I have done all of that twice now. Each time, on reboot I just get a black screen. Linux syslog on my PC shows that the phone is booting into MSM mode, as if the boot partition was invalid.If you hit uninstall in Magisk, there is an option to restore images. If you hit that, it leaves Magisk installed and restores the stock boot images. If that works for you, you just go ahead and do that, install the OTA, and go back to Magisk before rebooting and go Install > inactive slot. Done.

I don't know what to tell you, it's working for others. Try installing C.61, rebooting, installing C.61 a second time to get it on both slots, then use the MSM Tool and go to read back mode with F8 and extract one of the boot partitions, manually patch it with Magisk, then boot it in fastboot, open Magisk, and do the direct install option.I have done all of that twice now. Each time, on reboot I just get a black screen. Linux syslog on my PC shows that the phone is booting into MSM mode, as if the boot partition was invalid. After a long, LONG press of the power button, I got it to power-off, and a subsequent reboot got me back into the original C.48 environment.
If rooted you need full install
Incremental is installable by restoring the boot image through magisk restore.
Try to restore the boot image via ADB (see page 1 for the correct one). Perhaps Magisk has failed to restore the boot image. For me, Magisk restored the boot image and uninstalled correctly and the (incremental) update C.61 installed without any problems.
How did you update? Through OTA, System Update app or Local install? What was your previous OOS version?
|Magisk Variant||Stable / Beta / Canary|
|Android / OOS||OOS 11 and above|
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.
My method:This seems way too easy. After reading several attempts and resulting soft bricks and whatnot, you're saying:
Uninstall magisk (or just the app?)
(Won't this leave you unrooted and unable to install magisk alpha?)
Install magisk alpha
Local update to a12
Install magisk (alpha) to inactive slot after ota
I'm holding off on a12 until a kernal or two are available, bugs are worked out, and a crystal clear update method.
