Can not install Magisk after 12.1.3 update

Hello.

After the 12.1.3 update, with the new Magisk app the instructions state that we should extract the recovery.img patch it and flash it to the device in fastboot. After a restart the phone should be rooted. This is however not the case. When I try to flash OrangeFox, and flash the avb patcher from Mauronofrio, OrangeFox remains after a reboot and I can enter it any time holding the volume up at boot. So in theory the recovery partition should not be overwritten to default on restart.

But when I flash over a default-magisk-flashed image, the phone remains un-rooted.

Am I doing something wrong or is this an on-going issue?

When u have a customer recovery, download the last magisk.zip and flash it. Simple
In the installation guide they wrote that u have rename only the apk to zip. Very simple

That is only for the Magisk app, not to root the phone. Rooting the phone is a totally different procedure.

Number ome was the last zip with I root my phone with simple flash and number 2 is the new one.
Look inside.
Here the how to from magisk for a customer recovery.

Download the Magisk APK
Rename the .apk file extension to .zip, for example: Magisk-v22.0.apk → Magisk-v22.0.zip. If you have trouble renaming the file extension (like on Windows), use a file manager on Android or the one included in TWRP to rename the file.
Flash the zip just like any other ordinary flashable zip.
Check whether the Magisk app is installed. If it isn’t installed automatically, manually install the APK.

Did you solve it? After I've updated to V12.1.2.0.RFDMIXM Android 11, I can't install Magisk through TWRP, even with the latest canary release

Also tried installing through patching boot.img and recovery.img, with magisk 21.4, 22.0, and latest canary (22006). Everytime system refuses to boot (shows MIUI boot screen for a couple of minutes, then vibrator, then system reboots to recovery).

I've also searched in https://xiaomi.eu/ forums, and the official Magisk general support thread https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/magisk-general-support-discussion.3432382/ but can't find any solutions.

Patching the images does not work. But installing the magisk.zip (the latest version) through TWRP or OrangeFox does work (tested and confirmed)! I don't get why it works when installing the zip and does not when patching a recovery.img but this is what we got...
Fun Fact, the instruction manual states you have to hold the HW key to enter recovery until the boot logo shows up, for me now the device is rooted on every boot without any issues, without the need to hold down any buttons.

I just decided to update to V12.1.3 yesterday and got the same problem as yours. Keep trying every version of magisk, from latest and its previous to no avail. It got stuck at MIUI logo even when I left for good half an hour. If I didnt flash magisk zip it loads just as normal but without root, but I still want magisk.

Today I just thought of trying different version of recovery. The current one is TWRP-3.3.2B-0219-XIAOMI_CC9PRO-CN-wzsx150 that got me stuck. Then I flash [email protected]_2.zip recovery. Flash V12.1.3 followed by Magisk-v22-0.zip using OrangeFox worked wonderful. Hope it can help you if you are still stuck like me. Now I can sleep at night.

Right now I'm still in trouble, after a Magisk update, my phone got stuck in bootloop I had to wipe everything.

But nor the latest .Eu or Global ROM works with Magisk now. I followed the guide by topjonwho (Magisk dev) that says if I don't have a boot.img, I have to modify the recovery.
Well, no luck.

But! If I take the boot.img from the fastboot ROM, and modify that with Magisk, I can boot it up with root. But if I flash that boot.img I'm still stuck on boot. Same with original and TWRP recovery.

You say using [email protected]_2.zip I can just simply flash Magisk 22.1 az a .zip, like in the good old days?

Yup, tried that boot.img method doesn't work too.

It was magisk 22.0 when I upgraded to 12.1.3 but i guess 22.1 works the same. So nervous waiting the MIUI screen for about 15 minutes, relieved when it finally went through.

Now I'm already upgraded to 12.1.5 magisk 22.1 using the same method. Flash rom followed by magisk zip, like good old days.

So I'll have wait at boot for about 15 min? I'm afraid of screen burn-in.
