  1. good evening.
    I have tried six times so far and failed.
    If you could make a fixed video as it is installed. I would be grateful.
    Thank you.

    • We mentioned earlier on this post; To do this, you must flash the patched firmware. If you flash TWRP directly, It won’t work.

  2. The procedure isn’t clearly outlined. Do I flash the modified TWRP file through the BL button or the AP button? Or do I have to flash the whole firmware and exchange the stock BL with the modified tar file? At first, it says how to flash TWRP, but in the screenshot, I see all tabs filled. Thx

    • The process contains two parts. First, you have to flash the modified magisk patched firmware file using ODIN. After that, you can use the AP to flash the TWRP using ODIN. The image is an example of how Odin will look like.

  3. Hello
    I don’t understand the use of “,” can you explain why we should use that, please?
    Thank you in advance,
