Beta Magisk 15.4 – Details:

Here are the release note for beta Magisk 15.4:

  • Massive MagiskBoot Improvements
    • A lot more boot images are supported with magiskboot.
  • Massive Magisk Manager Optimizations
    • Removal of JNI in Magisk Manager, and great simplification in Magisk’s building system for signing zips. Also, the portion of dealing with root is migrated to libsu, an Android Library. There are also massive improvements in the way Magisk Manager handles the superuser database.
  • Socket Obfuscation
    • In previous Magisk releases, the daemon listens to a specific Unix socket, and requests can be sent via the socket to remotely start a root shell from the daemon and connect STDIN/OUT/ERR to the current terminal/process. So technically speaking, a process can directly talk to the socket instead of calling “su”, since what “su” does can be oversimplified as basically establishing a socket connection to the daemon. This means that even if MagiskHide is enabled, any app can discover the socket entry Magisk uses and detect, or even request root access. Starting from this release, the socket name will be randomly assigned each time the device boots up, so processes with MagiskHide enforced can effectively be blocked from root access.
