    [Installing Magisk]
    If you can decrypt your data partition, you can follow 17:25.

    you data partition, goto 16:49.

    When using TWRP 3.2.3-0 on a Pixel 3 XL, you cannot use ADB yet, so sideloading Magisk isn't an option for you just now. Please follow from 17:59. Remember to check the video's website post for any updates.

    If you want to install TWRP, you MUST flash it FIRST! Not after Magisk, before Magisk.
