Things are changing with the advent of project treble. OnePlus will no longer release ROMs flashable via recovery (either stock or twrp) because is no more needed. The updates will be done on the slot not used for example if you are using slot a the update will be installed on slot b and the slot b will be set as default. If you brick and you are in bootloop how you can restore the rom? You can't with Stock ROM you have, because the zip can be only installed via Update Engine, so what can you do? Flash a stock rom via fastboot. I have extracted all images from the stock zip and i have made a new zip with the Fastboot ROM with a flash-all.bat included. This will work only if your bootloader is unlcoked. This will erase all your data and will wipe your internal storage.

HOW TO INSTALL
Download the zip;
Unpack the zip in a folder;
Reboot the OnePlus 6 in fastboot mode (Power and volume-);
Connect the OnePlus 6 to PC;
Run flash-all.bat the folder where you unzipped the ROM;
Wait until the process end.

DOWNLOAD

All roms on Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1QH...uXp1qf7zIeYN3t

OSX - Linux

If you want to flash these fastboot roms through OSX or Linux you can follow the guide on this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...0&postcount=56
Remember to install adb and fastboot before flash the rom.

REMEMBER
"Invalid sparce file format at header magic" is not an error, you need to wait a bit when you see that string, just wait.

If you want you can use also my tool to unlock bootloader, flash twrp or to understand if the device is recognized: https://toolaio.tk/

Thanks to @SaiBork for first time tested

No, with Update Engine. With project treble the updates are installed from an Android app called Update Engine in the slot that you are not using, when you reboot the device after the update, the slot will be changed and you will have the update. The stock recovery is there only to wipe your memory if needed and there is no longer the recovery partition but the recovery is included in the boot partition.

Yes, i added it on first post

so it pretty much puts it back to factory settings. So even with us being rooted and having a custom recovery, will we be able to get OTA's or will we have to wipe our phones on every update?

I restored it via the unofficial twrp by flashing the stock zip in recovery, but it was a pain because the new modded version didn't support mtp and the original was extremely slow and didn't load with anything on the internal storage. It was a painful process with repeated failures and if I had this method, would've saved a lot of frustration. I will definitely try next time I brick, which I do a lot....

Maybe I'll just take one for the team and intentionally brick to try for sure

Maybe in a week or so because I have a cold at the moment. I could probably do a video on my PC with no audio.

If you make an update you will lose root and twrp, but if you run magisk manager before reboot after the update you can keep the root.

I forget to say that the latest TWRP have the support for Update Engine
