If I remember correctly, you have to fill a template when reporting. And you have to confirm there that you use the latest Debug version.Hi,
Don't know if this is the right place ... anyways ...
Hi, Safetynet : Pass, yet Banking apps detect root and fail Is this how its going to be our is there something I can do and have these banking apps up and working ?github.com
Firstly I don't have a clue why my github issue got closed by a bot.
Without all those formalities, the bot will immediately close your issue
But even if you pass the bot, your 'issue' will be sooner or later closed by developers because it's not their business if some banking app detects 'root'
Who knows how does it detect. Maybe by looking for Magisk Application (configuration of DenyList has nothing to do with that)
Maybe the app guesses about 'root' by finding TWRP folder. Maybe the app recognizes that Bootloader is unlocked (like Momo app can find on some phones) and it guesses why would somebody unlock BL if not for rooting or installing a custom ROM
It's not about detecting the 'root' but detecting that you are not running the 'safe' (read the CERTIFIED) stock firmware
And TJW has clearly departed himself and his Magisk v24+ from those detections of 'root'. New DenyList is something totally different than previous MagiskHide. Even if somebody does not understand the differences in techniques, he should see a significant difference in their NAMES
I only don't understand why TJW still keeps Hide (repackage) Magisk App option. If he really wanted to be straight about differentiating from hiding the 'root', he should have removed that option - that option (putting aside that it can be circumvented by smarter 'banking' apps) has no other purpose than to hide Magisk app from the 'banking' apps who try to look for the Magisk ('service', 'mask', whatever you call) by looking instead for (an easier task) the Magisk app. Hence TJW still stands here on the 'wrong' side, but apparently his employer does not care much (meanwhile trying to impose that apps soon will no more be able to search for the installed apps, hence hiding the Magisk app would become irrelevant)
Ie, detecting and hiding root is a game. And AFAIK, Magisk GitHub does not accept reporting any 'issues' about
Just checked, the template/instructions when reporting an Issue (Magisk GitHub) clearly say (among others):
- **DO NOT** open issues regarding root detection.
- Without following the rules above, your issue will be closed without explanation.
