Magisk is one of the best tools for Android phones. If you’ve rooted your Android phone before or even researched root at some point in the past few years, you must know about Magisk. And recently Magisk developer John Wu has released a new Magisk Canary build (d7e7df3b) (23010). And it comes with several changes as compared to the previous Magisk build which was released in May 2021.
Although you should be excited about the new features and support for Android 12, there is one feature going away which is Magisk Hide. Magisk Hide is a great feature for many users. Developer John Wu has left Apple to join Google’s Security Team. And this is one of the reasons behind Magisk Hide Drop. But Magisk is still the best and support for the latest Android version will give more users to try systemless root.
The previous Magisk v23.0 still works with Android 12, but later when developers start upgrading their apps, it won’t work properly. But with the new Magic Canary, Android 12 support is official and you can use it right away without worrying about future app upgrades for Android 12.
It has been almost half a year since the release of the last Magisk build. The Magisk 23.0 was released in May and this is the first Magisk release since then. Zygisk is the new feature that you can get with the new Magisk Canary. John Wu has explained the concept of Zygote feature in his State of Magisk post.
Like always, John Wu has shared the changelog for the Magisk Canary (d7e7df3b) (23010) changelog that you can check below.
