I am a bit confused by that option's function as well. My guess is that with the option enabled, if you have a system update installed, and you reboot, the device will swap slots to the new install. If you have it disabled, your device will reboot to the same (non-updated) slot, unless you reboot from the system update dialog.
Turn it off. It is better to control the OTA installation. This option On would install OTA w/o your approval (Automatic).
Steps I follow to update:Good day,
If someone could help that would be great. I converted my le2127 to EU. So currently on 188.8.131.52 with rooted, magisk boot.img. What is the best way to update to .8.8 while keeping everything intact? I may have also tripped l1 to l3 what would the process be if I wanted to try and relock and unlock again now with the conversion?
Thanks very much.
Disable/remove all magisk modules and reboot. Mine stopped running hot after this, and I've been adding them back one by one.
That could have been the reason. I've always rebooted from Magisk which is the recommended way.I had some terrifying experience during last update.
Downloaded FULL OTA and installed until reboot prompt
Went to Magisk, installed with option after OTA
Went back to FULL OTA install dialog and hit reboot.
Then it got stuck in a bootloop of "android unlocked bootloader warning". After few reboots it went into recovery with some strange errors. Something like cannot create user .... I hit reboot in recovery once again, and then it booted normaly.
Maybe issue was because I hit reboot on OTA install, and not in Magisk install dialog?
I've also experienced this, and yesterday I actually got the Android System warning about overheating then recovery a few minutes later, but it could have been in part due to being outside in extremely hot weather (over 100F/38C here) and direct sunlight so the phone was at high brightness. I'm running Omega kernel so usually my phone runs cooler than stock kernel, but temp seems less consistent since the OOS 184.108.40.206 update.
Patched 220.127.116.11 for LE15AA global
I guess lesson is to ALWAYS flash with full ROM and NEVER incremental when you're rooted.I figured it out. I should say I don't have TWRP. The full 9.9 OTA is now on updater. Download the full file (should be around 3gbs) then disable all modules in magisk and then reboot. After this reboot go into settings and manually update from the system section and select the full OTA, NOT the incremental. Do NOT reboot after install. Then follow steps in OP aka install magisk to inactive slot and reboot and you should be good
I followed the steps in the first page but in Magisk i don't have install in inactive slot. I restore stock boot.img i do the OTA update and now I can't root. Anyone can share the patched .IMG for 2.9.9?
If you are unrooted (already rebooted since the update without reinstalling magisk), you'll need to root again using a patched boot image.I had the install to inactive slot option prior to this update. I have never modified anything in my system so I guess selinux would only be disabled if the update did it by default. How would I use terminal/su now that I don't have root? Sorry, I'm not super familiar with the process
You can download the EU stock boot.img that's in this thread (2nd post), download the latest magisk canary manager and patch that boot.img. Then you can temporarily gain root by rebooting to bootloader and booting that image ex. "fastboot boot boot.img"( your boot.img name will vary after patching). After the phone boots you can just go into magisk manager and do a "direct install" and that will patch your global boot.img to gain permanent root.
Hate to be that guy but: can someone provoide step by step guide including fastboot commands to get my EU 9pro rooted?
Usually can figure this stuff out ok myself but have never tinkered a device without TWRP and not really that familiar with fastboot other than booting to TWRP and other very basic stuff?
