After the last stable Magisk v22.1 update, the SafetyNet failed for many users. The reason being developer’s SafetyNet API eas blocked due to some reason. JohnWu, the developer of Magisk, soon released a HotFix for the SafetyNet fail with a beta build; also called Magisk Canary. Here is the latest Magisk 23 ZIP and APK download under stable channel with fix for SafetyNet API errors and pass SafetyNet test.
Magisk 23.0 APK or Magisk 23.0 ZIP also brings several bug fixes. This includes a HotFix for the stub app that causes APK installation to fail. Stub is an extension to hide Magisk app with advanced technique. It supports Android 5.0 and above. Most importantly, Magisk 23 removes support for pre Android 5.0 versions. You can checkout the complete changelog from below.
The previous Magisk version 22 brought a major change by eliminating the need for two separate Magisk Manager app and Magisk ZIP. The developer replaced them with a single Magisk APK. You can also use it as a ZIP by just renaming the .APK file to magisk.zip. According to the developer, the two separate entities often confused people; and also, the Magisk zip and Manager APK versions were co-dependent.
Moreover, there is no need to flash the Magisk zip via TWRP anymore separately; unless you absolutely must. All you need to do is install the main Magisk 23 APK onto your phone and setup everything from within the app.
