Do you have the full NA update?I was able to temporarily boot TWRP to backup the kernel from 126.96.36.199. Instead of a boot.img file it gave a boot.emmc.win but I flashed it back with "fastboot flash boot boot.emmc.win" and it worked fine. I also tested the Magisk patch and it booted with working root access. I have North American KB2005.

Silly question! I'm seeing that getting root for kb2005 got a few more steps so I just wanted to find out: COMING FROM SCRATCH, if I unlock my bootloader and then "fastboot boot boot.img" the correct boot.img followed by installing magisk, should I be able to get root?220.127.116.11.KB05AA International Boot image & ROOT
I do not know if are multiple OTA files for those still stuck on a previous versions before 18.104.22.168.KB05AA. I recommend just updating it through the system update or download the full rom. I updated through system update.
That's right. I wouldn't say there are more steps since it depends on the device.Silly question!

The ONLY time this makes a difference is if you're on custom rom and updating firmware. NOT on OxygenOS and non of the other processes for root or unlocking bootloader, etc cares about the memory speed.
Sure thing, here you go
Well topjohnwu himself refers to this method as deprecated and recommends against it.
Even though it is much more convenient, I suppose this kinda makes you have second thoughts, coming from the creator of Magisk himself.This installation method is deprecated and is maintained with minimum effort. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
It is very difficult to accurately detect the device’s information in custom recovery environments. Due to this reason, installing Magisk through custom recoveries on modern devices is no longer recommended.
Can confirm works just fine ;-)Well the method might be deprecated but it saves a lot of time and effort. It's not like the method is not functional, it's just that it doesn't work with every device. There's been several guinea pigs now and looks like it works perfectly with OOS on 8T.
Anyways, it's up to you whether you want to go around the puddle or leap over it, both work just fine.
Can't believe I've never tried this before... Was sitting on this last version for a month now (international) lol so simple and easy. Restored images, took the ota from the system, and installed magisc in inactive slot and presto! Thanks, man!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.
I ended up using the unbrick tool with that error. My phone's been error free since then.@g96818 , thanks for these instructions. Any thoughts on why my KB2005 (w/ Magisk Canary, currently 22.214.171.124.KB05AA) stops mid-update with "Couldn't update, Installation problem?" I've tried 3 times. This is after doing "restore images" in Magisk. Any ideas are appreciated. Maybe I should go the PC route.
Most of your setting is backed up on google, but not your app data. If you're still rooted, then you can uses an app like titanium backup or swift backup and back up your app data. save your back up files to your pc, then copy it back and restore after you unbrick and properly root your phone.
I use Swift Backup for application backups (after having been a long time TB user) and TWRP for system level (data partition, system partitions) backups.
