Through this guide, users can download Magisk 16.6 Beta ZIP package. Magisk, the popular system-less root utility, has recently been updated to version 16.6. This new build brings in a lot of technical changes along with bug fixes. Talking about root, it still remains as the number one third-party mod most people turn to. Its ever growing app base and constantly increasing functionality are some of the things why root is a must-have for most, if not all, Android enthusiasts. There are multiple utilities available to gain root but the compatibility of Magisk and its system-less approach hasn’t been matched. Further, with the new Magisk 16.6 Beta a lot has been vastly improved, download it from the link ahead.
Magisk relies on system-less root. This approach, technically speaking, is much cleaner and easier to manage. Further, it is quite easy to implement by the end user. All you need is, TWRP custom recovery running on your device. Further, this single ZIP package is compatible with multiple devices from different brands hence you don’t need to wait for a specific package for your device. Gain root through Magisk 16.6 Beta with the complete package download link ahead.

Why Choose and Install Magisk?
Root, as discussed, are administrator privileges on your smartphone. To get these, you can choose from a wide variety of options. From all of these options, Magisk stands out thanks to its systemless approach, guaranteed support and wide user base. Further, Magisk doesn’t only root your phone but it also provides a framework through which most new and popular mods are created – known as Magisk Modules. Adding to it, OTA updates can be handled much better when your system isn’t modified and apps like FlashFire can be used to flash firmware directly from your smartphone.
Many users think that a systemless root approach is somewhat inferior. That isn’t the case, once rooted either through modifying the system or without it, functionality remains exactly the same.
