What's knox ? : https://www.google.com/search?q=samsung+knox+explained

-Download the latest stock firmware for your Samsung Galaxy A71 with Samfirm/Frija app (faster) or Samfrew/Sammobile website (way slower).


https://samfrew.com/model/SM-A715F/


-Extract the SM-A715XX_1_EXAMPLE_0000000000_fac.zip file with 7zip or any other unzipper.

-Copy the (AP_A715XXXXU1XXXX_CL00000000_QB00000000_REV00_use r_low_ship_MULTI_CERT_meta_OS10.tar.md5) file and transfer it to your internal storage.

-Open Magisk Manager and go to Install > Install > Select and Patch a file.

-Navigate through the storage and select the extracted AP file.
The firmware will be patched and will be found in Internal Storage/Download/magisk_patched.tar.

-Transfer the patched file to your PC.

-Turn OFF your device and boot into DOWNLOAD MODE.

-In Odin, click on AP and select the patched tar file, Uncheck “Auto Reboot” and click on Install.

The tool will flash Magisk V20 on your Samsung Galaxy A71.

To boot in recovery or boot the system with Magisk installed:

3. Power + Volume Up → Bootloader warning → Keep holding volume up → Actual recovery

The reason it's not mentionned is simply because we can't, we just need to download latest firmware and patch it with magisk.

topjohnwu stated ( and i tested it myself ) that if we flash the latest OTA it will brick the device, which is logic.

We need to patch the latest firmware with magisk, if we go from a rooted environment to a non rooted it will brick.

I hope i cleared your thoughs.

Okay, so let's say if i get new OTA push notification, i download it first online and then i follow your root tutorial to update it with magisk included?

exactly, download the needed firmware and extract the AP file and put it in the download folder on your A71 device, then patch it to obtain a magisk_patched.tar file to flash in odin.
