In this article, we will be showing you how to root the entire series of The Samsung Galaxy S22 using Magisk Manager. Before we can begin, we need to do some things ahead of time such as we need to unlock the bootloader first to proceed with the tutorial.
We have already written tutorials in which we have given a step-by-step guide on how to unlock the bootloader of Samsung Galaxy devices. You can check that tutorial if you don’t know how to unlock the bootloader on this device.
This tutorial will work for the base model of the Samsung Galaxy S22 as well as the Galaxy S22 Plus and the Galaxy S22 ultra and the upcoming Galaxy S22 FE. The main requirement here is that you must have the bootloader unlocked first and we also need to install Magisk on our phone which can be downloaded via GitHub.
Also, we need to have Odin installed on our PC and then we need to download a copy of the firmware we are currently running on our Samsung Galaxy S22. We have to download the firmware file to our PC so that it can be extracted. Again, for anybody who is not familiar with any of this, like maybe you do not know where the GitHub page is for Magisk or maybe you do not know where to download Odin, just watch our previous tutorial.
We downloaded the firmware for our Samsung Galaxy S22 from the website samfw.com. Next up we have taken that firmware file we just downloaded and we have extracted the contents of this file which gave us five files.
Follow the steps below to root your Samsung Galaxy S22 using Magisk:
Step 1: Copy the file that starts with “AP” from the files that you extracted to your device’s internal storage.
Step 2: Open the Magisk Manager app that you downloaded from GitHub. Tap on the Install button at the top Magisk section. Choose the “Select and Patch a file”, browse and select that AP file you just copied on your device’s internal storage.
Step 3: Once you selected that AP file, tap on the “Let’s Go” button at the top. Magisk is going to patch that file and give us a new file with the name “Magisk_patched”.
Step 4: When the process is done, boot your device in the Download Mode and connect it to your PC through a USB cable.
Step 5: Open Odin on your PC while you have your device in download mode and connected to the PC.
Step 6: In Odin, click on the Bl button and select the file that starts with the Bl from the files that you extracted earlier. Then click on the CP button and select the file that starts with CP. Similarly, click on the CSC button and select the file that starts with the CSC name. Lastly, click on the AP button and select that Magsik_Patched file. It is that AP file that you patched using Magisk.
Step 7: After you load all the four files in Odin, click the start button at the bottom to start the process. The process will take some time so just wait and be patient. You will see a green Pass message at the top when the process is completed and you will see that your device will restart on it’s own.
Step 8: Set up your device like you normally do.
That’s it. You have rooted your Samsung Galaxy S22 device using Magisk. You can check it by downloading the root checker app from the play store. Using the same method, you can also root Galaxy S22 Plus and S22 Ultra devices as well.
