TWINT account blocked

My TWINT account got blocked after I rooted my phone.

I've since flashed the stock ROM and locked the bootloader, but I'm still blocked.

Does anyone know how to get out of this?

Umm, unroot your phone so it is back at stock unmodified settings?

Re: TWINT account blocked

It's not that TWINT got blocked, but rather your using TWINT on that phone while it's rooted.

The solution is obvious: Use an unrooted phone, be that this or a different one.

Just stop using the app, stop encouraging the swiss banking cartel

Obviously the phone is now unrooted, after I've flashed the stock ROM and locked the bootloader.

Can't really argue with that, it has been really convenient for online payments though...

Credit cards are even more so and many places abolished extra charges for them now. Twint is doomed

That may be and their decision to use Bluetooth at cash registers is retarded.

Most places I've seen haven't yet and scanning a QR code takes a second.

But anyway, back to topic?

What phone have you got? It could be that is a factory reset did not work, the ROM BIOS has logged that you have rooted the phone (a flash counter), Samsung example here https://www.androidpit.com/reset-flash-counter-to-zero

I have a Mi A1 and completely wiped everything with the official MiFlash tool and the official stock ROM.

Also the play store shows the device as "Certified".
