How to Root Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ & Flash TWRP (Exynos Only)

Quote:

NOTICE :

Before you move further, make clear that rooting device -
- Your warranty will be void
- Some of functions may not work on rooted device, some function may get back with un rooting, some may never.
- All your data on device will be lost
- Flashing custom binaries may brick (Usually soft but can be hard brick too) your device, so follow it on your own risk!

If you are ready with condition, move further -

Before moving to root device, must read every single instruction given below as any small mistake can lead to fail to achieve root or may brick the device.

A.Preparing Root files

You need to patch file to flash using Odin to root device.
1. Download stock firmware for your device (google search will give you many sites to download it) some common are e.g. Sammobile, Samfirmware tool)
you need to download file according your region and model (Dial *#1234# will give you details of existing firmware, download accordingly)

2. Once you finish download, extract files and keep all files on PC. From extracted files a file with name AP_[device_model_sw_ver].tar.md5 copy to your device.

3.Download Latest Magisk Manager and Install to your device

4.Open Magisk Manager - Magisk (first one) - Install - select to "Select and Patch file" - Navigate file you have copied to device (AP_[device_model_sw_ver].tar.md5)

5.Magisk Manager will patch the whole firmware file and store the output to [Internal Storage]/Download/magisk_patched.tar

6.Copy patched file magisk_patched.tar to Your PC

7.Download latest Odin (one is attached to end of this post) and extract to a folder on PC (I recommend on desktop)

Now next step is to modification on device

B. Unlocking Bootloader

This is a basic step to root device. Go to settings - about phone - Software Information - tap multiple times on "Build number" - This will open developer option.
Now in settings at the end, you will have new option "Developer options" - look for OEM unlocking - Enable it.

(PS : If you don't see this option then you may need to wait up to 7 days or more to appear or may be on some operator you will get it never. Without this option you can not root your device, sorry!)

Once you have enable OEM unlock option, switch off your device and reboot to download mode.
To put device in download mode - Press Volume Up & then Press Volume Down (Keep holding both) and connect device to PC with USB cable
When device start to download mode,long press volume up to unlock the bootloader. This will wipe your data and automatically reboot

Now let finish setup and again enable developer options (as said above), and confirm that the OEM unlocking option exists and grayed out!
If it is not then you can not root device!

Once you see this option and greyed out, you are ready to flash custom binary and root your device

C.Installation (Flashing) custom binaries

1. Switch off the device and reboot to download mode (As said earlier) and select volume up to continue

2. Open Odin (downloaded from above instruction) as administrator
Select magisk_patched.tar file you have patched (as above instruction copied to PC) for AP tab of Odin
Select BL,CP and CSC file (Extract from stock firmware you have downloaded) with according respective tab of Odin (This is important, DON'T flash only magisk_patched.tar )

3.From Odin option - uncheck Auto Reboot option

4.Now start flashing and wait till it finish. When you see a PASS sign on Odin, disconnect device.

Now magisk is successfully finished but yet you need to follow instructions below.

D. Factory reset & Boot with magisk

After disconnecting device, keep holding Vol down + Side key to exit from download mode.
Here is very important - when you see device reboot As soon as the screen turns off, immediately press Volume Up + Side Key to boot to recovery partition. continue pressing the volume up button until you see the stock recovery screen.

In the stock recovery menu, use volume buttons to navigate through menus, and the power button to select the option. Select Wipe data/factory reset to wipe the data of the device.
Select Reboot system now, and immediately press Volume Up + Side Key. After seeing the bootloader warning screen, release all buttons so it can boot to the system.

The device will automatically reboot for the first time it boots. This is completely normal and done by design.After the device is booted up, do the usual initial setup. You shall see Magisk Manager in your app drawer; if not, manually install the APK you downloaded and continue to the next step. The app would be a stub and it shall automatically upgrade to the full Magisk Manager when you open it.

Magisk Manager will ask to do additional setups. Let it do its job and the app will automatically reboot your device.

Voila! Enjoy Magisk


E.Flashing TWRP

Once you have device with Root as said above, follow below guide to install TWRP.

1.Download TWRP for your device from here. (Remember you need to download TWRP with Magisk patched folder) - Thanks to geiti94

2.Download Note10_multidisabler_V*.zip from same link and copy to Ext Storage (Because once you flash TWRP, Int storage will not be readable)

3.Switch Off device and then Press Vol Up + Vol down and connect device to USB - To put device into Download Mode

4.Now select Magisk patched TWRP tar file you have downloaded with Odin in AP tab

5.Immediately after that reboot to recovery and flash Note10_multidisabler_V*.zip

6.Reboot to recovery and select WIPE - Format Data - Now you need to type "YES" ( NOTE : THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA from device including Int Storage)

7.Reboot Device

Done! Now you have TWRP with Rooted device.

PS : Once you Install patched TWRP and flash MultiDisabler V*.zip, your OEM unlock option will set to Off and can not be turned ON because of hacked OEM function. This is made intentionally to prevent official binary error.

Important :

Due to the fact that some devices no longer uses ramdisk in boot images, Magisk has no choice but to be installed in the recovery partition. For these devices, you will have to boot to recovery every time if you want Magisk. Since both Magisk and recovery lives in the same partition, what you actually end up getting when you choose to boot to recovery will be determined by how long you press volume up.
  • (Powering up normally) → (System with NO Magisk)
  • (OEM Recovery Key Combo) → (Splash screen) → (Release all buttons) → (System with Magisk)
  • (OEM Recovery Key Combo) → (Splash screen) → (Keep pressing volume up) → (Actual recovery)


For more details read Installation guide by @topjohnwu from Here

All credit and thanks go to @topjohnwu for magisk & Guide.



Happy rooting!


Xposed

Just tried and eDxposed working fine.
- Install EdXposed installer
- from magisk download install Ritu-core module
- from magisk download install Ritu - EDxposed (yahfa)

Done.

We strongly recommend to make EFS backup as soon as you root device and store it to safer place

Don't you lose some Samsung function when you root and even relock the bootloader?
