This recovery works greatly on my a20e. Everything works well. MTP is still bit buggy.:D
P.S. What is "Have you lost something?" on the top of recovery menu?

Great job man! Now I can backup/restore on my a20e (SM-A202F/DS) no decryption issues, magisk works just fine on stock ROM. I still can't get to flash any custom ROMs from recovery, tried with combinations of Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt_03.04.2020.zip and GSI_Fix_boot.zip also, but I get some mount error, and the no OS installed warning when rebooting After that, I can only do wipes, reboot to recovery, format, then I can try to flash ROMs again

The only ROM I was able to flash was an AOSP, but was using the TWRP guide for a20e, with no fox recovery. Don't know if is related to my phone model, all I do from scratch is:

Flash stock ROM with Odin (bootloader already unlocked)
Boot Android q, finish setup and enable USB debug.
Turn off the phone and boot into recovery

Sorry but I don't know how to proceed, I'm using stock ROM and using fox recovery, what I have to do next? I gave a try flashing UltimateQ_s21_port_V9, but get stuck with no errors, maybe some magisk conflict with the magisk present in the recovery? It was the last line in the log. Maybe I'm flashing things in wrong order, or I need some specific file/tweak for my device. I get a lot of errors about vendor when flashing or mounting, when I start from scratch, I flash stock ROM with Odin, and I flash all the sections, including home, then I flash recovery with Odin.

I tried TWRP 3.4 by @Topser99 worked fine, then flashed Orange Fox on top in case of compatibility issues with backup's. Now backup starts with no errors but get stuck during process, also happened the same installing Ultimate Q S21, V3 and V9. I was able to install AOSP V10 and V11, I just had to wipe only caches data and system, then flash the ROM without flashing any other file

I'm going to run some other test with other TWRP's, I still have some issues with Magisk, with a Superuser app prompt saying the app is obsolete, but can't update with Google Play Store. But roots seems to work fine, just the notification is a little boring

I can't believe to see running the latest treble available (11) on my device, using the GO version with little Google on it for low RAM devices. Still don't know what ROM to use for daily basis, is Android 11 stable for a20e devices, or better stick with V10? Custom ROM's I still wasn't able to flash/boot one, and I'm worried about privacy and lack's of future updates, have you tried some good ROMs?

I tried debloating before messing with ROMs, but then system felt unstable... what can I do, to let things more secure? A bit worried using pay apps on rooted phone.

I just tested your TWRP 3.5, flashed AOSP 11 + backup/restore, everything's works, great job!

Still no luck installing Magisk atm

EDIT: With AOSP V10 Magisk works too!

Keep it for use when you flash your stock.
So I have to flash multidisabler-samsung before flashing ROM?

Edit: I tried to: format-flash multi-disabler-flash AOSP V11 ROM. When I try login to google, play store come black and freeze. I tried Gapps version and Gapps vndklite, same beaviour. Magisk give me some mounting error, after flashing in TWRP

Edit2: It's working! Flashed multidisabler, AOSP V11 (vanilla),NikGapps, fix for Magisk, Magisk 22, and the Magisk apk after reboot.
I had issues flashing anything after flashing ROM step, I had to boot Rom first, then I can continue flashing with no errors
