Rooting an Android can involve a huge risk for our device as well as reducing our user security and trustworthiness level, leaving our most sensitive data accessible for any hacker. However, certain users still want to gain access to all possible configurations of their smartphone's operating system, and rooting methods are getting better and better.
Today we're introducing you to Magisk, a root system that's gaining loads of enthusiasts as it allows us to obtain superuser permissions without altering our system's partition. This difference regarding classic rooting methods offers us a much safer process and prevents applications that usually get blocked on rooted devices from stopping to work.
How to use Magisk
To start off, we have to point out this process isn't within everyone's reach and can be somewhat dangerous. However, if you think that you've got the knowledge necessary to do so, these are the steps to be followed:
- Step 1: you need to have a smartphone with Custome Recovery CWM or TWRP.
- Step 2: download Magisk to your device.
- Step 3: reboot your Android in recovery mode.
- Step 4: choose the Flash option within recovery and select Magisk.
- Step 5: wait for the process to be completed and the system to be rebooted.
- Step 6: if the process has been completed correctly, the Android device should now be rooted.
