This ota will work on an unrooted device but for those of us who are rooted we would need partitions that are already updated like yours is now. The incrementals as far as I know will only flash to an unmodified device. I tried flashing in twrp but it fails due to sum checks not matching I'm pretty sure

Sorry I assumed it was the OTA I just looked and it's the boot images and vbmetas... But we could still use the dumped partitions if u want to contribute

Posting a flash script here that can be used later if anyone decides to dump the October firmware for us, we would need these partitions in order to make this flash script work as a full recovery tool:::::

im not sure about keymaster but it gets updated during an incremental update(all of these do) so if it doesn't contain device specific info then this def has to be flashed as well..... If it does contain device specific info then we need to figure a way to flash the update for this partition from the incremental

Yes I was dumping my partition and I got a low storage space warning, and my anxiety kicked in and I cancelled the partition extraction process .

I'm on my way now to buy an SD card. I hope I can find one in pink color.

Edit should I uninstall any modules that I put through magic before dumping the partition

There's gonna be 2 Google drive links for the partition.

One will contain the yellow partition thats shown in the pic in the previous replay.

The 2nd link will be the rest of it minus the userdata

Edit:
Compressing into rar archive (12+ gigabytes)

Edit:
Unsuccessful in compressing. Corrupt header error. I will try again later and send you the link

Hey Guys!
So I have the Tmobile variant, GN2200_11_A.08 Nord N20 5G completely stock. No root, no modifications. Bootloader still locked (although OEM unlock toggle is available, haven't requested a code yet). I'm sitting on Oct 5 security patch. Also have an 8 digit serial number. Slot A is GSM. Slot B is Arch 64 somehow. This phone is my daily driver.

Lurking since 2017, I am a total noob and probably pretty stupid too, having only flashed a few CustomROMs on my 5T and some LG phones long ago, bootlooping all of them at least once. Never made a backup, just putting personal files onto SD or pc. You get the picture.

My main goal is to have V4A working on this phone. I want to help. Is there anything I can do?

    I triedV4a on this device

    V4a says to install BusyBox so I do and it says BusyBox not detected.. can you figure out how to get V4a working on this device
    From prior experience with v4a and busy box, I think you have to set SELinux to permissive to get v4a running properly. SELinux set to Enforcing (default) may be preventing your v4a app from recognizing busybox. And different versions of viper requires different versions of busybox I think(I might be wrong here). If SELinux is permissive, v4a should install everything thing it needs and reboot the phone. But it may have changed since last I messed with it.
