    So If I switch from Global NA Rom to CN Rom which has more features anyway. Then fastboot TWRP, Flash Magisk Root....couldn't I just flash Open Gapps Nano on CN Rom and debloat with root and be good to go?
    This method worked for me no problem. Except it only let me install Gapps pico due to insufficient space on the partition.

    A word of warning for those wanting to do this: after a couple of days my screen would start to lock immediately after unlocking with face, fingerprint etc. Leaving it pretty much unusable..even after rebooting repeatedly. Eventually figured out that whenever Google/Gmail would notify via status bar it killed the screen. So after rebooting I had only a matter of seconds to go and disable notifications for Gmail. After a while I would toggle them back on and it would work, but a day later the same thing happened. I'm thinking this happens whenever Gmail updates. Wondering if anyone else experienced the same.

    So after flashing TWRP in guide have to "fastboot boot recovery-TWRP-3.3.1-0528-NUBIA_REDMAGIC3-CN-wzsx150.img" then you can unplug from PC....if you do not boot into TWRP stock recovery will overwrite it.
