    Well putting an official image on for a different OS is different from a custom one. But I didn’t ask the original question but it was getting lost in the other thread and it’s worth getting an answer on.

    There definately are sometimes apps that don’t work on rooted phone. Pokemon Go was one I ran into couple years ago…early versions worked fine, then there was some versions with easy workarounds (rename su binary) then stopped working and by then I didn’t care about it enough, but I think there were further workarounds for a while.

    I also believe things like tap-to-pay may not work on rooted phones, something about safetynet.

    They are working fine using magisk as root-solution.

    People are still, and depending the OS and Security Patch root isn’t even necessary. For that specific app there has always been a workarond until today. Banking/TAN apps however are most of the time unusuable on rooted or even non-stock unrooted roms. If someone really depends on those apps, i would not recommend rooting.

    In my opinion, rooting is not as necessary as it was years ago. An unlocked bootloader to flash a custom recovery is enough to get rid of bloatware and unwanted system-apps, manually backing up and restoring app-data, and tampering with the hosts file for example.

    People really should try ADB, we can disable (almost) anything without the need for neither root nor flash, just a pc and a usb-cable…
