  1. Hello!

    I am using a Galaxy A53 with Magisk installed. When I unlocked the bootloader on the A53, Widevine was set to L3. I would like to know if it is possible to install Magisk while keeping Widevine at L1.

    Thank you in advance!

    Reply
    • Unfortunately, installing Magisk or modifying the device’s software usually downgrades the Widevine security level to L3, making it unlikely to maintain Widevine L1 while having Magisk installed.

      You’re welcome! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
