We report the effective methods to induce weak ferromagnetism in pristine persisting up to room temperature with the improved transport property, which would lead to new spintronics devices. The hydrogenation of by heating at for 1 h leads to the easy axis out of plane, while the irradiation of proton with a dose of leads to the easy axis in plane. The theoretical modeling supports such magnetic easy axes.
