I couldn't find any simple instructions for rooting so hopefully this helps someone.

I'm assuming you've already unlocked your bootloader. If not, download the deep testing app (there are various apks on xda e.g. from here). Then submit the application (it took me a few minutes to get approved) then use the app to reboot into the bootloader, then run command fastboot flashing unlock. I don't believe the deep testing app works on android 12 yet so you may have to downgrade to android 11 to unlock your bootloader.

If your bootloader is unlocked you can update to android 12 (though it isn't necessary to root). If your gt isn't offering you the latest version you can download a recent version on this thread and then use "local install" in the update menu.

Next, download twrp from:
https://github.com/qiurigao/RMX2202
The latest version is twrp-3.6.0-V2.img

And download magisk from:
https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases
The latest version is Magisk-v24.3.apk

Put your gt into fastboot mode by powering off, then hold the power and volume down buttons together until you're in the fastboot screen.
Then run command:
fastboot boot "twrp-3.6.0-V2.img"
Do NOT try installing twrp as I've read it can cause issues.
This should boot twrp (it will be in chinese but it doesn't matter).
Rename the magisk apk to a zip e.g. Magisk-v24.3.zip
Now run:
adb push Magisk-v24.3.zip /data/Magisk-v24.3.zip
Then:
adb shell "twrp install /data/Magisk-v24.3.zip"
Now you can adb reboot and you should be rooted!
Good luck.

Look in Magisk settings, enable Zygisk (beta), enable enforce denylist, add apps to the denylist then install universal safetynet fix module from github and reboot device.

Thanks, this worked!

Also, really DO NOT install Magisk by clicking on "Install" in the TWRP interface, it can brick the device. Just don't touch the phone while installing Magisk, only use the fastboot and adb commands.

    still working on last update?
    Yes, absolutely. It will work in Android 12 no matter how many updates you'll get. But will not work in Android 13.
