So today with some testers i managed to make root on OnePlus 8, I want to specify that 95% of the work was done by @topjohnwu (Magisk creator).

I will explain 2 different guides:

First Root Guide:

This guide is for a specific rom version, so you will need to use a specific patched boot.img

- Download the patched_boot.img
- Reboot your device in bootloader-fastboot mode
- Flash the patched_boot.img in the boot partition:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
replace "boot.img" with the patched_boot.img path

- Reboot the device
- Install Magisk Manager



Second Root Guide:

This guide is more generic than the first one, you should use this one if you are unable to find a specific patched boot.img

- Download a patched_boot.img (you should try with the latest one)
- Reboot your device in bootloader-fastboot mode
- Boot the patched_boot.img:
Code:
fastboot boot boot.img
replace "boot.img" with the patched_boot.img path

- Reboot the device
- Install Magisk Manager
- Click on Install, then direct install and wait the end of the process
- Reboot the device


TIPS:

You can get the stock boot images from the fastboot rom: Fastboot ROMs

HOW TO UPDATE a ROM and KEEP ROOT:
Before all Disable all magisk modules
Be sure to use Canary Magisk Manager and Canary Magisk (debug)
You can update a stock rom from phone settings with local upgrade:
- Update the Rom WITHOUT REBOOT;
- Open Magisk Manager;
- In Magisk Manager, click on Install/Install/Direct Install;
- Again in Magisk Manager, click on Install/Install/Inactive Slot;
- Reboot.

i reckon the only way to flash a boot image is to have an unlocked bootloader

Is anybody able to upload a 10.5.3-EUROPE magisk patched (and stock) boot image?

If you're on this, DO NOT try with 10.5.2. It involves the SIMs not being usable and the system UI to regularly crash.

I followed this thinking I was on International 15.5.3 so flashed 10.5.3-GLOBAL-magisk_patched. I now cannot connect to WIFI and can't update via local system update as I'm on the latest EU version.
Any suggestions?

Used the unbrick tool to revert back to EU 10.5.1 back to complete stock and locked bootloader. WIFI working.
Ran the same sets again this time using the matching 10.5.1-EUROPE-magisk_patched file and still ran into the no WIFI issue :/
