A new update for the very famous Android Rooting app called Magisk is now available from the developer topjohnwu. The latest version of Magisk comes as Magisk 20 along with compatibility with Android 10, the latest OS from Google which was released last month along with the September Security Patch.
The Magisk Manager is a must-have app when you have rooted your Android device. It is a supporting application that works with Magisk zip. It is a one stop solution to all the root-related issues that later arrive after rooting your device.
Say you want to download a Banking app on your phone or you want to install the latest OTA Updates. At such times if you root using traditional methods to root your device you may not be able to do any of the above.
However, if you root your device using Magisk, you do not have to worry about rooting and then unrooting and then again rooting your phone. Magisk will root your device without altering or modifying its system partition. Thus the OTA Updates can be installed without losing the root.
Magisk Manager is a supporting app to the Magisk Root. With the Xposed Framework mixed into it, the manager app lets you install some modules on your device.
In the latest update, it has undergone some User Interface changes and has now got better support for earlier Android devices running on pre-5.0 OS. Sorting modules by name are now possible. In short, the latest version works well with almost all the devices.
The Google Pixel phones, Essential Phone, Samsung Galaxy S10, OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro, Redmi K20Pro, etc. have already received the Android 10 update. Just recently, the Nokia 8.1 received the Android 10 OTA Update. Since the latest Android OS i.e. Android 10 will be seen in all the coming Android devices and many of the flagship devices of earlier years will receive the Android 10, the latest Magisk 20 will be useful for rooting all those devices.
