Hello everyone,

So my banking app instapay is a harsh one when it comes to root, I've tried everything to hide it but failed. I have magisk 24.3, zygisk and lsposed installed. Stock may update pixel 6

I have tried to enforce deny list and normal, also installed a bunch of hiding tools like Enhance mode for HideMyApplist, Shamiko , Universal SafetyNet Fix, xprivcylua and all failed.

I would appreciate your help the app would crash on first start. Im also okay with any virtual space solution that would work as well i tried island with work profile and parallel space both failed too

Not sure if anyone here is going to have a solution, especially where you have tried all the standard solutions. You may simply have to deal with not using the app on your device.

The only thing I can suggest is getting rid of your Xposed clone. The app I believe is almost certainly detecting it.

Similar situation for me recently with Citibank, I have only Universal SafetyNet Fix and MagiskHide Props Config installed as modules, nothing else.
Magisk 24.3 was hidden, Citibank worked until May 14. This day it suddenly detected Magisk and told me me right out your mobile is rooted with Magisk or any other app.
I added a second user, installed Citibank for the second user and it worked. (seems it doesn't care that the bootloader is unlocked).
Then, I tried the following as Main user::
1. deleted Data and Cache from Citibank
2. Unhide Magisk, Hide it again but this time a new name (not the standard suggestion "Settings")
3. Opened Citibank again, logged in and it worked.
4. Deleted the second user again (optional)
Why? Can't give a specific reason, but a possibility is, that 2 x Settings in the AppDrawer was flagged as suspicious.
So you could try to have a second profile on your mobile or try the steps above.

Cheers
Tom

If you are using adaway to block ads via root, run the DNS log to see what urls the app is trying to connect to.

I had this issue with a UK Halifax banking app, all was working fine until middle of May, and then i found a new URL the app was connecting to, when i blocked it, it worked OK,

Instapay detects zygisk
Only way around is Magisk Alpha with magisk hide activated (It's on Telegram)
Riru, Riru Universal Safetynet fix and Riru xposed (if needed).
Configure the deny list as per screenshot.
Reboot and you're good to go Screenshot_20220526-085914.png

This is what they use : any ideas?

public static boolean isRooted(Context context) {
String str = Build.TAGS;
if ((!isEmulator && str != null && str.contains("test-keys")) || new File("/system/app/Superuser.apk").exists()) {
return true;
}
return !isEmulator && new File("/system/xbin/su").exists();
}

}
This is common check most apps will have it.

i tried the app. i belive its Egpt instapay. i was able to run it without error but cant see the login page.

One thing I noticed whenever I updated the Citibank app is that it always turns off something in DenyList that was previously turned on, causing it to catch root. All I do now is whenever I updated the Citibank app, I check DenyList to make sure none of the Citibank files have been turned off. If so, I just turn it back on and all is good.
