Magisk, developed by XDA Senior Recognized Developer topjohnwu, began out as a systemless root method but has since expanded into a much more versatile and powerful tool. But even now, if you want root, the best way to do it for your device is to install Magisk to get superuser access. The twenty-fourth version (v24) of Magisk, which is the most recent major update, is now in the public beta branch. This means that all Android 12 devices will now have full support.
Recently, the developer announced a new update on Tuesday. The next most important thing about this release is the addition of Zygisk (for example, Magisk in Zygote).
This feature opens up a lot of ways to play around since module developers can now run code directly in the process of every Android app. Topjohnwu has also put out the final version of the Zygisk API v2 to make it easier to adapt. Here you can find both the documentation and the module template that you need.
MagiskHide will no longer be used after the release of the new build. However, this is not a surprise because MagiskHide has already been taken away from the Canary channel. Magisk v24.0 doesn’t come with any kind of root hiding feature out of the box, but you can still use third-party modules to avoid root detection and get past SafetyNet.
Also, the central repository for Magisk modules is gone for good. Because of this, you can’t download modules from the repo in version 24.0. Now, the Magisk app will only look for the
updateJson property inside a module and use the corresponding URL to check for, download, and install module updates.
