It's not the boundary of the parallel space that requires root...

Root is required to install the app to that space...its access requires root...

You don't need root or a special tool to install apps to Parallel Apps. All you have to do is specify --user 999 when installing an app through ADB. Parallel Apps is basically a work profile with a different ID and icon, but without the work profile integrations and the addition of the settings menu for it. Also, Parallel Apps has Play Services but not the Play Store, unlike Work Profiles created through Island/Shelter which installs both.

Exactly what I was looking for ! Thanks a lot for that not so documented nor known adb option.

Great and thanks

Is there a command to create a work instance of an already installed apk ?
Meaning without saving apk from classic storage and pushing it back to work parallel space.

There is also a xposed module "Oneplus PA Extender"

By installing it any app can be added to parallel apps.

So does it also creates the same space as yours or different ?

Could you please confirm

Good question. You could probably automate this getting the path of the installed APK for the personal profile (eg. "dumpsys package <package>") and then feeding that path to "pm install --user 999."
