Yeah I have been rooting since OG Note 1 and I still have it..lol. my hat off to both of you for helping without being jerks about it as I see so many people do. And I think for me it was exactly what you said. It used to be CF auto root..bam...twrp..boom done! But since I did give the device to my daughter and everytime I see her with it I'm like dang that was a nice device for the price, I want it back..lol. I will probably get another next week

Yes.
They're slightly different beasts.

You could always change it for the a20.
Or you could use AIK to modify the a20 TWRP.

If you are in the USA then you may be buying a SM-A205U.
If so then it cannot be rooted.
If it is not this model number, then we can help you.

You don't need a custom ROM. Just use GSIs. We have a thread here that should help.
