Hi.
I can confirm that the above method works. You have to unlock your bootloader first.
Go to About phone -> Build number, tap it a few times until you enable Developer options. In there make sure OEM unlocking and USB debugging is enabled.
Reboot to fastboot (VOL- + Power) and type fastboot oem unlock, reboot phone, turn off and start in fastboot mode and execute first post commands.
It works passing SafetyNet once you finish installing latest Magisk.

Good luck.

when installing the magisk manager ? before patching, like any other apk ? also, no need of regular magisk ?

After executing all commands from first post if you check ROOT status it will be OK but SafetyNet will be broken. Then install magisk from inside Magisk Manager, the recommended way and is will pass it.
At least it worked like that for me.
Good luck.

You must unlock your bootloader first. Follow my previous steps.
After that, reboot, you will see an message when booting from Linux system. It's normal.
Follow steps from first post here.
After installing magisk manager, entering fastboot and patching boot image, start the system and after that, install magisk from inside magisk manager.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Here is a easier process if you really want to check if the boot.img is compatible:
First enable OEM Unlock in developer settings
- Reboot to fastboot (volume down + power)
- fastboot oem unlock (won't wipe)
- fastboot boot patched_boot.img
- After Android finishes booting, install Magisk Manager.
- In Magisk Manager, use Install and install the latest Magisk with Direct Install
- Reboot and you're done
