    So I've not too long updated my 5t from OS 9.0.11 to OS 10.0.1 and it seems stable, but time will tell how stable it is. So here's some of the things I've noticed so far.

    There's a keyboard gap at the bottom of the screen. (Such abomination)
    Dark mode works properly.
    For those of u who use gcam, the Dotfix 5.7 is broken, so you'll have to disable it for now or NO app that has camera access will work when trying to use the camera within said app. (Yes I'm rooted with unlocked bootloader)
    EIS seems to be working for me, I think.
    Seems to have two File Managers.
    There's no calling issue so far and definitely no call recording, at least not for me. Don't really know the situation bout that.

    That is about it for now.

    Edit 1

    10.0.1 definitely feels faster.
    It seems like the Download app is now the Files app.
    ambient display is a bit cooler.
    Dotfix v6.0 has been released for OOS 10.0.1.
    keyboard gap still freaks me out.
    OOS 10.0.1 is stable.

    I get this message when I try to upgrade. I think the update unroots the phone. That probably why dotfix doesn't work.
    Suggestions, explanations and work around ideas welcomed.😅

    I downloaded 10.0.1 via Oxygen Updater. Installed it through twrp and installed magisk just after flashing 10.0.1 before rebooting my device.

    The reason is Dotfix 5.7 just isn't compatible with oos10.0.1. Has nothing to do with the phone being unrooted after the update. However there is now Dotfix 6.0 which was released yesterday to work with 10.0.1. u just need to get back your root and flash the new Dotfix 6.0.

    What exactly do you mean by get your root back? Will I have to root the phone again?

    Whenever u update your phone, as far as I can remember, it removes your root hence the update warning. After u update , depending on how u got your root, u just get the root back and the stuff that requires root access should be working again.

    I rooted by flashing twrp and installing using magisk manager. I have updated a couple of times after rooting and never got this warning msg. So, I'm unsure.

    When you update a rooted device using full ROM, your recovery is replaced with stock one.
    So your bootloader is still unlocked, but you need to flash a custom recovery again if you wish to grant root access.
    This has been standard procedure with root for ages.

    Hmmm.... I see, I had a custom recovery once but then I switched back to stock recovery. The way I re-root my phone is I extract the boot.img from the update zip file and patch it in the magisk app then flash the patched boot.img in fastboot.
