As of 2020, Magisk is the most recommended and popular rooting solution for many mobiles. A major part of its success is from the consistency of quality updates and the developer’s activity. Beta, Canary, and eventually Stable channels of Magisk frequently update with better support and exciting new features. The rooting solution’s front-end client, the Magisk Manager, also get improvements from time to time. For example, “topjohnwu” announced that we would get a drastically redesigned User Interface(UI) in its next version.
The developer published a short video of the new UI on Twitter. This UI was created by XDA Junior Member “diareuse.” We are sure that we will see a more refined version of this UI in the Magisk Manager’s stable version. As we can see in the video attached below, the app now has many colors and icons to go with them. The opening screen of the application shows all the general information like Magisk and Android versions and also some options for donations. You can toggle between activities from the navigation bar placed at the bottom of the app. The Superuser section includes SafetyNet status and MagiskHide options. Below both the Magisk and Magisk Manager versions on the introduction page, we can see the SafetyNet status. The third tab in the navigation bar is for Modules.

Does Magisk Manager Need a Complete Redesign?
Even though the Magisk Manager needs a redesign, we may have a few complaints about the new user interface. For example, in the primary activity, information like version numbers and package names only take around half of the available width, which is sometimes not enough. So, we don’t recommend making a separate screen for SafetyNet status. Though there are some customization options like the ability to change the main theme color and the grid column size, it is good to implement modern design principles in all useful applications.
