1 - It doesn't matter which method you use, with rooted device of course.Two more questions still open for me:
1. So if I aldready have Magisk installed (in boot and not in recovery) without TWRP, then it does not matter if I
- install TWRP using App Install Method
- install TWRP using Odin Install Method
2. Is it then still necessary to Format data and flash multidisabler & dm-verity disabler?
You can't access internal storage in the TWRP environment. Internal storage is located on the /data (userdata) partition and OS reformats it with encryption, thus later TWRP is unable to mount it as normal ext4. Dm-verity script should force OS to use unencrypted partition but is doesn't happen for a while.
The new FS the new problems...
Hello TheDrive, isn't my (or twrp) fault if you formatted userdata as EXT4 and didn't proceed correctly with the installation. Sorry. Please, format userdata to F2FS and redo the installation process.The new FS the new problems...
And how to backup/restore with userdata from TWRP if the partition can not be mounted? How to work with the particular files using ADB (in TWRP)?
When I do format userdata in TWRP it mounts userdata OK and after reboot to TWRP it mounts userdata OK again, but once I try to boot OS userdata can not be mounted next time I reboot to TWRP. OS makes some changes to the userdata format that prevent it to be mounted in TWRP. I assume it reformats it with encryption.
There are a few reasons to use TWRP since we couldn't maintain any user data...
I've reflashed my device with the same A525FXXU1AUC4 full FW by Odin (incl. BL, AP, etc...)Hello weazl, how are you? The way of installing Magisk from TeamWin Docs is a prebuilt and common way for all Samsung devices, discard this installation form (TeamWin/Magisk Docs) for A52/A72. You can reproduce the Magisk installation like this:
1 - Install TWRP
2 - Format data, flash multidisabler & dm-verity disaber then reboot to recovery
3 - Flash Magisk, format cache/dalvik/data/internal storage.
4 - Reboot to System
They do not have one yet for the 5G model, any updates or news from them?
No, you can simply install magisk after installing twrp. Rooting before flashing twrp is not necessary.
