Hide My AppList Mini Guide
(provisional, subject to correction, and because we see people refer to guides for using it every other week):
1) Install Lsposed - Zygisk if using stock/mainstream Magisk (or for Riru based Magisk) from here:
LSPosed Framework. Contribute to LSPosed/LSPosed development by creating an account on GitHub.
3) Install Hide My AppList (Often referred to in shorthand as HMA) from here
Note: Do NOT
An Xposed module to intercept applist detections. Contribute to Dr-TSNG/Hide-My-Applist development by creating an account on GitHub.
use the downloader in Lsposed Manager to download it, currently
thats the last v2 official, you want the v3 beta
4) Activate HMA in Lsposed Manager:
either by :
a) The notification prompt upon HMA install (easiest), and then tap and select and then toggle to enable the module
b) Tap Lsposed shortcut (on second desktop for me at least) to open Lsposed Manager, navigate if needed to second tab (plugins tab) then tap and select HMA and then toggle to enable the module
6) Launch HMA
Either by its own Hide My Applist icon in your launcher
Tap Lsposed shortcut (on second desktop for me at least) to open Lsposed Manager, navigate if needed to second tab (plugins tab) then tap and select HMA and then click the floating blue settings (gear) icon
7) Tap the Template Manage
option in the Manage
8) Tap Create A Blacklist Template
into Template Name
10) Tap Edit List
to the right of 0 Apps Visible
11) From the list of apps select:
* Your renamed (hidden) Magisk Managers name (for ease of use when i rename (hide) Magisk Manager, i always call mine App - so its right towards the top of the app list...
* Hide My Applist
* Any other Lsposed modules you have, for me thats (and sadly, i feel i have to say this but dont clone my setup because some are device (Samsung) specific)):
Classic Power Menu
OneUI General X (S)
12) Click back when done
13) Click back again to main screen with Manage
This is where it gets easy and starts to make sense
14) Click App Manage
For each app you want to hide all the items on the Root template from, tap the app, then:
a) Tap Enable
to toggle it on
b) Under Template Config
, tap Using 0 Template
and choose Root
and tap OK
When you have selected all you wish, use Back to return to desktop
16) Test for app detection, either using the Detection Test
option under HMA's main menu, or
A library to detect suspicious apps like Magisk. Contribute to Dr-TSNG/ApplistDetector development by creating an account on GitHub.
Or if you want to descend into new depths of paranoia and overexamining and worrying about things to levels the average Momo user could only dream of:
An android sample app of detecting suspicious apps like magisk manager - byxiaorun/Ruru
Backup and Restore functions are available via the gear icon in HMA as well so you dont have to create a root template and tick all those apps again on a new installation, with the exception of one package....
At restore time you will need to add your renamed (hidden) Magisk Managers name back to the Root blacklist template and reboot
, since you got me into the whole HMA thing, can you double check my work, please, see if ive explained it correctly, or made any obvious boo boos/ponkles?
