Hi all
I using latest magisk 2.1.400 just because i want to run banking app ( have to hide the magisk with magisk hide)
But since i use LOS 17 on my ether (nexbit) my phone got unlock issue, there is error when i got to unlock with patern, system ui crash and i have to do draw pattern over and over until my phone is unlock
I have uninstall the magisk, but weird the problem still persist
Clean install the room may help to run unlock pattern but i can run banking app
Any solutions for this
Thanks

Lenovo tb-x606f. Magical 21.4 loaded via twrp. Canary magisk manager.

magisk manager says needs to be updated. Try to do a direct update to boot image and fails due to read-only filesystem. Patch and flash zip via fastboot works.

any ideas?

Release Notes up:

Magisk
2020.2.23 Magisk v22.0
RESTORE THE EXISTING MAGISK MANAGER BACK TO NORMAL BEFORE UPGRADING IF HIDDEN!
Another major Magisk release! This time our focus is not the core Magisk implementation, but rather on improving the whole Magisk user experience.

Magisk Manager is dead.
Long live the Magisk app!

Ever since the first Magisk release, Magisk (the core components) and Magisk Manager (the companion app) are released separately and isn’t necessarily always in sync. This leads to some confusion and a lot of complexity when downloading/installing Magisk through the app. Starting from v22.0, the Magisk app (renamed from Magisk Manager) includes everything it needs within the APK itself, making installation a 100% offline process.

Custom recovery lovers, no worries! The Magisk app APK itself is a custom recovery flashable zip, just like MAGIC™🌈. Check out the updated installation guide for more info.

App Hiding
Another major breakthrough in this release is that devices lower than Android 9.0 can now also use the advanced app hiding technique to hide the Magisk app. Due to this incompatible change, RESTORE THE EXISTING MAGISK MANAGER BACK TO NORMAL BEFORE UPGRADING IF HIDDEN!

Bug Fixes
  • [MagiskHide] Fix a bug when stopping MagiskHide does not take effect
  • [MagiskBoot] Fix bug when unpacking lz4_lg compressed boot images
  • [MagiskInit] Support Galaxy S21 series
  • [MagiskSU] Fix incorrect APEX paths that caused libsqlite.so fail to load

[ ... etc. ... ]
I very much appreicate and am sincerely grateful to John Wu for his work on this, which helps so many people.

Sadly, I will not be upgrading to this version, because it no longer supports the A/B OTA Retention Script. That module makes OS upgrades very simple on A/B devices such as mine, and I want to avoid the more complicated and therefore more error-prone method that I would now have to utilize in order to upgrade my OS under this new Magisk version.

Some day I might give in, but for the time being, I'm sticking with 21.4.

Hey guys,
I'm using OnePlus 3 with custom ROM(bootloader unlocked) after the new update.
Whenever I update through app and select the proper steps, the devices reboot to recovery, but mine doesn't it goes to bootloader instead.
After reading the guide what I came to conclusion is to have to patch my recovery img now, but I'm a little confused about how do I use custom recovery mode? And how do I update magisk now on?

Device- OnePlus 3
ramdisk - no
SAR- yes
SaftyNet Pass

Still clearly some issues to iron out.

I just tried direct update on Xiaomi RN8T (Magisk in boot.img despite ramdisk = no).

When clicking Lets Go, nothing seemed to be happening, and I eventually closed Magisk and rebooted, and next get 'the system has been destroyed' screen.

Simple matter to flash an earlier Magisk-patched image and up running again w/ root.

Next, tried patching a boot.img, and similarly, when clicking Lets Go, nothing seems to happen.

Gone back to 21410 for now, and all is working fine again. PW

Automatic (recommended) update is fail.
It say OK but after reboot Magisk is not installed.
I rebooted to Recovery and installed Magisk.zip.
It's fine.
Ramdisk Yes, A/B No, SAR Yes, SafetyNet Pass

same and if you flash again, untick the recovery mode, and magisk doesn't update but you get your custom recovery back
No I meant I still can reboot to twrp, but when I try to boot my system the "normal way", it just go to the download mode instead.
Same happen when I reboot to system from twrp reboot menu.

Weird that the recommended method (which the author stated that works 100% of the time) does not work at all, while the flash in recovery method, which is not recommended, seems to be working OK.

When posting such statements you have to precisely describe your model, firmware, error you have, etc

E.g., I'm updating Magisk by patching and flashing Magisk for two or three years (not on a single device) and it works.
It also works for many, many others here.
Hence it is not generally true that patching method does not work at all.

Make sure that you choose right img to patch, that you check in or not Recovery option (see Magisk docs) and that you properly flash the patched img

I saw something similar. The "Let's go" button didn't seem to do anything, but while trying to save a log I realised that there were several flashing instances running in the background. Completely destroyed my boot image... Had to restore it and flash in TWRP to get up and running again.

I think I managed to get a log of the issue and have given it to John, but could you grab one as well, just in case?

Same thing happened to me. My phone keeps booting into download/fastboot mode or if I do the button-dance i get into TWRP.

How can I find the backedup boot.img from magisk?
