    Hello,

    I have the latest weekly release and I can't get to root it. So far I tried with two versions: SR3-SuperSU-v2.79-SR3-20170114223742.zip

    And SuperSU-v2.79-201612051815.zip

    Both of those versions (the 1st one being the latest) break my boot image (I guess) as the phone won't start and stay in fastboot mode.

    How I install :

    I open the zip in twrp and wipe cache after installing. I also tried without wiping and still no chance.

    What should I do? What do I do wrong?

    Thx

    I had the same issue trying to root with Magisk v12 but finally got it to work following this post on XDA: forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=72150023&postcount=10
    Using older versions of Magisk root worked on last Xiaomi.eu weekly.

    After the first boot you can download Magisk Manager from the Play Store and install Magisk v12 from the app. This way the boot partition is detected properly and installs fine.

    And then after weekly update, should I install Magisk v12 or should I root again with the v9?
