I'm trying to install SSL certificate required by the HttpCanary app, but when I enter my PIN to install it, the PIN just keeps popping up indefinitely and I can't install it.

So is there a way to bypass the certificate installer and install the certificate on my own with root help?

    Copy root certificate to /etc/security/cacerts/ and set correct permissions (DAC and MAC). That's all. You need to remount /system R/W. Take care of dm-verity, if applicable. Or make use of bind-mount if don't want to modify /system partition. Some Magisk module may also do that, as suggested by @beeshyams – Irfan Latif Dec 27 '19 at 18:23

    App help says to reboot device. You can try that – beeshyams Dec 27 '19 at 18:27
  • @beeshyams I downloaded the module but I'm not sure how to access it, I guess it's through the terminal but how exactly? – Basel Qarabash Dec 27 '19 at 23:45
  • @Irfan Latif I did what you described (not the dm verity part, cause I'm not sure what's that), and I think it got installed because I can see it in the system certificates, the problem is whenever I try to enable it it just get disabled automatically, I rebooted the device with the same result – Basel Qarabash Dec 28 '19 at 0:01
  • Then it didn't help in your case. Sorry – beeshyams Dec 28 '19 at 1:33
