Where can you get it to sideload? Any thread with instructions?

lolol I did google it and downloaded it a couple of days ago. That file is 1.5gb and from what I've read the update size is 9.3mb.
Maybe I've misunderstood the description on the download for the full OTA:
"This page contains full OTA update packages that allow you torestore your Nexus or Pixel device's original factory firmware. You will find these files useful if you have experienced a failure to take an OTA. This has the same effect as flashing the corresponding factory image, [I][but without the need to wipe the device or unlock the bootloader./I]"
Maybe I'm tripping over the two italicized parts as it doesn't say whether it will wipe or whether it will retain my installed programs and data. Perhaps, "without the need to wipe the device" could mean that it will do it automatically.

Without an available nandroid backup I am reluctant to flash anything that is described as "Full".

Are you saying that flashing the Full OTA image at 1.5gb will not wipe installed programs and data?

At this point I'm pretty sure that is what you're implying. Can you confirm so I can proceed confidently?
TIA

Did you retain root? Or did you have to re-patch the boot.img?

This is the full ota file. Because you sideload it you can't retain root (you have to enter recovery - ota file is installed to the other slot). In the ota file you find also the boot.img to patch it and reapply root by flashing the patched boot.img through fastboot. Also i didn't receive the ota through air (even deinstalled magisk before checking for ota). Maybe Google changed something.... Gonna see what happens next month.
