Hi.
I can confirm that the above method works. You have to unlock your bootloader first.
Go to About phone -> Build number, tap it a few times until you enable Developer options. In there make sure OEM unlocking and USB debugging is enabled.
Reboot to fastboot (VOL- + Power) and type fastboot oem unlock, reboot phone, turn off and start in fastboot mode and execute first post commands.
It works passing SafetyNet once you finish installing latest Magisk.

Good luck.

After executing all commands from first post if you check ROOT status it will be OK but SafetyNet will be broken. Then install magisk from inside Magisk Manager, the recommended way and is will pass it.
At least it worked like that for me.
Good luck.
