Hi guys so Many users are facing issue while they are rooted and twrp installed on there phone.
They can't able to Flash update through stock settings OR via twrp if they tries to flash it via twrp manually facing no wifi and Bluetooth.
So here is the process to flash any incremental update via twrp just we need update zip, vbmeta image and boot image of old oos version respective to your new update means if. We are upgrading to V11 we need V10 boot img
U can use following commands to extract your current stock boot img after connecting to PC

adb shell

dd if=/dev/block/sdc49 of=/sdcard/boot.img

exit

Note: Remember this process will replace your twrp and removes root to gain root access. We need to repeat twrp installation shown in the following tutorial
You can gain root acess only by flashing magisk.zip file after step no 7 given under instructions but I didn't tested it yet.

DOWNLOADS:
1)Download update v11 from Telegram :

2) DOWNLOAD V13:

We can also download update in system update process. Just download OTA update and when we boot in twrp just click install and then go to following folder there you will find update.zip

/data/OTA-package/update.zip

Download vbmeta:


Download boot.img:
1) upgrade from v10 to v11(indian)

2) upgrade from v11 to v13(indian)

Boot img for nord 2 EU REGION :


Instructions :
1) Download all file from the link given under this thread place them at one place on your phone so it can be easily accessible when we boot in TWRP.

2)Now to boot in TWRP use following root acess app called as advance reboot. Open it and click reboot to recovery
Or you can use adb command after connecting phone to pc in USB debugging mode.
adb reboot recovery
3) when phone boot in TWRP click install tab now go to folder where we placed All files.
4) click install image tab at bottom now you we see image files boot. img and vbmeta.img that we downloaded

5)now select boot.img and then select boot partation and slide bottom bar after successful installation

6)click reboot and select recovery phone will boots back to twrp( This step is optional)

7)Now again click Install and find our old folder now select update.zip file and slide bottom bar it will take 2min for complete falshing of zip.

8)now agian click install now click install image and select vbmeta.img

9)Now click reboot system phone will reboots and take 10min.
Now you are successfully updated and have new OOS 11.3 A11 version on your phone without any issues.

good Instructions! Reboot after flashing boot.img isnt necessary. OTA Update zip can be downloaded within OTA App in Settings (do not press reboot). After downloading you can reboot to TWRP and the file location is: /data/OTA-package/update.zip.

Yes but I don't want to go to automatic reboot and flashing process of OTA Update installation after download which may cause some issues for new users.

HI. This is my 1st OnePlus and OxygenOS. I am now on DN2103_11_A.11 and OTA is available. It is DN2103_11_A.12
Basically I can flash it from TWRP and I do not need to save and flash boot.img afterwards bec OS will be the same version. Is that so? Or am I wrong? And I have to follow threads instructions ?
Thank you

Thx. OK I do that.
Magisk is installed (patched) to boot image so after OTA and Vbmeta I flash Magisk to keep root.

U can use following commands to extract your current stock boot img after connecting to PC

adb shell

dd if=/dev/block/sdc49 of=/sdcard/boot.img

exit
Still trying to wrap my head around this (although updating worked fine from A11 to A12 on my EEA variant, thanks @pankspoo!).

Can I actually extract a stock boot.img from a Magisk-rooted phone? Is it stock (in which case why is root removed by the update.zip) or is it modified (in which case, why can I extract it as stock)?

You can use those adb commands while booted in TWRP, without being rooted. So you'll extract the stock boot image
