Fix Magisk Module Bootloop without TWRP Recovery [Video]

In this tutorial, we will show you how to fix the Magisk Module bootloop without using TWRP Recovery. One of the biggest advantages of an open-source platform is the plentitude of customizations that it brings in with itself. First and foremost, you have to unlock the device’s bootloader. After this, you could literally try out a plethora of tweaks and modifications. These include flashing a custom ROM, installing a custom recovery like TWRP, or everyone’s favorite- gaining root access. The latter gives you administrative rights and gives you access to the /system partition.

You could then install tons of mods, Substratum Themes, flashable ZIPs, IMG files, and even a custom kernel. Along the same lines, you could even install Magisk Modules and Xposed Frameworks. Xposed was the go-to app for the modders a couple of years back. But since the introduction of Magisk, it has quickly overthrown the framework. The availability of plenty of modules, their ability to carry out impressive tweaks, and the ease of installation of these modules all have lead to the rise of the Magisk Module.

However, all these come with some uninvited guests, aka risks. Among them, the most common issue is the device going into a bootloop after flashing a module. It could happen for a wide variety of reasons, like flashing a module that isn’t made for your device’s API level (Android version), or if you have flashed an OEM specific module that wasn’t supported by your device (like flashing a Pixel only module onto a Samsung device). Fortunately for all these issues, there exists a simple fix and this guide will outline just that. Today, we will show you how to fix the Magisk Module bootloop without using TWRP Recovery. Follow along.
