Yes works fine for me
Yes works fine for me
Actually thinking about it, I am able to login to my banking app but I'm unable to add new payee and a couple of other features, it says to wait 4 days after the app has been installed but its been longer than that, I reckon it could be the safety net check. Thank you
Just install Magisk and you're done.
I was referring to this: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...safetynet-prop-edits-and-more-v5-4-0.3789228/
I read somewhere that the current stable Magisk has some trouble with the safety net attestation check. You need to update to the latest canary build if you want to see it passed.
No, I won't do that because Magisk is unsupported. I prefer to see people asking questions here in the thread than complaining about something not working after following instructions. Besides, people using custom ROMs are surely aware of Magisk by now.
Please try again with Mindthegapps, those are the officially supported ones.
Thanks for the info man!!!!!
Thanks again! Following my previous message, I "jumped in the cold water" and wiped everything and reinstalled the latest LOS. So far it works (although you always find out that some less important data hasn’t been backed up properly, that’s life).The migration script introduces vulnerabilities, and you would need to create a migration build with your own keys (LOS don't build migration builds any more).
Technically you can copy the folders in /data, that's what most root backup apps do, but this won't replicate permissions or symlinks. Your best choice would be Titanium Backup, or Migrater like you've linked, 3C Toolbox is handy too.
Vendor is included with the official LOS ROM, so you won't need to flash this separately (still need to flash firmware).
Update TWRP to the latest version on twrp.me. Remove the screenlock first, then make a backup of everything except system and vendor (use the system image and vendor image option instead). Store that backup somewhere safe. Make a full backup of your internal storage as this will also be wiped with a factory reset.
You'll need to factory reset and wipe dalvik-cache, cache, system and data partitions after. Then you can install LOS, Gapps and Magisk.
I don't use OTA updates myself, but I don't think you need to disable the screenlock any more as 18.1 uses FBE, not FDE, the system partition is accessible even without unlocking. If you have LOS recovery, OTA updates work automatically. If you use TWRP, you might need to flash them manually.
I'm happy to report that everything went smoothly and the swap from MindTheGapps to OpenGapps has completed without any problems. All my apps that rely on Google Services Framework got hooked automatically to the new package and it was NOT necessary to reset any ID or reinstall any app to get push notifications.
