I have only tested magisks on SM-J727P, When you flash it you need to format your data again and then manually patch via the magisks manager then it will work properly.

Wjat is meant by recovery? Is it not flashing factory rom?
Now, I don't think I understand TWRP fully, What it does. Is it used to fix root or system problems?

Thanks

If I flash this update, will I be able to activate the phone, I am outside Sprint and legacy carrier's network. I'm in Africa.

My phone is unusable right now, I flashed August nougat update, I couldn't go past activation screen

#3 boot into twrp wipe data in advanced options then mount system an flash magisk 17.1 zip wipe data again an boot phone setup phone an install magisk manager open manager in popup click yes it run threw an go away after that when ever you open magisk manager the popup will there an just click no thanks ! You should have no reason to open again it should just keep granting your root app access ! Hope this works for you all !!

A note about root; Magisk 17.1 will sometimes lose root. If this happens simply reflash magisk and reboot. The devs are working on it. We aren't the only one's with this problem. There is now a magisk 17.2 canary build which is in testing to bring better support for Oreo/Pie. I've tried it and had very good success so far.
