I'm pretty sure that Google's choices are not driven by any considerations, whatsoever, concerning the ease of rooting devices and upgrading the OS's on these rooted devices, espcically with regard to getting these rooted devices to pass SafetyNet.
In any case, I understand and accept that it's my choice as to whether I install upgrades or stay with older and perhaps easier-to-utilize rooting and OS upgrading procedures.
I guess I'm soon going to have to bite the bullet and learn a more complex procedure for upgrading my OS, without that OTA feature.
My device is a OnePlus 7 Pro (GM-1917), currently running OOS 10.3.8, and I am using TWRP 3.5.0_9-0. Could anyone point me to instructions about how to upgrade my exact device to the next OOS 10.x.x version under the latest Magisk, but without that OTA feature?
And if I ever decide to go to Android 11 and use Magisk, are the instructions for doing so on my specific device outlined anywhere?
Thank you very much in advance.
