Magisk is the only way to successfully root most Android devices out there. Just recently, John Wu – the developer behind the project, released a major update to Magisk with v25.0. Followed by Magisk v25.1 fixing some minor bugs. Today, Magisk received another HotFix update fixing some core files. Download the latest Magisk v25.2 APK from the original Github repository.
For now, Magisk v25.2 is quite stable and works with latest Android 13 all the way down to Android 5.0. This is a hotfix update making it more stable to root most Android device.
The previous Magisk v25 was a major update which was a complete rewrite of
MagiskInit. A whole new
sepolicy injection mechanism has been introduced in Magisk 25 solved the “SELinux Problem” once and for all.
MagiskInit is critical software that runs before your device boots up. According to the developer, Magisk has been continually struggling against the more complex partitioning and early mount settings since Android launched Project Treble in Android 8.0. In order to solve the complexity of
magiskinit, a whole new
sepolicy injection mechanism has been introduced into Magisk 25. This should solve the “SELinux Problem.”
Magisk 25.2 is mostly a maintenance release fixing various issues related to MagiskInit.
- [MagiskInit] Fix a potential issue when stub cpio is used
- [MagiskInit] Fix reboot to recovery when stub cpio is used
- [MagiskInit] Fix sepolicy.rules symlink for rootfs devices
- [General] Better data encryption detection
- [General] Move the whole logging infrastructure into Rust
Full Changelog: here.
As we already know, the previous Magisk v24 introduced Zygisk; Magisk in Zygote. When this feature is enabled, a part of Magisk will run in the
Zygote daemon process, allowing module developers to run code directly in every Android apps’ process. Zygisk is inspired by that project Riru and is functionally similar.

Magisk Modules Downloads Repository
Magisk is dropping support to download online modules. You will find Fox’s Magisk Module Manager below so you can restore the Magisk Modules functionality.
The centralized Magisk-Modules-Repo is also gone from Magisk 24. According to the developer, this is due to lack of time and maintenance. The functionality to download modules from the repo is removed in v24.0.
However, as planned by the developer, the MagiskHide has now been removed from Magisk completely. The developer has already put out a statement for the same. You can visit our post on Download Universal SafetyNet Fix post for more explanation.
