Hey guys. I have been trying out various nougat ROMS using twrp 3.2.3.

Lineage 14.1 is giving me an issue - it has root enabled by default. How can I unroot?

I first tried flashing addonsu remove file from Lineage. Didn't work.

When I use the AOKP nougat and I'm able to use supersu to remove root. But the same is not working on LOS14.1

I need to get rid of root to use banking apps. Please help!

It worked!!

I guess i looked at ways of removing root. Magisk is an app that gives root AFAIK. Never thought about hiding apps from root. Thanks Hrutvik!

For those who run into this issue, I did the following
1. Magisk - Download from official site and flash using recovery (I used the TWRP and installed the zip)
2. Magisk manager - download APK and install after reboot. Open the app and you will find Magisk Hide in the menu. Just select the apps you want to hide!

I've noticed some strange behaviour on LOS 14.1 - using the latest unofficial build

Case 1: clean flash LOS + gapps mini (latest)
G pay and my banking app doesn't work. Magisk hide makes my banking app work.

Case 2: clean flash LOS + gapps STOCK (latest)
G pay is inbuilt but it's an old version. I install the newest version of G pay and I get a second app in my app draw. The latest version works fine. My bank app says my phone is rooted and doesn't open. Magisk hide make my bank app work

In the second case, g pay works since I flashed gapps STOCK instead of mini. How does this happen?

How to stay up to date?

For Shreps's latest build is from Feb 2018 and harry8242’s from June 2018, I wonder how others handle the problem of no security updates on a regular basis?
I've tried to build my own from code but I failed and reinstalled Shreps's latest build, which works absolutely fine on my device and for my purposes.
I'm only concerned a bit about not getting security updates.

If millions of people with crappy Sammy phones can live with outdated systems, then sure we can live a bunch of months without security patches. Plus it's not like every security fix is even related to our device, like Spectre and Meltdown which don't do on a cortex a53.

    Hi guys,

    You will eventually get a new version of CM14, but before that let me remind you of a few things. This post is not only related to CM14 but more about the K5 in general and it is also true for other devices
    • @Shreps and I are doing this for fun
    • We have a life could be a wife, and childrens, but this isn't your concern
    • We have a work or it could be school
    • We pay with our own money for the build server, but we don't ask you money in return (Hopefully otherwise the server would already been closed a long long time ago), we just expect that you respect us, and our work.
    • We actually don't owe you anything, we are pleased that you are able to use the phone and like what we do with it.

    Now regarding what you should understand and do

    • Do not ask for ETA, it will come when we have time
    • Each time you have an issue say which version of the phone you have (A6020a46 for example) and which version of the ROM (I mean the release date) you are running. I know it's hard for most of you to do that, but please please. And please do this each time you find an issue, we don't keep track of who as which version. I'd like to know you all that well but this won't be possible right now.
    • Be clear and tell use how to reproduce the issue. Unless it's an obvious bug.
    • Provide logcat and dmesg right after running into the problem. if you can't please do previous point

    That said, you are all welcome to contribute, or build your own version and help us to.
    I'll be off for a week, so don't expect a new version until next week
