Let's root our Max Lumi


**I am not responsible for any damage to your device. Please take care of your actions.**
Steps to install:
[1] Current firmware version is 3.0. My Max Lumi came with it. Attached bootimage is for version 3.0.
[2] Download and install Magisk Manager on Max Lumi.
[3] Do you have installed adb and fastboot on your computer?
[4] Enable usb debugging on your Max Lumi, plug it into your computer, and run in command line to check connection.
Code:
adb devices
[5] start a bootloader session
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
[5] The bootloader of Max Lumi is unlocked. You can check it with:
Code:
fastboot flashing unlock
[6] flash patched bootimage
Code:
fastboot flash boot your_patched_boot.img
Then your Max Lumi reboots by itself
[7] Start Magisk Manager and you use "direct install" method to root permanently.
Sample terminal session:
Code:

C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>adb devices
List of devices attached
e3b2a8ed        device
C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>adb reboot bootloader
C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>fastboot flashing unlock
...
FAILED (remote:        Device already : unlocked!)

C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>fastboot boot Max_Lumi_v3.0.Magisk.21.2.boot.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  0.276s]

OKAY [  0.002s]
finished. total time: 0.301s
C:\Users\Leo\Desktop\Max Lumi>

It's a non standard installation of Magisk, because Max Lumi has a bootimage without ramdisk but loads this ramdisk when it is patched to bootimage.
decrypt Boox Update Upx, to get a bootimage of firmware update.
