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.
