[HOWTO] Installing Banking Apps

Probably too much of a beginner to ask this, but how i my supposes to patch Magisk ? Should i patch a /e/ img as requested?
I’m already on a phone with /e/ OS installed, and i don’t want to begin everything else just for giving Root. (Even if i can do a simple backup via adb). Isn’t possible to just patch it to one of the /e/ updates ?

Actually that is a good question @PoorPocketsMcNewHold !
@harvey186 maybe you need to add a few steps to the start of the HowTo on how one adds Magisk.

please follow the link to XDA on my howto. There it is described how to flash Magisk

EDIT: Sorry, no description there :frowning: OK. I will add the following to my howto

  1. download latest MagisK .zip and flash it via TWRP (same as you flashing a custom rom)

You can make a complete backup with twrp.

Absolut correct !!! :+1:

Found this on the forum may help

Also found this guide for rooted phones (with pictures)
-: also the page explains how to use it for banking.

Could you explain the need for BusyBox here?

Busy Box is something that you install on your Droid to give you some additional handy LINUX / UNIX based commands. You need Busy Box installed because some commands are not available to you and you made need them for some root level tasks.

I mean, what’s BusyBox role in this particular case?

I’m not sure, but I think the hiding of MqgisK Manager and running only magisk core will need some special linux commands which are only available with BussyBox.

I don’t know if BusyBox turns out to be necessary in action, but at least I’m successfully activating “Сore only mode” and “Magisk hide” without it.

Haven’t checked, but if there is dependence on BusyBox — it should be mentioned in the Magisk’s manual. Also, open-source apps are usually not provided without their dependencies or an explicit statement about them.

If you can get your banking app running without bussybox, be happy. I have learned that bussybox was neccessary for my banking app. And i see no problem to use bussybox. There are some other apps wich needing it, for example titanium backup.

I don’t know what kind of problem you have with bussybox.

But anyway, try with out.

For information, apps of the swiss bank Raiffeisen work without doing anything special (installed normally via Aurora Store).
That includes :

  • Raiffeisen E-Banking
  • Raiffeisen PhotoTAN
  • Raiffeisen TWINT (to pay with the phone)

I also installed the one app (for the credit card). It displays “microG DroidGuard Helper stopped working” every time I lauch the app but the app works witout any problems.

Don’t hate me, but I was so hoping that this would allow Google Pay to work, but no… Oh well…

Why would you want google to track all of your purchases?? Luckily one of my banks offers tap & pay natively in their own app which also worked straight out of the box with /e/

It’s crazy to use google pay on a google free phone.
Google will use all your putchases for profiling, selling and commercials.


Nationwide. (UK) and Smile (UK) both work on /e/ without modifications. I download them using Aurora as not on the /e/ store.


in my case it is not working. Using samsung galaxy s4 mini. I could do every step from the instruction above until the check if Trust Root Access is Disabled. I cannot see the same menu as it is in the screenshot above.
I used the Magisk Beta Version 19.3. so the questions are:

  1. SaftyNetStatus of Magisk is failing (is this necessary ?)

  2. Where do I find “Trust” to ensure that root access is disabled ?

  3. When I try to open the DKB Tan2go app, it closes instant after the proceeding

Maybe you could support me with some help to fix these problems.

Thanks in advance

Hi, at first, I have tried DKB Tan2Go on 2 Xiaomi phones with e-pie. And … it works out of the box, no hacks needed.
Have you tried it complete without magisK installed ? Of not, remove magisK https://magiskroot.net/uninstall-magisk-module-twrp/

Now to your questions:

  1. SaftyNet will ALWAYS fail
  2. Trust you will find under ‘Security@location’
  3. It’s closing and starting web browser, or ? That’s because it has found magisK

And when you are using the DKB app I think you are a German guy, so we could also talk in German :wink:

Hej, what’s e-pie?

Do I guess right ~ android 9 - Pie as a /e/ OS version?

My Samsung Galaxy S4 - “jfltexx” works “only” with e-0.7-n-

Can I also meet you in the german /e/ forum?

I want to try Tan2Go and Consorsbank SecurePlus in the next few days.
