three easy reasons: bloatware, optimization, rooting

About bloatwares there are many threads on XDA and on the internet explaining how to remove Google and Samsung bloatwares with adb command with many lists of apps you can remove or disable by yourself.

For rooting and at present time there is only one way to do it and it's all explained in my tutorial you can find here :


You can find the latest magisk-v24.0.apk in post #174 so skip the one I posted in OP...

For optimization, as this is a new phone and as no one can propose the kind of optimizations you expect and as rooting is "experimental", you have to do optimizations by yourself... ^^

By "experimental root" I meant root is actually working fine, BUT Magisk is going on a new way as Magisk Hide is missing or not working as it should !!!
I did explain all this in my tutorial.

There is no TWRP available yet for this phone and thus no custom ROM either... ^^

Why dont you try an GSI of android 12 :) that might work out but then no root or optimizations :(

This has been fix with my tutorial and @beanbean50 confirms he rooted his Galaxy Fold 3 with his camera working. ;)



I have seen this term many times but still don't understand the meaning of GSI... ^^
GSI means Generic System Image. These kind of ROMs work on any device running android 8.0 or higher and support A-Only or A/B partitions.

Advantages
Faster Updates
No TWRP Needed (Only Fastboot Needed or Odin in Samsung Phones)

Disadvantages
Only 95% of the gsi may work
There might be a lot of bugs and issues

no dependancies twrp to custom rom (one can be created without other and vice versa) , indeed are several recovery (lineage,pitch black, orage fox) for custom rom , theoretically could be installed by odin. telephone is not so new (august 2021), has chipset 778 (febraury 2021) . Samsung UI , it's heavy and with some bugs or limitataion (randomly camera not working with bl unlocked, call reacording not enabled if you dont' flash uae rom). You explain so many , many works that custom rom can resolve with snap. That's why good Custom rom always better than other 10000 tiny, boring and time spendig jobs

NOPE !!!

You thought I didn't test Zygist before posting the different variants of Magisk till Magisk v24 ??? lol
Magisks post v23 were mostly written for the Oppo, Xiaomi and then Nexus/Pixel devices, but Samsung Galaxy devices were not taking into account in the devs's priority if not at all !
I follow most of the discussions in the development of the Magisk forks and no one even owns a Samsung devices or even care about Samsung.

There was a bug in Magisk v23 that causes bootloop in most newer Android devices (a fstab story) and instead of simply patching Magisk, they decided to take Magisk all apart with a fork for Oppo, another one for Xiaomi and then one for the Nexus/Pixel all with a different philosophy... Instead of Magisk Hide which was removed, then created new concepts of "Deny List" and/or "White list" but which work differently from the previous Magisk Hide !!!

Zygist doesn't work, or at least not with the Samsung Galaxy !!!

- First, it disables riru framework and EdXposed/LSposed modules and thus all modules based on them won't work anymore such as XprivacyLua, Firefds Kit and some others... Only AfWall++ continues working...
- Then, once rooted with magisk with Zygist on, I couldn't get any protected Samsung apps working such as Secure Folder, Samsung Health is working only partly as I can run it once but I can't access to it anymore unless I reboot the phone. Samsung Health is working in the background as I can see its notification and the number of steps I walked during the day (...), but once again I can't access to the inner of the apps and I don't have access to the health parameters... Samsung Pay also won't work and others I don't use...

ATM I'm still fighting with Android studio to understand how I can build my own Magisk app for the Samsung Galaxy devices...

I don't know your real english level but you didn't follow all the discussions at all as this is exactly what I said there is no dependencies between TWRP and custom ROM !!! SIC

But you need to build TWRP with the source code from the Galaxy A52S 5G specifically as TWRP for the A52 5G won't work on our device !!! I also tried different TWRP from other brands/models with the same SOC but again they do NOT work !
Then you are confusing between so many things which are not related with TWRP or custom rom such as "camera not working with bl unlocked", call recording and so on...

Many bla bla bla, but what can you do for the community ??? ^^ SIC

Are you able to build a TWRP for the A52S 5G or can you build a custom rom for the same device ???

So STOP TALKING (and criticizing) and DO SOMETHING if you can !!!
