80 percent is only on rooted nougat. Pie is unrooted and battery will charge to 100 percent

Magisk just tweeted that the "world's first true system-as-root" was just created. Do you think that with this we could achieve root for Pie? Or would this not change anything?

All that a and b partition stuff reefers to phones that were released with pie. Our phone is still old school no treble support.

also if I were to want to revert to the rooted nougat ROM, do I have to follow all the steps on the rooting guide or could I just flash an image through safestrap?

you can just flash image in safestrap and then flash the safestrap for nougat zip in post 2 (or its included in the new DSF6 build) after you flash the nougat system image in safestrap to get back to nougat safestrap. If you fail to flash the safestrap zip for nougat your phone will automatically boot to safestrap on every reboot on a nougat rom.
