Well. can install magisk and twrp, but with an alternative method,
I dowload firmware region ZTO android 10 with samfirm , my phone is A105M. Extract the firmware and path AP file with magisk manager
I use magisk_patched.tar, open with 7zip, delete recovery.img(stock recovery) and add recovery.img(afaneh92's twrp) in the archive patcher, now open ODIN and install (extract you firmware downloaded).
AP->magisk_patcher.tar, BL->BL, CP->CP and CSC->CSC
And install magisk from magisk manager

I have error with 16 gb memory, i fix this, entry in the twrp and click on factory default and fixed.

Hello all.

I've been trying to root my a10s for a while with no success.

I can't unlock bootloader. I've followed all instructions but it just won't work.

When I press the volume up button (after the warning screen) expecting to see the unlock bootloader screen, the phone restarts itself.

There is also a PC method that has been recommended using adb fastboot. that too hasn't worked. My phone is never captured as a fadtboot device

As a result, I can't make progress. I feel stuck.

So i tried using afaneh92's tutorial which will be linked here : https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a10/how-to/magisk-root-galaxy-a10-series-t3963822
Which lead to me bootlooping or softbricking and my storage was reduced from 32 gb to 16Gb so i decided to work on my own method!

If you have issues during the process send it in the comment ill try to respond as fast as i can!:)

Are you on Android 10? What is your device model?

    2.Any small mistake and your phone is bricked/bootlooped!
    3.All of your data will be lost so back it up somewhere

    (Fixed the tutorial my bad.)

    Hey Guys Im Back! Thank you for the support and how it blew up. I have tested this on Android 10 UI 2.0 and it works better then ever!
    Also installed lineage os : https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a10/development/rom-lineage-os-a10-a105f-t4078093

    So i tried using afaneh92's tutorial which will be linked here : https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a10/how-to/magisk-root-galaxy-a10-series-t3963822
    Which lead to me bootlooping or softbricking and my storage was reduced from 32 gb to 16Gb so i decided to work on my own method!

    Credits go to afaneh92 for the Twrp!

    BEFORE YOU START YOU SHOULD HAVE
    1.Samsung Drivers installed
    2.Odin Installed
    3.7zip Installed
    4.A data transfer cable
    5.A Proper working brain
    If you have all of those lets start!

    A: Phone settings
    1.Go in settings>about phone>software information>build number tap that 5 times until it says "You are a developer now" then you will have Developer options unlocked
    2.Then go in developer functions and find OEM unlocking tick that on scroll down until you see Usb Debugging and tick that also Disable Auto Updates option


    B: Download TWRP and 2 other important files
    1.Dial *#1234# and it will show the AP and some others, focus on AP paste it on google and get the download for it
    2.After downloaded move the AP to your download folder in your android device
    3.You will get a magisk_patched.tar after its been offically converted
    4.Get the twrp for a10
    Download the twrp file here : https://mega.nz/#!OU1WhSDZ!vQz5K1wpqBhg0hCD59aziaHPxFlUsT_2WG8SgT8p6iY
    5.After you got everything open the .tar archive and extract vbmeta.img, boot.img and you should already have recovery.img on your Desktop
    6.Grab all the 3 .img files and archive them into a .tar using 7zip, Now continue to step C,

    C :Unlocking The Bootloader and Getting Into Download Mode (THE PART WHERE YOU RESET YOUR PHONE)
    1.Turn Off your phone
    1.2.Put your data cable into your PC(dont connect your phone to it yet)
    1.3.Hold Volume Up and Down then insert the cable into your phone
    1.4.When you see a bluescreen let go
    1.5.Hold vol up until you see another screen then let go for 1 second and hold vol up again
    2.Your device will reset itself and reboot
    2.1.After the device has booted in into the setup take the cable out after Turn off your phone
    2.2.Hold Vol Up and Down again and connect the cable
    2.3.Let go when a blue screen appears then press vol up until you are in download mode


    D: Flashing TWRP
    1.Open Odin
    2.Press on AP then find Desktop.tar and press open
    3.Press start and let it do its thing
    4.After your Phone has rebooted you oficially have TWRP installed
    5.If you want to know hoe to root go to step E


    E: Installing Magisk
    Since magisk is counted as the best rooting option rn i will be using it in this tutorial(Sorry supersu fans)
    1.Install Magisk Manager
    2.Press on Install (first one) then press install again and after that press Install Zip Only
    3.Then go into Twrp by doing the steps below
    3.1.Turn off your device
    3.2.Hold vol up and power button untill you see TWRP logo
    4.Press install
    4.1.Find magisk-v20.4(20400).zip
    4.2Swipe right on the bottom to flash it then press reboot system now.
    5.Now you have TWRP,Root and Magisk Congratulations!


    What happens if something goes wrong.
    1.SV Error Device 1 library 0 - You installed the wrong firmware look for the right firmware.To check go in recovery mode and look at the A105XXXXXX and then look for a download. Remider AP->AP BL->BL CP->CP HOME_CSC->CSC
    2.vbmeta.img error - you have the wrong vbmeta.img file. Redownload the original firmware and take out the right vbmeta.img next time you try flashing. Reminder AP->AP BL->BL CP->CP HOME_CSC->CSC
    3.A blue screen telling you to use samsung switch emergency update. That wont work so just flash the original firmware and try flashing twrp again.
    4.When i try to boot in it gets me into TWRP - Thats just because that your data is corrupted and to fix it while in TWRP mode press wipe then swipe after its done press Reboot To System. That should be a fix
    5.My internal storage is just full of weird numbers and I can't download anything on it! Go in TWRP then wipe,press advanced wipe, click on internal storage and data, swipe. That should fix the error
    6.Boootlooping or Bricked! Installed corrupted firmware or the recovery was f-ed up. Then install the right firmware and redo the steps!


    If you have issues during the process send it in the comment ill try to respond as fast as i can!:)

    All sorted now, back on stock with twrp and root:) It was a schoolboy error by me, the firmware downloaded was corrupted lol.

    Oh! Im happy to hear that! :D

    Could you also tell me from where have you downloaded the corrupted firmware so i can warn the others?

    The corruption was my side, I was using a download manager, but when I downloaded through chrome it was all good. As I said, schoolboy error on my part for not checking md5. I used sammobile site for the firmware.
