FYI -- if anyone tries this and are UNABLE to click the install button when opening up the towel root apk, disable any apps you're running that cover the entire screen (like Easy Eyes). There must be some sort of security feature that disables clicking the install button when a system-wide mask is enabled!

Took me a while to figure it out!
