Root Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro Using Magisk Tool

Before you begin, I would recommend downloading the files below:

After downloading the files required for the root process, see the tutorial below:

  1. First, install Magisk on your Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro.
  2. Then, download the zip file containing the factory image for your build.
  3. Inside the factory zip, open the update zip and look for “device-image-buildnumber.zip”. Open the destination file and extract the boot.img.
  4. Once done, copy the boot.img to your Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
  5. Now to pat the boot.img with Magisk go to Install > Select and Patch a File.
  6. After that, move the patched image to your PC. The file name will look like magisk_patched-23xxx_xxxxx.img. Simply rename it to “master root.img” and save it for future updates.
  7. Next, reboot your Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro mobile phone to the bootloader.
  8. With all set, use this command to flash the patched image on your smartphone: fastboot flash boot <drag and drop master root.img here>
  9. To finalize changes, reboot your Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro.
  10. After restart, open Magisk and confirm that the root is successful.
  11. That’s all.

Your Google Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro is now in a rooted state. You can go ahead and customize your phone to your heart’s content.

Also, please note that with each new firmware update your device will lose root access. In that case, you’ll have to perform the above process from step 2 onward after the software update.
