I have a Samsung S8 on which I installed e over a year ago (following what was said on the e website except for booting into recovery the first time, I did that with odin because the buttons’ thing never worked out). Everything works fine and I gave up on the idea of having my bank app (Crédit Agricole’s Ma Banque) installed on it since I didn’t want to go through with installing magisk (“that is not supported anymore but still works great”).
When I first heard about e 1.0 and SafetyNet I thought “great! That will solve all my problems the easy and secure way!” but my phone was not allowed to update at first.
Today, I finally received a notification according to which I could update to e 1.5 (1.5-rc-20221015226441) which I immediately did. The update went great and I started playing around with the new features (I love the Advanced Privacy thing btw).
I activated Google SafetyNet, tested the certification which my device passed and installed the Ma Banque app (from Aurora in case that matters, because the AppLounge agrees to download but then doesn’t want to install any app (yes, I erased the cache and data)). But the app still gives me the “your device is rooted” screen.
I also tried another app that I knew had a payment feature I could not use because “for your safety, we don’t trust rooted devices”. The payment feature still doesn’t work either (but I haven’t uninstalled and reinstalled this app).
Any idea as to why the SafetyNet seems not to be working for me even though my device passes the test?
What I tried:
- installing the app, then activating the SafetyNet
- activating the SafetyNet, then installing the app
- reboot (a lot)
- with and without Advanced Privacy on (didn’t change a thing for the AppLounge either, but that’s another problem).
I can’t find anything on the forum. The SafetyNet feature seems to have solved everybody’s problem with this app.
