Hello! I just updated to the latest OTA of OOS 5.0 and now the phone is just stuck on the screen where the white dots spin around :( I tried clearing cache, wiped "System settings" via Oxygen Recovery and no luck. I sideloaded the zip to my device and flashed it over the one I had on it previously. I followed this guide https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-5/how-to/guide-restore-data-stuck-bootloop-n-o-t3724515 without any results! :( This is ridiculous. I just wanted to update to Oreo. Here are my phone details: https://imgur.com/a/n4rtR I am unsure what to try next. Should I wipe /system and flash the previous ROM zip file and try that? I can see my files but they are completely encrypted thanks to OOS, but only can I see them in Oxygen Recovery; TWRP shows nothing. Suggestions would be appreciated, thank you.

I was on OOS 4.5.15 with Magisk root and TWRP. Last night, uninstalled Magisk and I flashed stock recovery to update my phone. Even though I cleared cache and Dalvik, boot loop happened.
Only after a full reset, the phone boot normally. Since I had all important files backed up, I did not loose anything but it still bothers me. There should have been a more streamlined update process.

You have to do a full wipe (system, data, internal storage, and both cache) when going from Nougat to Oreo. That is the only way.
