Did you re-install Magisk to the empty slot before you updated your device?Why did this latest update cause a loss of root? Am I missing something that's obvious to everyone else? Or is there an easy fix that can be pointed out to me? I just don't really feel like going through all the steps of extracting the appropriate boot image and rooting through a pc every time there's an update. I don't mind once or twice, but not every time. Surely I'm overlooking something. Thanks in advance.
Thanks, worked like a charm! Yes, I’ll get around to patching my own boot image eventually. The commands that worked for me were:
flashboot flash boot_a patched_boot.img flashboot flash boot_b patched_boot.img
Why not just flash the Magisk zip file in recovery just like you flashed the ROM? No patching or flashing of boot.img necessary.
I did that initially but it did not work. The magisk app showed that it was not installed. So I had to extract and patch boot.img.
I dont need magisk and dont want it eitherIf you are rooted with magisk you can use riru lsposed + xprivacylua magisk hide to get safteynet working (my OP8 is on the July patch due to no updates yet).
The only major downside to this method is it will break google call screening. You can re enable it but 3-4$ donation is required to enable the manage hook assignments feature.
First of all, it has to be flashed through Fastboot because TWRP for Android 10 isn't really finished yet, devs have a hard time finding ways to comply with Android 10 new system, that's why there are a lot of those Fastboot ROMs.why does it have to be done that way thru adb? maybe twrp flashable to come because i doubt I'll try to install it that way. I'm excited by the prospect of the rom very much but I'll let a few guinea pigs go first and keep tabs on this. Is the lack of custom rom development because developers are waiting for android 11 or what? One of the main reasons I decided on OP8 was because i thought the forum would be very active and its been kinda disappointing thus far. Does anyone know when theres gonna be the official android 11 update not this open beta bullshit? also when an official twrp recovery?
Get extracted boot.img and put into phone, open magisk and patch boot.img. Magisk outputs a patched boot.img in downloads. Transfer to pc where ADB lives, reboot to bootloader and enter fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img. Should flash to phone and Magisk has given root.
