Thanks Raygen, I will try to flash magisk into the phone this way then! If it doesn't work, I'll flash TWRP before.


I can indeed shut it down with power + vol+. The 3 buttons at the same time I haven't tried yet, but I already packed this one and asked Amazon for a new one, so better not screw with this one anymore. But the tip might be handy with the new phone.


With the phone connected via USB cable I can't even shut it down and the boot loop goes on indefinitely. Again, I have not tried with the 3 buttons.

Perfect, thank you! I'll keep you posted when I have an update.
@Raygen, I promised to update you, so there you go:
I managed to do everything right on the new phone, and had root, afwall running, beautiful. But it turns out there's no way (at least that I found) to successfully hide magisk from the bank apps, so I ended up relocking the bootloader (I posted how). Anyway, I'd like to thank you for your help! Cheers

Nice to hear!
For Magisk I usually use this module, works well for all my banking apps.

When you first time boots twrp do one thing directly falsh magisk before rooting and then wipe data and reboot.
For magisk download magisk apk file and rename it as. Zip file and then flash.
If u can't able to access internal aftwr falshing twrp use otg and then falsh that magisk

Done. The trick was to rename the apk to zip..
I was flashing the original zip but an error come up, after rename the apk to zip, magisk(root) done.

If i want to enter in recovery can i with vol down+power or only via adb->fastboot?
The recovery will be twrp or the original?

Sooo.. I think I messed up somewhere.. I managed to do all the steps but when I try to transfer files onto the phone I just get an empty transfer window and nothing ends up on phone storage..

If I check properties in explorer it just says "unknown" in used space..

You don't need to root the device to install custom roms and it will not break ur safety net if u r using PE latest build available in development section

1)detect adb devices:
adb devices

2)Reboot to bootloader mode:
adb reboot bootloader

3)To detect FASTBOOT devices:
fastboot devices

4)To OEM unlock:
fastboot flashing unlock

5)To flash Vbmeta image:
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

6) flash twrp image:
fastboot flash recovery recoveryname.img

7)Reboot from FASTBOOT mode to recovery:
fastboot reboot recovery

If you have any issue follow this tutorial correctly
Thank you! I followed the guide and got my device rooted without any issues (TWRP 3.6.0 and Magisk 24.3). Seems to be stable so far. (y)


Maybe you could add these two points to your guide? They seem to be missing and might help others to make the process easier for them.

  • Between step 4 and 5 there should be an additional step that indicates the following:
    • Reboot the stystem with 'fastboot reboot'.
    • Load magisk-vXX.X.zip onto the phone (it simply can be downloaded from the official source and renamed from .apk to .zip).
    • Reboot into bootloader with 'adb reboot bootloader', to continue with step 5.

  • After step 7 there should be one last step:
    • After TWRP has loaded, click on 'install' and select magisk-vXX.X.zip, which you previously loaded onto the phone.
    • Confirm to flash magisk-vXX.X.zip, then reboot the system.

    Hi Tomasz,

    Like you I stay on OOS 11 A_20, because I like it and don't have time to test new ROMs although I see few good ones. There is a GCam builds which work well, too. I cannot compare since I'm not heavy photo user.

    Yes, stock recovery and patched with magisk boot.img will keep root without bootloop.

    I share the excellent link to @Giovix92 notes about Nord 2 5G.


    Hope helped. Cheers.

    I don't even know how to thank you for this information that the behavior of stock recovery and magisk no longer causes a bootloop :) because the mass memory has already been unmounted (reason) Thank you for the link, I will definitely read it and look at it, and now I did it so that having root, I simply flashed stock recovery_a20 from the system position through the flashify application and I hope that I will not catch the bootloop as you said and with this information you saved me a lot of stress and nerves related to it. I understand that you are also on a20 with stock recovery and magisk for a long time and have not had this unpleasant case of bootloop even once? It's probably the case that during one of the bootups, the phone recognizes twrp custom and not stock, so it doesn't move, am I right?
    Postscript after later attempts. In fact :) I ran it 9 times on stock recovery, actually zero bootloop🙂. Thank you my friend for your reply with information. All the best 🙂

    Patched boot image flashing replace u r stock boot imge and this twrp fashing of magisk also patches the stock boot image.
    Nothing different
    Just a little correction: it is, in fact, different.
    By patching the boot.img, you'll avoid (as expected) flashing the magisk zip, that avoids permanent TWRP and other patches applied to the system directly. It's not only a boot.img matter, it's a general OS matter. Also, reduces the risk of boot failing since recovery stays fully stock at every reboot*. One thing less to care about.

    Since it is kown that oplus likes to stop booting whenever root is available (hey there OPLUS_ROOT_CHECK), patched boot.img is the only safest way to root it, as of now. No bootloops, no problems.

    * Note: this happens because, if the recovery is different and there isn't any patch for stopping this process, it'll get overwritten at boot with the stock recovery present into /system. Magisk tends to patch this process in order to NOT overwrite it.

    This worked great! Only problem I had was unlocking the bootloader and flashing TWRP without booting up caused the stock recovery to overwrite it again for some reason. After repeating the steps after unlocking it worked. Also, if you have the same problem as me with Magisk being unable to bypass the safety net, try this:

    I wish I found this before I sunk hours into learning what build prop editing is :p

    Worked like a charm on a DN2103 OxygenOS v11.3 phone.
