Hi, I'm trying to update my phone to the latest version. It is rooted with Magisk and hasn't been updated at all since I got it a year and a half ago. The methods I have found so far for updating with root are not working. Every time I try to open System Updates in my Settings, it force closes on me so I can't access it.

Is there a work around for this? I have tried using Oxygen Updater and that failed also. Can I manually install the OTA update and preserve root somehow?

Please help, I haven't found any solutions. I got an error 1 using TWRP, which seems to mean that my boot.img is corrupt?

I managed to solve this by doing a factory reset/data wipe, which was my last resort (and a huge pain to have to restore everything). I still don't know what caused the issue, although I have some suspicions.

But in case anyone else encounters this error, it is definitely not the boot.img and I had no problems retaining root.
