How to install Magisk on any Android Device

This method works by flashing the Magisk ZIP in TWRP, so you’ll need to install the custom recovery before you begin. Much like Magisk itself, there are multiple ways to install TWRP. If you’re rooted, you can use this method, but note that you’ll have to do a full unroot in SuperSU after you’re done.If your phone has a Fastboot interface (most phones do), you can use this guide to install TWRP. Just follow steps 1–5 exactly as they’re depicted, then use Method 2 in Step 7 to flash the TWRP image file for your particular model.If your phone does not have a Fastboot interface, the instructions for installing TWRP will vary. We’ve covered many of these methods in separate tutorials that are linked out in the following guide, so this is a perfect place to start:

Step 2: Download the Magisk ZIP

With TWRP installed, the next step is to download the Magisk ZIP. This is a flashable file that will install the underlying Magisk framework on your phone, and it will also give you systemless root in the process. So go ahead and grab the ZIP from the following link.

Step 3: Flash Magisk in TWRP

Next, boot your phone into recovery mode, then tap the “Install” button in TWRP’s main menu. From there, navigate to your device’s Download folder, then select the Magisk ZIP. After that, just swipe the slider at the bottom of the screen to install Magisk, then tap “Reboot System.”

Step 4: Install Magisk Manager

When you get back up, you’ll have the framework installed, but you’ll still need the Magisk Manager app to manage root access and install Magisk modules. This app is no longer available on the Play Store, so you’ll need to have “Unknown Sources” enabled to install it.

Other than that, just head to the following link, which will show you all available versions of the Magisk Manager app. Download the newest version, then when that’s finished, tap the Download complete notification to launch the APK. Finally, press “Install” when prompted.

Step 5: Verify Root & SafetyNet Status

Next, go ahead and open the Magisk Manager app. If everything went off without a hitch, you’ll see a message towards the top of the screen that says “MAGISKSU (topjohnwu)” with a green checkmark next to it. This means your phone is now officially rooted, and since it was done with Magisk, it’s a systemless root.

Aside from that, the main advantage of Magisk is that you can have root without tripping SafetyNet. To verify that your phone still passes Google’s SafetyNet check, press the corresponding button towards the top of the screen. If you see two extra green check marks after this test is run, you’re all set to go!

If your phone doesn’t seem to want to pass the SafetyNet test at this point, it’s likely because of leftover modified files from a previous root method or system mod. You’ll have to do a bit of troubleshooting to fix it.
