    If it is not working with the official Magisk, maybe you could still try the Canary or the Beta channel. There are also so called ,,phh-magisk" versions, sometimes they work when other versions don't.

    I found an other topic about the same issue: Topic There are really just the same ideas we already mentioned, but trying a different USB port or cable sometimes solves problems.

    I hate Windows for various reasons and this is one of them.... You can download a Linux Distribution from the Windows Store and try with that again. Before you do that you have to enable Windows Subsystem for Linux in the Control Panel. Did you try to run the cmd.exe as an admin? Yes, you might...

    Hi, I am not completely sure about this, but try to run the command line as administrator. You can always do a ,,fastboot devices" command to check for the currently discovered devices. Did you enable the unlocking in the developer settings?

    Post [GUIDE] Rooting the UMIDIGI S5 Pro | Magisk

    Thank you for your kind words, I really appreciate it! unfortunately it seems the only way to flash a ROM is through fastboot or SP Flash Tool after unpacking the super.img and replacing the system.img with a GSI. You can find more info and detailed descriptions in the mentioned thread.

    Offline charging and bluetooth audio is kind of a GSI bug as always, but I am afraid that the fingerprint reader will be Umidigis fault, because it is considered an obscure proprietary hardware. I suppose even, if I unpack and repack the super.img I won't be able to get it working, the GSI won't...

    Amazing news! I am very happy to see that my recovery proved useful, since I am not a developer I don't really know what has to be done, to make this obscure hardware work.

    Good news! I will also try to build a more up to date version of TWRP when more commits arrive on GitHub. It would be good to be able to resize the system partition from TWRP, so we don't have to touch or remove the /product partition.

    Hello, I am still not sure, look at this screenshot! I mean in general this is really not a big deal. GSI ROMs tend to act a little weird with partition layouts, anyway. The big deal will be a working TWRP in my opinion.

    Hi! I just saw that it has been removed from the link. Fortunately I saved it, too! Here it is in my MEGA drive: QCN Don't forget to edit it, follow the tutorial. You have to input your own IMEI numbers, otherwise it will not work.
