Problems. Will only boot into recovery....
I must admit that I just did a standard wipe initially. I did not wipe vendor or system. I repeated the correct steps but still no go. The phone a Realme5 had the latest updates and was unencrypted.

Any help would be appreciated.

Format /data from Wipe section (not Wipe)
Or Flash dfe to bypass to encryption and make sure you're using latest realme ui firmware

Fixed! Just needed a format of data. Thank you very much.
And thanks for a really nice ROM. Its so clean after the horrible bloated Realme UI.
Might I also ask what is the preferred method of installing Magisk?

Once again Thanks.....

I'd like to root this phone using Magisk. Can anyone advise about the correct working method?

I was going to flash Magisk 23 in the usual fashion (using TWRP) but my understanding is that the preferred method is to flash a Magisk patched recovery.image file. I had problems finding a recovery.image file. I got the stock ROM but I came up against the ofp file archive and could not access the recovery file. Also I could not find the recovery.image file in the crDroid custom ROM.

I was just going to try various things...... But then I decided to ask!

Just flash magisk normally.
