As you have seen in the title, this is a warning. DON'T root your galaxy a32, as it can take some time but the phone will lose fingerprint unlock and sim card/internet functionality because of UNKNOWN BASEBAND and IMEI error.

You can't get it to work even reflashing stock firmware, and you can't downgrade because of samsung bootloader lock. There's no TWRP for the 4g variant so you can't backup important partitions. Many people are having this problem with both 4g and 5g, as seen in the forums from those device.

If you don't want to turn ur galaxy into an AndroidPod with no sim, then don't root it, atleast for now or until magisk people bug fix it.



Lets try to talk to john wu on twitter guys

I posted in the Magisk support forum.
I haven't opened a bug repot in github yet, cause they require the bugs to be tried on their alpha "canary" versions.
I found very old bug reports of people having the same problem with older samsungs. IDK if related. I'm still investigating and talking in the support forum.
Maybe soon I'll try flashing their canary version. I don't thinnk it will fix it but It'll help me investigate further into the partitions and such.

Check your SM- model, if it's not a Q then just find another ROM.
Boot TWRP and install the stock ROM for the 4G version of the phone.

    Are we completely sure it's due to a bug in Magisk?
    most likely... the same people that made the first rooting guides for the a32 were having this problem
