There were similar discussions in the Magisk General Thread. For that cases, it turned out that hiding Magisk app (it does not need to be repackaged/renamed/"hidden' from the Magisk app itself) worked out by using Hide My Apps:Yes I appreciate that. I guess my question was if it is correct that after reboot USNF deselects the gms and gms.unstable
Thanks for the explanation.
FYI found what was triggering the app and got it working. Before I had just renamed Magisk (I renamed to MagicApp if that matters) but that didn't work. Also "pausing" the app wasn't enough.
I needed to actually uninstall the Magisk Manager app itself.
So the mechanism being used by the other app wasn't looking for Magisk/SU, but the app iself.
The App failing doesn't have any local file permissions so must've been something else.
Actually I found two apps failing root check and both were resolved by uninstalling the (renamed) Magisk APK.
So I wondered if the app was simply listening to debug messages.
So I reinstalled and then reproduced the failure looking into ADB logcat.
I could see during opening and just before the protection was triggered logcat events against the ".Magisk" app related to denying access. Uninstalling Magisk app stopped those messages and then the app was able to start.
Should Magisk "hiding" the magisk manager app by renaming it from ".Magisk" also have relabelled all of the messages and such related to the app?
- you need Zygisk LSPosed (Magisk module)
- then Hide My Apps (LSPosed module)
And then you need to configure in HMA - not easy and short to explain
And hiding by HMA really works also for other purposes like detaching YouTube from Playstore (bcs root Vanced YT requires specific old YT version that must never be updated) and similarly for detaching AndroidAuto (Google allows only navigation and various messages - and only through voice control; if you want to write mails or watch YT or Netflix on the car entertainment screen even when you park the car, you need particular old AA version, because only then custom apps for AA like CarTube, Fermata, Screen2Auto, AAMirror can work - otherwise AA block them).
And (only) HMA turned so far to be reliable option for A12, for properly detaching AA from PlayStore, for the purpose as above
