In this guide, we will show you the detailed steps to update Magisk to version 25 and its subsequent builds. Custom development is literally filled with a plethora of mods and apps scattered across various domains.
However, the app that provides root access for applications has always been a favorite of tech enthusiasts. In this regard, the Magisk app is the one that reigns supreme for the past two years. Running without a system without any changes to the system partition, it sees some nifty features up its sleeve.
Aside from the aforementioned and arguably the most important feature of providing root access, it has completely streamlined the flashing process of magisk modules. likewise, it has some built-in provisions for hiding root from various apps by masking its identity and the MagiskBoot feature that allows you to unzip and repack boot images and then root your device.
Then with version 24 onwards, there is also the introduction of Zygisk, which allows developers to execute code in every Android application process.
