Introduction

Magisk is a suite of open source tools for customizing Android, supporting devices higher than Android 4.2. It covers fundamental parts of Android customization: root, boot scripts, SELinux patches, AVB2.0 / dm-verity / forceencrypt removals etc.

Here are some feature highlights:

  • MagiskSU: Provide root access to your device
  • Magisk Modules: Modify read-only partitions by installing modules
  • MagiskHide: Hide Magisk from root detections / system integrity checks

Building and Development

  • Magisk builds on any OS Android Studio supports. Install Android Studio and do the initial setups.
  • Clone sources: git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk.git
  • Install Python 3.6+
    (Windows only: select 'Add Python to PATH' in installer, and run pip install colorama after install)
  • Configure to use the JDK bundled in Android Studio:
    • macOS: export JAVA_HOME="/Applications/Android Studio.app/Contents/jre/jdk/Contents/Home"
    • Linux: export PATH="/path/to/androidstudio/jre/bin:$PATH"
    • Windows: Add C:\Path\To\Android Studio\jre\bin to environment variable PATH
  • Set environment variable ANDROID_HOME to the Android SDK folder (can be found in Android Studio settings)
  • Run ./build.py ndk to let the script download and install NDK for you
  • Set configurations in config.prop. A sample config.prop.sample is provided.
  • To start building, run build.py to see your options.
    For each action, use -h to access help (e.g. ./build.py all -h)
  • To start development, open the project in Android Studio. Both app (Kotlin/Java) and native (C++/C) source code can be properly developed using the IDE, but always use build.py for building.
  • build.py builds in debug mode by default. If you want release builds (with -r, --release), you need a Java Keystore to sign APKs and zips. For more information, check Google's Documentation.
