Hi, I got a situation here. I had to reinstall the rom in my Note 7 Pro after nearly 2 years from teh last time I had to do it.

Unfortunately, I had no idea that the new Magisk version can't be flashed by custom recoveries anymore. I simply flashed my rom using Orange Fox, restarted to the system, used the cell for 2 days, installed everything I needed, and yesterday I downloaded the latest 24310 Magisk version, flashed it using my custom recovery, and restarted in the system again.

Magisk greeted me with a message that it needed extra setup to be fully functional. I restarted in recovery, nothing happened, restarted to system, Maghisk still stuck in the need extra setup to be functional. I resolved to uninstall it using the app, got an error message in the console, tried restoring images, another error. Tried to reboot to recovery to try to reflash magisk, no more recovey, gone. Used adb to reflash recovery, rebooted to it, now I have a message that says Error opening: 'data/adb/magisk' (operation not permitted). Tried to use the Orange Fox option to remove Magisk, got some error messages Error opening: 'data/adb/magisk' (operation not permitted), but it said it was done. Tried to reboot, stuck in boot loop, back in recovery, dirty flashed my actual ROM, still stuck in boot load.

Any way to delete this locked magisk folder to try to completely remove magisk and try to reinstall it the correct way now? Or the only solution is a complete reinstallation of the ROM formatting all partitions? I haven't tried it yet because after 2 years of doing this procedure I barely remember how to do a clean install correctly.

Reflash the stock unrooted boot.img of your room in bootloader. Use adb
Fastboot flash boot boot.img

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
Similar problem here...

I tried reflashing stock recovery and stock boot.img - now whenever I reboot it just boots into recovery! I don't seem to be able to boot into system any more...

Any ideas?

I'm running AOSIP on a Xiami Mix Mi 3 - I hadn't updated to the latest Magisk in quite some time (since before the app could do it automatically). I have to use the recovery method.

Steps I took are:

Get recovery.zip from my ROM, patched it through the app, then flashed through fastboot. I rebooted while holding down the up arrow to reboot into recovery, then released for the phone to boot.

I got an error after booting that said "there's an internal error with your device" - and it was super buggy, couldn't tap the screen, super slow to load stuff, etc.... I figured it was a magisk issue, so tried to reflash recovery and boot... Not I'm stuck booting into recovery!

Help.

Edit: so - I think it turns out I have one of those RARE xiaomi devices that DOES have ramdisk even though the app doesn't detect it... Go figure. A clean install of the ROM, followed by patching the BOOT image rather than the recovery image - and we're up and running.
