    How to root Android - Magisk with Odin and TWRP for a Samsung Galaxy

    Android rooting is not a simple mechanism but yet it is not so complicated such as anyone could not understand what is this and how it's done. Anybody can do it with a few kinds of research and a little bit of reading. In this article, I'm going to talk about how to root android using Magisk and TWRP recovery tools. But to do this you should have an android smartphone or a tablet with an unlocked bootloader. Today we are going to use a Samsung Smartphone.

    Wrap Up

    This is called a universal method to root your Samsung Galaxy device. If you have done it correctly and carefully it is not a very complicated process. And even if you did do something wrong it will never brick your device. You just have to reflash the firmware with Odin. But make sure to back up the system before the process. Because it will save you from losing all your data.

    Just skimmed. Nothing egregious stands out. In fact this seems to be the best post with links about rooting on Hofo I can remember.

    Having said that Hofo is NOT a rooting forum & there's zero support for that here. By support I mean there's not dozens of qualified individuals who if asked nicely & they have the time will help.

    So please stop posting this here. This belongs places like XDA Developers, Android Forums, Android Central, etc.

    But posting this here is irresponsible and not considerate.
    If my actions include deeds of philanthropy in charity and acts of loving kindness I am living in my Faith.
