I was on OOS12 C.11 and to upgrade to c.15 or c.17 it was failiing.

Searching the internet found that we first need to UNROOT to be able to upgrade.

In Magisk, I restored the images and the upgrade was successful to c.17

But now I lost the Root. Magisk asks for the boot.img to patch.

Should i share the c.11 boot.img or the c.17 boot.img ?

Next time if you do an incremental update, have magisk install itself on the inactive slot after the update finishes installing but before rebooting.
I usually do this so never had issues before. but this time upgrade would fail always at 21% then in google i found people mentioning ROOTED Oneplus devices fail upgrade. and clearly after unroot the upgrade was successful but after you unroot the feature you mentioned wont be available.

And yes it was c.17 for India. now received c.20 yesterday. Will try the c.20 boot.img.

I tried extracting the boot.img but c20 doesnt have the boot.img i guess.

As per the instructions for payload dumper i placed the images in old folder from c.11 payload.
used the c.20 payload to extract.

i got 3 images : product.img | system.img | system_ext.img

after these3 images payload dumper had this error message and stopped

"Processing product partition.......Unsupported type = 9"

However when i tried with c.17 boot.img was available

i am now confused wheteher c.11 img or c.17 img to use for the rooting.

please help. I have never had this situation before.
