[TWRP][Root] Unofficial TWRP 3.5.0 Android 11 for Galaxy A50

I have an A505FN. My experience so far:

I followed the guide but installed multidisabler 3.1, not 2.6.

It first seemed like I was stuck in boot, but it turned out that apparently that only happens if I do what the bootloader warning screen tells me and press the power button. If I do nothing it boots normally. Still weird.

Everything seemed in order until I tried installing Riru through Magisk.

After rebooting I could no longer unlock my phone. Entering my pattern just led to the screen going black and then returning to the lock screen. This persists after rebooting.

What's more, I cannot boot into Recovery either. That's seemingly because of the unlocked bootloader. The warning actually prevents the phone from being shut off, somehow, because seemingly the phone immediately reboots to show me the warning again. It also blocks the recovery button combo. Timing doesn't seem to matter, it just ignores it.

This is the first time I'm trying to root this phone and it's a mess. Much worse than my A5, which at least has the decency of behaving the same during boot even when modified. It's like Samsung is constantly looking for new ways to mess with rooters.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?
flash pass reset or manually delete locksettings.db in /data/system

Thanks. I found out that in order to boot into recovery on recent firmware, the phone needs to be connected to a PC.

Yare yare.

I tried following the instructions in the OP again, but after flashing TWRP+Magisk and multidisabler, and rebooting, Magisk isn't detected by the Magisk app. It says "N/A".

Edit: Nevermind I forgot a step.

Also looks like a lot of my issues were caused by not realizing that the OS has to be launched every time in a special way to enable Magisk. Like you have to select reboot to recovery in Magisk to launch the system with Magisk enabled.

I successfully installed on SM-A505F and works perfectly without any extra installs on Android 11

How can you reboot to non root mode? Device not booting in non root mode.
