In this guide, we will. show you a nifty workaround that will allow you to use numerous Knox features and apps on your rooted Samsung device. Gaining administrative privileges by rooting your device via Magisk gives you a slew of intriguing goodies. Some of the noteworthy ones include the ability to welcome tons of Magisk Modules, LSposed Framework, Viper4Android, and the like. Likewise, you could also flash a custom kernel and overclock the device’s CPU.

However, this is just one side of the coin. Carrying out these tweaks brings in quite a few risks and drawbacks as well. For starters, the process requires an unlocked bootloader which will wipe off all the data and might nullify the warranty. Likewise, SafetyNwt and Play Integrity tests will fail resulting in your inability to use any banking and payment apps. However, the great thing is that there’s always a workaround to bypass these issues.

For instance, using a custom build.prop fingerprint, you could easily pass the Integrity Test, which when combined with Magisk Hide will allow you to pass the SafetyNet as well. At the worst, if nothing else works out then you always have the option to go back to stock, unroot your device, and relock the bootloader. Once you are in the stock ecosystem, you’ll be able to use the banking and payment apps without any issues.

Unfortunately, all this doesn’t hold true with Samsung devices. As soon as you unlock the bootloader and root them, the Knox will be triggered. Since this is an eFuse embedded in the motherboard, so once it gets invoked, there’s no going back. You wouldn’t be able to use numerous security and banking apps on your device even if you revert to a complete stock environment. This is because Knox is a hardware component and no software-level tweak could revert the flag state from 0x1 to the default 0x0.

All in all, you might have to bid adieu to apps like Galaxy Wearable, Samsung Flow, Samsung Health, Samsung Health Monitor, Secure Folder, Secure Wi-Fi, Private Share, Samsung Pass, and Samsung Wallet (Pay). Fortunately, a developer has managed to find an impressive workaround using which you could some of the aforementioned apps and Knox features on your rooted Samsung device. So without further ado, let’s check out how this could be achieved.

FAQ 1: Can I Use Samsung Pay on Rooted Device

Unfortunately no. Samsung Pay is among the very few apps that you wouldn’t be able to use on your rooted Samsung device even after you carry out the aforementioned tweak.

FAQ 2: Magisk Hide vs KnoxPatch

The apps that you are trying to hide via KnoxPatch shouldn’t be added to the Magisk Hide as it will result in overlapping and the module will not be able to hide root from that app. So only use Magisk Hide to hide from Google Apps whereas you could use the Knox Patch to hide root from the Samsung apps.
