Magisk on FP3 with locked bootloader and /e/ recovery

I understand the risks, downsides and upsides of rooting my FP3 with Magisk and I am willing to root it. Do I need to flash a custom recovery and unlock my bootloader if I already have the default /e/ custom recovery installed? Can’t I just go into recovery mode and sideload the Magisk zip file without the need to unlock my bootloader or install any custom recovery?

Any news so far on this one?

The magisk installation have to modify /boot partition, it is impossible on a locked bootloader device.

I tried and it ended in a bootloop into recovery. Although… I installed magisk with a temporary TWRP, since i was aiming to keep the /e/ recovery.

So I unlocked my bootloader and adb sideloaded the Magisk zip through the default /e/ recovery. Worked just fine! Thanks!


But you can’t lock bootloader afterwards, do you?

No. It apparently corrupts the system.
