WILL NOT INSTALL FOR ME !

Clean install CFW 2.1.1
Copied update_patched_boot_Magisk_v18.0_Q10Pro_v2.1.1_[1.0].zip to USB renamed to update.zip and installed using local upgrade
Installed Magisk manager and it tells me Magisk is not installed, The only option it gives me to install is to patch boot image file

UPDATE:

Apparently the Magisk update.zip cannot be installed using the USB 3.0 port, Works fine on the 2.0 ports, All is well seems to have installed just fine now.

If you have installed Magisk I suggest you try YouTube Vanced works very well....

In Magisk Manager click on downloads and search for Youtube, Find youtube vanced, I am using the black themed version, Click on download and you will be prompted to install and reboot.


FEATURES:

    Block all ads (togglable)
    Background Playback
    Force VP9 (or HDR) or vice versa
    Override Maximal Resolution
    Pinch to Zoom (for all devices)
    Casting Togglable (can be forced off)
    Toggle Themes (Black, Dark, White)
    PiP - Picture in Picture mode (Oreo only)
    Auto Repeat Feature
    Preferred Speed and Resolution

Remember to uninstall YouTube updates and disable auto update option found in Play Store. If you don't do this, updated app will replace the Vanced app automatically and you will not see any new features.

Do you have a problem with both Youtube Vanced and youtube ATV when transferring from 1080 to 4k only the sound and the video is stopped?

If you are already rooted with SuperSU you should perform a Dirty upgrade of whatever firmware you are currently using before you install Magisk

So does HDR with YT really work this way?

What if I simply install YT Vanced Non-Root version (https://www.xda-developers.com/youtube-vanced-apk/), will I get HDR? (Tho' I don't really think so, but at least worth to ask...)

Maybe work with FW start with v2.0.4, but I didn't test it.
Make backup of sensitive data and be prepared to do restore with paper clip if box is not boot.

And any other solution or app known yet to get YT HDR working? I know it's a Google Inc. restriction and it only works officially on a small branch of devices, but maybe there's some workaround?

Magisk/Root has nothing to do with Netflix getting HD/4K, This is a licensing issue and will never be avail on the Q10 Pro

The latest versions of the Xfinity Stream app is no longer working with this method, However you can use this modded version found in this Thread.

Do not Upgrade your FW to the Latest 2.1.4, They have not updated Magisk for it yet !

After install of Magisk v19.3 direct update to Magisk v20.3 expected to be fine too.
