    Okay, so I completed the whole process, here are my observations:

    The method provided above almost works. The problem is, that everytime you reboot to system when you are not rooted, TWRP will encrypt your files. So the solution is, that you have to format data and then install dm_verity and Magisk after each other, without a reboot! After that, you can boot to your system and set up your phone.

    I did what you said but still encrypts after reboot. Latest Magisk.

    Could someone tell me if it is compatible with the November update CTK1?

    I have managed to root the phone, you can install everything and configure it, but after turning off the phone, I can't start it does bootloop, and it returns to the prompt "The phone is not running Smasung official software ..." never finishes starting? What do you recommend me to do?

    I reloaded the original rom and did the procedure again, taking into account the clarification of installing install dm_verity and Magisk after each other, without a reboot, and everything went well!

    Hello abraxasboot !
    So,for you ,the only problem was that U had to flash the files one after the other without rebooting ?
    No other problem since that ?
    Is the phone reacting well ?
    Where did U find the official rom ?
    Thanks and have a good day !

    I was unable to flash and reboot into TWRP recovery after applying the official Samsung update from March, which updates Android from 10 to 11. Reboot into recovery would not work and I would always end in a boot loop.

    I had to downgrade to Samsung's official Android 10 and used the binaries from January for that: https://samfrew.com/es/model/SM-A515F

    After that, flashed TWRP again and was able to boot into recovery right away as it should be :)
