Stuck...

My phone after following the guide is stuck on Orange State.
It says it will boot in 5 seconds but it has been half an hour now.
I need this phone recovered as soon as possible because it's my only device.
Please help! I beg on my knees :(((

That method doesn't work for Oreo. If you want root or TWRP try this method:

It won't unlock your bootloader though

Warning: This guide is a WiP and is NOT complete. DO NOT FOLLOW THIS GUIDE UNTIL THIS MESSAGE IS REMOVED.

You will require ADB and Fastboot installed on your computer.

First you will need to send a private message to the_lazer with your IMEI and Serial Number and they will give you a key to unlock the bootloader.
Wherever you see KEY in this guide replace that with the key you got given.

Second you will need to download Magisk from here, rename that file to
Code:
magisk.zip
Then download the TWRP.img from here.
If the touch screen doesn't work on TWRP then press the power button so the screen sleeps and then press it again so it wakes up and it should work.

Make sure your device has "Enable OEM Bootloader Unlocking" enabled in settings.

Plug your device into your computer and turn the device off.
Hold the power and volume up buttons, if it has a menu where reboot to bootloader or fastboot is a option then do that.
Once in fastboot mode on your computer run:
Code:
fastboot oem key KEY
fastboot oem unlock
Press the volume up button on the phone and it should unlock successfuly.
Once that is done you will need to run:
Code:
fastboot boot TWRP.img
Note that you should NOT flash twrp yet as it will give "red state" error and prevent your device from booting.

Then once in TWRP if it asks for a password then click cancel. If that doesn't work then press the power button and then press it again so the screen sleeps and wakes up then swipe to unlock and click cancel again.
Swipe to allow modifications then click Advanced and then ADB Sideload and swipe.
Next run
Code:
adb sideload magisk.zip
and it will flash magisk.
Magisk will provide root and patch the bootloader so it will still boot past the "orange state" screen.
Next go back twice and click Reboot and then Bootloader.
Then on your computer run
Code:
fastboot flash recovery TWRP.img
That will now flash TWRP.
The reason you need to flash TWRP after you have flashed magisk is because magisk is required to patch the bootloader so that it will actualy boot.

Then run
Code:
fastboot reboot
and you should eventualy reboot to android, give it about 30mins to boot just to be safe.

Then install Magisk Manager from
Code:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445
.

You should now have a working rooted Nokia 3 which uses Magisk.

Will this twrp work with a Nokia 2?

has anyone success rooting and install twrp on android 9.0?

Don't do it !!! After rooting TA-1032 Pie 9, camera does not work !!!

Hier is what I did:
$ adb devices
$ adb reboot bootloader
$ fastboot devices
$ echo -n "NE1GXXXXXXXXXXXX" | md5sum | tr a-z A-Z | awk '{print $1}'
$ fastboot oem key YOUR-KEY
# the first time did not accepted
$ fastboot -i 0x2e04 oem key YOUR-KEY
$ fastboot oem key YOUR-KEY
$ fastboot flashing unlock
$ fastboot reboot
# Installed magisk v23.apk
$ fastboot flash boot magisk_patched-23000_7R099.img
$ fastboot reboot

I can confirm that this works on Nokia3 TA-1032, but the problem is the camera.
All you get is green background, if anyone knows hot to fix the green
background, please let me/us know.

Thank you,

    nice guide, did you encounter any crashes like SuperSU or it runs normal without errors?

    Runs flawlessly and doesn't crash or bootloop.
    However if you enable a magisk module which causes a bootloop then you would have to factory reset the device unless /data is decrypted in which case you can just delete the folder the magisk module is located in. I will add to the guide instructions on how to have a decrypted /data partitionlater.

    Any feedback? Does anyone want to pm me and try it safely?

    Don't worry, then next time someone asks about rooting their Nokia 3 I will be sure to point them to this thread, and I like how you described the process. It's very easy to understand. I already have my phone rooted and i'm sticking with my stock recovery because of updates

    I will try this method the next time I get an ota update. Wasn't sure if it was the superSU or the xposed that was causing the errors. After this update i've confirmed it's the SU.
    I've never used magisk before. Hope it won't conflict with xposed
