Re: [Tutorial] How To Root Xperia XA2

Hi Hagen, 




Awsome! You can just sideload magisk and that will give you instant root. I've kept mine on android 8 as I'm happy with that and if you flash android 9 yes you'll need to install magisk again. Once you have twrp custom recovery installed you should be good to just install custom android 9 rom with twrp recovery and then just install magisk again to get root #easy#
