Sorry if this has been asked before (I couldn't find anything) but is it possible to upgrade a rooted 3aXL to Android 11? Or do I need to un-root, upgrade and try a fresh root on A11? Thanks.

Download the full image for Android 11 then use either the flash-all.bat file (will do a factory format so beware) or adb sideload it.

Going to a new version of Android it's always recommended to factory format.

Either way you will need to re-root after using magisk canary

Haha! Yeah, it's not so bad. Just a bit of a pain in the backside to fiddle around with files and ADB etc. Oh well. Thanks for the advice though!
