Did you try this?
make magisk_patched.img by Magisk Manager
get recovery.img & vbmeta.img from stock ROM
boot to fastboot mode
fastboot flashing unlock
(unnecessary if already unlocked)
fastboot flashing unlock_critical
(if I remember correctly, at this moment the phone rebooted, you will need to take it to the fastboot again)
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash boot magisk_patched.img
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
it works for me.
