Need help unrooting my OnePlus 5.
Latest Magisk update has caused lots of problem with my device. I tried to update via app and it didnt work succesfully...so after mannualy flashing the v13.1 zip via TWRP the app still asks me to update :(
I decided lets get rid of magisk and used the unistaller zip file which now has changed my recovery back to stock recovery....argh..
I've had enough and would like to go back to stock so I can root again, but this time stick to v12 as its working.
What are the steps I need to take?
Please advise.

Download the full zip (1+ GB file) and dirty flash it. It will overwrite twrp and unroot you as well.:good:

So here's what I did.
Downloaded the signed OOS 5.5.X file from the OP support page.
As my phone had stock recovery installed - flashed TWRP via fast-boot.
In TWRP - formatted my phone..so all of the previous magisk files were deleted.

Then plugged in to PC to transfer the OOS zip and then flasshed that via TWRP.
After a minute or so, the phone was alive and running unrooted (boot-loader still unlocked)

Attempted to root via magisk v13.1 (download and flash it via TWRP)....all good. Safety check passed.

Would prefer if someone would make a toolkit (I think its called msm.. remember using it on my OP3T) which would revert the device back to stock factory.
