I came from rooted A10 to A11 and all I did was install A11 through local upgrade in settings, don't reboot, install magisk directly(recommended), don't reboot, install magisk (Ota) then reboot. Mine was rooted and working fine. Just don't install twrp, it's not A11 ready yet.
EDIT: I did uninstall all majisk modules prior.
My model is the IN2020, which came preloaded with the Global ROM (Bought it from Catch, who used Bexetech as a supplier). it came with Android 10 (Oxygen OS 10.5.11.IN11AA). After reading around about people having issues flashing patched images on Android 11, I decided the easiest/safest way for me would be to root while still on A10, then upgrade to A11, while retaining root, so this is what I did.I just got my 8 Pro yesterday, and am researching so I can root and install Ad Aware. I've seen a few warnings about the fingerprint sensor
and another about using Magisk Canary causing issues, but others recommend it as a solution to the above.
I also saw that TWRP isn't supported on Android 11 (or maybe just this device), so that's a concern also.
I'd rather not have to 'fix' anything after a botched attempt to root, so I figured I'd ask FIRST before begging for emergency help.
Is there a current recommendation on how to proceed with a fresh phone?
Should I backup the persist.img file before beginning? Anything else I should do before starting?
Thanks in advance for some extra clarity
I would also like to know the steps. I'm looking at the tool and when selecting "Only Root" I can choose Magisk 20.4 from the list. The note in the tool says "or you can use 'Only Root' to root your phone you are already in TWRP mode." But as far as I understand there is no legitimate TWRP for our device yet.
