Full documentation on the Titan Security Module is not yet available, but a few Google engineers have posted Tweets that give us some information. First, in response to a tweet by Dees_Troy, lead developer of TWRP, Google’s tech lead for Android hardware-backed security subsystems, Shawn Willden, states that the new security module will not be used for runtime system analysis. This is important for Magisk users because hardware-backed runtime system analysis would make systemless-root much more difficult. However, Google already opened up an API for the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), so runtime system analysis could still happen in the future (in other words, there could still be bad news for Magisk.)
The question is how long will Magisk continue to work. According to an XDA:
I tried to patch the boot.img through the magisk app and then flash that through fastboot. Flashed successfully but would not boot.
I have noticed that as soon as I unlocked the bootloader I fail safety net. Has that always been the case even without any system modifications?
