As you are aware, new Stable releases (including rebuilds that are currently in the works) do not include our fix for passing SafetyNet/Play Integrity checks. There's the guide how to flash Magisk and relevant fix on these ROMs.

NOTE: You have to repeat the process (at least installing Magisk) after EVERY ROM UPDATE!

UPDATE 9.12.2023:
We have implemented our fix in recent ROMs (AFTER 1.12.2023). If you want to use Play Integrity Fix, you must:
- uninstall eu.xiaomi.module.inject updates (if you updated module to newer version than present in ROM),
- disable eu.xiaomi.module.inject app (possible on ROMs released AFTER 7.12.2023).

If you can't do these steps, you will have to use another Magisk module to remove it from system (until an update for your phone, released after 7.12.2023, is available).

If you want to use Magisk with our module (not PIF), add Google Play Services to DenyList as present on the screenshot and enforce it.

The newest Play Integrity Fix automatically removes our APK.


1. Flash the newest available Stable build for your device (released on or after 18 November).
2. Prepare relevant files: Magisk (download APK), Play Integrity Fix and relevant file from the ROM package.
- If ROM package contains init_boot.img, then extract it (and ONLY it).
- If it doesn't, extract boot.img (and ONLY it).

Move them to device storage.

3. Install Magisk APK on device. After install run it and choose "Install" near Magisk name. Choose "Select and Patch a File", then find a relevant IMG file (boot.img or init_boot.img) you've moved to storage before. Then "Let's go".

Move generated image to the PC. Run device in Fastboot mode. If you've unpacked ROM on PC, you can use it to flash an image (if not, use platform-tools); go to the ROM directory > bin > your host OS dir. Paste image there (the best solution present on the screenshot), then right-click anywhere on the directory > run Terminal (if option doesn't show, use Ctrl+Shift+RMB - for Windows lower than 11).

Connect device to PC if you didn't already. Run following commands (.\ on screenshot is for PowerShell):
fastboot devices

Depending on your device:
fastboot flash init_boot_ab magisk_generated_name.img

OR

fastboot flash boot_ab magisk_generated_name.img

OR (on older devices)
fastboot flash boot magisk_generated_name.img

Then
fastboot reboot

Phone will reboot.

4. You should be able to see new Magisk app on Home screen. If it will ask for an install the full APK, then accept the prompt and install it. Magisk may also ask later for additional configuration, like on this screen:
Screenshot_2023-11-18-16-48-09-479_com.topjohnwu.magisk.jpg
Accept it. Device will reboot.
In some cases (like mine), app will say that you have to reinstall Magisk. Do it, choosing "Direct installation" and accept the prompt. Reboot device after installation.

5. Play Integrity Fix requires enabled Zygisk. Tap the gear button, then select "Zygisk". You can also enable "Enforce DenyList" - it will be useful for hiding apps that are detecting root from Magisk. Reboot device to apply changes.

6. Now it's time to install Play Integrity Fix. Run Magisk, select Modules > Install from storage and choose a ZIP with a fix. After successful install, reboot a device.

7. SafetyNet and Play Integrity should be passing just fine (until next Google fix; then you will have to wait for a fix update).

8. Clear app data: Google Wallet, Google Play Services, Google Play Store and Google Services Framework.
9. Reboot device. You should be able to add cards successfully.
Screenshot_2023-11-18-19-11-43-322_com.google.android.gms.jpg

If you aren't able to download specific apps from Play Store (e.g. Netflix) after flashing a fix, clear Play Store and Google Play Services data.

HOW TO HIDE SOME APPS FROM MAGISK

In my case, McDonald's or Google Wallet app is working just fine after flashing a fix, without having to hide the app in Magisk. But, in some cases, it may be not enough. How to do it then? We (I hope) activated DenyList while preparing to flash Play Integrity Fix, so let's use it!

