With each new version of Android, Google strengthens the security and privacy of the OS. The latest Android 10 is no different as the changes are under-the-hood focused majorly on security and privacy. As such, getting root access on the Android 10 indeed is a challenge, but the reputed Magisk developer – Topjohnwu had been successful in rooting the Android 10 even since its first developer preview. The new Magisk 20.0 brings nothing but improved support for Android 10.
It’s in Magisk 19.0 Beta when the Magisk for the first time supported Android 10 devices. However, it left a lot to be desired since the MagiskHide feature – which is considered as the USP of Magisk didn’t function as expected. The subsequent updates to Magisk tried to fix the issues, but still, certain issues persisted on some devices here and there. With the Magisk 20.0, all the previously existed issues are getting rectified all for good.
- [MagiskBoot] Support inject/modify mnt_point value in DTB fstab

Accompanying the Magisk 20.0 is the latest Magisk Manager 7.5.3. Here is its changelog.
