    Well, "like" is probably the wrong response, but it's the only one the forum software offers

    It depends on whether you want to use a banking app (though Pokemon Go still seems to be the thing that the blogs use as the reason...).

    SuperSU is certainly less hassle.

    "Since Android 7 Nougat, Google has required that all devices have an isolated secure environment, meaning this change to how SafetyNet verifies bootloader unlocking will affect most devices that are out there. Since older devices without an isolated secure environment obviously can’t perform hardware-backed attestation, Magisk will still be able to hide root access on those devices. But if this change rolls out widely, everyone else will have to make a hard choice between root access and banking apps."

    Well, since I don't use banking apps (A phone is not secure enough for me, and banking apps can be compromised) It won't affect my rooted HTC 10 Evo/Bolt on stock Nougat.
    BTW, it's not my daily driver,, nor does it have an active SIM, but it does have some pentesting tools that absolutely need root to function (or even install).
