On this stage you might want to disable encryption in order to have full-fledged backup-recovery option in TWRP next time you use it. To do so you will have to format data partition. After that step you will loose all you applications and user data for them, so you should backup it previously. After you format the data, flash Magisk first, then flash encryption disabling script from this post. Now you can boot to OS.

Note, that attached TWRP is only valid for firmware CUBOT_KINGKONG_MINI_9101C_V06_20191121. Cubot has released a new one and you can try to use the TWRP with it, but there is no guarantee it will work correctly.

Friends ask for help about the Root
I installed TWRP and after hours of searching, I found a method to unencrypt files by installing certain files and because I didn't know what the role of each file was, I installed all of them:
(I was desperate and didn't understand what each file did exactly)
Then I installed Magisk Zip by the recovery and the Magisk APK
All installations went through TWRP with no errors at all including the Magisk Zip
But I haven't taken root yet and I still have a question mark instead of a green vi
Did I do something wrong?
What are the steps that need to be done and are they important to order?

A few days later when I connect the mobile in the PC, the battery image was showed on screen with 18% of charge and I saw in that moment that I could flash the firmware again.
I flashed official firmware and the mobile worked again but now it died again... because I did a wrong recovery boot. I will wait discharge the battery again.

I have black screen too and unworking buttons since 4 days ago. How long will take discharging battery in this state? I try around 10 times a day to power up the phone. I'm very patient but I'm thinking on disassemble phone and battery despite losing the warranty.
