As the title says, I plan to keep a collection of the ESSENTIAL updates here in this thread because I intend to keep my Mata for a while still and I want to stay updated every month.

WARNING - These are custom made zips as you would download them from ESSENTIAL, except with SYSTEM modifying partitions removed. So anyone who is running on a Custom ROM can easily run the batch file to flash all the other updated partitions at once in FASTBOOT. Easy pz!

HOW TO:

These aren't your usual "TWRP flashable" zips! Please read and follow the instructions below:

INSTRUCTION:
  • Download ZIP file
  • Unzip in a location of your choosing
  • Reboot PH1 to Fastboot
  • Make your PC/Laptop can communicate with the device
  • Run the BAT file inside the EXTRACTED folder
  • Follow the instructions given.
  • Profit!

NOTE:
Nothing will be wiped!!


EDIT (11-01-2020): Thanks to (@dragynbane222) for fixing the Linux/Unix script. Zip re-uploaded!

Have fun.
Camo.

You can still use the images in the zip files from this thread, but you wont get the SYSTEM, VENDOR or KERNEL updates.

Would I need to reflash TWRP and Root after this?

Nope you don't. Nothing is wiped.

All the small partitions are silently updated, just run the BAT or SH (if you're on Linux).

Aside from this, the dev also has to pull in the latest security patch in the source code then build it. These zips only provide the updated former.
