Custom ROMs and flashable modules have been culturally popular amongst the smartphone wizards ever since their inception. And it is, pragmatically, a rising exponential curve as the admiration keeps on sprouting ever and ever. As the terms “Rooting” and “Magisk Modules” have grown household, it has been customary for android users to unlock their bootloader and access the SuperUser permissions once they get fatigued of their stock vendor shell.
Rooting with Magisk
Magisk is a root method. It is, as XDA describes, a systemless root method which allows you to modify your smartphone without actually modifying it. Naturally, when SafetyNet finds a breach in your system – root, for example – it blocks the installation of apps like Google Pay, Netflix, etc. as a safety feature. Although this feature seems crucial at first, it can be a bummer sometimes. However, with magisk, instead of modifying the entire system files, the modifications are stored safely in the boot partition, which helps the system not get detected by Google SafetyNet; thus, offering an obstruction free root-enforcement.
The Vogue of Magisk Modules
One of the main reasons why Magisk got so popular is because of the Magisk Modules. Magisk Manager hallmarks an integrated repository which attributes an extensive list of installable modules. These modules serve various modifications that anybody can install. This oddity of Magisk became so seamless that it curtailed the efficacy of Xposed Modules; and so on to diminish its adulation amongst the new users.
