I've tried to root my phone using magisk, miui 11(9.12.19 - android 10), but cannot root it. I clicked install and there were 2 options to choose: 1.Downlaod zip only 2.patch boot image file and there was no direct install (recommended) as in android 9. When I tried to root it by adb my phone got bootloop and when I tried to patch a boot file the phone turns on and after 10seconds the screen has turned off (blackscreen). Please help.

Hmm, the usual way is to flash the zip via recovery... (twrp), if you don't have a custom recovery, just boot one by Fastboot and flash magisk from there.

Sorry I forgot to mention that I also tried it through twrp but when I boot the phone only the mi logo is loading and nothing happens (probably bootloop).. I also tried to boot another recovery and it worked(it is strange to me because how can one recovery work and another not, never mind) but when the phone turned on, I started magisk and it says magisk is not installed so I dont have root access again.

You need to clear data and disable force encrypt before you flash magisk in twrp. You can find this option under the advanced tab in twrp. Also make sure you have the correct magisk zip for your ROM.


For easy root you can download and flash the custom ******** version of the ROM with magisk root built in to the ROM.

For my mi 8 lite some module in magisk caused boot loop. You can check by enable core only mode in magisk(I try with orange fox's magisk option) before flashing boot.img.
