Is it mandatory to use twrp to flash Magisk. Can it be flashed using fastboot

  • you probably can't flash magisk with fastboot you must have twrp installed or any other custom recovery.. Thanks.. Feb 18 '20 at 11:11

You probably meant fastboot mode.

And no, Magisk cannot be flashed using Fastboot mode. It is a zip file and not an image file that you can just flash to a partition. If you want to use fastboot, you should consider patching your boot image using Magisk Manager and then boot that image using fastboot boot command.

fastboot boot magisk-patched.img

Or if you are sure you have the correct boot image, you can flash the patched image too:

fastboot flash boot magisk-patched.img
  • Thanks. Fixed typo. Magisk Manager is a apk file. How to use Magsik Manager to rewrite the boot image on a non-rooted phone while i am trying to root the mobile using Magisk. Oct 8 '19 at 9:10

    You need the stock boot image. Then you can use Magisk Manager to inject Magisk into the boot image. And then flash/boot the image which will load magisk init commands when the device starts up.
