After the success of Magisk v15.0, the developers of this firmware are now ready to introduce the new and updated version Magisk v15.2. This version has more advanced features from the previous version and you can easily install it on your phone. In this latest version, XDA developer Topjohnwu has fixed the boot loop issue which caused on some devices like OnePlus 5 or 5T. The Magisk v15.2 also included the new SELinux policy rules which improve the MagiskHide support on Samsung devices.
Magisk is a powerful tool which will provide multiple solutions for most of your problems and also helps in enhancing the performance of your Android Mobile Phone. Also, the Magisk is considered as the biggest replacement for SuperSU rooting app which is developed by Chainfire. This app not only gives you the access to root your phone but also has more features as compared to SuperSU.
The updated Magisk v15.2 is stable enough to use on a daily driver phone. With the use of this, you can easily add various modules to customize the inner Android experience same as Xposed Framework did. The developers of Magisk has done very hard work for adding up many new features with which you can do various things along with root. Also, this allows you to hide root and root-enabled apps from Android’s SafetyNet API, bank apps, and various other security apps.
Magisk also allows you to get root access without modifying the system partition just like Systemless root. Also, you will get OTA update even after the device is rooted. With Magisk, you get more control, and also use Android Pay with root. In this article, I am going to provide you the full guide for downloading and Installing the Magisk v15.2 updated version successfully for rooting of the phone.
