Magisk doesn’t need to be introduced to the world of Android custom ROMs, so we’ll spare you some time. Topjohnwu has announced today that Magisk is being updated to version 22.0. The need and desire for root-level access to Android devices has helped Magisk to stay on top of the list for a number of years as one of the most dynamic and creative root solutions. The new update only goes to show that the above is real.

In the past few weeks, we have seen a couple of updates from topjohnwu in various forms, ranging from the merger of the Magisk Manager app with the Magisk installer ZIP to news regarding compatibility with Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S21 series. Earlier today, all the updates, technical chats, and discussions finally took the shape of a major update via stable channel. Version 22.0 formally marks the end of a separate Magisk Manager companion app, as the Magisk APK — simply referred to as the Magisk app from now on — can act as both a typical Android installation package and as a flashable ZIP file recognized by TWRP.

v22.0 changelog:
