1. extract the boot.img from the firmware of your device
2. unzip with zarchiver
3. download magisk manager and choose install then select the boot.img file
4. flash the patched boot.img in Odin
Done
there is no TWRP yet cause it would need to be build from source.

4 wait for Aqua screen to come up that says to long press (hold down several seconds ) the Volume UP key to unlock bootloader.)
Maybe the root with magisk is possible too.
After few hours later I have a rooted a20e phone! (A202FXXU2ASG1)
When bootloader is really open odin can rewrite original boot.img with the magisk patched one.
TWRP is only need for me now.

Can you post the files for root? matching the AP via magisk doesnt work, Kingroot doesnt work, I have tried everything, please cam someone help me get this phone rooted!!! the phone is useless as it is as i need titanium backup to work!!!

Hello,

Sorry for chiming in, but maybe there is a misunderstanding? The original boot.img file (extracted from the stock firmware) needs to be first patched by the Magisk app. Only after it has been patched, the boot.img file should be flashed by Odin. Maybe the guide over there helps to make it clearer: https://www.getdroidtips.com/root-galaxy-a20-a20e/

EDIT1: I see posts about "vbmeta warning", so there might be some further hurdles, see e.g. there:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...-help-t4017763

EDIT2: You might also want to have a look into the A20 (i.e. without the "e") section:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...95&postcount=4

EDIT3: vbmeta.tar attached there:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...&postcount=237

Good luck!

PS:
I understood that no TWRP or other custom recovery was needed for this, but I assume that by unlocking the bootloader via the developer options (before flashing) or/and by flashing the patched boot.img (and vbmeta.tar?) file via Odin, the Knox counter is triggered, voiding warranty and some apps not working anymore (e.g. Samsung billing etc.), and OTA updates by Samsung not working anymore. Is that correct?

This thread was started by @Wazzer21. Actually, his first post so far remains the only one. And interestingly, I found this website:

How to Root Samsung Galaxy A20e Pie 9.0 (SM-A202F, SM-A202K)

First of all, thanks to Wazzer21 – XDA developer for TWRP support and topjohnwu – this genius is a one who discovered and maintaining Magisk. Samsung Galaxy A20e International variants come with a flexible bootloader.

Er, what does this mean?

When you read further through that page and come to the comments, you learn:

This does not work…..at all…

The problem is Magisk 20.0. Did you use that Magisk version? If so, Try with Patch version 20.1.


Can somebody please confirm this? Or is this all a hoax? Sorry for asking so bluntly, but I have mixed feelings (and still do not want to appear rude or something).




PS:
On this website about rooting the Samsung A20e ("SM-A202")...
https://www.flashfilebd.com/2019/07/...root-file.html
... there are several files for download and the following info:

...
Here You Find Samsung A20e Root File With Magisk Manager Apk. Samsung SM-A202/F/FN/S/K Binary U1 And U2 Root File Available Here.
...


What do "U1" and "U2" binaries mean, i.e. how do they differ? There is no explanation (unless I have missed something).
