Nowadays, Magisk is one of the well-known tools for acquiring root permissions on Android devices, developed by XDA Senior topjohnwu has received yet another update with some quick bug fixes and additional features.
In this post, I will guide you to root your android phone using Magisk Root, this will include the complete instructions for downloading and installing the Magisk ZIP File in your Android Phone. Without wasting you any more, let’s begin.
What is Magisk?
Back in the days before Magisk, we used to root our Android Devices using SuperSU, which modify the system partitions without any permissions. This method was working fine until Google released the SafetyNet mechanism, which does not allow the users to tweak or modify the device’s system partition due to security reasons. If the device’s system partition is modified, SafetyNet Mechanism will fail in your device and most of your Apps installed on that device will stop working.
That’s where the Magisk comes into the job. Magisk is a ZIP archive that can be flashed directly over any Android OS using Custom Recovery and it roots your device without making any changes to your system partition. Hence, there are no changes in system partition, it easily bypasses Google’s SafetyNet Mechanism and your device passes the safety check successfully.
What is Magisk Manager?
As the name suggests, Magisk Manager is the APP that can be installed on any rooted or non-rooted Android device. Think Magisk Manager like a complete tool package that can be used for several tasks. If you don’t have any Custom Recovery like TWRP, you can root your device with Magisk Manager with ease.
It also provides a complete interface for apps that require root permissions. You can also install tons on Magisk Modules directly from the Magisk Manager. Magisk Manager is the must-have app for any rooted Android Device.
