Magisk quickly became one of the most popular methods for root of Android devices. Since the developers released the first build in 2016, it was the right choice for many users who want to root their devices. It is an alternative to SuperSU already in itself very popular. However, Magisk has some advantages over SuperSU that made it so famous.
First, it installs on Android phones using a method called “systemless”. This means that it guarantees root access without modifying any system files. This is great because it ignores Google SafetyNet, which does not allow users to use certain apps if there is root access.
There are some apps like Snapchat and Pokemon GO that do not work or force it to close if they detect that the system is rooted. This occurs because they check if these system files have been modified or not. With Magisk, you can use these apps because the files remain intact.
In addition to root, Magisk offers users the ability to install various modules to enhance the experience, similar to the Xposed Framework. There are many modules you can choose from. Then continue reading the article if you want to know how to make the Android phone root with Magisk.
