  1. Hello, I successfully unlocked my bootloader + installed TWRP. However internal storage seems to show 0 MB and is unable to mount. Changing file system to anything and then back to ext4 seems to fix it, however I can’t seem to find magisk/ or any other file. If I reboot my device, TWRP is overwritten. Any tips?

      1. That’s what I’m trying to do. I did that before flashing TWRP but when I go in TWRP, there’s this 0 MB error (not mounted) that can be resolved by changing filesystem temporarily, however it seems like the phone is wiped clean at that point, so there’s no supersu/magisk anymore. My computer doesn’t recognize the phone when it’s in recovery to re-transfer it. If I reboot from TWRP, the stock recovery will replace it since I couldn’t flash a root zip. Do you think it could work if I inserted an SD card with a flashable root file?
        If so, will TWRP recognize the SD card immediately? Thanks

        1. Edit: I used an SD to flash supersu/magisk and it flashed with no errors. However no sign of root. TWRP is now patched and is the main recovery though, so that’s progress. I also tried flashing a patched boot image (magisk) in fastboot but that didn’t work either.

  2. Hello from Germany!
    Thank you for your detailed help!
    I have already rooted various smartphones, but unfortunately it does not work with the F1 !?

    I tried to unblock the Booloader via ADB, here I get an error message that the access to the bootloader is not possible, it is encrypted!
    Also a change with an over magisk created patched boot.img with the Flashtool is broken off with the transfer!

    Do you have a tip for me?

    best regards
    Gerald Kellner
