Dear Great Developers,
I am unable to root the new android phone from Redmi 8A Dual using Magisk 20.4 (20400) and Magisk Manager 7.5.1 (267).
I have tried Patching Boot.img (From official Mi Rom) with latest Magisk Version in normal mode and recovery mode too. But there is no success. The weird part is the TWRP 3.3.1 is also not giving any kind of error. Process Completes Successfully without any error but after rebooting in normal mode, Magisk Manager is showing no Magisk is installed. Bootloader is unlocked. MIUI 11.0.6.0 Stable (PCQINXM)
Can you give link to twrp ? Please
