Thanks pcristi!

Just a warning though.. If you attempt this install and it bricks your box (which it almost certainly will not) the installation will have invalidated your warranty. Proceed at your own risk!

Great news! But...
Will this script work with Zidoo X10?
The problem is that the firmware for my device is missing the file boot.img, so I can't patch it under Magisk to flash it with USB stick.
The reason I want to install Magisk is that Zidoo X10 doesn't have DRM Widevine L1 (or any level at all), so I can't use Netflix and some other IPTV apps with 1080p (and above) encription in it.

The new players do have DRM Widevine L1 but Netflix still working in SD only. So how does root help here?

Not help.
DRM Widevine L1 ID of RTD 1619DR Zidoo players is was banned on Netflix and Google servers on began of this year.
Waiting for solution from Zidoo.

Well, maybe it won't help with Netflix, but some other apps are looking at the presense of root, and, as far as I can tell, Zidoo X10 comes with "pre-rooted firmware" or something like that. This fact is considered by some apps as a reason to stop working. So, my goal is to "hide" root with Magisk.
I've already tried many ways to unroot my Zidoo X10 without any success.
My prime question was not about Widevine or Netflix but about the possibility of this script working with my device.

Myzrael,
Magisk Manager are not fully compatible with old Zidoo UI then will need an alternative AppManager (https://www.mediafire.com/?znufybwa5g2tlvo) to launched.
Can give a try of test (https://www.mediafire.com/?dj45nk30i28ip4o) v1.2 version intend to work with all Zidoo (RTD 1295/1296/1619DR).
Zidoo RTD 1295/1296 models can lost adb connection after Magisk activated.
To remove Magisk delete /data/adb folder and optional reinstall same version of OFW from Zidoo UI/About/Update.

Thanks a lot!
I've tried to install firmware 1.4.12 (full) + OTA update 2.1.28 (and 2.1.40 separately)
AppManager from your link doesn't want to start during the boot (ZIUI Cool error after intalling the test v1.1 version), so I installed ZIUI-Tile-Launcher-1.2.9, it can change the starting shell from the Settings menu (Device - Home).
Test v1.1 doesn't work (Magisk - Installed - N/A)
Test v1.2 is installed, but writes: "Abnormal State. An "su" command that does not belong to Magisk is detected. Please remove the other unsupported su." Nothing changes with the AppManager launched. But it seems to be working, I'll give it a try for a while)
All versions were installed from the scratch (full flash then OTA).

Aha :) can just rename /system/xbin/su to /system/xbin/zu.
Upload test v1.3 with add of rename for Zidoo su binary(/system/xbin/su) to zu similar as they did on new players.
AppManager is not launcher are simple app drawer use on HiMedia players.

Yep, it's worked. Nothing close to Widevine L3, of course. I thought liboemcrypto repository adds some kind of DRM emulator, but it just lowers L1 to L3, so Netflix shows channels in SD on other devices with L1 license blocked. Unfortunately, not my case(
Waiting  for Zidoo response to Widevine broblem (guess forever), or just recent L3 hack implementation (guess sometime) on my, suddenly, "retro" mediabox))
Thanks a lot for the help, not only from me but from all the 4pda.ru (http://4pda.ru) users!

Sorry for the newbie questions.  But I got Magisk installed on my Z10 Pro. And I see the Magisk icon.  But in your instruction it states Do not update Magisk . Is this correct?  How do i use it?

Try to factory reset or recovery install v6.0.22 with install.img update to v6.0.45 or new, then follow instruction to install Magisk.
Minim firmware version for Magisk is v6.0.30.

First of all I rely recommended to keep your fingers far from Magisk.
Zidoo Z10 Pro is not ideal box to learn about Magisk and box are easy to brick.
Recover with TTL console(unbrick (http://forum.zidoo.tv/index.php?threads/recommended-settings-and-other-useful-stuff-for-rtd1619-players-includes-unbrick.82695/page-1)) doesn't look to be job for you.
How to flash Z10 Pro(recovery install) read on Zidoo site (https://www.zidoo.tv/Support/support_article/support_target/knZnnclmVcI%3D.html).
Factory reset search on quick settings then for sure you will discover.
Enjoy your Zidoo Z10 Pro as it is without Magisk.

Just confirming (1) if rooting is really necessary to use XBMC Wrapper (http://forum.zidoo.tv/index.php?threads/user-tutorial-kodi-with-the-xbmc-wrapper-on-zidoo.44317/), and (2) if the guide in post #1 can still be followed as is? I know there's ZDMC, but it hasn't been updated to Kodi 19.3. Thanks.

XBMC Wrapper, not stable with Magisk - Root Zidoo in media players with SoC RTD 1619DR.
Enjoy media collection.
