Magisk Manager term is very familiar to us these days, mostly who were associated with the word Rooting. Magisk Manager is the best alternative to the Chainfires SuperSu. So many of us still using SuperSu binary for rooting Android devices because it is popular, and Everyone Suggested this method only for the rooting device. But Google added a few security measures on an android marshmallow or later.
It causes some issues for the Rooting process, and those measures prevent the Superuser daemon from doing its job. So, Chainfire developed the Systemless root method for Android devices. Probably you may think that What is the system less rooting? This method involves the process of rooting the android without doing any system partitions so that it named as Systemless root.
In this race, so many other developers follow the same procedure for rooting android. topjohnwu is one of them who was made the system less Xposed framework. Then it leads to doing Magisk, which is also known as Magic Mask.

What is Magisk Manager?
Magisk Manager is an Android app that will help you to Manage the Systemless Modules and Root Privileges. topjohnwu is the developer of the app, and he is a senior member of XDA forums. Why is it so popular now? Because so many modules are developing day by day for this Magisk Manager app that will help you to pass google Safetynet check.
Some of the play store apps don’t allow to run on the rooted devices these days. Those apps follow the Safetynet check and allow the users after passing Google’s SafetyNet API. You may face this situation while using banking applications, Pokemon Go, and Netflix.
To run those kinds of application, you need the Magisk Manager app if you have a rooted device. By enabling the magisk hide on the app, you would able to run whatever application you need, which cannot work on rooted devices.

How to Download Magisk Manager Latest Version
Step 1. Download the Magisk Manager app from the below link. Sadly this app was removed from the PlayStore because it violates the community guidelines of Google.
Step 2. I am assuming that you have not enabled ‘Unknown Sources’ yet in the system settings
Step 3. Install Magisk Manager APK, which you have downloaded from the above link. Then a pop up says you need to enable Unknown Sources. Tap on the settings
Step 4. Scroll down to find the Unknown Sources and Toggle it.
Step 5. Go back and again. Install the Magisk Manager app.
Step 6. It would take less than one minute to complete the installation process and Open the Manager.
Step 7. If your device already rooted with SuperSu, then use the manager app to hide root or other stuff. Or if you want to root with Magisk Su binary, then follow the below steps.

Step 2. The primary requirement is you have Custom Recovery Installed on your device before proceeding further. Boot your device into Custom recovery (I am Using TWRP).
Step 3. Please tap on the Install button on the Home of TWRP and Select the Magisk.zip file from the Directory where you have stored it.
Step 4. Then swipe the Install button. That’s it.
Step 5. After that, Reboot your Android device and open the Magisk Manager to confirm that you have root access or not.
If everything is fine, then I would suggest you to know how to download available modules from the repo. Below is the step by step process to learn more.
How to Download and Install Modules
Step 1. Open the Magisk Manager app and drag the menu from left to right.
Step 2. You can see the download section. Click on it and search for the module that you want from the library.
Step 3. After choosing the module, Tap on Download Icon, as you can see from the below screenshot.
Step 4. A pop up asks you to download or install the module. Here are two ways to install it on your android device.
- If you want to install the module manually [that means by flashing from the TWRP custom recovery], then click on the Download button. The module will save on Storage.
- If you would like to install automatically by the magisk manager app, then you should click on the Install button.
Step 5. It will automatically download and flash the Module on magisk manager app and then reboot the device to activate the module.
How to Use Magisk Hide

How to Uninstall MagiskSu Completely
Step 1. Open Magisk Manager app, and you can see the uninstall button at the bottom of the home
Do you want to unroot the phone? If yes, then proceed by tapping the Uninstall button.
You will be asked as like the below screenshot.
Step 2. Still, Want to Continue. Just Tap on Complete Uninstall button that will remove the Su binary and All the modules you have installed.
- Hide the root access to an app that does not want it.
- There are more chances to pass SafetyNet and many hidden security measures.
- Run Netflix, Android Pay, Pokemon Go and Banking Applications.
- Tons of systemless module is available now.
- Only work on android version 4.2 or above. Nowadays, most people are using Android 5.0 phones or up, and very few now (Literally zero) are using gingerbread devices. I think it’s not a big problem.
- Magisk only supports Gzip compressed boot.img not compressed with lz4.
Magic Mask is the best alternative for the Chainfire’s Supersu in the aspects of a Safetynet check. The major advantage is that you can run the applications which do not run on rooted devices and Google Safetynet check.

Thanks, mate. Finally, I passed the safety net.
Thanks for your response.
I can’t have access root on my phone, how to I fix it?
I cant pass a safety net check, i could in others verions.
I just happened across this guide today.It’s a bit late since I finally did manage to figure out how to use Magisk, however, that being said if people could find this guide first it would help with the roll out of Magisk. I know when I first read about Magisk I thought, “yea right, something else that claims to replace Chainfire”, and honestly I almost passed it by. I mean the “safety net” thing really didn’t matter to me because I don’t play Pokemon and I didn’t think I’d ever use Android Pay, boy was I wrong. I still don’t play Pokemon, and I don’t expect that to change, but wow Android Pay is so easy, I now use it all the time. What I am so ineloquently trying to say is put this on the Magisk XDA thread unless it’s a secret, LOL
Great guide on Magisk Manager… but recently I am quite tied up so no chance to actually do some rooting.

I rootet my Samsung J6 some month before with help from xda-infos. Sometimes in the last week Magisk updatet itself. I never had any problems. Today morning Magisk asked for update. I say ok – then I saw some seconds a DOS-like windows with activities like “flashing” “boot” etc. Then Magisk asked for “ok” to reboot. It switched down and did not restart. Now my phone is dead. When I press power and VOL-Down about 15 secondes then a short Samsung startscreen ist to be seen. It disappers after 5 seconds and nothing more happens. Pessing the keys pemanent then I have a loop with 15 seconds black, 5 seconds “Samsung” and so on. Is there any possibility to bring the phone back to live?
If you can you able to turn the device into recovery mode (power and volume up), then flash uninstaller.
I cannot do anything. Your Softwareupdate has bricked my Phone. And the updater did not warn before flashing. Otherwise i would have saved all photos of the last 3 days and other import things. I had some updates of magisk in the last week. And never any problem.
The only thing that happens is after pressing Pwr and VolDn togeter after about 15 seconds the Samsung textlogo comes shortly. And disappears after 3 secondes. Loop as long as I press.
I tried al lot of combinations of the keys. Nothing!
I think there is no way to bring it to live again? Or can anybody help please?

After flashing Magisk Su via TWRP, you installed Magisk Manager. Right?
LG Smart Thinq is an application that does not run on root phones. So far, Magisk has done a good job because the application no detects root.
As of the last update of this application from September 2, 2019, Magisk is no longer able to make it run.
Is there a solution to this problem?
