How to Install Magisk on Android O 8.0 : Looking for Magisk for your Android phone running on Android O, then you are at right site. This is step by step guide to install Magisk on your Android Smartphone

What is Magisk ?

Magisk is currently the best alternative to Chainfire’s SuperSU. Developed by XDA developer topjohnwu, Magisk is in fact much better than SuperSU in some aspects. No wonder it is becoming the default choice of custom ROM developers. Unlike SuperSU which only grants or denies root permissions for specific apps, Magisk can hide root from an app completely.

Magisk works system-less-ly, in that it doesn’t alter your system partition in any way. This means you can still install official OTA updates without losing root. The rooting method is based on phh’s SuperUser which is an open sourced rooting solution for Android. But rooting is not all that Magisk can do.

Requirements for Installing Magisk

  • Custom Recovery must installed on your device. TWRP recovery Recommended
  • Backup your current Rom before doing this step using TWRP or CWM or any Custom Recovery. In case of bootloop you can restore your device.
Before doing the methods, I just want to warn you that, if you don’t read the steps and do something wrong can brick your device. So be careful, I’m not responsible for any damage to your device

How to Install Magisk on Android O 8.0

  2. Reboot to recovery mode.
  3. If you’re using TWRP recovery, select Install from the menu and select the Magisk zip Swipe right to install.
  4. Once Magisk is flashed, you’ll see the Reboot System option, tap on it
The installer modifies the boot image of your device and creates a new magisk.img partition in your smartphone’s root directory. It also places necessary files in /cache and /data partition.
Although, if you’re already rooted with anything other than MagiskSU, Magisk phh’s superuser or Chainfire’s systemless SuperSU, the installer will try to delete the binaries and the root app from the system partition too. Otherwise, it wouldn’t touch your system.
