I tried it many times. After flashing Magisk from orange fox I tap on reboot and it always shows me this boot/recovery corrupt message and didn't start. Can anyone help me?
My boot partition was corrupted when I installed Magisk also. I installed from ADB after extracting stock boot.img and patching it with Magisk, then flashed patched.img with ADB,. There were no warnings and flashing had no errors.
I had to flash stock ROM to boot again.
My only guess would be to try flashing newer versions of Magisk. Hope we can get help

I have seen another rooting method with ADB and the patched boot image BUT that method first flashes vbmeta.img before flashing the patched boot.img.
Perhaps that is why my boot partition was corrupted because I just flashed the patched boot.img.
Has anyone had success with this rooting method on a Realme 6 pro ?
