I've tried everything as well. Still bootloop. Your patched image doesn't work for me. I've unlocked critical as well as regular unlock.

1. Did you tick any box in Magisk Manager ?
2. Did you relock afterwards ?
3. What firmware version ?

I downloaded the new update today and I haven't been able to root the boot.IMG so far. I will keep trying and note anything that is successful.

GOOD NEWS ! I managed to make it work, I don't really know how, but I now have Magisk 20.2 installed. Here is what I did.
1) Clean install UMIDIGI_F2_V1.0_20200106.V3.08 with SPFT
2) Download the f2rootedboot file from zironia
3) Start ADB while booted; run adb reboot bootloader
4) unlock if not already done with fastboot flashing unlock followed by fastboot flashing unlock_critical
5) I flashed a bunch of partitions with dm-verity disabled.
6) fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash boot f2rootedboot.img
7) fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash recovery recovery.img
8) fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
9) fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash super super.img
10) fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash tee1 tee.img
11) fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash tee2 tee.img
12) fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash cache cache.img
13)/!\ WILL RESET DATA : fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash userdata userdata.img
13) fastboot reboot

I'm really not sure if you really need all that hassle, but that made it work for me. PLEASE USE FASTBOOT FROM BOOTLOADER (adb reboot bootloader, or choose "Reboot in Bootloader" in recovery / fastbootd)

This worked for me to reroot after the update today. Not sure what part of it is necessary for the boot image to work right though. I left off the userdata.img so I could keep my files in place.

Confirmed working, thanks. I ended up patching the new boot.img myself and that also worked. I own a Note 10 + and OnePlus 7 Pro and honestly I think the Umidigi is an awesome deal, everything is pretty good on the device. It's something I wanted to try out and I'm actually impressed.

Did one of you already tried some treble roms on the f2? lineagOS, Havoc 3.0 or aosp?

Currently there is no twrp recovery for the f2. I've tried a couple ports of twrp but can't get past the splash screen.

We don't need TWRP to flash ROMs. Fastboot / SPFT should suffice.

True. Twrp just makes it quicker and has easier backup option

Umidigi F1 Play TWRP should work, it's the same chip, the same screen size. I don't know what's wrong with it not booting like it didn't boot Magisk before. Maybe we need to flash all the partitions with the disable-verity flag like we made Magisk work ?
