I've been using below steps to update my OP6 while preserving root. Thought of sharing with you all :)

I've been using this method for all recent updates like 9.0.9 ->10.3.0->10.3.5->10.3.6->10.3.7->10.3.8->10.3.9->10.3.11->11.1.1.1

My OP6 info:
TWRP: 3.2.3-x | blu_spark v9.91
Magisk: 23.0

Steps:
enable system update app if it's disabled
nandroid backup (optional)
enable any disabled system apps like youtube
- download OTA updated zip: via Oxygen Updater App -> Full Update option
- Install it: System Settings -> Local Upgrade option (don't reboot).
- Once installed: go to Magisk -> run TWRP retention script from osm0sis (don't reboot).
- Again in Magisk, install magisk -> install to inactive slot (don't reboot yet).
- Then on modules list, disable all modules and then finally...
- Reboot, this reboot will take some minutes...
- after reboot, re enable all modules and everything will work perfectly.
The System Updater and Magisk do all the work, never ever once having to boot into recovery.

With rooted version 10.3.x I updated this way without any problems:


* Download full stock rom (same as from OxygenUpdater), latest TWRP (now 3.5) and lastest Magisk (now 23.0) onto sdcard of device.
* Reboot into TWRP recovery
* Flash stock ROM and then TWRP without intermediate reboot
* Reboot into TWRP recovery again
* Flash Magisk
* Reboot normally.

I left all disabled system apps such as e.g. Youtube app, disabled. I did the update manually without using Oxygenupdater, the latter only for verifying the MD5 of the ROM.

Can this also be done with flashing 11.1.1 ROM ?

Sorry, please explain "modules list". In what context is this please?

Quick note. Do not re-enable Smali Patcher if that was one of your previously enabled modules. The framework used to create the patch was from the previous android OS version, so it'll just spin when booting. To fix it follow the official recommendation from the smali patcher FAQ which is Boot into TWRP > Advanced > File Manager > navigate to data > adb > modules > select the module directory (in this case "fomey.smalipatcher" > folder icon in the bottom right > delete.

Does the method in the OP work for updating from 11.1.1.1 to 11.1.2.2? Or is it only for updating from earlier versions of Oxygen to 11.x?

@JerryGoyal .
Hi, I am on OP6 on OOS version 10.3.5 with Magisk root version 21.4 and twrp recovery. Also XXX nolimts Rom installed. I have no issues with the current version of OOS, and have disabled the update with 'Xxx nolimits' rom. I am unable to use banking apps since the Magisk hide apparently doesn't work for them. Only 'phonepe' works till now, but it's only a matter of time when they behave like 'yono sbi' app too. I have heard that this is because of the safetynet check failure. I have tried installing the module 'universal safetynet fix' but it didn't work. I have an unlocked bootloader as well, I don't know if that is relevant. Please help.
