Since the introduction of Google's SafetyNet feature, there has been a constant battle with apps trying to detect root access. For a while, there was a lot of back and forth between Magisk and certain apps. Pokémon GO was a high profile example of an app that aggressively searches for anything related to root. Fortunately, Magisk has made great efforts to prevent apps from recognizing root forever.
In the case of Pokémon GO, the developers of the game would even go so far as quietly scanning their internal memory for the Magisk folder or its associated files platform itself. It was a fairly daring move and very intrusive since it was executed in the background without the consent of the user. At that time, all Magisk files and folders had to be deleted in order to be played during rooting.
Pretty chaotic, if you ask me, but these times are long gone, thanks to the new advances in Magisk, which could be avoided detection altogether. It's nearly bulletproof as the platform has adopted the random package name and the Magisk Hide features. If you combine these two features, even stubborn games like Pokémon GO and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite can be played while you're rooted.
: Random Package Name
The first thing you need to do to find one It is not a problem to randomize the package name of the Magisk Manager app yourself. The package name is a unique identifier for each installed app, similar to the MAC address or IMEI on your phone. If you omit the original package name for something completely random, the affected apps and games will not know what to look for.
Open the Magisk Manager app, tap the menu icon on the left, and go to Settings. Find the Hide Magisk Manager option and tap it once to begin randomizing your package name. It will make the necessary changes in the background very quickly, close the app, and then reopen it with a random new package name. Brilliant!
In addition to changing the package name to an unrecognizable name, the name of the app is changed from "Magisk Manager" to "Manager". The Magisk keyword is removed to override the app's name-to-name mapping, further improving the ability to hide root access. Be sure to always use this feature in the future.
You Now Have the First Half of the Required Changes To make it work, it's on the time to use the Magisk Hide feature to further supplement your new random package name, which is the other part needed to make all apps and games work well with your root access.
Banking apps block root users, so you should be aware of this. To get started, open the newly-named "Manager" app as before on the main screen, tap the menu on the left, and then go to E entry "Magisk Hide" in the list. Find the app (s) that recognize your root access and tap the dot to highlight it. That was & # 39; s!
Some apps have only one entry in the Magisk Hide list, while others may have more than one, for example: B. Pokémon GO. Tapping the down-arrow icon will expand the rest of the entries for that particular app. By default, you should enable all when you tap the first point. However, it's always good to make sure the checkbox is cleared when you scroll through the list of flawed apps.
Step 3: Enjoy Your Apps and Games  From here you can immerse yourself in the apps and games you thought you would never use as root users. If you use Magisk Hide, you do not have to worry about rebooting. Occasionally, however, you may try to use an app with root access if it is not already working.
The apps and games listed below are just a few good examples. You may now fully use root detection. There are many more examples that try to block root users, but with the power of Magisk at your disposal, you should have little or no problems. There is always a chance for new root detection methods, but at the moment everything is fine.
With the new Trials of Magisk for Android 10 "Q" There are some really cool new developments that can hide your root status even further. So stay tuned for more news on this topic.
