[Tips] install OTA update on POCOPHONE F1 with TWRP or other custom recovery

i've got TWRP recovery which doesn't support OTA. This means I'm unable to OTA update my POCOPHONE F1. I found simple solution to my problem.

Here's how to instal OTA on F1 with custom recovery:

1. Download stock recovery from here.
2. Flash it with fastboot or TWRP > install image.
3. Reboot to sysyem.

4. Update phone.

Optionally (because you deleted TWRP and OTA removes root):

5. Flash again TWRP with fastboot.
6. Root again (e.g. by installing Magisk zip).

If you download the full ROM, do the following steps :

• Boot to TWRP
• Flash new ROM - clear dalvik and cache
• Flash FED v4 with Magisk 18.0 - wipe dalvik and cache
• Reboot

Done! ? No data loss! Works like a charm for me.

Too bad, I always do that. Flashing recoveries over and over again is cumbersome. This way, everything is over within 10 minutes. I keep a backup at all times in case anything goes wrong, but never had to use it.

Thanks for the step-by-step.
When you say "Download stock recovery from here", you mean where exactly?
Is the same "recovery.img" file inside the compressed fastboot rom file?

You can download stock recovery from here :
Yes, it is the same file in the fastboot file.
