I don't think it is possible mate, but I could be wrong.

So your bank block access if phone is rooted ? Here in Canada my bank dont do this all work perfectly

Anyway there is an Xposed module that can hide your Root status from any app you want, so that can be a solution. You can test it if it don't work you can just of to Odin back your Original Stock ROM and you wont be rooted any more.
Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-M919V)

My Mod: S5 Status Bar for S4 : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2738359

Phone devices used in the past:
Xperia ZL
LG Optimus 2x P990
iPhone 3gs, 3g, 2g
Qtek S110 & S110
SE K800i & K750 & Z700
Nokia 6230 & 8210
+many others

Hi! It works without root
I've been compiling bits from various themes on here... I have the same issue/choice... I use both my banking app & Sky Go a lot, so don;t want to root.

You can add a custom recovery via odin, and flash stuff, just choose not to root if/when asked.

Not quite finished yet, as not happy with the settings menus... and been reluctant to share as I have stolen bits from several other themes,
can't even remember which ones, there's been so many components used to get it to this point... I've just replaced png's here & there, recolouring when I've needed to, etc...









But yes, it can be done.

I only feel the need to have themed toggles, dialler/contacts/mms, settings menu & power menu... I leave my launcher to nova & don't worry about having the apps themed as they aren't on 24/7...

...but that wasn't the question that you originally asked.
