this is a highly experimental method. This method worked for you doesnt mean it will work for everybody. 50% chance of bootloop. Its better to wait for a working twrp.

I used magisk to patched the stock boot image and you can also patched your stock boot image to avoid any bootloop.

No. That didn't worked. You need to flash the whole firmware again
