Thank you, this helped me, as well.

But I needed to do some poking around to find where those files live.

Maybe this helps someone


Bash:
# in termux or another terminal app

su
cd /data/app

# Find comdirect app dir (on my phone these are kind of hidden in weird ~~48r9845...~~ folders)
cd "$(find . -name "*comdirect*")"

cd oat/arm64

rm -rf base.*

Easier to find with 3c

Magisk canary
Magisk hide
Riru + riru unshare

These steps work for me on the photoTAN app, but not the banking app. The newest version always crashes after login. I had to install older version to keep using it

I tried also using lsposed + xprivacylua but the banking app still crashes.

Enjoy the time we have, magisk hide is no longer being developed.
Well it also says that Magisk will get support to directly use Zygote which would basically mean that the functionality of the riru core module is already implemented by default. Hopefully someone fork the Magisk Hide module and keeps on supporting it but of course it is a setback that Topjohnwu can't support it anymore directly.

fyi: I just used riru unshare with the latest photoTan app version 8.3.2 and it seem to be working (at least it is starting now without the error about root detection)

The link is working, just checked it. You need to scroll down to get to the history in order to find an older version like the 8.2.1
Thank u.

Got the link, correct.

But after clicking "download" browser goes to
and does nothing.
No download.

Edit:
Checked with 2 browsers.
"Processing..."
And nothing.

So with 8.2.0 and so on.

Thanks to Asellus.
Link works.

After installing, error with "rooted phone" stays the same.
I thought the new root detection came with versions after 8.1.2?

Using magisk and magisk hide.

For me version 8.2.1 works with Magisk Hide. Perhaps it helps to kill the app and clean its data and cache. And to check that both services of the app are hidden in Magisk

Hey fellas I got it working and others apps detect magisk before.

Update to latest v23
Install modules riru and riru unshare
Remove data from tan app
Go to magisk hide and tick all process to hide included the isolated
Start the tan app and do the activation again.

Problem you need wait 2 days to activate because comdirect use new activation process for photo tan app.

Working fine all version 8.3
This worked for me now with 8.2.1.
Did unhide and hide.
clear data.
New regsitration with activation letter.

Thanks very much all.

Worked for me [Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, A11, comdirect 8.3.2, riru core + unshare] ... no cache or data delete necessary.
Thanks a lot!

    This works like charm. Just did it today
    Thank you so much been struggling for ages with that ****
    1. I deleted all data for photo tan app and prevented it from gaining any permissions (especiallo I disabled the permission to find what other apps are installed)
    2. I activated magisk hide for photo tan
    3. I installed "riru" from magis modules search from within the magisk app
    4. I googled for "riru unshare", downloaded the zip from github and installed it with magisk installer app (modules "install as zip"
    5. reboot
    6. open photo tan and it works (have to do a new activation though)

    noted: I did not have to do any further configuration of the modules

    @pa.pn2 probably a bit out of topic here, but I found several information that you will need to wipe when updating from A11 to A12 and keeping root so you are trying to re-setup now and application does not start?
    I dirty flashed android 12 yes.
    Maybe i will do a clean flash and we will see what happens.
    I also have problems with YouTube music. It doesn't play my music files somehow lol

    Since version 8.3.0 additional measures to detect root have been added, do not update as MagiskHide won't be able to prevent detection. Until a solution is found I would recommend staying on the previous version for as long as possible.

    Finding out what exactly is causing the root detection is beyond my technical abilities but I would provide as much information needed to those willing to help.

    The solution found by @pxrave appears to be working:

    Riru
    Riru unshare
    Riru lsposed
    Xprivacilua 1.30

    Just went through this process. For me it was sufficiant to update to magisk v23, rename magisk, install riru and riru unshare, hide all processes of phototan app in magisk hide and *clear cache* only for phototan app. This way I did not have to re-activate the phototan app (nor to wait 2 days) again.

    I have too devices.
    a note 9 with android 10 and a note 20 ultra 5g Android 11.
    Note 9 phototan app working.
    Note 20 phototan app dont working, same setting, inntresting.


    I know, the innstall on my note 9 was not correct, installed the apk again over it and the same message comes up that it is not allowed, downgrade ok and wait is now announced.


    edit:
    Now fry me a stork, I have downgraded the phototan app on my note9, now it works without problems on my Note 20.
    I don't understand what's going on.

    Please take a look at yourself to see if the phototan app, all options in magisk hidden, are activated?


    Now fry me a stork? 🤣 English for runaways, I break together and also my english is not the yellow from the egg 😂😂😂
    I didn't say something of the horse if I say you're a german like me🤣
