It's not very easy as you need to extract boot.img from the full oos zip(or extract it from your phone with fastboot), patch the boot img, then fastboot flash it back. Far more simple to to it as explained. And you need a computer anyway.

And with the new slot A/B architecture you need anyway a computer each time you flash a ROM, as you need to reinstall TWRP each time, due to the lack of recovery partition here (it's been 'replaced' by vendor partition necessary for Treble compatibility) .
yes it is and no you don't!
First up, yes, this was posted last year, and no, I haven't read ALL of this to realize whether you've been refuted, and it would be unreasonable for you to expect me to have done that.
Let's try not to spread false info. If you don't know, like many times I haven't been up to the given challenge, I make sure to include a disclaimer as to how "strongly believe such and such, but in all honesty, I'm not a hundred percent sure!" type of thing.

1. What is this and for what ? blu_spark_r65-oos-pie_op6_9a5f932e4.zip. Is this is for Oneplus 6T A6010?
2. Is this the latest TWRP for Oneplus 6T A6010 ? twrp-3.2.3-x_blu_spark_v9.91_op6.img

I don't know if you root your phone in the end but I followed this step for root my phone:

- Unlock the bootloader
- flash a temporary twrp recovery (not blu spark version)
- flash the .zip file recovery and magisk.zip

and it's worked.

    Hello guys, i just got home from the OnePlus popup event in Amsterdam. And i just finished rooting the OnePlus 6T.
    Requirements: ADB/Fastboot
    First unlock your bootloader if you haven't already done it, there are many tutorials on the internet.
    Download Blu_Sparks OP6 TWRP 9.86(.img and .zip) or newer.
    Then boot into bootloader and do: fastboot boot twrp-3.2.3-x_blu_spark_v9.86_op6.img
    When you're in TWRP go to Advanced>Adb sideload and start it.
    Then do: adb sideload twrp-3.2.3-x_blu_spark_v9.86_op6.zip
    After that installs, reboot recovery. Then go to advanced>adb sideload and start it again
    Then do: adb sideload Magisk-v17.3.zip
    after that finished just reboot back to oos and you're rooted!

    Blu Spark twrp: https://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/?id=27466#downloads
    Magisk: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases

    I'm the first rooted earopean OP6T consumer ever.

    What's the correct procedure when an OOS OTA is released?

    Are we safe to install and then just reflash TWRP and Magisk?

    You need to keep stock recovery to be able to use OTA, To use TWRP you'll have to download the whole oos ROM, flash it and then you need to reflash TWRP and magisk as there is no separate recovery partition on op6 /6t

    ---------- Post added at 04:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:45 PM ----------

    Why need the magisk zip to be sideloaded..
    Can not be just flashed through the temporary twrp?

    Because it's temporary you have to use sideload, as TWRP is present only in ram, and it seems that the op6 version have difficulties to decrypt op6t data partition if I understood correctly. And because I didn't want to flash for good TWRP on the phone to keep stock recovery.

    Hey, can you tell how to make a nandroid backup of oneplus 6t using this twrp. I tried doing the same, it gives error.

    Can not create '/data/media/0TWRP' folder (Required key not available). Failed to make backup folder.

    I tried it with and without setting pattern on the phone. Maybe this is happening because my phone is still encrypted, if this is the case please tell how to decrypt and then make the nandroid backup.
