Hello @vince31frAs you can see, we prepare the jump to Android 11... Could you explain in details what you need with fbind, what do you exactly do with fbind ? There maybe a solution (selinux rules, ...).
About Root essentials : did you try to remove the blocker protection on it ? Apparently there are ads and trackers in this app, this may be th reason (and the reason why I would not recommend this app btw).
The need to use "fbind" results from two topics:
1.) The small storage of 32GB (just less than 20GB usable as "internal storage), but there are several Apps, which need some GB of space exactly in this internal storage (f.e. TomTom-GO, Signal-Messenger, Threema-Messenger, but — even if I hate it — WhatsApp with several GB of media data), and the internal storage of the XA2 is too small.
2.) LineageOS does not deal cleanly with "adopted storage". It's documented. Nevertheless I tried to establish that instead of using "fbind" with LOS18.1. The adopted storage was there, but every file written there was inaccessible(corrupted?) later.
fbind works cleanly with every LOS until Android10 (even with your actual iodéOS together with magisk).
Without this way of storage enhancement the XA2 is useless to me.
And the dev/author of "fbind" knows about this problem with Google's "isolated storage feature" in Android11 and has no solution yet:

Look here for "TODO.txt".
Thanks a lot,
Fortunately I have a second XA2 for testing such things...
