Hello to all,
i'm sorry, but i'm very f....up right now.
I postponed to root my s7 SM-G930FD 2 years an wanted to do it now, to get rid of the space consuming bloatware...
unfourtunately the given hints in this thread didn't work for me.
I'am using the latest stock-rom (march 2019)
1. flashing twrp (ltehero 22.214.171.124 ) worked fine
2. rebooting to recovery without any problems
3. wiping date worked well
4. rebooting to recovery without any problems again
wondering about the necessary decision "allow or deny modifications to the system partition" when entering twrp (in further actions, i used both ways), but can somebody tell, which way is required?
6a. flashing "no-verity-op" was displayed as "done" and "successful", then navigating back in twrp and flashing "magisk 18.1", also displayed as "done" and "successful" (i didn't use the mechanism to select both zip-files and letting them to be flashed in one sequence by twrp)
6b. due to some hints, that there might be problems with current stock-rom-versions, i found this post
and tried this alternatively to step 6a, including the flashing of magist 18.1. Here also no errors were displayed, "done" and "successful"
, after rebooting the system and installing "root checker", root was displayed as not available. "Root access is not properly installed on this device"
i can't find any "magisk" on the phone
What were my mistakes?
Can you help me solving this issue?
One thing, i noticed, but am not sure about if it is relevant, was, that when rebooting to recovery mode after step 6 the question 5 is not displayed. But when entering the recovery mode after step 7, it reappears, each time.
: i tried to backup my data prior to this action with samsung smartswitch to my pc. I restored it once and found out, that no data was backed up nor restored. F.... F..... F......
This wouldn't have happened with root. Are there any suggestions how to backup almost everything without root, next time?
