EDIT: Unfortunatelly this is not working any more due to recent SafetyNet updates :(

Hello everyone. This is first guide i'm trying to write here so don't be to harsh for me :) also sorry for my english, it's not my native language.
After almost 3 days of messing with various roms and kernels i finally managed to successfully installl Magisk V6 on my Z3 D6633 (yes, Pokemon Go 0.37 works too :D) .

First of all you need unlocked bootloader. Without it you won't be able to flash custom kernel. Also, if your kernel is still locked, and you want to unlock it remember that doing so will wipe all data from your device, so backup everything that is important to you prior to following this guide.

This is the setup that works for me:

SLiMM 3.1 rom by Wajk:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/z3/development/rom-slimm-t3359907
Advanced stock/beta kernel Marshmallow 6.0.1 - 06/aug/2016 by Gustavo RD78:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/z3/development/kernel-advanced-stock-kernel-t3345880
Magisk v6 - The Universal Systemless Interface by topjohnwu:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/mod-magisk-v1-universal-systemless-t3432382

Here are the steps:
1. flash rom with 6633 patch, reboot
2. full unroot and clean in SuperSU, reboot
3. flash kernel, reboot
4. flash Magisk V6 and PHH root, reboot
5. install PHH root from play store and Magisk Manager

I used SafetyNet Helper to verify if SafetyNet is working several times during all those steps:
after 1 - not working,
after 2 - working,
after 3 - working,
after 4 - not working,
after 5 - not working,
after disabling root in Magisk Manager - working.

Hope it helps someone :)

Hi,

For this tutorial I still need the unlocked bootloader?

Regards!

ask the following I

is a LB or UB requirement ?

If the whole with D6603 ?

Thanks for your tutorial

I haven't try with locked bootloader, because I unlocked mine a while ago, but in the kernel thread there is info that unlocked bootloader is required. It might be possible to do it with other roms, as long as they work with Advanced Stock Kernel from the link in first post. D6603 should work too, only difference is that you don't need dual sim patch for SLiMM 3.1 rom

I must have had a similar problem to you originally, I had a working D6603 with a Rooted Marshmellow 6 Rom.
Then, performed the following Steps;
1. Unroot (Inside the SuperSU App)
2. Booted into TWRP and flashed Magisk - v6
3. Then Flashed phh 's systemless superuser

I rebooted the phone and now it is not working. Does not Boot, Black Screen.
The Led will flash red quickly and I am not able to boot into TWRP.

I can see the Phone is Recognised by the Computer (S1 /SOMC Flash Device in Device Manager.)
Could someone please post step by step instructions to restore a to Marshmellow Rom (Any)?
Will I have to download an Image and a Flashtool?

Resolved using Emma. I installed the S1 SOMC Flash Device Drivers and I was able to download lollypop.
I will attempt now to reinstall recovery, new rom, and Magisk

Guide helped alot thanks!
Important part was to uninstall SuperSU. Before that ROM appeared to reject the kernel or vice versa, but now it boots on Fragment ROM and unmount seems to work!
Better be worth unlocking the BL :p

Just flash stock kernel with flashtool.

Thanks for the tuto.
Of course you need to have Unlocked Bootloader, this is the principle of flashing a custom kernel. And systemless root like magisk needs custom kernel. With LB you will not boost after flashing a custom kernel.

thnx for this workaround. if you follow it to the letter, you should be fine, else it won't work, and you still get "cts profile match: false"
( it cost me 2 attempts because i flashed the kernel directly)

finally there is someone who desire to create specific systemless method with magisk for xperia device line

unfortunately I've tried earlier than this thread exist so I have to clearance to noob xperia user, here's my post

well well I'm here just to give specific classification / explanation about what is this projects do
I'm here to say that this method is about modifying boot partition to make systemless works (correct me if I'm wrong), since my device was Xperia Z3 then this require "unlocked bootloader" for any Xperia device in case to use custom boot.img script from this projects... please please OP underline this before another people from Xperia users with locked bootloader flash this projects, thanks

I'm already tried on myself almost hardbricking my phone and this isn't funny

that's mean xperia device line (no exception) need to be Unlocked Bootloader before flashing magisk otherwise the'll soft brick
hi mr @kotlin can you add this to OP for specific clarification?

Yes I installed Systemless Xposed from magisk thread, it works like a charm, hadn't any problems :) Did you followed all the steps? It's order is very important. You have unlocked bl? I just put info in op that it is necessary. For me toggle root was greyed out when i didn't properly flashed magisk to kernel, or after restoring kernel. Try to make backup and follow the steps again.

I'm coming from Xperia Z... not z3
can't be sure if the problem is coming from different advance stock kernel...

Thanks for sharing the steps...I will try again when I have time...

I finally got it working after several attempts. Everyting went well with unlocking the bootloader and installing the rom.
In magisk manager i got Selinux toggle working for me. I just cant use the root toggle. The toggle is on, and if i want to disable it it says: magisk manager is granted superuser acces. Then it turns the toggle back on. Should i not grant SU acces to the magisk manager or is there another problem?

I've had this working a while and even used Android Pay for the first time. However Viper4Android doesn't seem to be working well and sounds are too quiet do any existing mods still work or would they break SafetyNet?
