I tried the same thing but couldn't make it work. I think it is due to the fact that the "System Status" is custom (or modified) since magisk modifies the "boot" partition, and that you probably installed a custom recovery to install magisk. That's why OTA also don't work without first flashing back the original boot and recovery images. I don't have an LG to verify that the "System Status" appears on those.
If it does, what could be tried is to install xposed and a module that fakes the system status (if you've got marshmallow or before)

I hope magisk will work more effectively to where I can use exposed and its modules. After jellybean, magisk wasn't able to allow exposed to be used because of the way Android sets up its environment to execute apps. Hopefully soon a work around will be accomplished especially since Oreo is coming to my two devices by the end of the year, I guess if not sooner.
Sorry, once knox is tripped there is no going back. However, installing Magisk fools the phone into thinking knox is still untriggerred (0x0). By reflashing the original firmware, what you did is restore the "boot" partition that was modified by magisk. By doing that, your phone should get back its "official status", allowing OTA. However, Knox will stay tripped. Anyway, Knox does little... and is only used by samsung softwares.
