Installation


Where to start

It’s always a good idea to read through, at least, the release thread for information about what Magisk is and how to install it. Other useful information can be found in the official Magisk Documentation over on GitHub and the support thread.

Known issues

There may be issues with certain devices, ROMs and/or apps and Magisk. Check the release thread for information about currently known issues.

Things to keep on your device

There are a couple of things that are good to keep on your device, making it easier to recover from any problems that might arise.



Installation

Installing Magisk is usually quite straightforward, but make sure to follow the installation instructions in the official Magisk Documentation. After you've got Magisk installed you can install Magisk Modules through the Manager or via a custom recovery (e.g. TWRP).

Since Google and different OEMs are changing things a lot starting from Android Pie, there are popping up more and more limitations for installing and running Magisk. Make sure to take a look at the docs to see if there's any specific instructions that apply to your device.

Note! On A/B devices it might be a good idea to not install TWRP, but only boot it through fastboot:
fastboot boot twrp.img

Actually installing TWRP may lead to issues booting the device if you also install Magisk, since the recovery resides in the boot image.

Recovery mode

What is this "Recovery mode" that I see in the Magisk Manager?

Recovery mode needs to be enabled if you are installing Magisk on a system-as-root device that does not have a A/B partition setup. On these devices you need to install Magisk into the recovery image rather than the boot image, hence "Recovery mode".
