Vulkan is a Graphics API like OpenGL and DirectX. What this means is that as mentioned apps, games, etc have to be made to take advantage of it. You can't just force it and every app, game, etc will run it. Graphics API's don't work that way.
Formatting data will wipe out all of your user data. Any installed apps, texts, call logs, etc will be wiped out. Flashing MSM Xtended will get rid of TWRP since it flashes a new kernel which is why you flash TWRP after flashing the rom.
So if you want to keep your apps, their data, texts, call...
I was on OOS 10.0.1 as I mentioned, so I followed this:
1. Reboot to recovery
2. Format data
3. Reboot to recovery
4. Flash MSM Xtended
5. Flash TWRP for Q
6. Reboot to recovery
7. Flash ExLite Normal GAPPS
8. Flash Magisk v20.1
9. Reboot to system
And that did it for me
I highly recommend it. I think I've found my new daily custom after thinking I'd have to give up custom roms on my 6T. I don't see any reason the beta shouldn't work though but I understand not wanting to risk it.
If you're using XDA Labs, try viewing it in browser.
I installed it using OOS 10.0.1 Stable and it seems to run perfectly fine. Very stable rom so far and I'm enjoying it a lot. Good job!
I used ExLite Gapps on install instead of OpenGapps.
I wouldn't install TWRP, I'd just boot to it as I said so it'll be temporary. Magisk will persist since it modifies the boot image. I've been booting to blu_spark TWRP. It can't decrypt /data but it allows sideloading Magisk fine.
Yeah I mainly included that note just because I'm not entirely sure about what all magisk modules everyone else uses. It wasn't needed for when I flashed either.

After updating to 9.0.6, boot into fastboot...
Yes you'll have to re-root afterwards.

For everyone wanting to flash the 9.0.6 I posted. You do NOT need to revert anything. Just disable magisk modules before flashing and then boot into fastboot and flash...
Here is the firmware package for 9.0.6 that is flashable on the T-Mobile 6T.
I've included the needed .bat file in the zip or you can use the one previously used in the original post of this thread.
I've noticed that since this is a light based Optic sensor that it is really dependent on the light you have around you while you're setting up the fingerprint that really determines how accurate it is
Yeah, I'd keep trying until you get a rep that'll whitelist your IMEI immediately. The request will likely last until the end of your 14 day grace period if it's paid off or 40 days if it isn't paid off.
What about extracting the partition images from the payload.bin and flashing everything but the modem in fastboot?
Edit: if you're rooted and have twrp couldn't you potentially make a backup for if it doesn't work?
Well, I plan to hopefully put out my own custom kernel. I've already got my source setup and my custom cortex-a75/a55 toolchain ready. Just need my unlock.bin and then the real fun begins :fingers-crossed:
I told them I travel for business and bought the phone under the pretense I'd be able to unlock it after it was paid off. Then they said that they'll wait until the 14 day return period was up to do it. After that I said that if I can't use the phone for work then I'd rather go phoneless for a...
Try saying you'll return the device and buy from Oneplus instead because you had expectations that paying off the device would mean you could unlock it. Then tell them you're willing to waive the 14 day return period for unlocking it.
