How to Fix Magisk Install Error 1 in TWRP Recovery


What is Magisk?

Magisk is one of the best alternatives to Supersu, developed by ‘topjohnwu’ (an XDA developer). The actual purpose of Magisk is to grant or deny root permission whenever required. The new Magisk app is much better than Supersu. There are certain apps (like banking apps, pokemon go) which cannot be installed on a rooted device. Magisk helps you to install and run all of these applications without any problem.

Magisk has Universal Systemless Interface. It means that you can easily create your own mod app with the help of magisk. Magisk is mostly the same as the Xposed framework which means that you can install various modules and tweaks to your Android device.

    so if you know the way i can fix it pls tell me

    sorry for bad english i dont know tooo much but i can search if there is any solution

    tnx for reading 🙂

    • The easiest way to fix the boot loop error is by flashing the official stock ROM. There are many sites from where you can download the Stock ROM.

      But I would recommend you download the Sock ROM from the official site of SAMSUNG. (Tips: use unofficial Samsung client for faster download, click here)

      And then you have to flash your device by using ODIN or any other software (or method) which you think best.

      After recovery from the Boot loop error, then you can proceed to root your device by using Magisk root.

      Thanks. Happy to help you.

      • hey bro im so glade for that you helping me thank you 🙂

        but i have another problem

        i flash all the android and when install twrp and backup from boot
        to have a clear boot for restore thats get bootloop again -__-

        i want to have a backup to dont let that happens again

        but when i backup that is bootloop men too bad i cant root 🙁

        pls help me again 🙂

        i read some on xda bootloop guide that i have clear cache to get new one

        im going on to testing this but pls help me to fix it all 🙂

    • I have also faced the same kind of problem a year ago when my Samsung galaxy J2 pro was stuck at boot loop.

      What I did?
      Actually, I did not try the hard reset method. I have flashed my J2 pro with official stock ROM by using Samsung ODIN.
      The best thing about it that I did not lose any data (i.e. contacts, images, videos, files, etc.)

      You can try the hard reset method. I would not recommend you (If you do not want to lose your data.) to try hard reset.

      If you still want to use factory hard reset then, first of all, you need to reboot your device in the recovery mode and then wipe data and Dalvik cache.

      • I do some

        I dont know what is hard reset but i install stock rom for 2 or 3 time (first im not get it)

        And that problem not solve so i reset factory and clear cache

        And in the feresh install i put magisk zip on the phone when install twrp

        And get bootloop

        So i install magisk

        Now im good and system set up

        And get a backup from healthy boot

        And now yee baby im rooted with magisk

        Yeeey horaaaa 🙂

        tnx to you men i do this

        But now i dont know how to install xposed or busy box to not get that prpblem again

        I think have to install unoffictial systemless sdk24 xposed for magisk zip

        Not in the magisk manager

        On the twrp

        and last time i install some like safetynet for xposed and magisk to use hide magisk with xposed and that file is not good and crupet and i have another problem with that

        If you now somting about

        Xposed and magisk hide tell me

        Have a great day 🙂

  2. Hi im using havoc 8.1 oreo After install magisk phone restart,power off,advance recovery dosn’t work,how to solve pls give me solution

    • Download the stock firmware of the custom or stock rom and flash it or download it using odin.
      If using odin then install the firmware in your computer and use it through downloading mode
