So today with some testers i managed to make root on OnePlus 8 Pro, 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 the latest stable Magisk
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 have a follow up question: what are the features needed from Magisk and Magisk Manager that require the Canary release? I can't find anything in their changelog and my curiosity is getting the best of me :D

    OnePlus 8 Pro 10.5.4BA (Europe) stock rom link: https://otafsg1.h2os.com/patch/amaz...ygen_15.E.13_OTA_013_all_2004111446_df409.zip

    How can I do if I'm already in 10.5.5 without root? Is there any way to downgrade to 10.5.4 and then upgrade again to keep root?

    Wait 10 minutes and the new patched boot.img will be up

    Do you know if it passes SafteyNet with Magisk Hide enabled? Assuming not since Google now uses hardware signatures vs spoofable software ones.

    Sure does

    Could someone please pull either their 10.5.6 boot image or the 10.5.6 magisk patched boot image? I accidentally fastboot flash booted the 10.5.5 boot image and now I have no wifi, etc and I don’t have windows for MSM :(
    I have "pulled" 10.5.6 IN11BA both stock & patched, if you wish...
