What is Magisk?
Magisk is a well-known application in the world of Android devices. It is a tool for customizing Android devices. What is special about this tool is that you can modify the system without really changing it. How is this done? The modifications a person makes a stored in the boot partition, so the real system files don’t change. This way, everything that is done is not detected by Google SafetyNet. SafetyNet is an important security feature, but it blocks apps when the system is being modified. The main advantage of Magisk is that you don’t have to worry about such consequences, and at the same time, you can have modifications like Module. It allows easy customization and has things like ad-blockers and emoji replacements. The modules can be found in the Manager app of Magisk in the slide-out menu. Another great feature of Magisk is its constant updates. They are needed because of the SafetyNet updates, so they don’t affect the productivity and efficiency of Magisk and avoid getting apps blocked.
