System always reboots into TWRP

    I was using OxygenOS for over a year and decided to try something new, a custom ROM.

    I chose Pixel Experience and flashed it with Magisk, works like a charm and loved it

    After a while I couldn't decrypt my phone in TWRP even after putting the right password, so I thought I would just factory reset via TWRP.

    While doing so I lost my OS, so I reflashed OxygenOS then tried again, and managed to flash everything as usual, but after completing everything, when clicking reboot system in TWRP, it always double reboots and then reboots into TWRP again.

    Quick google search yielded possible solutions which included flashing OxygenOS and redoing the whole process, which didn't work. From what I understand it's a boot image issue but as mentioned reflashing OxygenOS didn't help.

    Help would be greatly appreciated, I thought of the possibility of flashing OxygenOS (which returns the stock recovery) and relocking then unlocking the bootloader, but hopefully someone who knows how to circumvent this issue helps.

    First, it is wise to remove your screen lock before booting back to twrp--it's just easier, though it may be less risky with newer versions of twrp.
    There are occasions when returning from a non-stock ROM to a stock ROM, when it is necessary to reflash Magisk before re-booting system. I do not know if this current case is one of them.
