Another major Magisk release! This time our focus is not the core Magisk implementation, but rather on improving the whole Magisk user experience.
Ever since the first Magisk release, Magisk (the core components) and Magisk Manager (the companion app) are released separately and isn’t necessarily always in sync. This leads to some confusion and a lot of complexity when downloading/installing Magisk through the app. Starting from v22.0, the Magisk app (renamed from Magisk Manager) includes everything it needs within the APK itself, making installation a 100% offline process.
Custom recovery lovers, no worries! The Magisk app APK itself is a custom recovery flashable zip, just like MAGIC™🌈. Check out the updated installation guide for more info.
Another major breakthrough in this release is that devices lower than Android 9.0 can now also use the advanced app hiding technique to hide the Magisk app. Due to this incompatible change, RESTORE THE EXISTING MAGISK MANAGER BACK TO NORMAL BEFORE UPGRADING IF HIDDEN!
