Gentlemen, I really need your help!

The first problem is to flash vbmeta.
According to https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-32719.html I have used "Method 3 - Flashing vbmeta" because of Android 11 on my device.
What has been made...
1) Unlocked bootloader using Identifier Token (https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-32287.html)
2) Checked empty vbmeta (https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-32719.html)
  - using "adb reboot-fastboot" (fastbootd mode) => bootloops after reload
  - using "adb reboot-bootloader" (fastboot mode) => stucks for many hours after:
      | Sending 'vbmeta' (1024 KB)  OKAY [  0.043s]
      | Writing 'vbmeta'...
3) Checked stock vbmeta with parameters (https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-32719.html)
  => the same as (2)
4) Created a custom signed vbmeta.img using AVBtool (https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-32664.html)
  >> python avbtool.py make_vbmeta_image --key rsa4096_vbmeta.pem --algorithm SHA256_RSA4096 --flag 2 --padding_size 20480 --chain_partition boot:1:keys/boot_key.bin --chain_partition dtbo:6:keys/dtbo_key.bin --chain_partition socko:13:keys/socko_key.bin --chain_partition odmko:14:keys/odmko_key.bin --chain_partition vbmeta_system:2:keys/vbmeta_system_key.bin --chain_partition vbmeta_system_ext:3:keys/vbmeta_system_ext_key.bin --chain_partition vbmeta_vendor:4:keys/vbmeta_vendor_key.bin --chain_partition vbmeta_product:5:keys/vbmeta_product_key.bin --chain_partition l_modem:7:keys/l_modem_key.bin --chain_partition l_ldsp:8:keys/l_ldsp_key.bin --chain_partition l_gdsp:9:keys/l_gdsp_key.bin --chain_partition pm_sys:10:keys/pm_sys_key.bin --chain_partition l_agdsp:11:keys/l_agdsp_key.bin --chain_partition l_cdsp:12:keys/l_cdsp_key.bin --output vbmeta-sign-custom.img
  >> python vbmeta_pad_10.py
  => the same as (2)

The second problem is to sign images (https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-32674.html).
The command
>> python avbtool.py add_hash_footer --image magisk_boot.img --partition_name boot --partition_size 67108864 --key rsa4096_vbmeta.pem --algorithm SHA256_RSA4096
fires an error: "avbtool.py add_hash_footer: error: argument --image: invalid FileType('rab+') value: 'boot_magisk.img'"
I use Windows 10, Python 2.7 and surely avbtool for this: https://www.hovatek.com/redirectcode.php...TE9ITDlLQQ==

Thank you so much for any replies!
