OK on my a5h now I can call but as you have said there is just call sound problem. Now I can play my music. However, it seems to have issues of touch sensitivity for both screen and soft keys after opening screen lock. Thanks for the work

Sorry but the issues of touch were as a result of improper rooting. My realisation is that if phone is not properly rooted, it can misbehave in several ways.

Could you explain more please?
because as far as I know, it is properly rooted but when you use the phone after a fresh install the Magisk SU gets a little weired but, after a while it works fine.

Sorry @Ahmed_Khalifa. I should have talked about my phone. I am always forced to re-root any ROM which is pre-rooted for this reason. I don't know if anyone else has had such a situation like mine but my phone always requires that I re-root it. Moreover, I have personal issues with magiskSU because it does not root my phone completely and am unable to use certain apps that I always need. Hence as can be seen from the screenshot I earlier sent, I have to combine magisk and superSU. For me I have no need for safety net. For instance, after following my usual procedure of rooting fully (as I would call it), the rom has no more issues and i can now use it as i want.Thanks.
