Can one replace Odin root with Magisk root?

    I have an Odin rooted S7 and obviously most banking etc apps don't work on it.

    The Magisk route offers the ability to hide the root from specified apps. I tried to install Magisk. It is a 2 part thing. The 2nd part installs but the 1st part says something about boot sector is incompatible and would not do it.

    Can you provide more details? Model number, and build number. Do you have SuperSU installed?

    I do have SuperSU Free v2.82-SR3. Normally I buy Pro versions of anything that actually works :) Superuser is enabled.

    It can be done. You have a exynos device so it wouldn't be hard.
