Thank you I finally got it up and running, Just wondering how exactly do install magisk manager to gain root?
Magisk has two components, the core hack(s) and the app. Through the app, install "Magisk". Unless your phone is already rooted, it needs a boot.img to modify and will create a magisk_patched version. Then you boot to bootloader (hold volume down button during bootup), and use fastboot to flash the new boot image. RTFM for more instructions.

I was having issues with the Magisk root using the same method I used on 11.x. Also had issues with the Proton Kernel. Installing either booted to the bootloader instead of booting the OS.
 
on Android 12 (even on aosp), there is some flags that you need to disable, usually done by including the disable flags while flashing (fastboot method) or flashing separately vbmeta after sideload.
if above was not done, if you flashed modified boot.img, it will not boot into the system.

You can get the idea what I meant by reading these posts

Edit:
I freshly installed 12 version of Proton on my P5 - Did it via the online installer with 0 hiccups on my MacBook Pro (2015) - All apps from Google work as intended and my GCAM has been stable throughout. If clearing all google services and reinstalling APKs don't help A fresh install may be your best bet if you rely on your phones' camera. The other option is patience - an update may fix your issue if you do not wish to re-flash

If I install the PORTONAOSP ROM, I'm going to be able to use 5G network .

Currently I use my phone in country that is not in Google list for the support of the 5G.

    How is this done? I'm a bit afraid it'll go wrong and mess up my data..
    Use Google's Android Flash tool and uncheck the wipe data.

    ProtonAOSP
    Android 11 ROM​

    ProtonAOSP is a minimal Android fork (custom ROM) focused on UI/UX and performance, with a touch of privacy.

    Usage with my Proton Kernel is recommended to get the most out of your phone. The ROM does not include Proton Kernel, so you will need to flash it yourself. The ROM will still work with other kernels, but you will not get the benefits of Proton Kernel.

    Screenshots
    Screenshots of the latest version

    Installation
    This ROM is currently distributed as factory images, similar to stock. Flash it the same way you would flash stock factory images. Don't forget to wipe all data using "fastboot -w" before booting the ROM.

    Firmware is included, so there is no specific requirement for which version of the stock ROM you are coming from.

    You can also use the quick & easy web installer, which allows you to install and update the ROM from any computer or phone without using the command line. The installer works entirely within your web browser and completes in as little as 4 minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection. Consider using the web installer instead of installing manually.

    Builds with and without minimal Google services (gapps) included are provided for convenience.

    Using the quick and easy web installer is recommended unless you have a specific reason to download and install the ROM manually.

    A new ROM with the January security update and SafetyNet passing out-of-the-box will be released within a few days. The SafetyNet failures are caused by new updates released by Google yesterday. My new Universal SafetyNet Fix Magisk module solves the problem for now: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/magisk-module-universal-safetynet-fix-1-1-0.4217823/
