  1. In your post, you wrote.”don’t turn on your mobile”?

    So, what did you mean with “don’t turn on your mobile”? Was it to boot into TWRP immediately after the flash (don’t boot into the ROM yet), then proceed with magisk and the disabler? Or am I missing something here? I’m planning to root my SM-T819Y (has been updated to Nougat) and want to minimize the bricking risk.

    • When you didn’t flash the Magisk in the first boot, You will lose TWRP. That’s why we are telling not to boot your mobile in the first boot to regular OS.
