Hello,
So my phone was in a recovery boot loop and had to rebuild the boot partition in twrp. So I'm back in my phone now and everything is the same but have lost root. Still have access to twrp. It's been a while since I rooted it and don't have any of the files anymore. What do I need to flash to get root back? Do I need to back up all my data or will it be safe?
I am still running android 9 and oos 9.0.7 and I assume bootloader is still unlocked. Orignally rooted with magisk.
thanks

Damn it, so I booted into twrp and then flashed latest magisk v23 zip but when it finished it said failed to mount partition in red and now the phone just boots to fastboot mode.. I can get back into twrp.. and all my files are still there in file manager.. but it won't boot into my phone.. only fastboot mode. Any advice?
