Magisk is a suite of open source tools for customizing Android, supporting devices higher than Android 4.2. It covers fundamental parts of Android customization: root, boot scripts, SELinux patches, AVB2.0 / dm-verity / forceencrypt removals etc.

Here are some feature highlights:

  • MagiskSU: Provide root access to your device
  • Magisk Modules: Modify read-only partitions by installing modules
  • MagiskHide: Hide Magisk from root detections / system integrity checks


Android Version Support

  • Android 4.2+: MagiskSU and Magisk Modules Only
  • Android 4.4+: All core features available
  • Android 6.0+: Guaranteed MagiskHide support
  • Android 7.0+: Full MagiskHide protection
  • Android 9.0+: Magisk Manager stealth mode

Bug Reports

Canary Channels are cutting edge builds for those adventurous. To access canary builds, install either Canary Magisk Manager, switch to a Canary Channel in settings and upgrade.

Only bug reports from Canary DEBUG builds will be accepted.

For installation issues, upload both boot image and install logs.

For Magisk issues, upload boot logcat or dmesg.

For Magisk Manager crashes, record and upload the logcat when the crash occurs.

Building and Development

  • Magisk builds on any OS Android Studio supports. Install Android Studio and do the initial setups.
  • Clone sources: git clone --recurse-submodules
  • Install Python 3.6+. For Windows, select ‘Add Python to PATH’ in installer, and run pip install colorama after install.
  • Configure to use the JDK bundled in Android Studio:
    • macOS: export JAVA_HOME="/Applications/Android"
    • Linux: export PATH="/path/to/androidstudio/jre/bin:$PATH"
    • Windows: Add C:\Path\To\Android Studio\jre\bin to environment variable PATH
  • Set environment variable ANDROID_HOME to the Android SDK folder (can be found in Android Studio settings)
  • Run ./ ndk to let the script download and install NDK for you
  • Set configurations in config.prop. A sample config.prop.sample is provided.
  • To start building, run to see your options. For each action, use -h to access help (e.g. ./ all -h)
  • To start development, open the project in Android Studio. Both app (Kotlin/Java) and native (C++/C) source code can be properly developed using the IDE, but always use for building.
  • builds in debug mode by default. If you want release builds (with -r, --release), you need a Java Keystore to sign APKs and zips. For more information, check Google’s Documentation.
