New Magisk 19.1 revision is now available and you can immediately download universal Magisk 19.1 ZIP package with this guide. Unlike the last 19.0 Beta release, 19.1 is being classed as a Stable build. If you are unaware, Magisk has been the premiere rooting solution for all Android devices during past couple of years. Its system-less root approach — no modifications to the system partition — and extensive compatibility has made it quite a popular root utility. Improving on what has already been achieved, topjohnwu is further perfecting Magisk to make it even more optimized.
For changes, Magisk 19.1 brings in some major improvements especially if you are coming from older stable Magisk 18.1. Magisk is now image-less and there is native 64-bit support. Further, with new Magisk, users can root up-to Android Q Beta 2. Other than that, there are couple of technical changes that improve functionality, performance and compatibility.
Magisk 19.1 (Beta) – Changelog:
This is the complete technical change-log for Magisk 19.1:
- Support recovery based Magisk
- Support Android Q Beta 2
- New sbin overlay setup process for better compatibility
- Allow long pressing volume up to boot to recovery in recovery mode
- Use proper system_root mirror
- Use self created device nodes for mirrors
- Do not allow adding new files/folders in partition root folder (e.g. /system or /vendor)
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.