1. Go to Magisk > gear icon > Configure DenyList.
2. There will be a list of apps on phone. Choose app that complains about root permissions.
Screenshot_2023-11-18-18-21-46-067_com.topjohnwu.magisk.jpg
3. If your bank app still doesn't work due to detecting ROOT, go back to settings and select "Hide the Magisk app". It will generate the same Magisk app, but with new package name, so it won't be so easily detected by apps. Allow Magisk to install apps, then choose your name and accept. It was enough in my case, app started to work (although it doesn't allow to send a screenshot, so you must trust me in this case) :)

That`s will be a wilde ride for many users!
Thanks for your hard work and great Custom ROM.

Cheers,
It will certainly be!
I´m already testing it.

Poco F3 (alioth) updated with latest MIUI 14 Stable REBUILD without Play Integrity fix.
Already rooted and flashed with Play Integrity Fix by @chiteroman version 13 and 13.1
I CONFIRM that Play Integrity Certification, SafeNet Certification, Google Play Store Certification, Google Wallet (NFC Payments) and Bank apps are working flawlessly. (attached)
The whole system seems also faster them before. Awesome work!
Thanks @Igor Eisberg , @Kacper Skrzypek , @ingbrzy and all EU Team for your commitment to provide a great Custom MIUI for us.

Best regards,

Only the apps that actively check for root. Mostly banking apps, some games (PoGo, PUBG, etc), Uber, McDonalds, etc.
Don't go on an adding spree. If you launch an app and see a warning, only then try to hide it.
Thanks, corrected.

OK, I'm sorry, but I didn't understand that at all. I meant if I root the smartphone, is the Second Space (second profile) automatically rooted too or not?

If you are flashing via Fastboot, you will also need the following file from the ROM package. If ROM package contains init_boot.img, then unpack it (and ONLY it). If it doesn't, unpack boot.img (and ONLY it).
Move it to device storage.

Flashing Magisk method will differ, depending on whether you are using Fastboot or Recovery.
3. [TWRP] Boot device to TWRP and install the downloaded Magisk APK (recovery should be able to detect it despite it's a *.apk file - if not, change the extension to .zip). Reboot to system.

Are the reuploads done for today? I was waiting for the HMNote10 but I can see now the last upload was 6 hours ago and the HMNote10 is not uploaded. Will I have to switch to Weekly for my Redmi Note 10 Pro instead or are more reuploads coming?
 
Hi, I am new in the forum, this is my first post.

I've carefully followed the guide on this post, step by step, but the result I got is completely different, and sadly unsuccessful. I did it over my POCO X3 NFC (surya) running a xiaomi.eu 14.0.2.0.SJGMIXM custom 'rebuild' rom, just installed a couple of hours ago (so I guess it is valid for this process). Results:

- Safety.Net: Response payload validation failed (before Magisk + Play Integrity fix, I got a SUCCESS in the whole Test)
- Play Integrity Checker: the 3 integrity checking fail, DEVICE | BASIC | STRONG (before Magisk + Play Integrity fix, I got a SUCCESS in BASIC, and failure in others two).

I installed Magisk v26.4 and PlayIntegrityFix_v13 directly from the links on the tutorial. I did not get any error when installing them.

Can anyone here help me on what to do/check next?

Note: Spanish banking apps I use work fine, no need to hide

Try clearing the cache for GSF, Play Services, Play Store and rebooting afterwards.
 
Xiaomi Ultra 13 - Clean install of 19/11 ROM and Magisk / Play Integrity Fix.

Failed :( followed instructions above, and tried all the suggestions.

Thanks for the advice. But we would like to know if magisk 26.4 is required or magisk delta can do the trick as well.
As the original magisk can't block the banking app and it is still being detected rooted with some banking apps, but delta can hide it.

Regarding the OP instruction, does it mean I need to remove the TWRP from the system or leave it there and then follow the rest of steps?

By the way, the Play integrity fix v13 module may affect some gaming app, like pikamin bloom (It will stuck on the loading page), so I am wondering if I can also add the unsf mod version (Universal Safety Net v 2.4.0-mod 2.0) on the rebuild stable rom.
