Why root your Android device?

It’s easy to think of your device and your operating system as being intrinsically linked, but of course, that’s not the case. Rooting allows you to install custom Roms and alternative software kernels, so you can run an entirely new system without getting a new handset. Your device can actually be updated to the latest version of Android OS even if you own an older Android phone and the manufacturer no longer allows you to do so.

Installing Magisk on your phone is done in three steps. The first step is to unlock the bootloader and make it accept unofficial images, the second step is to patch the firmware and flash it through Odin, and the last step is to correctly boot the phone with Magisk installed.

  • This process will wipe your phone. When you unlock the bootloader for the first time to install Magisk, a full data wipe will be performed. Please make a data backup before you continue, otherwise, you will lose all of the data.
  • Installing Magisk on your Galaxy A52s 5G will trigger KNOX. This is an indicator that shows whether the firmware has been tampered with or not. Some stores will refuse warranty service if KNOX is tripped.
