Added instructions to OPWill someone using Magisk and gapps please outline their steps to update the ROM?
When updating to the 17 Feb build from the earlier one, I tried sideloading the lineage zip but ran into an error. I don't remember what the error was, but I had to flash a factory image to get the device to boot again; I was then able to successfully flash the 17 Feb build.
Just sideload magisk in recovery lolI have been using the 17 Feb build with gapps, Magisk and kdrag0n's Universal SaftyNet Fix Magisk module. For anyone needing more detailed instructions, this is how I updated to the latest build.
After downloading latest ROM.zip, boot.img, and gapps:
1. Reboot to LOS Recovery, apply update > apply from ADB
2. adb sideload <filename of ROM zip>, reboot recovery
3. apply update > apply from ADB, adb sideload <filename of gapps zip>, reboot to system
At this point I checked Magisk Manager, and Magisk was not installed.
To re-install Magisk:
4. Transfer boot.img to phone, and patch with Magisk Manager using Install > select and patch a file; transfer patched boot.img to computer
5. Reboot to bootloader, fastboot flash boot <filename of patched boot img>, reboot system
I checked Magisk Manager again; Magisk was installed, and SafetyNet passed. All Magisk modules were still enabled, and Manager retained root permissions and Hide settings.
I am not used to flashing without TWRP, so there may be a better way to do this; I am simply sharing what worked for me and hope it helps somebody else.
yes, except that from v22.0 magisk comes as "Magisk-v22.0.apk", which you can sideload despite being an apk (yes, i know it's confusing)Of course there's an easier way.
Is this correct? adb sideload ROM and reboot recovery, adb sideload gapps, adb sideload magisk.zip, reboot system
Had no problem with magisk install, but something is going on with safetynet check.Anyone else have any issues while re-applying Magisk after the latest update?
The app survived the OTA but, as usual, the Magisk was not itself installed. So, I get a stock image, select and patch the file in Magisk, and then attempt to 'fastboot flash boot [magisk.img]'. It installs no issues but fails SafetyNet.
"SafetyNet API Error"
Yes A/B updates are engineered to run quietly in the background.installed the new OTA update (20210407) and everything works well, thank you.
Just one thing, the update process took about one hour (the download itself was fast) is this normal ?
fastboot flash boot boot.img
