Magisk is the best alternate to the Chainfire’s SuperSu, it is one of the best alternative to the present system based root method. It is developed by senior XDA developer, Tomjohn and is terming the Magisk as the next Root methodology ahead of SuperSu.
Well, if we compare it with the SuperSu than the Magisk Manager is quite advanced and flexible. it offers you to hid the root access for particular apps. By this way you can enjoy the apps related to banking sector and others on your rooted device. It provide dynamic features which allows you to hide the root for any particular app.
The another popular feature is the systemless access on your device. Users need not to worry about official OTA update as it uses the same system partition as it is before the root. To bring more clarity, earlier, SuperSu altered the System partition on the device to grant root access privileges. But Magisk manager roots your device without doing any change in the system partition.
Further, It gives you the sole Magisk Manager which allows you to upgrade, download, install and manage different module on your device as in-app.

Note: Make sure to remove any other root, best to restore your boot image back to stock
- Via custom recovery:

- Reboot to a custom recovery and flash the flashable zip
2. Via Magisk Manager (Only support v14.0+):
- This method does not need root, and also does not require a custom recovery.
However, you MUST have a stock boot image dump beforehand, and also be able to flash the patched boot image, either through fastboot/download mode or ODIN
- Install the latest Magisk Manager
- If you’re planning to flash the patched boot image through ODIN, go to Settings > Update Settings > Patched Boot Output Format, and select .img.tar. For normal users leave it as the default .img
- Press Install > Install > Patch Boot Image File, and select your stock boot image file
- Magisk Manager will now patch your boot image, and store it in [Internal Storage]/MagiskManager/patched_boot.img[.tar]
- Flash the patched boot image to your device and reboot. Voilà!
