-07_3.0_9aed398.

Hi all,

I developed a Xposed module to fix the crash on touching navbar buttons. As time goes and more upgrades potentially break more things I plan to add more fixes and more features to this module.

Now (I'm not sure whether it's BOOX upgrade or Magisk upgrade that caused it), directly installing Magisk in Magisk Manager won't make Magisk last permanently.

Though the original post says Magisk should be installed to recovery partition as per Magisk installation instruction because "Our device uses 'system as root'", I found that we can actually patch the boot image and make it work. Just patch the boot.img extracted from update.zip, boot from it under fastboot, and it should work. If you want permant installation, flash it to boot partition under bootloader.

Are the steps similar for rooting the Note 3? I assume i need to source a recovery img somewhere?

You put the update for Note 3 in the same directory as the program and run the command

"python DeBooxUpdate.py Note3"

Of course you need python installed and additionally Cryptodome library.
Then you simply use magisk to patch the boot image extracted from the decrypted update package
