This update focuses primarily on two issues relating to flashing OTAs:
Uncrypting errors: some users experienced issues while uncrypting freshly downloaded OTAs (app crash or corrupted uncrypt). This issue should now be solved. If this ever failed for you, there is a good chance your next OTA flash attempt will fail again as well (with a red line complaining about an invalid ZIP file), due to left-over files. The solution is to simply do it twice.
Multi-stage OTAs: some recent OTAs install in multiple stages; they first flash a new recovery to the boot partition (that is not a typo), then boot to that recovery to perform the rest of the firmware update. FlashFire can now directly handle these OTAs without going through recovery.
Note that sometimes, after flashing an OTA, the device may still boot to recovery (and show you an error message). Simply reboot the device if that happens - it doesn't mean the flash failed.
Google Play should start rolling out the new version in a couple of hours. You can also grab the APK directly from own servers (link below).
Discussion thread at XDA:
Direct APK download:
Add support for multi-stage OTAs
Fix possible NPE during OTA uncrypt
Fix logic failure during OTA uncrypt
Fix unsupported root detection
Fix root detection sometimes failing
Prefer system-supplied reboot binary to our own
Adjust timebomb for non-Pro users to September 01, 2017
NOTE: Sometimes OTA still reboots to recovery with an error, just reboot manually
Fantastic! Noob question: Can FlashFire works with MagiskSU or only SuperSU and partially Phh Superuser?
Great work, this genius little App saves a lot of trouble for many of us ?
Thank you so much
I've been trying to use Flashfire to flash the 7.1.2 ota to my Pixel XL and it hasn't been working. It looks like it flashes, reboots twice but says that I'm still on 7.1.1. Thoughts?
I own a Google Pixel Xl. Does FlashFire .57 work on the pixel xl and are there any options that I need to check or uncheck first?

I had a lot of problems using Flashfire. I think it is dangerous. Yesterday night I was flashing A ROM (md5} on my Galaxy J2. After the 'Loading' screen appears I see the 'SAMSUNG' logo. But it has paST 1 minute, the 'SAMSUNG' logo doesn't go. even it persists after 30 minutes and nothing happens. I started to flash at half past 11 at night. But even it was quarter past 12 it persisted. When it was morning I found my device turned off. WHAT DOES IT MEAN!?? You know TWRP cannot flash .md5 files, so I attempted to flash with this but I this caused me a lot of problems.I thought that the phone may be bricked. I think after this use I have to flash with Mobile Odin.
+Brian Gold don't use magisk on pixel lol. Even threads state issues. :) Hope that helps.
+Azraf Zabeer Barno Te recomiendo utilizar la versión Flashfire V0.53 Pro final, esta me funciona correctamente
