blockdev --setrw /dev/block/by-name/abl_a ;
dd if=/sdcard/abl.img of=/dev/block/by-name/abl_a;
if current was slot b ,the flash commands are :
su
dd if=/dev/block/by-name/abl_b of=/sdcard/abl.img.bak

Finally I updated to f.18
I restored my abl.img.bak, than restored magisk image, than installed ota update, than installed magisk to inactive slot, than installed abl.img from f.11 and finally I have f.18 with root and without orange state message.
Hello!!

Do you mind sharing the steps you took to restore your abi.img.bak? I would really appreciate it.

Thank you!!!!

Hello, after this steps you will have abl.img and abl.img.bak on main storage.
abl.img.bak is your original (backuped) abl.
If you want restore it you can rename abl.img.bak to abl.img (before it delete or rename abl.img (modded) to abl.img.bak2 or something else) and follow those steps in terminal again:
su
dd if=/dev/block/by-name/abl_a of=/sdcard/abl.img.bak
blockdev --setrw /dev/block/by-name/abl_a ;
dd if=/sdcard/abl.img of=/dev/block/by-name/abl_a;
if current was slot b ,the flash commands are :
su
dd if=/dev/block/by-name/abl_b of=/sdcard/abl.img.bak
blockdev --setrw /dev/block/by-name/abl_b ;
dd if=/sdcard/abl.img of=/dev/block/by-name/abl_b ;

Okay,while you upgrade your op9pro to oos 13 ,and unlock your phone ,you'll got Orange state message , F.16 is upgrade from F.11 ,so ive extract both F.11 & F.16 playload.bin ,and compared each partition of them : those red bleow are different partition between OOS 13.0.0 F.16 and OBT OOS 13.0.0 F.11

so ,which partition contains orange state messages ?

i'm worked for a while try to figure out ,finally ,after extract abl.img ,i got LinuxLoader , use winhex to search key word Orange :

F.16 contains orange state ,F.11 not.

maybe flash F.11's abl.img partition would remove the orange state message text ?

anyone could have a try ? haha ,i'm not sure ,i only have one phone ,I‘ll try it when I am on vacation
In that case, a wouldn't it be possible to create custom boot logos?

    The steps are below:
    1. upgrade from c66 to F16 & do not reboot
    2. magisk patch another slot & do not reboot
    3. dd flash abl.img
    4. reboot & upgrade
    5. you'll got stuck at setupwizard ,if uninstall com.coloros.bootreg ,also you can entered the desktop ,but full screen gestures may not work properly .
    6 . reboot to recovery & clear all data ,and everything works well !
    soooooooooooooooo....I was already on F16. Just wanted to say that all I did was
    1. Got abl.img from F11 and placed at /sdcard
    2. Restore images from Magisk
    3. Magisk patch to other slot
    4. got into a root shell and ran "blockdev --setrw /dev/block/sde13" and "dd if=/sdcard/abl.img of=/dev/block/sde13"
    5. Rebooted

    no longer have orange prompt and everything is working normal.

    I'm finding many people not liking most of the new stuff resulting from the OPPO merger. Namely, the refusal to release kernel source or MSMTool for 10 series. I wanted a 10 pro, maybe 10T, but got the 9 pro as I'm not going without custom stuff.

    I've been plastering comments all over the OnePlus Community forums, especially quoting and addressing employees and company folks, even Pete Lau. None of them have responded, lol. I just hope they get it together and hopefully make the "right" decision(s) before the OnePlus that many of us, or at least the OnePlus that I personally know and love, is dead and gone. Outlook kinda bleak ATM. Unless something changes in these regards, this 1+9pro will be my last 1+ device. And I'll admit its a little much to be emotional over a phone, but it really does break my heart.
    I'm with you. I've made a dozen posts here and reddit with the same thoughts. OnePlus became successful because of us 'techies' having a great experience and putting our friends and family onto OnePlus devices. That's gone now. I told my techie friend to get a 9 pro if anything and I'm telling everyone else to wait. I've been thru samsung and Nexus and Pixel devices. No plans to go back to them. I have a lot of hope in Nothing Phone 2/3 or maybe I'll just get another 9P and stay on oos11 for eternity. It is really sad, I'm with you. We are all with you.

    I bought a 10T and didn't know the msm situation. I thought maybe I could work around that since I just need root and don't tend to custom rom. The problem was, oos12 on the 10T was absolute trashcan sauce. I couldn't get over the bad UI AND no msm/development happening. It doesn't feel like a premium device coming from a 7/8/9Pro but I was willing to ignore that too. It wasn't enough for me to stay. I reset it, relocked the bootloader, bricked it (forgot to flash stock boot image back after reset lol). I sent it back and waited 5+ weeks for a refund as their new customer service is also trash can soup. Our real beloved OP is dead.

    The 9p will live on for a good while, especially with finds like this thread. I was tempted to replace my 7tp5g screen and battery for $200ish but I may just get another 9P for whenever this one dies.

    Sorry we hijacked the thread a bit. Orange text removal is really quite great. Maybe we can conquer everything for the 9P in time. Dual sim in the Tmo model working part time, there must be a way to make it work. The Indian MSM tool changing target ID to IN, there must be a way to undo that too.

    One find at a time, I'll be here for a while

    Sorry, I'm a bit of a novice, could you tell me the steps one by one so as not to brick the phone?
