    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 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.

    Post umidigi s5 pro - has anyone installed Lineage OS on it?

    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.

    Post umidigi s5 pro - has anyone installed Lineage OS on it?

    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.

    Post umidigi s5 pro - has anyone installed Lineage OS on it?

    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.

    Thanks for the link, I will check it out! I am also concerned about the fingerprint reader, since we don't really have kernel sources as far as I know.

    Hello! Oh my God how did you figure this out by yourself? I completely gave up when I saw the terrible partition layout. I will try to flash one GSI following your guidance. So is it actually possible to avoid using TWRP and to flash GSIs from fastbootd? I thought Umidigi made it impossible...

    Dear members! There is another UMIDIGI S5 Pro thread and I just wanted to let you know that I made a half working TWRP for the device, however with this ,,super" partition layout we should try to flash custom GSIs through fastbootd, but for now it does not fully work for me.

    Please be careful and never post your unique IMEI number(s)! It is interesting, that you have a 7-digit number in your Fastboot menu. Have you tried to input the one from the settings? You have to find the other serial number, I think it is under the ,,IMEI information".
