Is this way even necessary? Why cant u do the same way as the pixels. Seen it done where u just download the latest firmware, get the boot image from it and then use magisk to get a patched boot image and then install?

Same as video below?

As long as you have the bootloader unlocked then it will work that way. Thats how i did it. We even have a semi working twrp that will give root adb access so you can dd the boot image. That way no need to download full rom.

I believe its built for the 8 but it boots to a black flickering screen but has adb access with root. Only use it with the fastboot boot command though, dont flash it. Check the other root threads here. Its in one of them with instructions.

Edit: heres a link to the post im referring to

Late, but AFH wasn't letting me upload yesterday

11.0.7.9.KB05AA International Boot image & ROOT

CAUTION!
I do not know if are multiple OTA files for those still stuck on a previous versions before 11.0.6.8.KB05AA. I recommend just updating it through the system update or download the full rom. I updated through system update.

Not my fault if your phone breaks.

WARNING!!!
Previously a few people have had bootloop issues and incomplete updates.

I wonder if all these update issues are because their phones aren't running the correct software. KB2000 is supposed to run hydrogen, KB2001 is supposed to run DA rom, KB2003 is supposed to run BA rom, and cyberpunk is supposed to run cyberpunk rom. I don't know where you all got your phones, but if you're using the AA rom and don't have a KB2005 device, then whoever sold you the phone hacked the wrong rom into it and who knows what each update will do.

The only people I know that have complained about bootloop issues after updating are using the wrong rom on the wrong phone.

I can't help you if your phone doesn't update properly.

Non-PC Method

See Warning above.

Step 1: You must unroot first. You don't have to completely remove Magisk, just restore images. Open Magisk, click uninstall magisk, and only click restore images. DO NOT REBOOT!

Step 2: Install OTA update. DO NOT REBOOT!

Step 3: Open Magisk and install to inactive slot. Reboot. Boot up took about 30 seconds.
Hello,

I followed the Non-PC method, but I am now stuck on "Qualcomm CrashDump". I am using a OnePlus 8T KB2003, and was on 11.0.6.8 and got updated to 11.0.7.10. What I did exactly was :
Update Magisk App, and image to latest Canary version, reboot, and then followed the method. I did probably something wrong (well, what else...) but I do not know what to do to get out of the problem. Do you have any advise or any link to follow, please ?

Thank you for your help.

Never mind, I had to restore from scratch, and now I am running LOS to see.

Sorry to hear that. I don't think you did anything wrong, but I do think your phone downloaded an incomplete or corrupted OTA file.

I think you could have downloaded the full rom and flashed it over the failed update.

I highly reccommend you both backup the persist and probably even the modem partitions before you attempt to flash another region's build. I have added the commands to do so in the OP
From the OPNord thread again, I quote:

==================

Thanks! Can you please confirm the Model number? Is it KB2005? Once I get the model number I will add it accordingly to the OP.
==================

Yeah I'd like to disable it too. I assumed when patching the boot.img magisk will give me an option to disable focrencrypt and dmverity but it didn't. I come from the OP3 and I completely lost track of all the changes introduced in Android since Nougat. Encryption can be a huge PITA.
Do let me know how you do it later.
==================

Yeah if you have the bootloader unlocked and the full OTA Zip downloaded for your variant you can use this method to root your 8T
==================

You can find out from adb.
In my case:
Code:
adb shell getprop ro.build.version.ota
OnePlus8TOxygen_15.I.16_GLO_0160_2010150110

@All Can anyone help me out mapping the Build number with the model number of the device?
OnePlus8TOxygen_15.I.16_GLO_0160_2010150110 <----> Indian Variant <----> KB2001
OnePlus8TOxygen_15.E.17_GLO_0170_2010150108 <----> EU Variant <----> KB200?
OnePlus8TOxygen_15.O.16_GLO_0160_2010150057 <----> ?? Variant <----> KB200?
Really looking on good information for rooting the KB2007

So if I am reading this correctly...

I picked up an 8T (KB2005)- updated to latest stock os (11.0.8.11.KB05AA ) - unlocked the bootloader...

The "patched" boot.img above can simply be pushed via adb - correct?

You can via fastboot, but don't flash it. Use the boot command, then go into magisk and do a direct install.
fastboot boot .....img

Can't the ROM for a different region be flashed? I mean can I not CLEAN flash OOS (full ROM) for Europe in KB2001 or KB 2005?
