Is the file version correct for the device you downloaded?

Flashing instructions are pretty straight forward - i did missed two steps vendor & Odm, just updated the post.

Can you share your steps what you followed - just specifics

Example:

  1. Unlock BL - Fastboot OEM unlock
  2. enabled adb debug
  3. adb reboot bootloader
  4. Fastboot -w
  5. etc..
Yes of course
I have indian firmware and I have installed global OOS 11.0.8.11.KB05AA using local updatet
1. Unlocked BL with
Code:
sudo fastboot oem unlock
2. Rebooted into system
3. Rebooted into fastboot
4. Flashed PE recovery
Code:
sudo fastboot flash recovery PixelExperience_kebab-11.0-20210315-1314-OFFICIAL.img
5. Rebooted into recovery
6. Sideloaded copy-partitions-20210323_1922.zip
Code:
 sudo adb sideload copy-partitions-20210323_1922.zip
7. Rebooted to recovery
8. Wiped DATA
9. Sideloaded PixelExperience_kebab-11.0-20210315-1314-OFFICIAL.zip
Code:
 sudo adb sideload PixelExperience_kebab-11.0-20210315-1314-OFFICIAL.zip
and then
Code:
 Error applying update: 7 (ErrorCode::kInstallDeviceOpenError)
appear at this step

Maybe because of indian firmware on the first place ? I tried not updating to AA, same problem.
I tried installing LineageOS with the exact same procedure and it works but because of SafetyNet and some weird problems related to audio I need something else
Ignore "sudo", i'm running linux, I need to run adb & fastboot with elevated privileges

    I guessed it was Linux push - i had got my success in Ubuntu aswell, see if this helps you.

    Use payload dumper to extract the payload.bin and place the extracted image files to platform tools - links are read - ideas is to create file ready to flash everything manually.

    you can get help from

    set up payload dumper:

    Assuming this would be done already:

    Another helpful link for fastboot linux push


    Than flash everything manually - just re-pasting the previous instruction to club this post

    fastboot -w
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot reboot fastboot
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
    fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot flash system_ext system_ext.img
    fastboot flash product product.img
    fastboot flash odm odm.img
    fastboot flash vendor vendor.img
    fastboot reboot

    No need to format if coming from stock rom - i usually do it at start if not dirty.

    let me know if helped or missed anything.

    Someone tell me if I'm correct. I'm getting a 8T tomorrow and want to make sure these are the right steps.

    So if i want root, I'd need to flash the rom and boot.img like normal, then boot into android, install the magisk app, copy the boot.img to the phone, use the app the patch the boot.img, connect the phone to pc, copy over the patched boot.img then flash it?

    Jeez, I miss the old days of just being able to flash the root zip after flashing rom.

    I can recommend this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/guide-oneplus-8t-easy-root-for-all-unlocked-variants.4210775/

    For me thats the easiest way to gain root on the 8T.

    personally i tend to avoid bank transfers via phone with or without root (privacy is a myth anyways), to access the account summary i use third party app e.g. "creed" for CC and use Paytm for UPI transfer they don't care about root status ;)

    - Magisk hide
    Thanks i will try later on, magisk hide worked flawlessly till now but i have been always at oos so its rarely problem then🙂 what comes to privacy, i use warden to my banking apps, knowing thats maybe not enough, but theres no better alternatives at my knowledge of trust😅

    Hello, I would like to ask you some questions about installing the image of the Pixel Experience, Magisk and fingerprint.

    I apologize in advance for my approximate English.

    1- Having followed the installation, and several tests of the first procedure of the official page document, ie:
    - Copy of Recovery (which works well)
    - Copy of partitions (which has functioned)
    - Copy of the .zip file of Pixel Experience (which did not work, with the command adb sideload <filename> .zip ->
    Mapping Update without arrival as said in the procedure at 47%)

    2- I have resolved to use payload_dumper and reuse the procedure taken on the forum: ###########################################
    fastboot -W
    fastboot Flash Recovery Recovery.img
    fastboot reboot fastboot
    fastboot Flash boot boot.img
    fastboot Flash dtbo dtbo.img
    fastBoot --disable-verity Flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot flash system_ext system_ext.img
    fastboot flash product product.img
    fastboot Flash odm odm.img
    fastboot flash vendor vendor.img
    fastboot reboot
    ###########################################
    -> who worked well.

    3- My question is: what to do in a new update of the Pixel Experience (for the month of May 2021), it must be started on point number 2-?
    Will there be possibility to update via the system (Settings tab -> Systems -> System Update) ...

