MagiskIf you wanted to get root access up until Android Nougat, the most preferred tool was SuperSU. However, since Android SafetyNet, that is no longer the case. SafetyNet is a feature now built in to Android that will not allow you to use certain apps unless Safetynet deems it is safe to do so. One of the things that means is that you are using a device that is not rooted. Magisk is the new rooting tool that allows you to get root access, similar to SuperSU, but where the two apps differ is you can toggle off root access with Magisk, thus allowing you to use the apps that are guarded by SafetyNet.
