A lot of you have been using Masgisk as the go-to tool for rooting an Android device. Though there are a couple of ways you can flash and root your device (some even prefer to go to customer care), Magisk is the best and top-notch tool to root a smartphone. Rooting your smartphone can benefit in many ways- the best one being, being able to receive Android builds which are no longer rolling out from the official end.
On October 3, 2020, Magisk v21.0 was released with support for Android 11. Everyone was extremely happy, especially Pixel users. Pixel devices have already received the Android 11 update- with custom skins supporting Android 11 to roll out soon, users were eagerly looking for an upgrade.
The even better part about the Magisk tool is the supporting applications like Magisk Manager and MagiskHide (which bypasses root detection). Click the link below to get the Magisk v21.1 (zip file). Also, download the uninstaller just in case you want to delete the tool from your device in the future.
