Second time "randomly" loosing root acces (S8+)

Dear ladies and gentleman,

Since the past few days, I have been encountering a rather strange phenomenon.

It all happened last week, after a reboot of my phone. I could not find Youtube Vanced on my phone. So, being the curious me, I decided to check what happened.

Turns out my phone, after being rooted for over 4 months by now, somehow "lost" it's root access after a restart. No Magisk, no SU, negative results from Root-Checker.

I was baffled on how this could happen. Maybe it was a bug after an update. That's why, after some backing up, I did a fresh start.

Yet, just a few hours ago, my phone once again lost it's root access. The battery ran out.

Now, with the preamble done, here's my question for you:

How is it possible to "lose" root access? Does it have to do with underlying security features that I do not know of? Is there a way to get around it?

I'm willing to do another fresh installment of TWRP and stuff.

I used this (hxxps:// guide for rooting.

Any additional information needed will be posted asap.

I'm looking forward to your answers.

With kind regards,
