I know this has been asked but since the xda app is so atrocious now I can't find any answers.


I'm rooted on the Tmo OP9 variant but can't remember how to update from the ota. Can someone run me through it?

Make sure you are using the T-Mobile boot.img and not any other variant. Depending on how you rooted it in the beginning..

The
way I updated my t-mobile one plus 9
Is go to magisk, uninstall, restore images. Go to system update. Download and install. DO NOT REBOOT!!
go to magisk and reinstall magisk in inactive slot after ota , now reboot!

Thanks for the reminder! I remember now but somehow my phone is confused. I did the exactly as you said, which is the correct way, and then I hit the switch slots on magisk after ota when it was done, and it restarted but the OTA wanted to restart too so I guess I let the wrong one restart after updating?

So it wouldn't boot after that so I had to switch slots. Now it tried to update but says something went wrong and to update to finish installation. I'm not real sure how to proceed here other than master reset at this point.

I don't know what happened. Sounds like you did exactly like I did. I let magisk reboot for me and everything went just fine. I have heard problems with magisk having issues with inactive slot and was removed in the canary build... You can try flashing stock boot.img before doing a factor reset and see if that helps at all.
