Questions about the current SafetyNet situation:
1. Does a bootloader unlock really trip SafetyNet by itself?
2. Do the xiaomi.eu ROMs trip SafetyNet or do they not?
3. Does flashing a custom
3a. boot
3b. system
3c. recovery trip SafetyNet?
4. Does booting a custom system image without flashing it trip SafetyNet?
4a. What if vbmeta is present?

ROMs "without" SafetyNet:
5. Hardware attestation can be downgraded to Basic, right?
5a. Could Google mitigate this?
6. SafetyNet is just an API the running apps can call, right?
6a. If so, could a custom ROM be made that just always lies to all apps about attestation? Or even just a Magisk module?
6b. If so, why hasn't it been done yet?

ROMs with root:
7. Is it true that there are no ROMs that are already rooted out of the box?
7a. Why is that?
8. Are there really no custom ROMs with baked-in Magisk?
8a. Why aren't there any?
If the previous answers were No and No:
9. This might not be an elegant solution, but couldn't the following be done?
9a. Flash a ROM
9b. Flash Magisk
9c. Set up MagiskHide/Zygisk/MagiskHidePropsConfig
9d. Basic testing
9e. Dump resuling image

I understand these question might sound stupid to someone with the experience to answer them.
However, I couldn't find any answers to some of these.
A pre-rooted custom ROM "without" SafetyNet sounds like it would be popular if done.

Except for question 2, this post is about all Android custom ROM development in general, not only xiaomi.eu.
