Perfect info. Thanks a lot.1. no ota before official los status.
2. sure no, you can update by dirty flashing without wiping anything.
when you are encrypted, just remove lockscreen before booting to twrp an flashing update. in the past twrp messed things up when updating encrypted, today twrp cant decrypt with pin on android 11 for now. so just remove lockscreen in security settings before updating and you are good to go.
