Which specific options in Magisk Manager did you change from their default values (if any)?
Can you please confirm?
I'm getting inpatient to try it out, but I dont want to mess up my XP8800. Sorry about bombarding you with the questions, but I need to make sure I understand all steps of the process.
All defaults.. Nothing changed on the device or within magisk.
Rooting is a risk no matter what device you have. I really don't want to see you brick your phone dude.
Things do seem to work great but if your hesitant then you should only go into it assuming that it will brick and if you end up with root then call it a lucky day. I had 2 succusses but I'm also the only one here doing full-on testing. For the most part we are speculating around the potential of negative outcomes without determining any level of relevance. All the information I provided is only a foundation for others to start with - not to be seen as a definitive guide.
2 squirrels crossing the road. One of them closed their eyes and took their shot. The other one couldn't fully accept the risk, made it half way across, hesitated, and got hit by a car.
Don't be the hesitant squirrel! If it's not completely worth the risk then stay where you are
. At the end of the day It's just ewaste to me but you actually have something to loose here.
--edit-- I forgot to address your other question. The prompt is non-intrusive / "Push to pause".. It lasts for about 5s. Strangely, if you do pause it, it only extends the delay to about 30s and still proceeds on it's own. It took me a few reboots to catch the picture - if your not watching then it's easy to miss even.
