Phone arrived today, got on the website, downloaded the latest August build. I did not notice it was 13. Unlocked the bootloader, flashed the image and the phone booted right up. I was about to root when I realized I was on 13 and then came here and saw the PSA about the phone can't be downgraded from 13 to a previous build.
My question (I've searched and found nothing), can I root the Pixel 6a on the official August 13 build with Magisc? Will I need to do anything differently like disable verifications and stuff? Usually I install the latest Magisk (v25.2), patch the boot.img, flash the patchedboot.img and profit.
Thanks in advance.

No. Disabling verity and verification is optional.

"Disabling verity and verification is optional"

What are the advantages or disadvantages of doing that?
