Who doesn’t want to get the most of his Android device..?! Getting the superuser access through the root and to be able to control various aspects like clock, access to cache etc. are few of the various possibilities that we can explore. When we mention root access, this means we need to perform a certain modification that will root our phone and we will have access to the root directory of our device. In this post, we will show you how to root Infinix Hot 9 X680.

The Infinix Hot 9 features a 6.6 inches IPS LCD display with an HD+ resolution. This results in a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. It has an aspect ratio of 20:9, a pixel density of 266 Pixel Per Inch, a screen to body ratio of 82.8 percent, and as every screen does it can produce 16M colors.

Coming to the internals, the Infinix Hot 9 sports the MediaTek Helio A25 SoC. This is the one that we haven’t seen on many smartphones out there. The Helio A25 is built on the 12nm process and has an octa-core setup which includes four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and the other four clocked at 1.5GHz. To the GPU side, this SoC pairs with the PowerVR GE8320. The device runs on its own XOS 6.0 that is based on Android 10. Talking about the memory options available. It is available in 2, 3, and 4GB of RAM versions. And in 32, 64, 128GB of eMMC 5.1 internal storage.

 

We will use the Magisk by patching the stock boot image and flash that to your boot partition. All you need to do is download the patched image file from Magisk Manager and flash it.

Mostly uninitiated people compare rooting with hacking which is not correct. The purpose in both contexts is quite different.
