  1. Hey, Man. If I just missed the part with saving Magisk in my phone memory, what can I do more? The phone doesn’t start anymore; I can access only the downloading mode…

    • Es posible que el método no funcione con los dispositivos de Verizon, ya que tiene un cargador de arranque bloqueado.

  2. I made the same mistake as Marius did. I forgot to download Magisk on the phone before installing TWRP. I can connect my phone to the PC. However, TWRP cannot find the Magisk file. Can you help?

  3. Ok. Got everything to work. I rebooted my phone to get it to be recognized by the PC again. I downloaded the magisk zip file to the ‘download’ folder on my phone. In TWRP, the ‘download’ folder is under data > sdcard (for Samsung S6+). I hope that helps anyone who made the same mistake as I did.
