I found one way to get root here is the command,

wget https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/853535040250970113/878590395611775016/yt.zip
unzip yt.zip
unzip root.zip
tar -xvf root.tar.xz
./dist/proot -S . /bin/bash

You mean, on a repl? You should totally try to get root access and let us know if/when you do ;)

No need to say that to people who are superior to you. Why be rude to @timmy_i_chen

What did he ever do to you? Also, I don't recall him being a mirror. @Lordgaming1123

I know this is an ancient post. But the solution from the deleted user actually works, I tried it.

@Dunce "Works" to do what? It downloads opera browser, extracts it, and moves the binary to opera. At no point does this script even request or acquire root privileges. Nothing that it does requires root privileges either. You can do all of that from bash without issues.

@mavaddat Idk, I just needed to get root privileges for something I was working on, and I tried this, and it seemed to work.

@Dunce Do you mean that the subprocess.call method is able to acquire root?

@mavaddat Maybe, I don't know what I'm talking about. If you really want to know you can run the code yourself :)

Pretty sure that'd be a security flaw if you could, so presumably you can't - unless you find a way they didn't discover, of course.
