Yeah im staying on 11 rooted for now as I need root for a ton of stuff.
Ive tried that before but it fails. Ive been told it fails because I need to temporarily restore stock boot by uninstalling magisk and restoring before a restart so it can pass whatever checksum validation its failing at.
The problem (I think) is that I have TWRP installed. So when i restore from Magisk, I think it restores the non rooted "twrp'd" boot image, thus still non stock, causing it to fail the same way. Ive been trying to get confirmation that this is the problem, but cant seem to.
*Once I get a better "feel" of this phone, Ill restore stock totally and try that. If you or anyone can confirm or deny that issue above, it would be immensely appreciated.
**Could having TWRP hard installed before patching for root, be the entire problem?
