Introduction
Hello everyone! Having just now read this XDA article, I decided to try out the flashable zip linked in it. Needless to say, it worked like a charm!

There wasn't any need to clear data for me. Loaded the module, restarted the phone, opened Google Photos and force-closed/killed it, reopened Google Photos and Google Lens was there.

The issue is most definitely at your end since the module has been working fine for me, my testers and all the people who've posted in this thread.

Please make sure that you're using the correct module zip for your Magisk version. If you use the wrong module zip for your Magisk version, it might end up in a bootloop, so.
