It's been a while since I've rooted a phone. But I am interested in rooting my ROG Phone 5 in order to use "Network Signal Guru" to force/lock onto particular 4G and 5G bands.

What will I give up if I root my phone? I don't care about Google Pay. I believe the Widevine DRM will downgrade from L1 to L3 which is more relevant to me, but not a dealbreaker. Is there anything else I need to worry about?

Thanks.

You got pretty much everything which will be missed;

Widevine - No Solution so far
Google Pay - Can be handled with Magisk Hide
SafetyNet for Banking apps - Can be handled with Magisk
