Just swapped One+6T running /e/OSv1.9 (screen stopped working but phone still alive) to Motorola Edge also running /e/OSv1.9. Both phones have Magisk with configured Deny List plus Safety NetFix. The One+6T ran Starling Bank app fine but Starling on Mortorola blocks app because phone is rooted.
Any suggestions for a cure - followed instructions using BusyBox from 2019 but Magisk has changed since then.
Apologies for my slow reply. I have managed to get Starling to work but I am not sure if I know why. I assume you have Magisk running and within that modules MagiskHide Props Config and Universal SafetyNetFix running and on. I am not sure how much detail to go into…here goes.
Quick Fix (possibly): log into your Starling account via a web browser on your phone (not on PC). This directs you to the Starling App and then I found I could login. Bizarre - because the Starling App would not allow me to login.
I did experience problems installing Magisk on Motorola Edge because the recovery file (modified in Magisk) exceeds 100MB and that creates a problem loading it into a partition through “flash boot”. I tried altering the size of file that a partition could accept using the “-S” command but could not get it to work. The alternative is to flash into recovery. It is a little more fiddling around but the instructions work on this link https://droidwin.com/root-lineageos-magisk-boot-img/.
There is a further wrinkle - the Safety NetFix software did not seem to be working - there is a work around that you should be able to find on Github (File name may help search: safetynet-fix-v2.3.1-MOD_3.0.zip). Once I went through all this all my apps that refused to work on a rooted phone worked - except one (an EV charging app).
EV Charging problem - default privacy settings are to block all trackers but there is one that always seems to cause problems “Mobile Engagement” which has to be on to get a lot of apps to work. BTW that app does not apply to Starling Bank.
Sorry it has taken so long to answer and my rather wordy reply.
I do not have Magisk installed, i have never needed it in the past, but it is looking like this is something i need to do. Having never installed Magisk, do i need to do a re-install os?
I tried your quick fix, and that also worked for a short period of time, but would like to get it fixed permanently
You don’t need to re-install recovery Magisk will run with your current OS.
However, you will need to follow the install procedure which is a bit circuitous. Depending on the recovery you have (ie phone) you might have up follow slightly different process.
There is plenty of help on the internet, eg https://droidwin.com/root-lineageos-magisk-boot-img/
Bit there will be specific for your phone.
If you get stuck let me know.
