Now, the Magisk received another update yesterday, which bring fixes some previously bootloop crash issues and other issues for the Huawei and Honor device running on Android Oreo. The latest Magisk systemless root tool is 16.0 version.
In the new update for Magisk, the support for Huawei and Honor devices running on Android Oreo is the biggest change for lots of people. Last week, XDA Developer topjohnwu launched the Magisk for Honor view 10, Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The Magisk for Huawei and Honor devices is an outstanding achievement by topjohnwu because the Huawei and Honor devices are running on the latest HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC which is a bit different than Qualcomm Snapdragon-based devices. Until now, Magisk systemless root tool has never been available on any Huawei and Honor devices.
In the previously Magisk version, some people faced bootloop issue. But the new Magisk 16.0 brings fix for the NDK compiler bug that resolved to cause a bootloop issue.
