I have never had any problems getting GG to run. I have a rooted Pixel 3a and do not use virtual/parallel space.
I updated to version 101.1 this morning and after having problems with that update, I downgraded back to 101.0. The daemon cannot be loaded even though GG has root privileges according to MagiskManager. RootCheck confirms that my phone is rooted.
The curious thing is that the daemon works on the very first start after a reinstallation. If I close the app and start it again, daemon is no longer loaded.
I have no idea what else can help here and kindly ask for help. A log file is attached.
