Ever since the Magisk developer, Topjohnwu returned from his mandatory military training, the great Magisk has been getting improved day after day. We’ve seen the releases of multiple beta builds over the past few weeks literally bringing support for new devices and much under the hood optimizations. Now, a new Magisk Beta 16.7 is up with hot fixes for certain OnePlus and Huawei devices.

As per the dev, a careless error on previous beta builds caused vague boot to fastboot mode on his so-called half-treble devices such as OnePlus 5/5T. And, with the new beta the bug is finally squashed by proper implementation of mount partitions. Hence, those OnePlus users having the issue on rooted stable OOS can update to the latest beta to get rid of the problem.

As far as the Huawei devices are in consideration, the issue caused by problematic logcat generation of EMUI firmware is being fixed. According to him, the EMUI’s logcat for some reason will change the permission of its output file, and since Magisk will do several logcat commands dumping output to /dev/null, the permission is messed up, causing tons of stuff to break, including adbd; the issue is now fixed.
