Magisk is a relatively new tool for customising your Android phone. Magisk is an excellent tool for users who are interested in making the most of their Android device. It was developed in 2016 by XDA Developer topjohnwu for rooting Android phones and beyond. This tool is much more than just a new way to root your phone, it has better safety and is regularly updated.
Magisk Manager allows you to download modules. A module is essentially an installable modification for your phone. These modules can be ad-blockers, emoji replacements and much more. These help to increase the functionality of your phone. Thousands of modules can be found on the Magisk Manager app.
Magisk is also regularly updated, which was a big issue with its former competitor SuperSU. SuperSU was sold in 2016 and did not receive frequent updates, the creator of SuperSU had also retired. Magisk is regularly updated to battle the updates released by Google Safetynet. The tool is regularly updated to give users consistent root access.
Magisk is known as ‘systemless’ root method as it does not affect the real system files. The modified files are stored in a boot partition. This way, Google’s SafetyNet does not detect the modifications to the system. Magisk Manager is a relatively safe tool, but you should be aware that this tool is not available on the Google Play Store. It has to be downloaded from external sources/websites which may seem legit but could download malicious software on your phone. Also, after gaining super user priveleges, the user has to be very careful about what permission is to be granted to which app, etc. Because one wrong modification can essentially ruin your phone forever. A new update for Magisk Manager is available & it is coming along with version 8.0.4. You can download it from the link down below.
