Magisk is a suite of open source software developed by John Wu which aims to give root access to Android devices. It currently only supports devices running Android 5.0 and later.

History

In version 21, support for Android 11 was added.[2] In version 22, support for the Samsung Galaxy S21 was added.[3] In version 23, support for Android 5 and earlier was removed.[4]

The original developer John Wu started working for the Android security team in 2021.[5] In 2021, the MagiskHide feature of Magisk was discontinued by the original developer John Wu. Arnoud Wokke from Tweakers argued that there is a high chance this feature will be developed by a third party developer as a Magisk module.[6]
