    • No. But, If you accidentally deleted System in Cache, It will lead to Data Loss. Also If you bricked your mobile during the process, You would lose data. The root will not delete data. But Backup is the Pre-Caution.

  1. Tell me about the Xposed Framework. Before I use with Magisk Xposed Framework 87.1 By Wanam (Unofficial) Bcoz They, say TouchWiz make Problem with Official. I saw Magisk has his Own Xposed its Beta version. Bcoz last night I Unistall old Xposed and mobile Brick. THEN I flash Stock Firmware.
    Now I am thinking I root again with CF Auto Root.
    Guide me pls.

    • TWRP based method is better compared with CF-Auto-Root. You can use Stable v89.3 or v90.2-beta3. It is somewhat experimental. Because We have to find a suitable version, or You can flash Custom ROM and use regular Xposed Framework.
