Topjohnwu, the developer of Magisk, recently started supporting officially, the Android 10 firmware update. The update includes significant changes to the MagiskSU (superSU) rooting method and structure. Now, a more optimized Magisk 20.2 and Magisk Manager 7.5.0 APK build are available for download.
Next, this renowned Android developer implemented a new, highly reliable Magisk Hide method for root detection apps. And it bypasses the advanced SafetyNet check by Android with the previous Magisk 20.1.
As per the update log, the new Magisk 20.2 features several under the hood optimizations. For example, optimizations to the way MagiskSU manages communication between application and daemon. It means higher stability for the rooted Android devices. To accompany the latest Magisk 20.2 build, the developer also released Magisk Manager 7.5.0 APK in Support of the new MagiskSU communication method.
The earlier stable version of Magisk 20.1 made a new Hide method. So, if you want a full proof solution for root hide (or root detection) like Google Pay, banking apps, Samsung Pay on rooted devices, then it is suggested to install the latest Magisk 20.2. The update comes with all the features from Magisk v20.1 and earlier. It should also pass the SafetyNet test of Android 10, Android 9.0 Pie, or earlier. In addition, the update also works on devices running Android 10, Android 9 Pie, Android 8.0 or Android 8.1 Oreo, and earlier. The newest and previous versions of Magisk can root most of the smartphones all the way to Android 4.2.
The update works perfectly for most of the phones. But, some users, particularly using LG devices, proclaiming that the new Magisk 20.2 may not work on their phones. So for LG devices, you can either backup before you install Magisk 20.2 or be with the previous Magisk v20.1and Magisk Manager v7.4.0.
