  • [Daemon] Check whether Magisk Manager is repackaged (hidden), and prevent malware from hijacking com.topjohnwu.magisk
  • [Daemon] Introduce new daemon: magisklogd, a dedicated daemon to handle all logcat related monitoring
  • [Daemon] Replace old invincible mode with handshake between magiskd and magisklogd, one will respwan the other if disconnected
  • [Daemon] Support GSI adbd bind mounting
  • [MagiskInit] Support detecting block names in upper case (Samsung)
  • [MagiskBoot] Check DTB headers to prevent false detections within kernel binary
  • [MagiskHide] Compare mount namespace with PPID to make sure the namespace is actually separated, fix root loss
  • [MagiskSU] Simplify su_info caching system, should use less resources and computing power

  • [ImgTool] Separate all ext4 image related operations to a new applet called “imgtool”
