fastboot update pa-ruby-alpha-1-oneplus8-20201122-image.zip

it will auto reboot when done
screen become mess can't see anything

adb devices

this should show your device id

adb reboot bootloader (the recovery extract from payload of pa-ruby-alpha-2-oneplus8-20201221.zip)

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

volume botton select boot to recovery
recovery will suggest factory reset do it
when finish it will auto reboot
reboot to 1st setup screen setting up rom
reboot to recovery Apply update from ADB

adb reboot recovery

volume botton select apply update from adb
press power to confirm

adb sideload pa-ruby-alpha-2-oneplus8-20201221.zip

wait the rom update
back to recovery screen press power to reboot
wait the rom reboot finished.

I hope this help.

Now me. I'm trying to flash back to OOS. But I have no windows computer to use MSMTool. Lol
You don't have to use MSM Download tool.

Simply extract the payload.bin from a stable OOS11 image with payload_dumper, switch to output dir and run the following:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
fastboot flash modem modem.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
fastboot reboot fastboot

I'd recommend to use a stable OOS 11. Last time I flashed OB5 and was left with forced EDL mode and had then to use MSM Download Tool.

Will this method relock the bootloader if my device has an unlocked bootloader?

Hey Y'all

I can only download the image.zip's (pa-ruby-beta-2-oneplus8pro-20210126-signed-image) not the standard zip you use with the adb sideload command.

Does anyone know where I can find this file?

First release is just a image zip, and this is technically the first release for the oneplus8pro target. You can just flash it in bootloader with "fastboot update zip" OTAs will be put out starting with the second release.

Since your the maintainer does this have Verizon blobs included. As Verizon finally updated to a11 and everything I've flashed results in no data. Sim greyed out and no way to add apn's to aquire data. ? Please and thanks beforehand.

Some things that could use improvement:
The Haptics
Opening and closing apps on the home screen can be quite laggy. (Disabling blurs fixed this.)
When charging the phone keeps displaying charging slowly.
Sometimes the FP sensor has trouble in apps that utilize biometric security. (Usually after relocking and unlocking my phone, the FP sensor will work in apps)

Some feature suggestions:
The option to show the volume panel on the left.
Same volume panel style as Paranoid Quartz
Set an schedule for the AOD .
Change the AOD brightness.
Pocket detection for the AOD.
Reverse wireless charging.
Unlink ring & notification volume.

Edit: Some additions
