Have you tried going back to complete stock and then trying to tpull that boot.img and flashing with magisk? and then once the boot.img is patched and flashed, one thing that to tthis day i forget to do more trhan antyhing is to issue the following command at some piont before rebooting out of fastboot:

fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification vbmeta vbmeta.img
I am on stock

Look at you go.. right on man.. I'm telling you, some of the most important yet memorable experiences since getting into this **** was when i'd be left out to dsry but would eventually figure out whstever it was that was puzzling me.. looksl ike the same just happened with you. ;-)
Yes sir, I feel very accomplished.

Now I'm trying to change the boot animation and the splash screen.
I discovered the splash img is splash_a and splash_b
Located in /dev/block/boot device/by-name
I replaced the splash_a with a custom splash but it didn't work

untouched Boot partitions OCTOBER PATCHView attachment 5771677
This is the incremental ota and won't do most ppl much good. If u would please use payload dumper and dump the file u will see which partitions the ota updates and those are the partitions someone would have to pull from their updated device and upload in order for everyone to have access to the full. October firmware if you feel like sharing it with us

Or I can copy the flash script I made and u can use that as a list of partitions we need to get our rooted devices on October firmware

    just pulled this from my device. haven't patched it yet, but here's a stock august boot image. i used the pre-rooted lineageos rom and pulled the partition into an img file, i see someone just posted a guide in one of the threads without the boot image shared afterwards.. which kind of defeats the purpose for some people that are having a hard time accomplishing that.

    edit: i am successfully rooted, but i have no radios. haven't looked into what the solution would be for that yet. i don't think it's been discussed other than that being a thing. share information here if you have any.

    edit: link removed because i dissected the boot.img, and it indeed, is not an august boot img
