First thing first
#Your warranty gets void.

Why should you root your android phone?
It’s pretty simple! root access will help you do that thing which you cannot do usually.
For example :
Let’s you install amazing sound libraries for super awesome music experience. One such I use is from ARISE Auditory SYSTEM called the Magnus opus sound mod. It let you install,Viper for Android, Dolby digital sound too.
Let’s you install apps that requires root ACCESS. Like greenify, kernal auditor, titanium back up.
Modify the build. Prop files.
you can install apk that requires xposed modules, xposed MODULE must be set up in the mobile formerly .
You can flash modules of magisk too. That are all pretty much amazing. For eg, You tube background playing that actually requires user to buy subscription and no shitty annoying adds. Bam eliminated. All for free.
Flash zip files that requires root dependant modules.
Let’s get started with the flashing process.
Go to your TWRP recovery.
Booting in a recovery mode is quite easy check your device forum for button combinations , generally it’s vol+ and power button pressed simultaneously and releasing the power button once the boot screen appears, make sure the mobile is switched off.
(Check your device in the list.).
For flashing twrp recovery.
You need a unlocked bootloader phone.(check your device forum for unlocking bootloader).
Adb on your pc.
Download adb files here.
For flashing it.
Open command prompt on your pc.
Power off your device, press volume down and power key until fastboot screen shows up.(also read in your device specific forum for booting to fastboot mode).
Connect your device via USB cable.
Fastboot oem device-info.
It will return with the bootloader info, ie whether it’s locked or not.
Fastboot flash recovery (drag and drop the twrp*.img files here)
It will flash this recovery, make sure the twrp is your device model specific.
And press enter.
Now for booting it for the first time.
If you don’t want to flash twrp recovery permanently then start from here don’t need to flash twrp. Img file.
Fastboot boot (drag and drop the he twrp*. Img files here)
Your phone will now boot into twrp recovery.
Now, Flash lazy flasher, file. To disable dm-verity and encryption.(you can skip this but have to flash if your device stuck in bootloop, or the boot logo)
If your data is encrypted then you have to format the DATA partition it via recovery.
Which can be located Under the wipe section of the ui of twrp recovery. .
Now again reboot your phone in recovery mode only.
Now flash the magisk 15.3.zip file.
Before flashing take a full backup of your ROM, through TWRP recovery and then copy it to your pc. (You can avoid this too, but it’s good to have a ROM back up, just incase).
Download zip here.
And reboot to system.
Now first boot takes a lot of time.
And now enjoy.
About Magisk module.
I use xiaomi phone Mi5. In case if you are wondering.
Here is some screen shot of the magisk manager interface after rooting.
Magisk hide, if the app recognize this rooting method, you can successfully hide it.
