Credits and Thanks goes to BlackMesa123 for this post for OEM patch script.

Important Note for Pie – There will be OEM unlock option there in developer setting but it will be disabled and can not enabled, this is because of it is hacked. Just ignore it. You can not boot device with TWRP if it is really disabled. Also If magisk app may not appear then simply download Magisk_for_Pie.apk from below attachement and install as regular app.
