if you flash magisk_patched.zip nothing noticeable will happen except you will have root access
all your installed application will be there

also i notice this some people actually copy magisk_patched.zip thats really bad idea you need to let Magisk generate it.

For example you have 2 phones same model and same build version .

You generate magisk_patched.zip on the phone A
then decided to copy magisk_patched.zip into phone B ofcourse it will still works

but since you just copy it and didnt let magisk generate it . It would not make backup for boot or recovery partition
if you uninstall Magisk on your phone B .There is really high super ultra mega chance of your phone getting bricks. Also it would not revert any changes done on the period while Magisk is installed

Thanks for the help, please correct me if im wrong.

Im supposed to copy the AP . md5 file to the root directory of my phone, patch it with magisk, get the patched file, copy it on the pc, connect phone to the pc, get it into download mode, flash the patched file with Odin and that should be it?

Or maybe i can do it with twrp?

1. Install the latest Magisk Manager
2. In Magisk Manager: Install → Install → Select and Patch a File and select the AP tar file.
Magisk Manager will patch the whole firmware file and store the output to [Internal Storage]/Download/magisk_patched.tar
3. Copy the patched file to your PC with adb pull /sdcard/Download/magisk_patched.tar. Do not use MTP as it is reported to corrupt files.
4. Reboot to download mode, and flash magisk_patched.tar as AP in Odin, together with the BL, CP and HOME_CSC files. Never flash only an AP file, as Odin can shrink your /data file-system if you do.
Important: Uncheck "Auto Reboot" in Options!
5. Magisk is now successfully flashed to your device! But there are still several steps before you can properly use the device.
6. We now want to boot into the stock recovery to factory reset our device.
Full data wipe is mandatory! Do not skip this step.
Press Power + Volume Down to exit download mode. As soon as the screen turns off, immediately press the combo key to boot to recovery (e.g. on the S10 it is Power + Bixby + Volume Up). Since we want to boot into stock recovery, continue pressing the volume up button until you see the stock recovery screen.
7. Use volume buttons to navigate through the stock recovery menu, and the power button to select an option. Choose Wipe data/factory reset to wipe the data of the device.
8. This time, we can finally boot to the system with Magisk. Select Reboot system now, and immediately press the combo key to recovery. After seeing the bootloader warning screen, release all buttons so it can boot to the system.
9. The device will automatically reboot for the first time it boots. This is completely normal and done by design.
10. After the device is booted up, do the usual initial setup. The following steps will need an internet connection.
11. Magisk Manager will ask to do additional setups. Let it do its job and the app will automatically reboot your device.
12. Voila! Enjoy Magisk

Thanks so much for your help, but i just want to get root back on my phone as i had it rooted already, i dont want to wipe off everything and lose my stuff. There are things that i can only backup with titanium backup, which i can't use now without root privileges :/ can i repair root somehow?

how did you lose your root anyway?
your Android OS updated?

you can try restoring apps with titanium backup but i don't think it will restore Magisk being installed again and gaining root access

if you have boot.img or recovery.img for your device you might not lose your stuff installing back magisk but i think you only have the whole firmware ".tar.md5" flashing thats is like factory reset for your phone


#edit i read about ".tar.md5" they say if you just extract it .It contains all stock .img file for your device such as boot.img, recovery.img , system.img ...etc


since i have too much free time can you upload the firmware ".tar.md5" of your device i will upload .boot.img and recovery.img for you

sorry for late reply i'm kinda busy but to make it easier on my part (downloading 5GB file would take me 5 hours) can you just upload the following ?
AP_N975FXXU1ASH5_CL16618471_QB25345699_REV01_user_ low_ship_meta_OS9.tar.md5
BL_N975FXXU1ASH5_CL16618471_QB25345699_REV01_user_ low_ship.tar.md5

Will do, thank you 👍

Update : just had a look at the size of the files and its probably better to download the zip file that I've sent you already as the AP file itself is 5GB size. Really appreciate that you're helping me out, im not trying anything else with my phone so i don't lose stuff and mess it up. Thanks again 69.
