As you may imagine this simple guide will show you how to root your device with magisk from twrp recovery.
I know, there is already a guide by jashancheema that shows how to root this device, however it's difficult to update the system once you are rooted. In my opinion the way i'm about to show you is faster and easier.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for ANY damage done to your phone, act at your own risk.

That's how you can root your phone with magisk and recovery without disabling ota.

1. First download magisk manager and magisk flashable zip from here (official thread)
Install magisk manager and copy the magisk flashable zip somewhere in your device or sd.

2. Download mohancm twrp recovery (recovery-3.2.1-2-oreo) from here (official thread)
NOTE: do not download the installer, you need the .img file bootable from fastboot (recovery-3.2.1-2-oreo.img)

3. Copy recovery-3.2.1-2-oreo.img into the fastboot folder.

4. Enable developer option from in the device, enable OEM unlocking.

5. turn off your device and enter into fastboot mode by holding voume down + power button, then connect your device to the pc.

6. now open fastboot and type this to check the connection, if the terminal return an andress your phone is correctly configured.
Code:
fastboot devices
7. type this from fastboot to unlock your bootloader.
Code:
fastboot oem unlock
8. now type this to boot your recovery (REMEMBER TO COPY THE RECOVERY IMG INTO THE FASTBOOT FOLDER)
Code:
fastboot boot recovery-3.2.1-2-oreo.img
9. once your recovey boot flash the magisk zip and reboot.
NOTE: do not install or flash twrp into your device or you won't be able to update through ota.


---------------------HOW TO UPDATE-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you will receive the update the only thing you need to do is boot twrp, flash magisk unistaller (that you can find here ) and update.

1. type this to boot your recovery (REMEMBER TO COPY THE RECOVERY IMG INTO THE FASTBOOT FOLDER)
Code:
fastboot boot recovery-3.2.1-2-oreo.img
2. flash magisk unistaller from recovey

3. Update your system

4. Repeat the same procedure to root again your device.

@H.A.L. 9000, I'm sorry for my ignorance but I wonder whether the bootloader unlock passage (that'd reset everything) is inescapable after installing an OTA update

Thanks for this I was always confused on how to update the phone after magisk.

Edit: you think it's possible to use a custom kernel with magisk and still maintain ota?
