Users can now download latest Magisk 17.2 Beta to gain root on latest smartphones and other Android devices. The new version numbering scheme from topjohnwu — developer behind Magisk — is that every dot number release is classed as a Beta whereas as a major jump such as from 17 to 18 is classed as stable hence, latest 17.2 build is classed as a Beta. Within this iteration, there has been a large focus on making Magisk compatible with games and apps that rigorously check for SafetyNet. Using Magisk 17.2, users can run games like Fortnite and PS4 Remote Play app without any issues. You can read ahead to download the complete Magisk 17.2 ZIP package that can be flashed directly with a custom recovery such as TWRP.
Before this, Magisk got updated to v17.0 which was a major jump from older v16. Building on the same set of new features, this revision tries to address any issues that popped up while also growing the feature list. Systemless approach of gaining root through Magisk and continued software support gained this utility popularity and it is good to see that the developer is staying true to that. You can read ahead for a more detailed and technical change-log as well as the complete download link for Magisk 17.2 Beta.

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.
