The first method we are sharing is the one that uses Magisk Manager to remove Magisk Modules in TWRP Recovery to fix bootloop. We are here using the ‘Magisk Manager for Recovery Mode‘ mod by XDA member VR25.

  • To begin with, boot your Android phone into TWRP recovery.

  • With the help of USB Cables, connect your device to the PC.
  • Then download the latest ‘Magisk Manager for Recovery Mode’ mod zip file from here.
  • Now copy this downloaded file to the internal storage of your device.
  • After you have copied this file to the device storage, you can then disconnect your device from the PC.
  • Now go to TWRP main screen and click on ‘Install‘.
  • Then choose the Mod ZIP File and swipe the ‘Swipe to Confirm Flash‘ option so as to install it.
  • When the MOD is installed on your device, in TWRP, go to the ‘Advanced‘ Menu.
  • Choose ‘Terminal’ so as to launch an in-built terminal in TWRP.
  • Enter the below command so as to launch the Magisk Manager interactive shell –
sh /sdcard/mm
  • Then enter ‘r’ so as to list all the install modules for removal.
  • When you have marked the modules that you wish to uninstall, just enter ‘q’ to exit the shell.
  • Lastly, go to TWRP> Reboot and then click on ‘System‘ so as to boot your device.

Once you reboot your device, you will see that the Marked Modules will be totally removed from your device system and your device will boot into the system OS.
