Hello, noob when it comes to rooted phones here. I'm interested in getting magisk on my phone and would like to ask about the how to.

I see that from v22 the installation process is updated, but is there any downside to doing it the old custom recovery way? That way just seems much easier/faster compared to patching images with adb and fastboot.
* Full disclosure not really sure what "Starting from v22.0, the Magisk app (renamed from Magisk Manager) includes everything it needs within the APK itself, making installation a 100% offline process." is compared to without custom recovery before.

I have twrp and am currently on eu stable v12.5.10, downloading v12.5.11 as I write this.

Phone is Mi 11 Pro

Thanks!

While somewhat true, most of things, like recording phone calls, theming, dark mode, wifi boosting by doubling band width and even ram/swap files, as well as, many other features that we would root our phones for, are nowadays in stock roms.

Yes many are available, even debloating using adb, still rooting allows you to modify your system without using any PC and take control over it

I'm aware of the things it can still do, but there are many real performance tweaks anymore. Most stock roms are fast and smooth, due to all the ram and faster SoCs and GPUs, so there really isn't a need for overclocking or memory extenders (swap files) and theming with dark mode is available in almost every rom and you can disable any app via ADB, if need be. Not a huge need anymore.

On this I agree, at the beginning I wasn't sure to root it too, but still to debloat systemlessly and run commands with terminal I need it

You can debloat/disable via ADB command's without root. Also the way many phones are configured these days, you can't remove or delete many items within the system partition, thereby limiting your debloat capabilities.

    Thanks yeah that's what I wanted. Just asking for possible downsides since the installation guide on github suggests the patch image method.
    it's all the same flash in twrp there's no downside

    For me no root no party, root a phone is mandatory
