Any alternative to Odin? I've given ADB a try since my only device with usb c is a linux. This command:

└──╼ $fastboot flash boot_a magisk_patched-23000_H7hbm.img

fails with something about "command unknown" : (
Very optimistic since you managed it there's a point to keep trying

Hello. I downloaded all the necessary files, but I don't know the procedure of what to do with those files.

I would ask you if you can write me detailed instructions.

Thanks in advance

As written in the original post:
Flash with Odin without HOME folder.

After you flash it and device starts - run Magisk app, it will need to finalize root. Than run Root checker app to see if it worked.

Download Odin, run it - select files and flash.
Check some tutorials for it if you are first timer, lots of videos on youtube.

Hello Dear Friends, I have been struggling for a couple of days to root my Samsung A72 ( SM-A725F/DS)
Android 11 baseband version ( A725FXXU3AUG2 )

OEM unlocking is already unlocked.
but when I'm going to download mode it shows the following:

FRP LOCK: OFF
OEM LOCK: ON
KG STATUS: CHECKING

I tried a lot to flash TWRP or patched boot image with magisk. it never worked.

I also reflashed the whole firmware it didn't work
several times I turned it off and on the OEM unlocking still did not work.

I did a lot of googling and I found that I should unlock OEM via fastboot.
I installed ADB and android drivers on my windows 10

I tried that too here is the below log:

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19043.1237]
(c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Sher>adb devices
List of devices attached
RZ8R31HB8RB device


C:\Users\Sher>adb reboot bootloader

C:\Users\Sher>fastboot devices
RZ8R31HB8RB fastboot

C:\Users\Sher>fastboot flashing unlock
...
FAILED (remote: unknown command)
finished. total time: 0.006s

C:\Users\Sher>fastboot oem unlock
...
FAILED (remote: unknown command)
finished. total time: 0.004s

C:\Users\Sher>fastboot reboot
rebooting...

finished. total time: 0.001s

C:\Users\Sher>

when I'm trying to check if the fastboot commands works or not I tried to reboot the phone it did not work as you see in the above command.


I tried 3 different computers it never worked for me.

can you please guide and help me on how to unlock OEM on my A72 phone?


your help and support will be appreciated


regards,

Sher

If I remember correctly I had to change device date over a month to the future to be able to fully OEM unlock it in dev oprions, after initial OEM unlock was done. It is timed.

I didn't think it work, but it did. I tried a few different methods over the last few days and I just couldn't get a recovery running or a magisk modified (about 100mb) boot.img file uploaded through Odin. Thank you very much for this post.

1. OEM unlock (All data will be lost and warranty void.) Enable USB debugging.
2. Download latest firmware to PC
3. Install Magisk APK from github on phone (keep a copy on the sd card to survive wipes for convenience)
4. Copy the (about 6GB) AP file from the firmware package on pc to the phone
5. Run Magisk on the AP file
6. Copy the magisk_patched-xxxxx_xxxxx.tar that is generated by Magisk to PC
7. Boot phone in download mode. Run ODIN and flash the magisk_patched-xxxxx_xxxxx.tar under AP (no other fields need to be populated)
8. Phone will auto reboot and factory reset itself. Install all your accounts as this will be the final working version of your phone.
9. Install Magisk again and it will do the final config and reset the phone.
10. Enjoy. Install root checker to confirm. Test with a rooted app like vanced.

Hi guys,
Can you confirm that magisk on A72 shows "Ramdisk: yes" ?
(I want to get this phone, but want to avoid getting root only via recovery like on S10 that doesn't have ramdisk)

    Not a very detailed how-to, but it gets the job done. I successfully rooted my SM-A725M/DS with this method.

    Thanks.