    4- I used a procedure for the installation of magisk (ie recovery of the boot.img of the Pixel Experience system of 2021_04_19 and the Magisk archive to put at the root of the Android system) and via the Magisk Manager to generate the magisk.img patch and install it.
    Is there a relation between the new update of the Pixel Experience system (example: for May 2021) and Magisk concerning the procedure of point number 4- (concerning the recovery of boot.img that will not be the Even)
    Will it always have to pass this way to maintain the rooting of the phone?

    5 - I have some problems with my fingerprint who in most cases tells me that my fingerprint is not recognized and rarely it recognizes it. (I add the same finger several times), but the problem of recognition of the footprint comes back. (I have placed a protection screen, and my fingers are clean, no dalsure), would you have encountered the same problems?

    I thank you all for your questions and answers on this forum that helped me a lot.
    Well to you,

      No issues whatsoever

      Ummm.. can this rom flash on a China Retail version of 8T? I'm following the install guide on the offical website, but I getting a “Error applying update: 7 (ErrorCode::kInstallDeviceOpenError) E:Error in /sideload/package.zip (status 1)"

      device's product_name is "kona" rather than "kebab", model number is "KB2000"

      sorry for my bad english.

      You need to put the zip file in the same folder as where the adb and fastboot is located. Than it will work :)

      New instructions to flash - NOOB Friendly:


      1. Download the latest build
      2. Download the latest platform tools, if you haven't already: https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools
      3. Extract the adb and fastboot drivers zip and add that folder to path (if you don't know how to add a path, google it)
      4. Enable USB debugging via developer options on your phone and after that connect your phone via USB to PC
      5. Extract only the recovery.img file from the ROM zip
      6. Open a command prompt window where the extracted recovery.img is present, and enter the following one by one:

      Code:
      adb reboot bootloader
      fastboot boot recovery.img

      7.From the phone's recovery page, do the following:

      Factory reset -> Format data/factory reset -> Format data.

      8. Go back to recovery page from clicking back.

      9. Select "Apply Update -> Apply from ADB"

      10. From the command window already opened, sideload the rom using:
      Code:
      adb sideload <ROM>.zip
      (Replace <ROM> with actual ROM file name)

      11. If you want to root, after first boot, reboot to recovery again, select "Apply Update -> Apply from ADB"

      12. Connect your phone to PC, open a command prompt window where Magisk zip is located, execute:
      Code:
      adb sideload <MagiskFileName>.zip
      (Replace <MagiskFileName> with actual file name)


      For updating, open a command prompt window where the new ROM zip is present, execute:
      Code:
      fastboot reboot recovery
      , then follow steps 9-12.

      Old instructions:

      @GDZechariah @Moffei97 @firdoshakir @matteosaeed @manhong2112

      The zip is flashable, but without the twrp, you can't flash that way.

      Instructions to flash (noob friendly):

      YOUR BOOTLOADER SHOULD BE UNLOCKED

      1. Flash OOS 11 on both slots (Use local upgrade option/flash via fastbootd).

      2. Check using this app if u have OOS on slot_b:-
      https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=flar2.devcheck

      1-2. (ALTERNATE WAY) - Flash OOS to slot_b via fastbootd and set the active partition as slot_b.

      3. Download the latest Pixel experience ROM.

      4. Download and install Python3 on your PC (TICK THE ADD PYTHON TO PATH OPTION):-
      https://www.python.org/downloads/

      5. Download payload dumper and extract its zip:-
      https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=818070582850510260

      6. The Pixel Experience ROM should be on ur PC.

      7. Now extract the Pixel Experience ROM.

      8. Put the "payload.bin" file from the extracted ROM file to payload dumper/payload_input

      9. Run payload dumper.exe

      10. Wait for all files to be extracted.

      11. Now install adb and fastboot drivers (Skip to step 13, if you already have it):-
      https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools

      12. Extract the adb and fastboot drivers zip and add that folder to path (if you don't know how to add a path, google it).

      13. Enable USB debugging via developer options on your phone and after that connect your phone via USB to PC.

      14. Now go to payload dumper/ payload_output folder and open a command window there.

      15. On the command window, type the following commands one by one:

      Code:
      adb reboot bootloader
      fastboot -w
      fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
      fastboot reboot fastboot
      fastboot flash boot boot.img
      fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
      fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
      fastboot --disable-verity flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
      fastboot flash system system.img
      fastboot flash system_ext system_ext.img
      fastboot flash product product.img
      fastboot flash odm odm.img
      fastboot flash vendor vendor.img
      fastboot reboot

      16. Done! Enjoy Pixel experience ROM

      For updating subsequent builds of Pixel Experience ROM, download the latest build, follow steps 7-10, 14-15. But in step 15, skip the "fastboot -w" command.
