How to root a FP3+ under LOS19

Hi, is there somewhere a guide explaining how to root a FP3+ under LOS19?

This guide gives explainations, but when it is to Download the official ROM, the link to the download page lands here where it is written, as Preliminary steps:

Download onto your computer (pay attention to Android version):

- Fairphone OS (Android 11) -

File name:
md5sum: 945896193a4e48e767e6d734dc861ccb
sha256sum: 7d9643a6b1fdedcc52b30f59634e75a3d5eb4389d297f530e318d0d87006f891

And LOS19 is Android 12.

I’ve been using this file and it put some mess on my FP3+ (see here).

I think the steps are the same as for the FP4 and you cannot use the stock boot img and you need to use the LOS boot.img

Ok, this assumes LOS19

Get the magisk app (e.g. F-Droid) and install it.
Get twrp on your computer, and download your LOS image
get a payload dumper (e.g. the go version called payload-dumper-go) to get the boot.img:
e.g.: payload-dumper-go -p boot
Put the boot.img on your phone:
adb push boot.img /storage/emulated/0/
On your phone, start the magisk app, in the first option, Magisk, choose install, chose the first option (install to a selected file) and select the previously uploaded boot.img
After magisk says ok, you’ll find the patched image in Download/magiskXXXX
Put this on your computer: adb pull /storage/emulated/0/Download/magis…

boot the phone to bootloader
Get a current version of twrp for the FP3
Boot twrp (temporarily): fastboot boot twrp*img (whatever twrp image you have now)
if twrp is loaded (keep system r/o!)
adb put magiskXXXX /cache/
adb shell
in the shell do
getprop|grep slot and check the active slot
then do a
dd if=/cache/magisXXXX of=/dev/block/by_name/boot_{your active slot}
Then reboot system

This should be it. Anybody else, who did this, please cross check whether I missed something

Hey, sounds great @lklaus and @yvmuell!
I’ll give it some attention as soon as I have enough time to, don’t want to mess with the phone once more… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
