Additions:
If you end up in a bootloop when installing Magisk, flash the [[https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445 | Magisk uninstaller zip]] in recovery (you migth also have to flash a clean boot image, which will help if there's something wrong with the boot image on your device) and start over. If the uninstaller fails, just flash your unmodified copy of the boot image and you should be good to go. There’ll probably be some leftover files and folders from Magisk laying around in /cache and /data/adb, but these can be removed manually.

Additions:
In the Magisk log you'll sometimes see """---------"" beginning of crash". This is perfectly normal and unless you experience issues with Magisk it is nothing to worry about. Since Magisk uses Android's logcat for collecting logs this will appear in the log as soon as there is any kind of crash occuring on your device, regardless if it has anything to do with Magisk or not.

Additions:
A bootloop might also be because you’ve installed a module that Magic Mounts new files or folders to the root of /system, etc. On some devices this will cause a bootloop. Contact the creator of the module you’re trying to install and let them know… //Also see [[MagiskModuleIssues | "Module Issues"]]//.
This might also be happen when the Magisk Manager update doesn't go as planned and you end up with two Managers installed or the Manager doesn't actually update. Something that might lead to issues... See [[ManagerIssues | "There are two Managers"]] or [[MagiskUpdate | "Magisk not installed"]] for further details.
If your system suddenly becomes unstable, with reboots and system processes stopping, make sure you haven't added any system apps or processes to the MagiskHide list. Because of the way MagiskHide works, it might kill off some pretty important parts of the running system if this kind of apps/processes are on the list, causing all kinds of havok.

Additions:
Many users are reporting about bootloops on Pixel and other A/B devices. Often this is caused by having TWRP installed at the same time as installing Magisk. Since the recovery now resides in the boot image, having these two modifications to the same partition may cause issues. If you want to use TWRP, use fastboot to only __boot__ it, don't install:

===**Issues with f2fs**===
There are many devices that have a faulty implementation of f2fs. These may include Motorola, Lenovo and others. These devices can’t mount the Magisk image properly leading to issues with module installation and possibly superuser access. You might see something like this in the Magisk log:
%%mount /dev/block/loop0->/sbin/.magisk/img failed with 13: Permission denied%%
Finding a kernel with the f2fs bug fixed is one solution and if possible probably the best one. Formating your /data partition as ext4 is another, but some devices won’t be able to boot if /data isn’t formated with f2fs. There’s also the [[https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/guide-magisk-official-version-including-t3577875 | F2FS Loopback Bug Workaround module]] by [[https://forum.xda-developers.com/member.php?u=5228676 | VR25]] that you can try. It moves the Magisk image to the /cache partition instead of /data and may solve issues like this (won't work if /cache is f2fs).

Additions:
===**Magisk not installed**===
After installing Magisk, if the Manager still reports that Magisk is not installed, check if the Manager has been installed to the external or adoptable storage. This is known to cause all kinds of issues, so make sure that the Manager is installed to the internal storage and check again.

Additions:
If a bunch of apps suddenly start force closing after installing Magisk, your ROM might have issues with ""WebView"". More precisely with the signatures for Chrome and Google ""WebView"". You can take a [[https://www.xda-developers.com/guide-sending-a-logcat-to-help-debug-your-favorite-app/ | logcat]] when one of the apps crash and see if there's anything about ""WebView"" in there. The reason is that MagiskHide sets ro.build.type to "user" and this enables the signature check. Ask your ROM developer to fix the signature error... Meanwhile, you can fix it temporarily by disabling MagiskHide, use the Magisk module [[https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/module-magiskhide-props-config-t3789228 | MagiskHide Props Config]] to revert the prop value, or use a [[https://topjohnwu.github.io/Magisk/guides.html#scripts | boot script]] to revert the MagiskHide prop change //(see [[MagiskHideMore | "Reverting prop values set by MagiskHide"]])//.

If there’s just been a new Magisk release it’s also possible that there might be something with Magisk causing the issue. Just keep calm, restore your device like described above //(also see [[MagiskUpdating | Updating]])//, but first make sure to provide proper logs //(see [[MagiskHelp | "Asking for help/reporting bugs"]])//.

===**Magisk Manager crashes/freezes**===
If you're having issues with the Magisk Manager force closing/crashing/freezing at any point, clear data for the Manager or uninstall it and install it again. //Uninstall the Manager by clicking on the “Uninstall” button in the Manager and choosing “Uninstall App”.// This way all Manager related files will be removed.
The Manager crashing might also be caused by using a theme engine to theme the Manager (Substratum, etc). Disable it and reapply after an update to the Manager.
Another reported reason for the Manager crashing is if you've for some reason added the Magisk Manager as a system app. Try de-systemising it and see if that fixes the issue.
If there still are issues, capture a [[https://www.xda-developers.com/guide-sending-a-logcat-to-help-debug-your-favorite-app/ | logcat]] from the crash/freeze and post it in the [[https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/mod-magisk-v1-universal-systemless-t3432382 | support thread]], with a detailed description of the problem //(also see [[MagiskHelp | "Asking for help/reporting bugs"]])//.

A bootloop might also be because you’ve installed a module that Magic Mounts new files or folders to the root of /system. On some devices this will cause a bootloop. Contact the creator of the module you’re trying to install and let them know… //Also see [[MagiskModuleIssues | "Module Issues"]]//.

A bootloop might also be because you’ve installed a module that Magic Mounts new files or folders to the root of /system. On some devices this will cause a bootloop. A common cause is that the module creator have left the “placeholder” file in the module’s system folder.

If you end up in a bootloop when installing Magisk, flash the [[https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445 | Magisk uninstaller zip]] in recovery, flash a clean boot image (the uninstaller restores a copy of the untouched boot image, so this step is “just in case”) and start over //(for bootloops occurring after installing a Magisk module, see [[https://www.didgeridoohan.com/magisk/MagiskModuleIssues#hn_Module_causing_issues_Magisk_functionality_bootloop_loss_of_root_etc | "Module causing issues"]])//. If the uninstaller fails, just flash your unmodified copy of the boot image and you should be good to go. There’ll probably be some leftover files and folders from Magisk laying around in /cache and /data/adb, but these can be removed manually.

===**magisk_daemon -post-fs use a lot of CPU**===
If you suddenly start experiencing high CPU usage and see that a process named magisk_daemon -post-fs is using a lot of your CPU, it's probably caused by having disabled Android logging with an app like Kernel Adiutor or by some other process. Enable logging again and the issue should disappear.
