OMG THANKS FOR THIS! I will try ASAP. I was waiting for this for a long time haha

Thank you for your work!!

Edit: Can we use systemless xposed with magisk, since you put it on th title? I mean, is not necessary to instal xposed from recovery, right?

Edit2: Following the instructions in OP, it works like a charm!! Thank you! I flashed the TWRP, installed the zip and then, reboot system, that's all.

why use the command "fastboot flash boot_a twrp.img" ? if you are on slot b it will do nothing. and that command it's not temporary twrp. you need to change slot all time using "set active-slot AorB" using fastboot because flash twrp only works on inactive slot.
you can just use "fastboot boot twrp.img" to boot on twrp then flash zip.

Since your flashed zip, your system is already deodexed.
So you can install xposed at Xposed Installer or Magisk.

because you need Twrp to flash this zip.
if you use slob_b, it can deodex olny slot_b
No need switch AoB partition

my zip include boot.img therefore twrp will be replaced.

if you are in "set active_slot b":
Code:
fastboot flash boot  = fastboot flash boot_b
The reverse is the opposite

You don't really understand how temp twrp and a/b work. I will try to explain.

Unofficial TWRP support "boot" only.
So you can boot into TWRP without installing it, using the command "fastboot boot twrp.img"
(The phone will automatically boot TWRP on active slot, a or b, we don't care)
Then you need to decrypt data using your PIN password.
Now you are able to flash zip, like on official TWRP ... ( it will automatically install on current slot)
Reboot system and done. (TWRP is gone, because it's not install) that's it.

in your guide you say to flash boot_a, but you explain nothing, for exemple my current slot is b, if I flash boot_a then reboot it will do nothing, I hope your understand that. so I think use my steps or explain is really really needed for newbies etc

Yes, I understand, I can write a little more.

Now deodexed patch is Fixed on A Slot, I will re-write zip.

Thank you.:)
