Everything seems fine except if i make a wipe of dalvik cache every app stop working. The only solution is to wipe data or flash rom again with flashtool.
Is it normal?
Not sure if you talk about Twrp or stock recovery wipe. Even not 100% on it if you use magisk or supersu.
Thinking if you wipe it's normal you have to restore apps & settings. Backups can be helpful. Usually full twrp backup is used instead of fully flashing firmware. So if you flash whole stock you have to flash recovery or boot image again.
Little sidenote on both android 6 twrp backup: If screen turns of twrp freeze so set twrp timer to not turn of screen.
Guys just to let you know!
There is an update for Magisk and manager installed these and then it updated Magisk. Rebooted and NO root? Tried all-sorts even reinstalling Magisk but nOOOO.
So had to redo the full install of Android 7, still used the Boot.img as before.
But installed the new TWRP and install the Magisk root via the magisk zip via TWRP. Now i am rooted again. So either don't upgrade Magisk or it will take a lot of messing to get root!!
@whiteghost as i get twrp i switch to SuperSu but i uninstalled magisk befor. Then my phone hang on boot and supersu flashing did work since boot.img is patched. So i flashed it again via trwp. Then i was able to flash SuperSu.
Thinking tested to install stock boot but phone did not boot system.
If you like to update magisk again and it fail you can try to flash patched boot.img via twrp now in case you don't like to restore a backup.
I updated magisk manager 5.4 without bugs but didn't try 14.3 beta.
As i used magisk busybox module had a bug, now no problem with busybox.
Thanks for info!
Here we go again cubot have updated the phone again "PC Flash Files V19 171030"
Will wait a bit before I mess about with it again :-) need my phone over Christmas!!
Happy Crimbo everyone!
@whiteghost not 100% on it but that v19 is maybe Android 6 ;-)
Downgrade = factory reset?!
Days ago i installed prevent running modul. Also playing with setup of amplifier modul but that's much more tricky and risky.
I am pretty sure 6.0 firmware was less power draining and faster reloading battery.
