    • You flashed TWRP Correctly, So you know about flash. I think you already figured out the solution. But if you didn’t, follow the below answers.
      1. Did you flash correct TWRP based on your firmware?
      2. Long Press Power Button 15-30 Seconds to completely turn off your device. And again don’t boot normal Boot. This time again boot into recovery. Before flashing Magisk, clear cache in TWRP.
      3. If none of them works, leave phone until battery drain and flash stock firmware to return to your device.

        • Ok. Understand your situation. I think some glitch happened during the first boot, or you urged the first boot without giving time. The first boot will take some time.
          Don’t panic; Sometimes it can happen during TWRP flash, As we tested three times, one time we got this issue. You can flash stock firmware using ODIN to get back to your device.
          After everything get back correctly, If you again want to TWRP, please care and choose correct TWRP based on your firmware.

        • Hi, I’m in the same situation as the others – I was able to get into TWRP the first time, but it froze, so I restarted.

          After which, I can only boot to a) the Samsung screen with the yellow triangle (“The phone is not running Samsung’s official software. etc etc”), and b) the download mode.

          When I enter b) and flash AP_TWRP_GALAXY_A50_Stable_ASC1_V2 (the appropriate firmware for my phone) via Odin v3.13, Odin shows the “PASS!” in a green box, and a green bar below it. The device remains in “Downloading… Do not turn off target”, and the white bar below it is almost full, but not full.

          Doing VolUp+Power does nothing, and VolDown+Power reboots it to the state described in a). I’m not able to boot into TWRP other than the first time, where it hangs/crashes and nothing can be done.

          Do advise
