- Open an ADB terminal on your PC (hold Shift + right click and choose ‘ Open a Command Window Here’)
- This should launch a command window. Now connect your Micromax Canvas Infinity HS2 to your PC via USB cable, and accept the USB debugging pairing dialogue on your device’s screen.
- To make sure the connection is successfully recognized in ADB, type into the ADB command window: adb devices
- If the connection is recognized, the ADB command prompt should display your device’s serial number. If not, you may need to troubleshoot your ADB installation or USB connection.

- In the ADB command window, type the following commands:
fastboot oem unlock-go
- Go through the bootloader unlock process on your device.
- Now download the TWRP from the Requirements section and rename it to “recovery.img”, and place it in your main ADB folder. Also download the Magisk .zip file and place it on your external SD card.
- Type into the ADB command window: fastboot boot recovery.img
- This will reboot your device into TWRP recovery (it hasn’t been flashed onto your device, we are booting into it over ADB).
- When you’re inside TWRP, go to Install > Install Zip > choose the Magisk .zip file, and swipe to flash it.
- When Magisk has successfully flashed, type into the ADB command window: fastboot reboot
- The first time rebooting after flashing Magisk may take a while, just leave your device alone until it completely boots into the Android system.
