How to Root Android 10 [Pixel/Pixel 2/Pixel 3/Pixel 3a]

So now that you have made your way here, I am assuming you are either a Pixel/Pixel 2/ Pixel 3/ Pixel 3a user and are an exited Android freak as well. Google recently launched its latest Android OS- Android 10 which is now available for all the Google Phones and some other devices as well. Rooting is something that requires some knowledge relating to the hardware of the device and other aspects as well. Moreover, Rooting a newly arrived OS is quite a difficult task. It is risky and it also requires some knowledge and it should be performed only on a device that is specific to that root method, in this case – running on Android 10.

Rooting basically means accessing all the admin level right of the device to yourself. This process ends up in enabling the users to use the device to its fullest. And that is why rooting is preferred by many. That is what we are going to cover today for the latest Android 10 OS. But before that, here is a disclaimer one needs to read before following the steps.

Root Android 10 OS

The Android 10 is quite different from the other Android versions as the user will have to patch their Kernel or boot the image. This can be achieved with the help of Magisk Canary. Given below is a step by step guide on how you can root the Android 10 OS using Magisk Canary. Here you go –

Step 1. To begin with the basics – Unlock the Bootloader of your device and install Android 10.

Step 2. Then Download Magisk Canary.

Step 3. Download the right firmware for your Pixel device. The users with a non-Pixel device will have to download the firmware as well and also extract the boot.img file.

Step 4. Then copy the boot.img file that you extracted from the firmware to the storage of your device.

Step 5. Go to the Magisk Manager App and select ‘Install’ option two times and then choose “Select and Patch a File”. Here, choose the boot.img file that you copied to the storage of your device in the previous step.

Step 6. Now copy the file magisk_patched.img to your PC.

Step 7. Download and then unzip it.

Step 8. Copy the magisk_patched.img to the fastboot folder.

Step 9. Now Open the Command Prompt for Windows and for Max or Linux OS, open the Terminal Emulator or Chromebook.

Step 10. Type the below commands as per your Operating System

for Windows –

cd Downloads
cd fastboot
fastboot flash boot magisk_patched.img
fastboot reboot

For Mac –

cd Downloads
cd fastboot
chmod 755 *
./fastboot-mac flash boot magisk_patched.img
./fastboot-mac reboot

For Linux –

cd Downloads
cd fastboot
chmod 755 *
sudo ./fastboot-linux flash boot magisk_patched.img
sudo ./fastboot-linux reboot

Step 11. Finally, your device will now reboot.

You have successfully rooted your Android 10 OS device i.e. Pixel phone.

  1. Hi, my case 1 is only for PC on Windows! All software in cases is freeware.

    1. Unlock bootloader use ZYKUFlasher 1.1 for PC
    2. Next you need use RootkhpPro 3.2 it’s universal one-click app for PC.
    3. Launch RootkhpPro and click root, you got two notifications and finally message if you success

    But for Android 10 Rootkhppro 3.2 is not always stable and sometimes you might got error on process, but it’s not dangerous.
