Going from 7.1.2 to 9 I used a EFS backup, however on the new ROM the device is stating the app is for an older model and will not run properly, does anyone know of an android wide EFS backup and restore that negates android version?

Followed your instructions, however I get a message stating:

-Unmounting the partitions.
Updater process ended with ERROR: 1
Error installing zip file 'external_sdcard/Magisk-v20.0.zip(this is in red letters)
Updating partition details... done...

I'm starting to suspect the phone is rebooting itself due to hardware failure, as I was unable to install SuperSu at the beginning. (Though it only happens when on the actual Android OS, not on TWRP).

Any further suggestions, anyone, please?

EDIT: I am starting to suspect a major hardware failure. All SIMs I've tried (T-Mobile, Sprint, Tracfone, Cricket) says it's invalid, despite two of them working before with no problem. Perhaps getting the original stock ROM may fix the issue, but I imagine asking for it over here may be taboo.

Thanks for any assistance you may give me at this point.

There are two ways of using Magisk to root.

1) Use Magisk on PC to create a patched boot image, then flash the patched boot image via your devices specific flashtool(the same tool used to flash your stock firmware and to flash TWRP)

Or

2) flash TWRP then use TWRP to flash the Magisk installer then reboot to system and install the Magisk app.

If you're getting errors, post your questions in the Magisk thread.

If you were previously rooted, Magisk will kick out those errors. You need to completely unroot before attempting to install Magisk. There is a unsu.zip in osm0sis' Odds and Ends thread.

If your device is rooted by modifying the boot.img, then flashing the untouched stock boot.img will also unroot (the original boot.img for whatever ROM you are using, stock OS or custom ROM).

If your device roots by patching the recovery.img, then do the same but with the recovery.img.

Please read and understand Magisk Documentation and reference Magisk and MagiskHide Installation and Troubleshooting guide

At this point, I don't think you have an option but to start over with a clean flash. SuperSu is really not a viable root option on modern devices. It's not been updated in years.

If I had a modern device that Magisk was an actual option to root the device, I'd have a better understanding of troubleshooting issues involved with Magisk. The only knowledge I have concerning Magisk is just in what I've researched and read, I don't have the "hands on" to go with it. The rest of you guys have a better understanding of it than I do.

Turn it off?

Seriously though, that is nowhere near the information needed to help. Device, OS (stock ROM, custom ROM which version), mods, when does it overheat and anything else you can think of.

Does it overheat if booted to safe mode?

More than likely, it's a low end device running a LOS/Gapps build that is more demanding than their hardware was meant to run.

Modern device?
The SM-S767VL/Galaxy J7 came out with Oreo I believe, and Magisk supports Oreo.
The problem isn't an old device, the problem is Samsung and Knox, and not having an S series device that @topjohnwu always tries to add support for.
For me personally, I quit Samsung after the S3 when the news about Knox came out about it being introduced on the S4. Trying to stop me from rooting? I'll find a new OEM.

EDIT: It should work on your phone as well, but you would need to extract the boot.img on your PC, transfer that to your phone, patch the boot.img with Magisk Manager, transfer that back to your PC, and flash it with ODIN.

Yeah, but, I didn't say I didn't have a modern device, I said "if I had a modern device that Magisk was actually an option for rooting". As in, locked bootloader, no flashing patched boot.img and no flashing TWRP. Rooting via flashing isn't an option for me, rooting via an app on android or PC is the only option and none work, lol. A dead fish as far as I'm concerned.

I broke my old phone, it was a quick, cheap, reasonable spec replacement device.
