Oppo (to my knowledge) makes it basically impossible to root, due to locking the boot loader and removing fast boot. So I'm wondering if this changes anything in regards to Privilege escalation exploits, whether they still work exactly the same or if they don't work at all. It might sound stupid, but I ask because if I can't gain root access to my own device, how can other malicious applications, programs and scripts do so.
(Assuming the Oppo phone in question uses up-to-date security updates)
Also I'm specifically talking about Privilege escalation exploits that can root a phone
