Want to root your android device? There is no better way than popular Magisk. It even replaced SuperSU which was earlier used for rooting android devices, stock firmware, and custom ROMS. But Magisk as a rooting software had developed and matured with time and became one of the most popular of all. The developers of Magisk has recently released a new version of Magisk v21.0 with the support of Android 11 along with the latest Magisk Manager v8.0.0 APK.
The features of Magisk are inclusive of MagiskHide for bypassing root detection, third-party modules support, the inevitable gaining of systemless root access on Android, etc. Since the latest Magisk v21 brings about Android 11’s support, you can root the Android 11 running smartphones and tablets from multiple manufacturers. These categories are inclusive of Google’s Pixel lineup, MIUI 12 for Xiaomi devices, AOSP based Android 11 GSI builds for Project Treble devices, and a lot more of them.
This latest version of Magisk has not excluded the best features from the previous versions like Magisk v20.4 which had the support of Android 10 OS update. Not only this but there have been modifications in the SuperSU for the better rooting in other Android devices. Changes are made to the way Magisk hides root detection. Magisk v20 comes with a full proof solution for root detection for Google Pay, Samsung Pay, or any other banking app for that of Android devices. The latest version of the Android 11, 10, 9.0 Pie, 8 Oreo, Marshmellow, etc. have been implemented with the SafetyNet bypass.
The all-new Magisk 21.0 has been developed with bug fixes and stability improvements along with the Magisk manager getting an update too. Now, in case you no longer need Magisk and want to unroot your Android device, all you need to do is flash the Magisk uninstaller zip via TWRP recovery.
