    Hi @L1531558684761, I did the same as you, following instructions. Now my phone starts and on pin code screen immediately reboot into twrp recovery. I can't afford to have my data/applications wiped, how did you sort out this problem?

    Thanks you anyone from you advices!

    You need to add the bank app to Magisk Hide.

    I was able to follow this process just fine last time I installed an OTA update, but now after the Magisk Uninstall step I still get this message in the OTA update screen:
    "Root is detected, system will begin downloading the full upgrade package. To ensure your data integrity, please perform a backup. Your device will be un-rooted once the upgrade is completed."

    This is for the Oxygen OS 9.0.9 update on the OnePlus 6. Does that message meant that Magisk didn't "uninstall" properly?

    The steps I'm following:
    - Turn on USB Debugging, Titanium Backup everything
    - Turn off USB Debugging
    - Magisk Manager -> Uninstall All Modules
    - Magisk Manager -> Uninstall -> Restore Images. Do not reboot or you will have Magisk uninstalled.
    - Now Update the system and let it install completely. Do not press the reboot button.
    - Now install TWRP A/B Retention Script from Magisk Manager
    - Go to (Magisk Manager -> Install Magisk -> Install to Inactive Slot) and install Magisk
    - Once Magisk is done flashing, press the reboot button in the console window

    That's unrelated to Magisk. What that means is, it detected the bootloader is unlocked and is downloading the full ROM instead of the incremental one.

    My phone boot loop after doing this step. Update Magisk then reboot. Any ideas on how to fix it? I'm on latest stock ROM

    Already restart the phone but still stuck at spinning circle.

    Should I just reflash TWRP and Magisk over fastboot?

    Edit: I can enter TWRP recovery btw. In TWRP I check the current slot: B.

    Any ideas?

    This is known as a "bootloop". This is specifically why I reinstall TWRP and Magisk instead as it's a much easier process. You might need to use an unbrick tool.

    Actually, if you read the post again, it says this: "Your phone may get into bootloop once, if that happens just restart the phone again."

    Yeah, I already force shutdown (power button + volume up) then power on my device but it seems stuck forever at the spinning circle.

    Wait, power button and volume up? I don't think this is the right method.
