Hello together,

if you start e.g. your banking app and you run into problems like "cant start, your devices may be rooted"

Be sure the device is certified and safetynet is ok

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Here is the solution if you have installed magisk v23 or smaller
# delete the folder "/twrp" if this exists

# open "magisk - settings - Hide the Magisk app" and type a new name eg "magic"
# create a shortcut if you want on your homescreen
# open "magisk - MagiskHide (the shield icon) - choose "your banking app"
# open "magisk - MagiskHide (the shield icon) - choose "Google Play services"


Proceed to the next steps if the problem still exists

# download "AirFrozen" from Google Play Store
# open "Airfrozen - Start the journey - select renamed magisk -> eg "magic"


Now you have two options to freeze magisk

# tap longer on the the icon eg "magic" and a menu will appear - choose freeze (eg "magic" title will be green)
# tap on the green frozen icon in the lower right corner (eg "magic" title will be
green)

# clear cache and data of your banking app
# start your banking app - all should be fine


To stop the frozen mode of magisk

# open "Airfrozen - tap longer on the the icon eg "magic" and a menu will appear - choose "Thaw" (eg "magic" title will be red)

Before magisk is frozen

PS: in the play store is another app to freeze Apps "Ice Box"

one user told us if he disabled "OEM locking" or "Developer options" everything was fine
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Another solution should be to install the alpha version of magisk (thx to @darkbloodshot)

# enable the e.g. banking app on the denylist

Here are some download links for the alpha release of magisk
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Have a nice weekend ... regards Kater

Thanks a lot for your expertise.
I understand now we are forced to be Android patch expert just in order to consult our bank account.

just hide it with magisk, i also use sparkasse and for some reason it causes no problems, probably because of Orangefox twrp

don´t work at me...exactly 1 time the app open and works, but then it don´t work again...i use magisk v23, magiskhide is active for the banking app, i have hidden the magisk app with another name, freeze magisk with airfreezer, delete cache and data of banking app and cache/dalvik cache in TWRP but it don´t work...maybe it´s fixed now?

edit: where can i found the twrp folder? maybe this is the problem...but it has worked for exactly one time?!

edit2: i have now install the magisk alpha release and activate the app on the denylist, now it works perfect. thank you!

thank you very much @katerpanne you saved my day!
I was struggling trying to use my Terra Station Wallet on #android and your workaround just fixed it in a few steps!
