Download Latest Magisk 16.6 Beta and Magisk Manager 5.8.0: If you are an Android developer or someone who likes to customize each and every part of your Android smartphone then you must have heard about Magisk. If not, Magisk is a tool which is very helpful in achieving root access on your smartphone.
Now, you must be thinking that there is already a tool named SuperSU present for Android to do the same. However, we would like to inform you that Magisk is a systemless method whereas SuperSU is a system-dependent one. This basically means that Magisk does not tinker with any of the files present on your device whereas SuperSU does.
Now, Magisk is much newer than SuperSU and this tool has been in the market from the past 2 or 3 years only. However, the pace at which Magisk has been developed as well as gaining popularity is commendable. Talking about its popularity, we dare say that it has surpassed the popularity of SuperSU quite comfortably. Magisk has been developed by an XDA recognized contributor named as topjohnwu. Earlier this week, topjohnwu announced that a new version of Magisk is now ready for beta testing. This version of Magisk is versioned Magisk 16.6 and is only available in beta form as of now.
Apart from Magisk 16.6 beta, topjohnwu also announced the latest version of Magisk Manager which is an add-on for Magisk to run properly on supported devices. The latest version of Magisk Manager which has been released is Magisk Manager v5.8.0. Talking about the latest improvements to Magisk, we would like to tell you that this version has been released after two long months. But, the improvements seem to justify the wait as this release of Magisk almost supports Project Treble which will be improved further.
Apart from that, some Magisk users reported a loss of root access all of a sudden. If you are one of them then keep in mind that this bug has been fixed now. Now, you can download both the Magisk v16.6 Beta and the Magisk Manager v5.8.0 from right here.
